Students interested in learning songwriting can explore many different styles and approaches. I have been writing songs for more than 8 years and have recorded 6 full length albums of original material in a variety of genres including rock, blues, country, reggae, bluegrass, Americana, and folk. My students can expect thorough instruction and study based on classic and modern songwriting techniques in the genres of interest. We will study "music first" songwriting, "words first" songwriting, and improvisational techniques, as well as "cut and paste multi-tracking". Poetry, prose, nonsensical, call and response, storytelling, and traditional are all avenues of exploration.

This was my first lesson with Richard, he was awesome. Richard is very knowledgeable, good listener and explained in detail what we were covering for the lesson this evening. Richard is very patient and explained he enjoys working with beginners, highly recommend Richard if you’re looking to learn to play the guitar. Looking forward to learning more from Richard.

Great experience!

Voice lessons are tough. This isn't like a golf swing where someone can show you physically what to do or reach out and position your elbows where they need to be.

This all has to be articulated by a teacher, and is has to be articulated to someone (YOU) who doesn't even know what parts you're trying to move around.

It takes a great teacher. Eulis is a GREAT teacher. He gave me physical descriptions, character descriptions, accent descriptions, … everything I needed to position everything where it needed to be, even when I didn't always know where it was.

A lot of progress and a lot of fun. Thank you, Eulis.

Eulis was great and provided plenty of insight. Nice guy and he showed me interesting techniques

I am a songwriting major at Berklee who has been writing music for practically as long as I could write. I focus mainly on pop and musical theater, but I will cater to my students' interests and goals. My specialties are lyric and melody writing, but I also frequently write harmonies and chord progressions. One of my originals was recently selected to be performed in the Berklee Gender Equality Showcase and I also co-write very frequently. I most often write with piano for my harmony, but sometimes write with guitar and ukulele as well.

"So, if you need a music coach, Fawn is the one! She teaches just about all things music! She is honestly the best. Fawn is always friendly and works with you on all possible songwriting, melodic and lyrical issues. She is also great with working with your schedule.
Fawn is easy to talk to and she brings up thought provoking topics I would have never thought to write about. We work in Google Docs so I can see as she makes adjustments and changes. I am learning more than I thought imaginable and my
songwriting is getting stronger and tighter. Thanks Fawn!"

He has taught my daughter as well. We study songwriting together.
