Songwriting is both a creative process and methodical process. As a songwriting teacher, I try to help students support their creativity by learning about the craft of songwriting. I am as much a student of songwriting as I am a professional and believe the reason I was able to land my publishing deal was because of my study of the subject of songwriting. I'm looking forward to sharing those lessons with you!

About Alvin A.

Whether you are looking to write or produce, I can help bring both beginners, intermediate and advanced students to the next level. I've written and produced songs that have appeared on Power 105.1, NYC's biggest Urban Radio Station, CBC, Canada's biggest radio station and some of the biggest Spotify playlists in pop, dance and Rnb. I teach production on Logic Pro X, but am also fluent in Pro Tools, which I use to record and mix as an in-house producer/ engineer at Mercy Sound Studios, one of NYC's premier recording studios. I teach songwriting by accompanying on guitar, piano or with a beat. I have been writing professionally for 5 years and can help get beginner writers up to speed on the way writing sessions work on a professional level, or just get you writing songs at home for yourself. Looking forward to learning more about your goals!

I would definitely recommend working with Alvin. As a producer, he always keeps an eye on trends, he listens a lot of new music and he is very sensitive to elements. He tries to incorporate in his tracks the best findings and he is open to experiment.
As a songwriter, Alvin has a very clear understanding of commercial sound and knows what consist a catchy lyrics. He thoroughly selects the best words and phrases for the songs to bring the best to the audience.
Alvin is very passionate about what he’s doing and ambitious. Very nice person, easy to talk to, easy to do deal with.

Alvin is a great producer and collaborator to work with! I have been working with Alvin the past few months, and it has been a great experience! He is dedicated to making quality music, and really understand the needs of a songwriter and vocalist from the role of a producer and arranger. He takes the time and care with his clients to deliver results in a timely manner, and I look forward to creating more great songs with him in the future!
