Private Songwriting Teacher

Songwriting is often made out to be difficult, it's not! We will write several songs in your first lesson. The trick to it is finding inspiration and bridging that inspiration with your knowledge of music. Chord progression, melody, literature, the spoken word and studying how other songs are written are some of the things we'd work on. Whether you already play an instrument and want to learn to write songs or would like to integrate songwriting with your current instrumental studies, it is worthwhile regardless and can actually help you better understand your instrument as well as music as a whole.

As a teacher, I have worked with of many ages and backgrounds. One of my students, Skylar Stecker, has gone on to become a successful major label recording artist recently becoming the youngest artist to receive a number 1 on the dance billboard charts. I recently had the opportunity to tour with

I had an excellent experience with Kris. He challenged me but also understood my specific circumstances and pace. He was flexible with scheduling and helped me greatly improve my piano playing in a short amount of time. We worked on arranged music and songwriting. I’d recommend Kris for all levels!

Online Songwriting Teacher

Songwriting is a pleasure and easy to learn once the basics are explored. Music Theory concepts are explored so songwriting comes naturally. A focus on the storytelling aspects of songwriting (along with emotional content) is covered. Let's get started - I love helping with your songwriting goals. Which - by the way - I make it a habit to encourage the songwriting aspirations of young singers and piano players. I respect and foster their efforts. I look forward to knowing that one day some of my students will look back over their childhood and say, "Oh yes - me? I started writing songs when I was eight." And, of course, for older students I have a lot of resources for assisting.

About Marty

Open up to your own unique voice. Play piano with energy and freedom. "With singing, your body is your instrument. Helping you become all you can be as a performer is my number one goal. Protecting your voice is a close second as we work to strengthen your vocal range and the quality of your so

Marty is a wonderful teacher and very easy to understand. I tried many online packages and other teachers and I could not keep up with their instruction. Marty is clear and has figured out ways to make It possible for me to play much faster than I ever thought I could. I will be returning from a trip east and will continue my lessons when I return. I am very happy that I found Marty.

Having Marty as a piano teacher has been amazing. I’m 3 lessons in and I’m very surprised at how far I’ve come in such a short amount of time with Marty’s guidance. Marty does not have a set curriculum that you must follow. Instead, she forms the lessons around the student and their needs. Marty is so great at interpreting where you are, the pace you need to go, and the best practices that will fit your personality/habits. She provides assignments that will keep you busy throughout the week as you practice. I’ve never felt like I’ve been pushed too hard either. Marty gives assignments that will not be too overwhelming, but at the same time, they are ones that are very fun because you see the improvement in your playing. To be able to find this balance shows the sign of a great teacher in my eyes. Only 3 lessons in, and yet I felt compelled to write this review in such a short amount of time. Thank you Marty!

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!

"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."

Songwriting Tips: How to Write Lyrics To Your First Song

Are  you learning to play guitar because you want to be able to write your own songs? Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares some tips to help you write lyrics to your first song... Just as writing a song on guitar can seem like work for only a select few, so can writing the words to one. Once again, this assumption and the truth are completely unrelated.
