Private Songwriting Teacher

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.

Richard was amazing! Always a joy to have him in the house. He was always on time and well prepared for our daughter's lessons. He also kept the lessons entertaining for her. Our daughter learned a lot and definitely improved quite a bit during the time he worked with her. We would highly recommend Richard to any parent with a child interested in learning and playing guitar.

Richie is an incredible instructor. Every lesson I have with him is fun, and he pushes me to try new skills in order to develop my abilities. Always prepared with a valuable lesson, but also ready to work through the songs I bring. Overall awesome experience!

Online Songwriting Teacher

I have been teaching songwriting for over four years. These lessons are wholly rewarding as I love to conduct it as a "jam session" of sorts, helping my students frame their ideas into versus-chorus form, as well as helping them with basic music theory and sheet music transferring digitally with Sibelius 7 or in paper form.

"Fawn is an incredible songwriter and coach! She has turned my mediocre songs into hits and I have placed several on television shows since she helped me make them better. Every lesson I learn something new and feel empowered and like I'm finally headed in the right direction. You will learn so much about yourself when you take lessons with her. She is a true blessing."

"I was looking for a teacher who could help me hone in on my songwriting skills, and was so excited when I found Brittany! Not only was she able to help me improve my songwriting, but she helped with my singing in my lessons too! She is definitely the perfect teacher if you are looking to work on both. She also taught me how to use the Nashville Numbers System to chart my songs and be able to communicate well with my band. I take lessons in Brittany's home, which is in a great location and is really nice. I feel very safe there (her complex is gated) and always love going to see her!"

"When I first took lessons with Triana, I thought I was a pretty good song writer. Looking back I can see how much I have improved. I always felt like my songs could be better, but I didn't know how I could get them to the place I wanted. Triana has an uncanny ability to hear the best version of your song and guide you towards it. I never felt like she was writing for me, but helping me hear the places in my own song that needed work. I feel like my songs are so much stronger now and, more importantly, I can see the places in my own song that need work and can make them better on my own!"
