These lessons will give you the basic song writing tools necessary to create a beautiful, catchy tune that will truly speak to your individuality as a musician.

About Lance

Ever been told that you’re "a little pitchy," or that you “just need to give it more support?” Tips like these often leave people frustrated because they don’t actually give anyone a plan for improvement. In my lessons we will focus on real, specific issues, and make sure you have a great plan for

What I appreciate the most about coach Lance is his ability to explain the science behind our voices and how we can control or manipulate our airway to hit certain notes/pitch. Although I am just a beginner, I am super excited to see how far I can go with Lance as my coach!

Another forte of mine, and the subject in which I have a degree. Composition is an incredible art form; easy to learn but difficult to master, logical and emotional, it is the thinking person's approach to music. I highly recommend pursuing it to anyone who would learn more about themselves and being a creative artist.
