Private Songwriting Teacher

Nothing is quite as rewarding as writing your own material, however, it's easy to feel stuck with an idea if you don't know how to fully develop it. I will help you take that one lick/chord change/vocal melody you've been working on and turn it into a fully fleshed out song. We'll take the time to learn the individual roles and functions of certain song sections, and pretty soon you'll be writing your best material with much more focus and confidence!

Lucciana was excellent with my son. My son is 9yrs old and Lucciana knew exactly how to talk to him and how to teach him. She is perceptive and creative, excellent with children!!!

Making music is such an incredible creative outlet and songwriting allows you to bring your own story and individuality to the music that you make. In lessons with me, I will give you the building blocks to expand on your songwriting and create interesting and complex songs. We will work with various accompaniment styles in your instrument of choice to move beyond simple chords and structures. We will use music theory to understand how to create songs and melodies that work harmoniously and to build upon the base of a loose song structure, and we will learn about lyrical flow and how to create beautiful lyrics that roll off the tongue rhythmically. Once we have built a song from the base up, or if you already have a finished song, then we can work together to analyze it and improve on it through these techniques and create a beautiful finished piece! I also have experience with recording and producing music, so I can teach you to bring your song to fruition in a polished and ...

Ed's vast knowledge, experience and easy demeanor is helping me finally gain a better knowledge of the fretboard and expand beyond "blues box 1" and connect the patterns. I think I see a light bulb.
Larry
Ed has a pleasant easy going personality. I've had a couple of teachers who were great players, but lousy teachers. I quit my last teacher because he was completely unprepared and what we did had nothing to do with what we did the previous lesson that I had spent so much time practicing. I got the feeling he thought he was so good he could just wing it. Wrong. I've only had one lesson with Ed, but he seems well prepared and he has his program structured so the student can learn in a progressive manor.

About Lisa

My student said it best, "I've had the privilege of having Lisa as my voice instructor. In a matter of a few lessons, she began to help me smooth out my vocal breaks and extend my range. Lisa provides great exercises and technique that strengthen and improve your singing. She is someone you can tru

It was wonderful for lisa to have the patience to help me believe that I could improve my vocals.. we did some ear training to help me get more in tune with the music!
Lisa has lots of enthusiasm and is excited with singing and helping others improving their singing abilities.
We did some group classes too, which were fun and those really engaging and motivating for the whole group.
Sergio
Lisa worked with my 10- and 6-year-old boys. They absolutely loved the lessons. We could hear them playing and laughing the whole time. She's really talented at teaching children.

I also took a lesson with her myself and it was everything I hoped for and more. I like technical details when learning and Lisa adapted the lesson to that preference very nicely.

Bottom line: Lisa is an amazing instructor and you or your children will learn a lot from her.
Yustina
Several lessons with Lisa helped me to feel comfortable singing in my upper register. I was a very low alto, now, in my good days, I can belt Adele's notes (I didn't say I sound like Adele, though)

I have been a songwriter my whole life, Ive taught many successful artist how to improv there songwriting skills and to understand this beautiful art form of storytelling chord and melody combining in a personal expression of the individual telling the the story.

I’ve never taken a lesson with Jonas, but in nearly three decades of covering local goings-on as Music Editor at the Austin Chronicle, I can certainly attest that this man is a musical GENIUS. And as I type that word, I’m trying to think of another local musician I would so readily apply said assignation to. His accumen on six strings is preternatural. In playing with a broad cross section of bands and individuals, Jonas asserts a truly uncanny ability to coax any sound out of his instrument at any give moment. When he does, it’ll be the ONLY sound that should’ve have come forth at that juncture. That’s a rare feat in ANY musician. Jonas’ confidence as a musician/guitarist/producer is only equal to his empathy for others and both remain palpable as his greatest gifts outside of shit-hot natural ability. If I played guitar, I’d absolutely lose my mind at the opportunuty to be mentored by Jonas. You will find NO ONE BETTER. Amen, y’all.

"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."

He has produced me numerous times on songs that I've written, but needed them to come to life. He works FAST and SIMPLE. I can't say enough about his professionalism, musicianship, follow through and kindness.

Songwriting 101: Using the "Long-Line" Concept

One of the most wonderful and rewarding things about the art of songwriting is that there are many different ways to approach making your own music. Arlington,TX music teacher Ric F. previously shared with us his tips on using rhythm as a guide to writing. Today, Ric would like to add another aspect to your understanding of writing songs, something he calls the "long-line" concept. Unlike visual art where you can see it all at once, music takes “time” to reveal itself. Today I would like …
