I recently began singing again after a year and was very unconfident in my voice and my ability to improve. Albino was the perfect instructor for someone like me because of his patience and positivity. He was able to point out issues with my singing technique or provide feedback in a very positive way, without seeming critical. Whenever I was confused about something, he would work with me non-stop until I understood. Albino inspires confidence in all his students, and I highly recommend him as a teacher!

Online Songwriting Teacher

I draw on a wide-variety of genres and styles to inform my approach to teaching songwriting. While my background is primarily jazz, I look to the best songwriters from the worlds of Pop, RnB, Rock and more to inform and address specific techniques and methodologies. I tailor my teaching to each individual student and their goals and learning styles. And I like to assign little bite-sized assignments, relating to a student's own material, to immediately apply our concepts straight-away. Overall my aim is always to keep FUN and raw, honest creative self-expression at the forefront of ALL I can do for a student!

"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 writing songs with Bob on and off since 1989, I think it was. He’s the best: inventive – lyrically and melodically; with a deep understanding of musical structure and a wealth of experience. Our songs have aired on several cable shows and songs of mine he produced and played on were used on NBC, ABC, FOX, public television, as well as on German TV, Sirius, and radio stations around the world. You’ll get what you paid for: Bob’s the real deal.

“First-rate compositions,” wrote Ken Tucker ("Entertainment Weekly" and radio’s "Fresh Air") of Williams’ songs. Both "Publishers Weekly" and "School Library Journal" highly recommend Williams’ two CDs for children. "One out of thousands!” wrote a reviewer for Europe’s "Radio Marabu" of Williams’s pop/folk-rock CD, “...true, honest music…a priceless treasure for a lifetime.”"

The Anatomy of a Hit Pop Song [Infographic]

When you're learning how to write a song, looking at how other songs are structured can be a great place to start. Like looking at a map before you go on a roadtrip, checking out the basic elements of songs you love gives you a sense of how they were written and what you need to do to write a song of your own. If analyzing all your favorite songs sounds like a daunting task (it is), you're in luck. The Billboard Experiment wanted to know if there was a formula that could determine which songs …
