Private Songwriting Teacher

As a composer myself it is my joy to help other students find their voices through composition. I've worked with many genres and through lessons I help students discover their own writing style. My guidance is both hands on and hands off so that the song written, in the end, is truly yours. I'll guide you through the basics and the steps but in the end it'll be up to you to truly create!

Chloe is one of the best teachers I have encountered relative to her knowledge, skills, understanding of how to train children and her desire to see her students excel. She is vested in her students. Thank you for the awesome job you do with my kids. I have seen remarkable progress in their singing since you started ( I can say that because I am also a classically trainer singer)

Chloe is amazing! I have taken music theory/ voice lessons from her for over a year now, and have learned so much! She helped me pass my choir class in school and advance in an after school choir. 100% recommend her skills! She definitely knows her stuff :)

Besides playing/teaching saxophone, my other passion is writing music. If I'm not playing, I'm writing. I have studied composition and song writing, and my band plays many originals that I have written!

About Sean

When I was 12 or 13 I heard John Coltrane's masterpiece album 'Giant Steps' for the first time. From then on I was absolutely magnetized to the saxophone and devoted my life to studying the great art form of jazz. I have come to believe that the only thing better than playing music is sharing music

Sean is a great teacher! He's extremely knowledgeable and can explain tough concepts very clearly. He's really made me feel like my goals are within reach. Highly, highly recommended (especially if you want to play jazz).

Private Songwriting Teacher

When I start lessons with someone I usually like to introduce songwriting early. I do this because I feel it helps to know that you are able to express yourself early on in your guitar experience. I write my own songs from a very intuitive place and feel that it is important to free up that creativity. I like to teach people how to find their voice on the instrument.

About Ayme

Music can be as simple or as intricate as you want to make it. I will to teach you how to make the most of whatever knowledge and skill you have and to have fun while you do it. My tastes are all across the board, rock and roll, country, metal, opera, I love it all. So, let me know what you are int

Josh and Niki B.
Josh has been teaching our son (14 years old) piano and voice for over a year. He is an exceptional teacher and musician. Our son is really into musical theater and pop music. Josh has done an amazing job getting him playing and singing the music he loves quickly and successfully. He incorporates vocal and piano technique, music theory, and style into the context of pieces of music our son is motivated to learn, practice, and perform. Josh is incredibly smart and personable. He relates well to our son and has built a strong, trusting teacher-student relationship with him. We have also hired Josh to perform at family events for us. He was incredibly talented and professional. We cannot recommend Josh highly enough. He is fantastic!
Jonathan
Josh has been teaching our two kids piano, mixture of classical and popular, for about four years now. At this point one of our kids is 13 and the other 11. He's a wonderful, inspiring, enthusiastic and all round excellent piano teacher. Our kids are very different, and the younger one, our daughter, is slower to catch on. Josh is incredibly patient, and keeps her engaged. In the case of our son, he mixes classical with popular, and picks up on songs my son enjoys, to keep the lessons interesting. Josh typically would come to our home to teach two back-to-back lessons. More recently he has gone remote/online. In either setting he's just spectacular. We recommend him highly . . . and have recommended him to friends all of whom feel similarly about him as we do. He's also a really nice guy, and a pleasure to have in the house. He's also helped us with entertainment at a family function. Get in touch with Josh, you won't be sorry.

Online Songwriting Teacher

A music lesson should first and foremost be filled to the brim with fun and that’s what I bring! Not to mention, nine years of public school teaching experience and over a decade of private music lesson tutoring.
I have a specific lesson structure and curriculum that I use to help our young musicians get hands on with their instrument and playing with confidence. Once we feel confident, that’s when we start learning the nitty gritty musical components that allow our musicality to flow, coupled with vigorous practice at home to build that dexterity, my student succeed!

About David

I'm an elementary school music teacher. I love making music in all settings, whether it's in a drum circle, a rock band, a choir, music is a beautiful language that I believe everyone speaks fluently in their own way. My hope is that my students are given a lasting impression when working with me,

"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."

"Indigo is a fabulous and diverse teacher! I've been taking lessons with her for about 9 months. Although my lessons are "officially" for songwriting, we divide our time among that, guitar technique, and music theory. I've experienced so much progress and fun in several areas, and I attribute that to Indigo's teaching and guidance. I even wrote and produced my first solo song! Don't miss the chance to work with a great musician and teacher!"

"When I first took lessons with Triana, I thought I was a pretty good song writer. Looking back I can see how much I have improved. I always felt like my songs could be better, but I didn't know how I could get them to the place I wanted. Triana has an uncanny ability to hear the best version of your song and guide you towards it. I never felt like she was writing for me, but helping me hear the places in my own song that needed work. I feel like my songs are so much stronger now and, more importantly, I can see the places in my own song that need work and can make them better on my own!"
