Private Songwriting Teacher

My approach to songwriting is through a process called Kaizen. Kaizen is a philosophy of constant improvement, one step at a time.

I believe that to write their best songs one must live their best life.

My lessons are very catered to the student's needs. I can teach the theory and techniques of song structure, lyric, melody, harmony, rhythm, groove, sound selection, music production, vocal intonation, audio recording, and music production. I can also speak conceptually to help deepen concept, improve cohesiveness, or simply advise on inspiration and creativity.

I specialize in Electronic (EDM), Pop, Indie, and Hip-Hop.

About Daniel

My first session with Dan was great! He asked a lot of questions to determine my level of experience/goals; then we dived right into the lesson. He’s also provided homework assigments that I’ve been able to work on straight away.

Dan is a really insightful instructor. He really knows Ableton in-and-out with his eyes closed. He also has a good ear and is able to help you get the sound that you want. He gives really good feedback on projects that you might be working on. He is really well-versed in all aspects of music production - not only in sound design and mixing but also in songwriting and also can talk about difficult topics like inspiration and creativity in a unique way. If you're serious about music production, I would certainly recommend taking lessons with Dan.

I've co-written songs with Chris Eaton (Janet Jackson, Keith Urban, Amy Grant) and Jay Stolar. I can help you make the track and write the lyric.

About Christiaan

Christiaan is a multi-talented performer in theater, opera, and pop music. He played Gaston in the Broadway tour of Beauty and the Beast. Something of a bad boy, he was kicked out of Opera School for singing jazz, yet he went on to earn three music degrees, and work with opera legend Marilyn Horne

I just had my first lesson with Christiaan. He was amazing. Gentle, very positive, and really good at observing and figuring out my strengths and weaknesses. He's also inspired me to learn with his love of music and thoughtful approach.

I've had a great experience taking lessons with Christiaan! I've had about 10 lessons total now. As someone who doesn't have a background singing, I was definitely a bit nervous going into it, but that didn't last long -- Christiaan's friendly and extremely talented. I especially appreciate that he provides context about posture, history, anatomy, etc. and that he took time early on to learn about my goals. Last but not least, I'm happy with my results so far!

"All you know as a writer, as an artist, or as someone who deals and manipulates symbols is whether it has an interior integrity." - Leonard Cohen

Great Songwriting is about accessing inner truth and through the personal, tapping into the universal.

In a nurturing and supportive atmosphere we will:
- Share completed songs and songs in progress and receive feedback
- Experiment with songwriting exercises to work on honing specificity, creating powerful visuals, and storytelling by showing, not telling
- Examine Song forms and how we can use them
- Leave with exercises to jump start new songs

About Melaena

I love working with children and being part of their early musical discovery. I'm devoted to the importance of learning through play and I strive to cultivate a nurturing and fun space where kids feel free to express themselves, make mistakes and grow. Using music books and hand-picking popula

Melaena was an incredible teacher for my daughter's introduction to, and learning of guitar. She brought excitement, inspiration, magic and knowledge to each lesson and my daughter learned easily and with so much joy! I couldn't recommend a better instructor - Meleana is a fun, skilled and natural music teacher.

Thank you so much for everything Melaena!

Online Songwriting Teacher

Amidst all the chaos going on in this world, I write songs to remind myself of what’s important, to appreciate the little things I tend to overlook. Songwriting has become a vehicle for my innermost expressions, crafting my story through a strum of my guitar and a line I can’t stop singing from my tiny notebook. Let me help you do the same, let the music inside of you exemplify your experiences and speak your stories.

Online Songwriting Teacher

Musicntheory is a universal language. With it, I’ve been able to write music for orchestras and instruments I’ve never played. Songwriting is far more simple than one might think. Those mainstream songs on the radio? Primarily, they take incredibly basic music theory knowledge. Want to write catchy, ways to please music? I got you. Want to write incredibly intricate yet impressively satisfying to the ear-music? I got you there, too.

About Brandon

I started learning piano by the age of 4. Started composition by the age of 5. At the age of 12, I started guitar and never turned back. Music was always the ULTIMATE escape. To me there's nothing that compares to the feeling I get after completing a song, or the rush of a good performance. I decid

Brandon is a great teacher and I definitely recommend! He's tailored the lessons right away to my music interests and skill level while still taking time to focus on the techniques I need to learn for bass. I've had a few lessons online and have already learned way more in these few weeks than I would ever have learned on my own. The online format works great for my schedule.

Brandon is a great teacher. I had my first lesson with him yesterday and he can play and takes the time to show you exactly what you are doing. I was skeptical of an online lesson with a teacher but it was a blast and in my first lesson I learned a lot of valuable things that I can put in my toolbox. I look forward to learning and to keep taking lessons. Oh and practicing! Highly recommend Brandon.

My first lesson with Brandon was a really instructional and inspiring interaction. Brandon listened to my goals and inspired me to become disciplined in practicing every day. His future classes and goals for me where explained after the first class. Both he and I have an understanding of where I want to be in the future and I know he will do everything he can to help me achieve my goals. Thanks Brandon!

Kenneth has demonstrated to me the step by step lyric writing process. I have been able to make lyrics I wrote come alive once music was added to my song. I highly recommend Kenneth to anyone needing guidance with learning more about songwriting techniques."

"Ahmad is Awesome! Lessons are a must. Before I started lessons, I would find tabs online and it was fun but I was wasting my time. I wasn't progressing and I didn't have any concept of timing and other essential basics. As a result, I was playing the proper notes but I wasn't playing them correctly and I couldn't improvise at all.

Ahmad takes difficult concepts and breaks them down into small, easy to understand pieces. Harmony concepts that I thought I wouldn't be able to grasp, I understand fully and use every day. He has a ton of tips that make learning so much faster. For instance, you learn how to find any note on the neck quickly without having to memorize the whole neck, which is crucial skill. Another great thing is that he uses tablature in his lessons. So, you don't have to know how to read music to get started.

If you ever want to write your own music or play with other people, call Ahmad now. He will make sure you learn the right way. I'm writing music and playing/improvising solos, at a level I thought I would never be able to achieve. Every lesson opens new possibilities."

Fawn’s way of teaching is quite original, passionate and always to the point. She can make the most insecure person get out of their own way and become more secure. Working with her, I get a glimpse of genius in action. She really is a musical genius and I have been learning an incredible amount from her. My songs keep getting better under her training and guidance and I finally got a placement in a sitcom from her re-write. I look forward to watching my own abilities continue to grow and become stronger."
