Brian
Great. Knowledgable teacher
William
Seemed a little disorganized. It might have been part of the "getting to know me" process and what I wanted to accomplish. The hour went by very fast!
Frederick
I have taken lessons from Benjamin, and found him to be an excellent teacher. If you are looking for someone to teach you bass, or guitar you can't find a more patient teacher. I would recommend him to anyone seeking lessons.

Songwriting can seem mysterious to someone who has never tried it, but really it's as easy as finding some chords that fit your mood and singing what you're feeling. We can talk about songwriting basics, common chords in popular songs, and ubiquitous song forms. You'll be writing for Nashville in no time!

For the first 10 years I wrote songs, I was almost always the youngest person in the room. Then, I found myself working for many years with artists and writers of my own age group. Now, as time has marched on, I am most often the "old guy" at the party, as we work on music for TV shows. I think this gives me a unique perspective. I have a 40 year history as a professional songwriter, and I still make music every day. The incredible opportunities and relationships that I have had with amazing artists of all sorts remain a source of inspiration. As a writer, producer/engineer, and bass player, I have helped create hit songs over 4 decades. I have been so fortunate to work with a wide variety of artists, such as Emmylou Harris, Marcy Playground, Fuel, Dolly Parton, Jeffrey Gaines, Sunshine, the Badlees, and many more. As a Voting Member of the Grammy Academy, I have advocated for young and creatively new artists.

I have been given two ASCAP PLUS Awards for mentoring and co-creating ...

Hey, I'm Bob. I write. Almost every day for a long, long time. It has been so worth it, and continues to bring me friends, joy, challenge, (a little heartache)....and mailbox money. I have helped create hit songs over 4 decades. I have been so fortunate to work with a wide variety of artists, such

Great job working with me to help me hone my songwriting skills... Bob's clear knowledge of songwriting and the music business in general was extremely helpful... I'd recommend Bob's expertise for any aspiring songwriter or someone interested in how the music business works...
Karl
I’ve been writing songs with Bob on and off since 1989, I think it was. He’s the best: inventive – lyrically and melodically; with a deep understanding of musical structure and a wealth of experience. Our songs have aired on several cable shows and songs of mine he produced and played on were used on NBC, ABC, FOX, public television, as well as on German TV, Sirius, and radio stations around the world. You’ll get what you paid for: Bob’s the real deal.

Karl Williams

“First-rate compositions,” wrote Ken Tucker ("Entertainment Weekly" and radio’s "Fresh Air") of Williams’ songs. Both "Publishers Weekly" and "School Library Journal" highly recommend Williams’ two CDs for children. "One out of thousands!” wrote a reviewer for Europe’s "Radio Marabu" of Williams’s pop/folk-rock CD, “...true, honest music…a priceless treasure for a lifetime.”
Richard
Bob is the real deal! Bob brings a wealth of skills, knowledge and experience to any project. His approach is always a cooperative effort with an uncomplicated goal of a soulful melody over intriguing lyrics and chords. I've know Bob for more than 30 years.

She knows exactly what will improve your song and your writing technique but is also so considerate about staying true your style and taste.

My songs have gone from decent to catchy, fun, and powerful! Anyone looking to get into songwriting or looking to write stronger songs would be lucky to take lessons from her! I can't recommend her enough!"

"Technology today is incredible. I'm in Norway, Fawn is in Los Angeles. Where else could I find a quality teacher with a couple of hit songs help me at my craft? If it weren't for the internet I would have never found such a talented songwriter to help me tighten my songs. I love, love, LOVE the time I spend with Fawn hashing out my songs to record with my band in the studio. She is so gifted, easy going, precise and fun. She really respects keeping the integrity and emotions of my songs and is good at keeping people open to changes that are necessary to make a mediocre song great."
