About Carolyn

Coming from a large extended family in Hawaii, I was surrounded by luau music, kachi-kachi dancing, Japanese bon dances, handsome local guys singing and playing their guitars and my aunties strumming their ukes and singing old songs. I reveled in walking alone in Nature or playing piano and singing

Carolyn is phenomenal! I have 3 kids, one of them special needs, and she was able to take the info I provided about each of them, create a specialized experience for each of them, and meet them where they were at. All this after their FIRST LESSON. I was way impressed and can't wait to see how they develop under her direction!

Songwriting can seem mysterious to someone who has never tried it, but really it's as easy as finding some chords that fit your mood and singing what you're feeling. We can talk about songwriting basics, common chords in popular songs, and ubiquitous song forms. You'll be writing for Nashville in no time!

About Evan

I have been playing music professionally for 10+ years but I also have a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from Temple University. My background in a psychology discipline allows me to have a better understanding of the mechanisms of learning, specifically related to music. Learning takes place

Online Songwriting Teacher

I am an award-winning song writer with professional and personal experience in the local music scene as well as the national and commercial areas. I've studied piano, guitar, music theory, songwriting writing. I even dabbled in a professional music career, writing and performing across New York City, the SF Bay Area, and Nashville. While still quite young myself, I began writing at a very young age. I took both instrument and songwriting lessons for many years and have won awards in both local and international songwriting competitions.

I love working with teens and young adults but have also worked with much more experienced musicians. I have experience writing with up and coming local artists and Nashville musical veterans. I can teach and guide your songs to be stronger with:
- structure and flow
- melodies that fit the mood of the song
- "catchiness"
- rhymes
- creative word choice
- writing for radio/tv/film
- writing for performance
- harmonies and instrument ...

When I worked with Triana, she was very helpful in helping me revise and reconstruct one of my original songs. She was a very constructive co-writer and instructor, as she helped make sure that each section of my song had a purpose and was impactful. Overall, Triana has a lot to offer to up and coming songwriters who may want an experienced musician or writer’s valuable input.

Triana was great with my two daughters that desperately wanted to learn how to write their own songs. She was patient and listened to them. They've both gained a lot more confidence and love bringing their songs to her each week!
Amelia
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!

I've been working with Trevor for just over a year. His teaching goes beyond just dry technique and theory to answer the question "why am I doing this?" When you work with Trevor, there is purpose behind everything you do. He starts with your big picture goals and breaks them down into actionable steps that you can take feeling like it's going somewhere. This makes for way more efficient and exciting practice sessions. If you don't know exactly where you want to go with your playing, Trevor will help you find that as well.
Nathan S.
Trevor is an amazing teacher! He works with you to make a plan to learn whatever interests you. I can bring in any kind of music or style of playing and he will help me learn all of the elements. He is happy to go as far into theory as you want or stay more high level. Also has been very helpful in transitioning from learning tunes to writing and recording my own songs. Highly recommend.

"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 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."

"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."

"Jan is wonderful to work with!

I worked with Jan thru skype while living in Australia on my songwriting and singing, she is a joy to work with really caring and helped me challenge myself to become a better songwriter. There were even days I woke up at 4am Australian time just to work with her! The whole experience was great! I then had the pleasure to work with her in person to record some of the songs we had been working on as I traveled to LA for a few weeks. Her techniques really helped me bring out certain emotions and I can't express how much I enjoy working with Jan."

10 Proven Steps For Writing Lyrics That Stick

The late Amy Winehouse tribute album Lioness: Hidden Treasures has been making waves on the UK music charts, securing the #1 spot just days after its release.  Although the posthumous album has had its share of drama and questionable reviews, the collection - with its mix of covers and raw, unfinished tunes polished up by the producers - seems fitting in depicting Amy as the troubled, tattered star that she was. As she sings at the start of "Best Friends, Right?": "I can't wait to get away f …
