When the student is ready the teacher will appear and am I glad! This is working out great. Landon is knowledgeable, patient, and talented. Just what I need to expand my musical endeavors.
Marlee M.
My Daughter had her 1st lesson and loved it! Landon was kind patient with just enough silliness for my 6yr old to feel completely comfortable. I was shocked and excited to hear her actually play. When we left she said she couldn’t wait to go back and asked if Landon could be her teacher forever.

Took time to explain so I could understand, great lesson! I can hardly wait for the next one.

So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

As a professional singer/songwriter who has toured around the country, and licensed music to TV networks such as E!, MTV, Netflix, and more, you can expect to learn tips, techniques, and helpful exercises that you can use to write smart, unique songs that come from the heart. Some of the tricks I teach are ones I use personally to help me write. Expect to have fun, be challenged/out of your comfort zone, but to also feel more confident and accomplished in your songwriting abilities!

My daughter enjoyed working with Lia. She was patient, fun and helped build my daughter's confidence when she made mistakes and needed to try again. She was an absolute pleasure to work with!
Sue
LIa is the right fit for my high school student. My daughter has been taking classic piano lessons since 4 years old. She has been looking for an instructor who will allow her to develop her creative side.

Lia customizes her lessons and has reignited my daughters love of piano.

Thanks, Lia.
Tony
Both of my daughters love to sing. We signed up for lessons so they could learn their favorite pop songs; one of my daughters also took piano. They've learned how to hit notes easier and how to properly warm up; Lia is great at finding fun ways to keep them engaged while also still learning. The combination of piano and voice for my youngest has been really valuable. I highly recommend Lia for your lessons!

Online Songwriting Teacher

I have been writing songs since I was 11 years old. I was the songwriter for several independent rock bands, the most notable being an indie psychedelic group called "Tod The Fox". I also help artists write songs as lead producer at Drive35 Productions. I have scored several films, one of which has recently been nominated for "best original score" at The Attic Film Festival in Austin, TX.

About Jordan

13 years ago, I picked up a guitar and began my life-long pursuit of music. This pursuit has led me in a wide variety of directions. Today, I am a worship leader for Fellowship of The Parks, an on-staff music-producer and session musician at Drive35 Productions, and a passionate instructor. I h

Jordan is fantastic! We have been so pleased. Since starting with Jordan our son is loving piano again.

Jordan is a nice guy, my son enjoys the lessons. So far seems like a good experience.
Julio
After many years of contemplating learning an instrument and making excuses like a busy schedule, I finally made the commitment. I started the first few weeks with online videos and made a little progress. I found Jordan through this sight. I was hoping to find someone who would help guide me on a steady path to improvement and growth. Jordan has been a perfect fit for me. He's patient (I'm not). He is encouraging (I'm pretty hard on myself). I am slowly getting better and wanting to stick with it. I think it's because he's clear and methodical in his teaching and he keeps you enthused with music that you like. While I have a long way to go, I practice every day and look forward to my weekly lessons with Jordan. I'm learning the guitar for my self and over the past three month Jordan has helped me stay engaged and excited about playing the guitar. I highly recommend Jordan and will continue to learn from him.

Knowledgeable, personable and a lot of fun. Would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to start or improve there guitar practice.
Levi B.
We've completed 3 lessons with Christopher and I am planning on signing my other kid up for lessons with him. He is on it! He is super patient and helpful. We come from a rigid piano and cello background and my son needed to learn to loosen up for this instrument and he seems to be the perfect teacher to help with that. My son is currently learning ukelele. the first 2 lessons seemed to be great confidence boosters that did teach new skills, but weren't too hard.Now after the third we are getting into harder stuff where my son is really challenged. I love it!!! I highly recommend.

"Fawn is my favorite music teacher. There have been real problems with the attendance of other teachers but come rain or shine Fawn is there. In 4 years I have learned more about music - piano, songwriting and voice than through any other teacher. She has a professional, enthusiastic and kind manner and I wholeheartedly recommend her."

"Fawn is an amazing teacher. I've been taking songwriting classes from her and I learn something new every lesson. She's very sweet, talented, encouraging, and understanding. I was nervous to take lessons online at first, as I've never done it before, then was unsure who I should take from because I didn't want to get someone who was terrible. I got really lucky though, I highly recommend her. She's absolutely fantastic."

"In the course of a few lessons with Gfire, I (with coaching) wrote a song that I felt pretty good about. I've written a few songs before and had learned the basics, but I enjoyed learning her method (which, in a phrase, would have to be "keep going") and I plan to use it to see if it'll help with my productivity. Gfire was always very upbeat and positive without being phony, encouraging without being demanding, so the lessons were always enjoyable. I would recommend her."

"Ahmad is Awesome! Lessons are a must. Before I started lessons, I would find tabs online and it was fun but I was wasting my time. I wasn't progressing and I didn't have any concept of timing and other essential basics. As a result, I was playing the proper notes but I wasn't playing them correctly and I couldn't improvise at all.

Ahmad takes difficult concepts and breaks them down into small, easy to understand pieces. Harmony concepts that I thought I wouldn't be able to grasp, I understand fully and use every day. He has a ton of tips that make learning so much faster. For instance, you learn how to find any note on the neck quickly without having to memorize the whole neck, which is crucial skill. Another great thing is that he uses tablature in his lessons. So, you don't have to know how to read music to get started.

If you ever want to write your own music or play with other people, call Ahmad now. He will make sure you learn the right way. I'm writing music and playing/improvising solos, at a level I thought I would never be able to achieve. Every lesson opens new possibilities."

"Technology today is incredible. I'm in Norway, Fawn is in Los Angeles. Where else could I find a quality teacher with a couple of hit songs help me at my craft? If it weren't for the internet I would have never found such a talented songwriter to help me tighten my songs. I love, love, LOVE the time I spend with Fawn hashing out my songs to record with my band in the studio. She is so gifted, easy going, precise and fun. She really respects keeping the integrity and emotions of my songs and is good at keeping people open to changes that are necessary to make a mediocre song great."
