Sean is great
NIMMI S.
Sean was a great teacher. I asked him if he knew how to teach Bollywood style Violin and even though he didn't he took the time to study it and learn just to teach me. I really appreciate that he was so open to trying so hard for his students. I think Sean is great!
Marc T.
Great first lesson. High hopes for follow lessons.

I self-taught myself guitar over 35 years ago; mostly forgotten. Sean began with establishing goals that would meet my goals. The feedback to me during the lessons was focused and delivered in a friendly manner. Progression was enhanced due to his manner and his approach to teaching. While this was the first lesson, I am looking forward to future lessons.

**Songwriting for all ages and abilities and currently have young children writing their first songs as a way to develop their writing and musicianship skills, to young adults releasing their first recordings of well crafted material. I use improvisation as a bsic tool to assist singers and pianists alike. I also work with guitarists to work on their craft and to develop as artists.

Online Songwriting Teacher

I teach songwriting for students who want to have the best chance to make money from their songwriting. There are structures of songs that make money, and if the song is well composed in one of those structures, and pitched correctly, the song can make money for the life of the writer, plus 70 additional years after the writer passes on. The heirs of the writer receive royalties for 70 years.

A fun and engaging instructor. He obviously enjoys his job. The lesson was practical and easy to apply to a new song right away. Simple and clear lesson plans for practice between sessions.

Steven is an excellent instructor. After the first lesson, my vocal chords were tired but felt like I actually did something! He is extremely well-prepared, explains what he is trying to do, demonstrates the exercises and then offers feedback on your efforts. Top notch instructor!

Online Songwriting Teacher

I am extremely passionate about writing songs, and proud to be a Billboard international hit songwriter! Over the years, through working with some of the best writers in LA and in the business, I have developed key techniques and processes I love passing on! We will cover: How to hear a topline (melody), how to accompany your melody with chord progressions, how to say what you mean and strengthen your lyrics, originality, how to write what the industry is looking for, and so much more! The best part of this is that it's often a collaboration between myself and the client that helps pull the best possible song out of you!!

Dr. Desmond was a really great instructor! He was very kind and patient with me, he was able to teach me at ability level. He encouraged me to believe in myself and to practice in order to become a better player. He made me feel comfortable and and gave be positive reinforcements when I was doing well as well as positive constructive criticism when I was slacking. I look forward to continuing my courses with Dr. Desmond, I would recommend him to any one interested in learning how to play any instrument.

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 …
