Lesson Details

Songwriting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
It is my goal to help students tell their own personal stories by developing creative and deep connections to the songs that they may write and/or sing ! We will focus on lyric writing, interpretation, and can get as detailed into the theoretical aspects of composing as the student may like. Songwriting gives me a sense of purpose, expression, and safety- I hope to help students cultivate what their specific voice is and what songwriting means to them. There is no one way to write or compose !

What a joy it is to get to be playing and teaching music! I enjoy performing a wide variety of music, but my favorites include performing original music, Jazz, R&B/Soul, and Pop. My experience at the New School for Jazz has helped me to develop a keen ear for harmony and discover my love for teaching ! It is a passion of mine to help singers and songwriters strengthen their own unique voice. I look forward to meeting new students and engaging in supportive, productive, and enjoyable lessons filled with growth !

With her patient understanding and calm presence, Crystal Rose is a very engaging and positive music teacher. What originally started out as guitar lessons has grown into a deeper exploration of music through voice lessons and songwriting. I fully credit this expansion of both my guitar playing technique and my musical creativity to her skills as a teacher. After each lesson I feel inspired and excited to keep practicing what I have learned as it carries me over into my week. I am so happy to have found her and highly recommend Crystal Rose as a music teacher.

Learning voice technique with Crystal is the best experience! I’m getting a lot of tools for proper use of my voice in a supportive environment and with a professional care.
I highly recommend hiring Crystal.

Crystal is an amazing voice teacher! I learned a lot from her both in terms of technique and style for my own songs. I highly recommend her!

Crystal is a joy to have as an instructor. Overall, she really helped me connect to my breath and sing confidently with solid technique. She's pretty attentive to you and your journey, wherever you are...she will always adapt vocal exercises to my sound that day and enable areas within my voice to be at their best. She's very flexible with lesson scheduling and prompt to respond to messages. I have always liked to sing but re-learning to sing with Crystal's guidance really helped me find my voice and work towards showcasing it!

Crystal is a fantastic teacher. She helped me with my songwriting and coached me on my singing. She is very kind and supportive. She has the easiest demeanor and puts you in a really comfortable, creative space when she's working with you.

I cannot say enough good things about Crystal. She's an excellent teacher and an excellent person.
