Do you have ideas for songs but wonder how to structure them into complete songs? Do you hear great tunes in your head but not know how to fit them to chords? Are you puzzled by how weave a magical melody to match your lyrics? Stumped by limited rhyme possibilities or awkward phrasing?
Perhaps you could benefit by having a seasoned songwriter as a mentor to coach you in creating beautiful songs in your own unique style. That's where I can help.

Great teacher for my 8yr old daughter. He is patient and explains things I'm a way that gets through to my kid. Highly recommended!

Phenomenal teacher! Rob simplifies advance techniques and organizes your lesson based on your personal goals. My lessons have been very informative but still always fun! I’ve improved significantly since our lessons began and have received guidance on how to make the most of my practice time on my own as well.

During this quarantine, having my lessons virtually is such a light during these challenging times, and they’re just as enjoyable as in person. Rob really is easygoing and has a great sense of humor!

Excellent teacher! Highly recommend! Feel like I’m going to learn so much and improve greatly!

I have written and recorded well over 100 professional level songs. I teach how to understand diatonic structure and chord resolution and how, once you know the "rules" you can break them all to play exactly what you hear should be in the song.

"Love my classes with Hilary so far! I'm developing myself as a songwriter to launch my professional music project very soon. Half of the class is basic piano in order to be able to come up with melodies and the other half is writing lyrics/songs. Hilary is very sweet, patient and explains terms/theory in a very clear and easy way to understand. Songwriting can be a very vulnerable thing to do and Hilary creates a safe, professional space for the writing to happen. I'm excited to take more classes with her and definitely recommend her!"

The Anatomy of a Hit Pop Song [Infographic]
