Why do some melodies stand the test of time and others don't? Why are some words better choices than others? How do people write good songs? It takes a lot of time, some guidance and mostly discipline. I will help you to stay on track and provide support based on personal industry experience.

A 30 or 60 minute lesson is a great add-on to a voice lesson and it grants the opportunity to learn how the two are connected. If done properly, the two can support one another, helping the singer and the writer share a both voices, the written and the physical voice.

About Jessica

Hi! My name is Jessica and I can't wait to help you find YOUR voice because YOUR voice is unlike anyone else's . No two people sound exactly the same; isn't that a beautiful thing? I truly believe it is, so much so that I've dedicated over two decades of my life to it. After double majoring at the

My goal in taking lessons was to get back to singing after a long hiatus of lessons and performing... to reclaim my love of singing and break through my insecurity. Jessica's warmth, humor and expertise helped me do just that. I learned new techniques and had a full on very emotional breath through right in her living room!

She made me feel safe, confident, and helped me learn about my unique voice as well as shared her expertise in proper breathing and gaining vocal control and increasing range.

In sum, Jessica is an incredible vocal coach and I'd definitely recommend her.
Sally
Jessica is an amazing teacher! She not only understands all the technicalities behind singing but she works to your strengths and helps you cultivate both your inner and outer voice! I felt very comfortable with her and even got emotional a few times as it was such a powerful experience to be able to be vulnerable and engage in something I love so much. Jessica is the perfect mix between professional and experiential where you'll learn skills but you will also have fun doing it. I highly recommend Jessica for your musical needs. I look forward to my future sessions!! It also helps she is incredibly talented! An all around win and positive experience :)!

Great first lesson!!
Grace W.
My daughter takes guitar from Maria and I didn’t realize how much she’s progressed until we went to a friend’s recital. 8 months with Maria and my child is leaps and bounds ahead of kids who’ve been taking for 2-3 years. It’s really motivating for her to see. Maria has standards which are non-negotiable but she’s patient and truly guides the kids to success. I’m so happy with our choice as her as a teacher.

Maria has been wonderful with our son. Very motivating and goal based. The recitals blow me away year after year. The progress these kids make with her plus the longevity of her students says a lot.

Online Songwriting Teacher

I am a professional songwriter with a passion for teaching the songwriting craft! My specialty is custom music, meaning that the majority of the songs that I am hired for professionally are tailored to something specific, meaning they tell me the style, and lyrical theme they are looking for, and I make it happen. I like to make my songwriting lessons just as customized, so that my students can learn what will be most valuable to them. We will analyze and utilize techniques that are being used in songs that speak to you, so that the original songs you write can measure up to the music that you love.

About Taylor

I started writing songs when I was 8 years old and never stopped! I attended the Academy of the Performing Arts Huntington Beach High School, and from there studied Commercial Music and Writing at Brigham Young University. I have written and produced 3 personal pop EPs, and have released several s

Are you just driven to express yourself with song?
Well, for years I have helped to get people's songs out of their heads and into the world. We help you with form, syntax, lyrics, melody, hooks, and on and on.

For years I have helped folks to protect their intellectual property. We will help you copyright your songs using ECO the Electronic Copyright Office of the Library of Congress. I will never make any attempt to ensnare your copyrights.

So let's do a song and see if we're a good fit! We can record a working recording of it the first day you bring it in!

An integrated approach:
Music almost always involves several skills. Below are some of the complementary skills that I can help you with.

In my Semper Method, we always address several of them at every session. For example, we record, sing and play all the time. To sing you should be able to pick out intervals at the piano, or better yet, accompany yourself and everyone needs some music theory. So it really is all ...

My son Liam has been Randy’s student for almost a year. Liam’s superpower is autism, and that means we work in “Liam time.” Randy is great at reading Liam and does an amazing job of helping us balance work on Liam’s music and his voice acting. Randy has taken us far, and we’re excited to see how much farther Liam can go in the next year with Randy guiding the way! I highly recommend Randy L, especially if your student faces extra challenges!

"I have been taking lessons with Jimmy for years now for music theory, acoustic guitar, singing, recording, and now songwriting. Its awesome to have all those options in one place. Jimmy has a lot of experience when it comes to writing songs and it shows in the way he teaches. He always shows excitement towards the new songs I bring to him, and encourages me to keep writing. He has taught me how easy it can be to create songs, while taking what he has taught me with music theory to push the song to the next level. The best part is when I decide I like a song, he has the ability to record it for me in his studio. This process of recording and listening to what you have created is invaluable. I always look forward to lessons with Jimmy and highly recommend him."

"I've been learning songwriting and music theory from David and it couldn't be any better. He's very professional and personable, and he makes sure to work with you, not above you. He shows a genuine enthusiasm for his students' musical interests and formulates instruction around them. David encourages questions, which creates a comfortable and effective teacher-student interaction. Between my weekly lessons, I find myself impatiently counting down the days until my next scheduled lesson. While the genre of songwriting that I've been working on with David's guidance has been contemporary Christian, I'm sure that he would be an effective teacher in any genre, whether the student were writing songs or playing them."

"Fawn is an investment in my future, money spent well

Fawn takes you on an unexpected fun, whirlwind of learning when you take lessons with her. Can’t read the notes? No problem, she’s got you. Vocal problems? Oh yeah, she fixes that too. Trouble in the studio? Voice off pitch? Need mic technique? Weak on piano? Sight singing? Can’t play the blues? Can’t play classical? Need to learn how to write a song? Can’t find a hook for your song? Don’t worry, Fawn to the rescue! Seriously, is there nothing this woman can’t do? I soak up her wisdom like a sponge. I’m currently working in the studio with her on my debut album and we are half-way finished. It is sounding ah-may-zing! I am learning so much from this studio wiz. Having her in my life the past 3 years has been the right choice and an investment in my future. Here’s to another successful year with Fawn on my team."

Songwriting Tips: How to Write Lyrics To Your First Song

Are  you learning to play guitar because you want to be able to write your own songs? Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares some tips to help you write lyrics to your first song... Just as writing a song on guitar can seem like work for only a select few, so can writing the words to one. Once again, this assumption and the truth are completely unrelated. You don't need to be Bob Dylan or Bernie Taupin to do it – you only need to have something to say. I first began writing lyrics as teenag …
