I studied Songwriting at Berklee College of Music. I worked with Pat Pattison at Berklee, learning his techniques and studying his practices, such as object writing. In this class, we will explore the importance of word choice, the understanding of the story we want to tell, and developing the perfect music accompaniment.

About Olivia

I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat. Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied

A very good first lesson. We went over breathing exercises and scales. Also had time for Amy to critique my speaking style through a portion of a speech I will be giving in a month. Time well-spent.

She briefly went over the next lesson plan and gave me a little homework to do as well.

I got a lot out of this lesson and I can see how this will help me accomplish my goal of being a better public speaker and having a more controlled and stronger voice.

Looking forward to future lessons.

Amy is absolutely incredible. She showed keen interest in my concerns and challenges. She listened and knew exactly what I needed to do to get to where I want to be. She makes it easy for me to understand and she is truly a great coach. I can’t wait to see her again.

I started playing guitar originally in 1991. I picked up bass and ukulele (and then over the ensuing years, gradually a plethora of other instruments, such as voice, drums, piano, and harp). I started teaching in 2001 throughout the Chicagoland area. First in music stores, then schools, then people

Ian has been wonderful with my bonus son. He's learning the ukelele quickly, and I'm so excited to see the world of music beginning to open up for him!

First lesson was great. It took a little time setting up and getting to know each other. For a first lesson, I came away with some very useful information on a song I was having a problem with. I like the direction it is going. Looking forward to the next lesson.

Online Songwriting Teacher

I am a composer and have taught professionally for over 20 years. I taught at Berklee College of Music, New England Conservatory, Musicians Institute, the Cornel School of Music and the California College of Music.

I worked in New York, Boston and later in Los Angeles with many songwriters, producers and vocalists.
With my songwriting students, I work on their melodic development, chord progressions, song forms and how to create music drawing from the best contemporary resources. As a pianist, composer and producer, I am able to assist in giving shape to the songs and ideas of songwriters.

My classes are always fun, stress free but with a strong curriculum, organized and dynamic.
Onsite, I teach music at my studio in Los Angeles. My studio is located in the historical Village Green.
Online, I teach music via Skype or Zoom using different cameras to enhance the music lesson experience.

I would love to work with you!
Please send me a message to talk about your musical ...

Writing songs is not as difficult as it may seem. I have guided many students through the process. It is truly a fun and creative time for both student and teacher.
Some familiarity with harmonic and rhythmic concepts, as well as some analytic terminology is necessary to get the ideas out of your head and into the air. I like to start by analyzing the songs of others and discussing them. Then we get down to the brass tacks and talk about the song as if it were no different than the blueprint of a building.

David , arrived on time at my home for my first piano lesson in 25 years.
He was friendly and knowledgeable and soon found some things for me to work on, but he was patient with this 53
Year old guy.
I feel confident that my piano skills will improve greatly with David’s tuition.
I eagerly look forward to my next lesson.
Tam T.
David is the best and the sweetest piano teacher we have ever have. He is so patient, kind, caring and creative in his teaching method.

My 5 year old has a little autism symptom so she's very easy to get distracted. Yet we have great fun time in every class with him. His class worth 20 min driving there and 20 min driving back, using toll road!
Lori
David has been so amazing with out 9 year old daughter. We have gone to him for over 2 years and she has come so far with her skills! He has so much patience. He's so kind and wonderful with kids. We were recommended by a friend and now we recommend him! He's high in demand for sure! We are sad we can't use him anymore due to scheduling issues. His prices are better than others too!

"I was really nervous about my performance of an original pop-song for my concert coming up in school. Things weren't working out with my previous teacher and that's when I found Taylor! She guided me through pairing the music with my lyrics, but in a way that really made me feel confident in what I was making! Taylor is super fun and easy to work with and when we weren't writing... we were cracking dad jokes! XD I performed the song at my school concert and I couldn't have been happier with the result! I definitely recommend Taylor and want to work with her soon again :3"

"Technology today is incredible. I'm in Norway, Fawn is in Los Angeles. Where else could I find a quality teacher with a couple of hit songs help me at my craft? If it weren't for the internet I would have never found such a talented songwriter to help me tighten my songs. I love, love, LOVE the time I spend with Fawn hashing out my songs to record with my band in the studio. She is so gifted, easy going, precise and fun. She really respects keeping the integrity and emotions of my songs and is good at keeping people open to changes that are necessary to make a mediocre song great."
