Private Songwriting Teacher

Hello! I absolutely love to write songs! If you are looking for someone who can help you take your songwriting to the next level, or even if you are a beginner who doesn't know where to begin, I can help you succeed! I am proficient in music theory and I am a musician with over 20 years of experience as a classical vocalist, harpist, ukulele player, guitarist, and have been teaching for the past few years--and I absolutely love seeing my students' musical potential become realized!

Songwriting is a beautiful, clever, cathartic, and therapeutic form of expression. There are many different ways to begin the process, especially given your talent--whether you are proficient in guitar playing, harp playing, singing, or anything else. The process of song-writing is different depending on the person. I can help you hone your skills in songwriting as it relates to your unique processes and talents.

Some people begin by hearing the melodies in their heads and humming along, where they

In all things, there is ‘good’, ‘better’ and ‘best’,

‘best’ category.

Mastery over songwriting means adaptability by stepping outside yourself – thus, ironically, getting to know yourself on an even deeper level. There is no "one" right path to writing a song but there are many concepts and techniques that I've acquired at my alma mater Berklee College of Music that have helped me harness the inner creator in my musical path. In our lessons we will be opening the gates to creativity and fearless expression through an understanding of lyric writing, prosody, and harmonic and melodic development. I can't wait to start writing songs together!

Dennis is a very knowledgeable guitarist and lyricist that I feel privileged to be working with
Arjuna
I had a great time with my first guitar/songwriting lesson with Dennis, he took the time to listen to my goals that I would like to achieve and was very informative on an approach to achieve them. He was clear in his instructions and presented more complicated methods in an easy to understand way. I'm excited for my next lesson and my development under his tutoring, and highly recommend Dennis as an instructor for beginners to the more advanced.

Love old-school standards and musical theater? I am an internationally-produced, award-winning musical theatre composer and lyricist, and I'd love to help you learn how to craft a stylish song in the tradition of the 20th Century masters, and how to tell a story and develop characters through songs. I love working with students to deconstruct songs you love and figure out their structural tricks, both lyrically and musically, and can help you to figure out how to apply those structures in your own work. Can also work with you on music theory, notation and computer technology for getting your music written down.

Kim
I took a songwriting class that Kit taught at Schenectady County Community College, and it was a lot of fun and extremely helpful! She knows tons about all sorts of song genres both as a composer and a lyricist, and helped me understand a lot of basic ideas about music composition that I'd never really grasped. I would study with her again if she were back in town!

Lyrically Stuck? Think Like Eddie Vedder

Earlier this week, Eddie Vedder announced the venues for his upcoming solo tour, stopping in 13 cities to promote his 2011 album "Ukelele Songs." The tour begins on April 11th in Las Vegas, and then works across the country, ending on May 16th in Orlando.  Pearl Jam embarks on its European tour just one month after. Vedder's passion-filled lyrics, ranging in topics from personal to political, have made him one of the most prominent songwriters of the rock-and-roll genre.  Pair that with his …
