How do you learn to write songs? What are the nuts and bolts of songwriting? Isn't it all just passion and self expression? No. There are tricks to learn, mistakes to avoid, and processes to develop that make songwriting more easy and fun.
I've been a teacher and record producer for over 15 years, not to mention a singer/songwriter and sideman. Over the years, I've studied songwriting to learn what makes a great song work and now I'd like to share that with you. Focusing more on the songs than the beats or the singing, I'll help you develop airtight songs that stand up to scrutiny and can be played anywhere, anytime in any format.

About Zak

I've been a touring musician, solo performer and teacher for almost 20 years. I've taught guitar, piano, bass and drums, but currently I am focusing on songwriting. I've released several records and have had many songs licensed to film and TV. My approach to songwriting revolves around improving

I can help you if you are struggling with writer's block, with accompanying your melody on piano or guitar, music theory, using poetic language, and coming up with catchy melodies.

I am confident I can help you with this, since I wrote and released 12 songs in 12 weeks! Youtube search "Krysti Subieta Angelgrams" and listen to some of the songs I wrote during that project.

About Krysti

Music is the love of my life, and teaching music is my absolute fulfillment. My 20 years of music experience will give you a mind-blowing understanding of music, whether you like modern or classic styles. We can explore singing and songwriting in styles of Pop, Rock, Folk, Latin, Musical Theate

Jon
Krysti has been a great instructor for me, an older, inexperienced student. She and I share a technical background. I find her skill and willingness to 'debug' my problems week after week to be helpful, easy to understand, and on target.

I'm still at the newb stage with clarinet, an amazingly tricky instrument. But it's my favorite sound, and I'm stickin' with it as long as Krystina can stand me.
Daniel
Krysti is a fantastic, motivating vocal coach. She inspires and makes you feel comfortable at the same time. Very technically minded and understands the mechanics of shaping the mouth and throat to enlarge your voice. I had a vocational interruption but will return soon to continue.
Tom
I have been taking singing lessons from Krysti for 6 weeks. In that time I feel Krysti has taken my raw voice and turned it into a singing voice. She is thorough, flexible, easy to work with and the lessons go by so fast! I highly recommend her as a voice teacher.

"Enormous Student base an affirmation of an Enormously Successful Teacher

Fawn is a warrior for justice. She rights all the wrongs of other teachers bad coaching. She turned my sons bad piano habits around in just 2 lessons! My daughter's bad vocal habits changed after the first lesson! I have never seen anything like it. We are grateful to have found her. I now have confidence that my children are in the best hands possible. I love the energy she puts into her recitals and the enormous student base she has is an affirmation that she is doing great things in California!

"I have been taking lessons with Jimmy for years now for music theory, acoustic guitar, singing, recording, and now songwriting. Its awesome to have all those options in one place. Jimmy has a lot of experience when it comes to writing songs and it shows in the way he teaches. He always shows excitement towards the new songs I bring to him, and encourages me to keep writing. He has taught me how easy it can be to create songs, while taking what he has taught me with music theory to push the song to the next level. The best part is when I decide I like a song, he has the ability to record it for me in his studio. This process of recording and listening to what you have created is invaluable. I always look forward to lessons with Jimmy and highly recommend him."
