Writing music can be one of the hardest things to do, but it can also be the most rewarding. Writing music is my passion. I have developed a curriculum designed to break down the process of writing music through a theoretical, conceptual and creative approach. I believe creativity is something that can be taught. Like any type of music, it is a skill that when practiced the right way, can improve. I can teach composition of any genre of music from singer-songwriter music, to rock/pop to advanced modern jazz. Together we will work to help you write your own songs and unlock the creativity you have in you.

With years of teaching and gigging experience in a wide variety of musical styles, I can teach students whatever they are interested in learning. I believe the most musical improvement occurs when the student is having fun with the process of learning. My lessons are a fun and relaxed environment w

Thanks Moriah . I have been writing contemporary christian, gospel and kids songs for five years, I needed some help improving my lyric writing and song structure getting my songs from good songs to great songs in today's styles. I hate to say this because she has been so patient and so good I fear she might get over booked now. I think she deserves the compliment . I have worked with many others and so far I think she is the best. She has helped me take one of my song to the next level I am hopeful to get pitched to a ccm artist. I plan on staying with her. I think she really knows her stuff.

Moriah is an amazing vocal instructor! She is so kind and focused on making sure you progress, whatever level you're at. She has given me wonderful tips and really helped me improve my technique. She really knows her stuff!
Billy
Moriah is so great to work with and an excellent teacher/ vocal coach. My technique, tone, and control have improved a lot in a short amount of time. Also if you want to learn harmony she's the best you're gonna find. 5 stars bc they don't have 6 for an option.

I started writing songs at age 7. I recorded my first song at age 16. I use theory and chord progressions with my instrumental students to help develop their own style sometimes by only adding suggestions. I teach a rock camp in the summertime where kids age 7-15 come out and learn to write original music and perform it on stage in only a week.

Online Songwriting Teacher

I've been writing songs since I was 16 years old and verse and poetry since I was 13. There is no such thing as being "too young" to start writing and these skills have been closely linked to the mastery of other skills as well including composition, comprehension and reading. In addition, developing the creative portions of our brains at an early age can help to open up creative doors in other areas for us as we continue throughout school.
Finding chord combinations that work well together as well as utilizing theoretical precepts like key signatures and relative minors, can also help us to wake up our muses and compose songs which inspire ourselves as well as others.

About Mark

Mark L. I was born in California but raised in the sleepy town of Beaverton, Oregon, enmeshed in massive groves of pine and poplar trees and long, cool rainy days. I entered into the world of creativity and music when I was just thirteen by composing poetry and song lyrics, and began dabbling wit

"Joe was able to work with my daughter to approach some very complex material (using Abelton live to live loop and edit her songs) at a pace and with a vocabulary and tone that completely defused an otherwise intimidating situation. His calm, steady manner spiced with just the right touch of dry wit and his keen ear for a mean beat kept the lessons fun and very productive. Joey's not just a fantastic and unique musician and teacher, however, he's a great person and a fantastic influence to have in your life."
