Hire Concetta, especially to support a beginning violin player! She is warm, professional and very adept at finding your child's musical strengths and then identifying material to help them access and enjoy the music and instrument. AKA GOOD TIMES for all and excited to continue...as it should be. Thank you Concetta for your expertise and flexibility with schedule. Keri-Ann

Private Songwriting Teacher

Songwriting is both a creative process and methodical process. As a songwriting teacher, I try to help students support their creativity by learning about the craft of songwriting. I am as much a student of songwriting as I am a professional and believe the reason I was able to land my publishing deal was because of my study of the subject of songwriting. I'm looking forward to sharing those lessons with you!

I would definitely recommend working with Alvin. As a producer, he always keeps an eye on trends, he listens a lot of new music and he is very sensitive to elements. He tries to incorporate in his tracks the best findings and he is open to experiment.
As a songwriter, Alvin has a very clear understanding of commercial sound and knows what consist a catchy lyrics. He thoroughly selects the best words and phrases for the songs to bring the best to the audience.
Alvin is very passionate about what he’s doing and ambitious. Very nice person, easy to talk to, easy to do deal with.
Liz T.
Alvin is a great producer and collaborator to work with! I have been working with Alvin the past few months, and it has been a great experience! He is dedicated to making quality music, and really understand the needs of a songwriter and vocalist from the role of a producer and arranger. He takes the time and care with his clients to deliver results in a timely manner, and I look forward to creating more great songs with him in the future!

Online Songwriting Teacher

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!

"Janeen is a super amazing and talented songwriter, singer & producer! Any idea you might have for a song, she is able to understand your desire and help you bring that into existence! She is super creative and never gives up! If you have a any melody that you want as a song, even in your head, or whatever it may be, she will do everything possible to help create it! Without a doubt, song writing can be difficult at times when you’re trying to find the right words and beats to portray your personal message with style and flow...but when working with Janeen you’ll never encounter a difficult time, without laughter and motivation to help you get through it! She makes it incredibly fun! She is a Super awesome lady and I highly recommend her!"

"I have been taking lessons with Jimmy for years now for music theory, acoustic guitar, singing, recording, and now songwriting. Its awesome to have all those options in one place. Jimmy has a lot of experience when it comes to writing songs and it shows in the way he teaches. He always shows excitement towards the new songs I bring to him, and encourages me to keep writing. He has taught me how easy it can be to create songs, while taking what he has taught me with music theory to push the song to the next level. The best part is when I decide I like a song, he has the ability to record it for me in his studio. This process of recording and listening to what you have created is invaluable. I always look forward to lessons with Jimmy and highly recommend him."

"In the course of a few lessons with Gfire, I (with coaching) wrote a song that I felt pretty good about. I've written a few songs before and had learned the basics, but I enjoyed learning her method (which, in a phrase, would have to be "keep going") and I plan to use it to see if it'll help with my productivity. Gfire was always very upbeat and positive without being phony, encouraging without being demanding, so the lessons were always enjoyable. I would recommend her."
