Private Songwriting Teacher

Many students are satisfied learning covers, which is great, but the real fun and creativity is in writing your own music. Writing takes confidence and freedom and everyone has to start somewhere. I help new writers with laying down basic songs, and more advanced writers with nuance and innovation - how to borrow ideas from songs they love, use music theory to create harmony for lead melodies on guitar, piano, and voice

I also offer music recording on Garageband, guiding writers on how to select a beat, add tracks, and connect musical ideas. I've been writing and recording my music since 2004, which stretches from Pop and Country to Soul and Hard Rock. I share my process and allow writers to explore the process of artists they love to see the progression even the greatest artists go through.

Adam is a wonderful guitar instructor. He is very knowledgable and he is always calm, patient and very encouraging. He taught me a lot of ways to practice and enjoy music. Thank you Adam! I would highly recommend!

I took acoustic guitar lessons with Adam and he was a wonderful teacher. I had little knowledge of the guitar and felt I developed my skills quickly. Adam was patient, nice and came up with fun exercises and song selections. Would highly recommend Adam as a teacher!

Gabriel has been teaching my son Riser (age 7 now) for over 2 years now. We feel so blessed! My son progressed so quickly. Gabriel is patient, engaging and has a gift for helping kids grow their piano skills week by week. I love that he's also created "recitals" for his students to play for people! We recently switched from in home lessons to doing them through FaceTime, and it's almost like having Gabe in our home with us.
Paris
I’m an adult learner and was overwhelmed with the idea of jumping back into piano lessons after a long stint away and not a lot of foundation to start from. I enlisted the help of Gabriel and found his patience, encouragement and thoughtful teaching style put me right at ease! After a few lessons I was on my way and managed to stumble my way through a big chunk of a complicated song I had been wanting to learn! During this uncertain time in history where we are all self-isolating to protect ourselves and each other, I think there is no better time than to pick up where I left off and start my lessons again. I’ll be resuming online lessons with Gabriel again and encourage you to do the same! You won’t be disappointed. 🙂

Gabriel was amazing. He Taught my two kids and me for many years. I can’t say enough how amazing he is!!!
He is very patient and know how to deal with kids of all ages. He understands how each child is different and customize his lessons plans to their needs. He is truly an amazing teacher

About Garrett

I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now and I've played in just about every type of band. After playing in a metal band for about 5 years I switched over to a classic rock group for a couple years. In both of those groups I was lead guitar/lead vocals. Now for the last few years I've bee

I tried learning guitar a number of years ago. Garrett was great getting me started back into guitar. He quickly got me going with some simple chords and techniques. He has a strong understanding of guitar and makes it easy to understand. + he can play anything!
Derrick
What can I say about Garrett. I have never met a better guitarist in my 20 years of playing. Taking lessons with him was one of the best decisions I ever made. I would pay him double. No matter the guitar style, Garrett seems to have played it for years and has real insight on any of the different styles from Blues, to Country, to Rock, to Classic Rock, to Metal. He helped me not just learn riffs or songs but scales and has bug in teaching me more advanced music theory as well. He truly is the perfect mix of good person and amazing guitarist. Don’t miss the chance to learn from one of the best no matter your skill level!

Even it was my first lesson I can feel the progress and I am confident about achieving my goal. Thanks Ian!!
Xiaoqi
Ian is fantastic teacher. He was so patient with my toddler daughter. And when she became fuzzy during the class, Ian could be so creative to always come out with a way to calm her down and redirect her attention to other musical things. I would love him to be my daughter’s music teacher for as long as possible if I did not have to move.

Ian is very knowledgeable and is great in explaining theory and great in demonstrating so you can understand.

"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."

"Having worked with Greg over the course of several years now, I have the deepest respect for his teaching ability. As a performer with over 25 years of experience, I find it a rare and special talent for someone as gifted as Greg is (as an artist) to be as humble and willing to listen as he most certainly is. He promotes a learning atmosphere of safety while also ensuring excellence is produced by students. His grasp on musical theory is second to none, and his skill as a seasoned guitarist ensures that what is being taught by him is both credible and of the highest standards.
I am privileged to know Greg personally as well as professionally, and I can vouch (once again) for his humility, skill, professionalism, credibility as a working artist, integrity, and work ethic. His heart is to watch the lights go on in his students and his passion in doing so serve to distinguish him as one of th"

Songwriting 101: Using the "Long-Line" Concept

One of the most wonderful and rewarding things about the art of songwriting is that there are many different ways to approach making your own music. Arlington,TX music teacher Ric F. previously shared with us his tips on using rhythm as a guide to writing. Today, Ric would like to add another aspect to your understanding of writing songs, something he calls the "long-line" concept. Unlike visual art where you can see it all at once, music takes “time” to reveal itself. Today I would like …
