Jeanne is a wonderful person and knows children very well. My sons are an energetic handful and she patiently guides them through the work. For distracted 9 years olds, they steadily make progress.

Online Songwriting Teacher

I am a professional recording artist/singer-songwriter. I have received honors such as 2016 GRAMMY Amplifier Finalist and 2014 International Songwriting Competition Semifinalist.

In our first lesson, we will begin with where you are in your songwriting and what instruction you are looking for, so that I know how to best help and equip you. Throughout, we will do exercises to work on song structure, harmony, melody, rhythm and lyric writing, all to hone, shape and sharpen in on your individual voice.

As we progress, we can also get into music production and recording demos of your songs!

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!
Ava C.
So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!

"Lorin helped me hone my songwriting skills immensely, by not only teaching but collaborating with me when necessary. It was refreshing to find someone who put his teachings into practical learning, where I could see the outcomes become apparent. He’s a nice dude, and is experienced equally across his fields. He guided me to making intelligent choices for equipment purchases, both instruments and pro audio gear. We first met while he was living in New York, and boy has he traveled since. I think living in so many different states, and being that well journeyed has given him good cultural depth to his work. Check out some of his own collabs with singers and musicians from all over the world...that really says it all."
Took Songwriting lessons from Lorin D.
"Crystal is a fantastic teacher. She helped me with my songwriting and coached me on my singing. She is very kind and supportive. She has the easiest demeanor and puts you in a really comfortable, creative space when she's working with you.

I cannot say enough good things about Crystal. She's an excellent teacher and an excellent person."
Took Songwriting lessons from Crystal Rose S.
"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!"

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 …
