Songwriting is tricky. There are formulas one can use, but do they work for your specific needs? What about the dreaded writer's block? What if you've never written a song? What do you do if you can't finish a song you've started? How do you keep from getting too repetitive in your style? All of these questions and more have valid and applicable answers and exercises. I can teach the standard songwriting structure, but I do more than that. I help you find your true creative style. We'll discover your favorite and most effective uses of words and melody. You have a creative voice that is truly unique. Now let's help you use it.

Great start with Steven. Can't wait for the next lesson!
Edozie E.
Steve has been teaching my two boys piano for a few months now and it’s been great. My kids are 6 and 7 and had never played an instrument before. They absolutely love their lessons and have made a ton of progress in the short time since they started. I would recommend Steve for any music lesson needs you have.
Tatiana H.
Steve is a great teacher. I had some small working knowledge after trying to teach myself for a year without any luck and with Steve's help I've learned a lot and can play a couple of songs! He really listens to you and what your interests are and focuses on those rather than the traditional method of going through the basics and earning things we have no interest in like we all did in band class in school. Of course if that's what you need he will, but in all its focused on you and what you need to progress yourself as a musician. He is also very easy to work with in terms of making and changing schedules. If you have a hectic and ever changing life like myself it's no problem for Steve to work around. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in taking their guitar playing to the next level.

Private Songwriting Teacher

I am a songwriting major at Berklee who has been writing music for practically as long as I could write. I focus mainly on pop and musical theater, but I will cater to my students' interests and goals. My specialties are lyric and melody writing, but I also frequently write harmonies and chord progressions. One of my originals was recently selected to be performed in the Berklee Gender Equality Showcase and I also co-write very frequently. I most often write with piano for my harmony, but sometimes write with guitar and ukulele as well.

Nicole was a wonderful online instructor. My daughter (9 y.o.) learned so much - chords, how to read notes, rhythms and songs. Nicole also helped her prepare for a virtual talent show. Nicole went above and beyond what we expected and we have really enjoyed lessons with her.

Nicole is fantastic with our 5-year old. She has been our piano teacher since March and we could not be happier. She is articulate and has patience with our kid and I am sure she will be great with any kid any age. Get Nicole to help your child become an amazing piano player.

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

Maria B.
All my three kids have enjoyed piano lessons with Marty. The oldest for more than two years! We are moving out of the country, so unfortunately we have to leave her; I wish we could take her with us! She is such a dedicated teacher. My kids have learned so much from her, not only playing the piano but also music theory. She is also flexible in scheduling, so we could always find a time that worked well for our busy family schedule. We will miss her!

"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."

10 Proven Steps For Writing Lyrics That Stick

The late Amy Winehouse tribute album Lioness: Hidden Treasures has been making waves on the UK music charts, securing the #1 spot just days after its release.  Although the posthumous album has had its share of drama and questionable reviews, the collection - with its mix of covers and raw, unfinished tunes polished up by the producers - seems fitting in depicting Amy as the troubled, tattered star that she was. As she sings at the start of "Best Friends, Right?": "I can't wait to get away f …
