Andy was such a great teacher. My 7 year old son looked forward to his lessons with Andy every week. We were very bummed we had to stop lessons because of moving out of state. Andy has such a great way of teaching and has such patience with kids.

As an award-winning singer/songwriter myself, I am here to help you take your own thoughts and emotions and turn them into works of art. In our lessons, we will focus on learning the different types of song structure, accessing your creative brain, and using both words and melody to fully express the emotion or story you're wanting to convey. I am so excited to start this wonderful journey with you!

Ellysa is extremely knowledgeable and practical - her lesson with me was amazing. As a first lesson, we went through my existing equipment and goals for writing/producing my own work, and she gave me an online review of what we discussed next steps were for me. I’m so thankful for her clear and focused guidance!

Online Songwriting Teacher

I teach you to study songwriting through really studying music, not through a book, as if you were learning to speak your native language all over again. Within the first four lessons you will have the ability to play and construct all seven modes in all twelve keys, including major and minor scales.

Since I believe it is counter-productive to separate song-writing, theory and ear training, we then take time to internalize all of the modes through the study of melody composition and improvisation.

After you learn to intellectualize and identify the modes, we move onto studying arpeggios and chords that are directly built from each mode. During this phase, we will also begin to study chord progressions and introductory voice-leading.

After learning to construct the chords from each mode, we study a concept called "voice-leading" which is really just the theoretical way of saying "there's many ways to make a chord with the same 3 or 4 notes sound different." Understanding ...

Online Songwriting Teacher

Songwriting is an art as well as a craft. In my lessons, I cover basic song structures in a variety of styles including blues, pop, rock, country, and jazz, lyrical content, melodic phrasing, and telling a story. Guitar is my preferred instrument for these lessons, so a background in basic guitar fundamentals is recommended, although some introductory guitar can be included with these lessons.

About Jordan

I received my education at the University of Wisconsin, majoring in Jazz Guitar. I've studied with some of the best guitarists in the Midwest, and have performed live and in recording studios all across the country in a variety of styles (Rock, Metal, Bluegrass, Jazz, Classical, Country).

Jordan was very helpful right from the start. He listened to me on where I am at and where I want to be. He showed me a few things that we will work towards and then helped me understand my instrument much better. Gave me some fun new things to practice before the next lesson. If you're looking for a lesson that is interactive and fun I recommend Jordan and the online thing is supper easy and handy. I don't think it could have gone any better. The lesson was 45 minutes and it felt like 10.

Jordan is a fantastic teacher! He expertly and patiently guided my young son from essentially 0 to reading notes and playing them on the guitar in about half an hour. He is clearly an experienced musician who loves to teach. We are looking forward to the next lesson.

"When I worked with Triana, she was very helpful in helping me revise and reconstruct one of my original songs. She was a very constructive co-writer and instructor, as she helped make sure that each section of my song had a purpose and was impactful. Overall, Triana has a lot to offer to up and coming songwriters who may want an experienced musician or writer’s valuable input.

"Hannah's awesome! I contacted her mainly for songwriting feedback but also for guidance while applying and auditioning for BYU's commercial music program. She always went above and beyond in assisting me from songwriting, to voice lessons, to guidance with production and recording and navigating the local music scene. Hannah knows what she is talking about in both vocal and music techniques, as well as the business side of music. And even more important, she truly loves what she does and has a natural ability for teaching in a way that will help you grow immensely! If you are even slightly on the fence about taking lessons from her, don't be--you won't be disappointed!"

This allows anyone to comprehend and master the rules of music in a third of the time other teachers have taken to teach the same information. He is professional, personable and an all around great teacher .
He has taught my daughter as well. We study songwriting together.
I highly recommend Gary!"

"My voice has significantly improved after lessons with Hannah. My tone and pitch have also improved dramatically. If you are interested in writing songs, Hannah is also a great teacher for that. I have written many songs since taking lessons from her. You don't even have to leave your home because Hannah can teach skype lessons. Many people don't like Skype lessons because they seem impersonal. I recommend trying a free lesson. You will see that Hannah makes it seem like she's there in person. I live in the country so this has been very convenient. I love her teaching style. She has empowered me to create many beautiful songs. She is very well qualified and knows what she's talking about."

When you're learning how to write a song, looking at how other songs are structured can be a great place to start. Like looking at a map before you go on a roadtrip, checking out the basic elements of songs you love gives you a sense of how they were written and what you need to do to write a song of your own. If analyzing all your favorite songs sounds like a daunting task (it is), you're in luck. The Billboard Experiment wanted to know if there was a formula that could determine which songs …
