Nobody can write a hit song on their first try. There is a saying: It takes ten years of practice to become an overnight success. Well, with my assistance and expertise, you could shave a few years off this timeframe. It takes many years of trial and error to be able to find your voice and create well-crafted and mature music, but I can definitely guide you. I have been a songwriter for well over 15 years and I guarantee my knowledge and experience would be extremely valuable for a new or aspiring songwriter. If anyone would like to hear some of my original work, just message me.

Songs are the most common musical form in our culture. They are all around us, on the radio, the internet, at sports games, at the mall...a lot of thought, work, and creativity goes into those songs. Together, we'll learn how to come up with different song forms, write lyrics, tell stories, how to invent melodies, and what chords to put those melodies to.

I wanted to learn some Black Sabbath songs for my dad’s birthday and Peter was extremely helpful instructing me to do so. He was extremely patient with me and my lack of rhythm.
Bernardo
Super positive experience. I’m not the most dexterous person in the world, and peter is super patient and clear in his instruction. 10/10
Samantha
Peter is hands down the best teacher ever! I had such a hard time learning the basics of acoustic, but he taught me so many tricks and made the learning process smooth. I feel like a pro now! Will be continuing learning from him!

I can help you if you are struggling with writer's block, with accompanying your melody on piano or guitar, music theory, using poetic language, and coming up with catchy melodies.

I am confident I can help you with this, since I wrote and released 12 songs in 12 weeks! Youtube search "Krysti Subieta Angelgrams" and listen to some of the songs I wrote during that project.

About Krysti

Music is the love of my life, and teaching music is my absolute fulfillment. My 20 years of music experience will give you a mind-blowing understanding of music, whether you like modern or classic styles. We can explore singing and songwriting in styles of Pop, Rock, Folk, Latin, Musical Theate

Jon
Krysti has been a great instructor for me, an older, inexperienced student. She and I share a technical background. I find her skill and willingness to 'debug' my problems week after week to be helpful, easy to understand, and on target.

I'm still at the newb stage with clarinet, an amazingly tricky instrument. But it's my favorite sound, and I'm stickin' with it as long as Krystina can stand me.
Daniel
Krysti is a fantastic, motivating vocal coach. She inspires and makes you feel comfortable at the same time. Very technically minded and understands the mechanics of shaping the mouth and throat to enlarge your voice. I had a vocational interruption but will return soon to continue.
Tom
I have been taking singing lessons from Krysti for 6 weeks. In that time I feel Krysti has taken my raw voice and turned it into a singing voice. She is thorough, flexible, easy to work with and the lessons go by so fast! I highly recommend her as a voice teacher.

In Songwriting lessons, I help my students explore their own voice in music while developing their own authentic and unique style. Songwriting encourages expressing your thoughts, emotions and stories. I can assist with harmonic techniques, chord progressions, lyrical structure and melody writing, as well as other tools in order to streamline and accelerate the writing process.

Alex
Mariel has completely changed my singing for the better. I had previously had a singing teacher who was uninterested, uninspiring, and unmotivational. With Mariel - I always look forward to our lessons! She has developed my tone, allowed me to take control of my breathing, completely boost my confidence, and has made me fall in love with singing again! She has also encouraged me with my songwriting, helping me to find a sound that is natural to me. I have also developed a greater understanding of music theory which has helped me with reading sheet music as well as writing music.
