Songwriting is a magical and personal art. I will facilitate your strengths and assist you with your desired outcomes as a songwriter. We focus on lyrical structure, story detail, plot twists, word choice, chord structure and–above all–letting your unique personality shine through your work. Accountability is often the biggest step towards a consistent and developed writing practice. I am here to help you drill through the dirt and bedrock of everyday life until we reach the undercurrent of creative flow that makes life worth writing about.

My name is Lucciana (Loo-Chee-Ah-Nah...I was named after Italian opera legend Luciano Pavarotti).
Background: I began formally studying music at age six. I spent my childhood and teen years participating in choir, orchestra, private instrument lessons (piano, voice, violin, Dobro), musical theater and I also played in local bands with musicians much older than I was at the time.
I became a music teacher for the first time at a small music store in 2009. I absolutely fell in love with sharing the skills and techniques that had helped me become a lifelong musician and I have been teaching ever since.
Instrument Lessons: My main instrument is the Dobro slide guitar. It is a very unique instrument that I love to share with people. I have equivalent experience with piano and voice instruction. I also teach guitar and ukulele.
Other Types of Lessons: I have run numerous songwriting workshops for all ages and I do one-on-one song coaching as well. I've been a professional songwriter for over a decade, and I love helping people refine and enhance their writing craft. We are all writers deep down! I will help you unlock your inner voice and express yourself using the power of music.
Summary: I have extensive experience working with a variety of age groups and special interest students. My areas of expertise range from young children (0-5) and adult beginners to live performance coaching for future professionals, songwriting coaching/feedback, and ear training.
Most importantly, I am passionate about teaching music in a way that leaves each student connected to the joy of creative play. No matter what age, skill level, or instrument, I fully believe that music meets you where you are and enriches your life in exceptional ways. I will work with you on what you wish to learn, incorporating skill, music theory, dexterity, technique, improv and repertoire into your curriculum in a way that leaves both of us inspired at the end of each lesson. I look forward to meeting and working with you!

Fantastic! My daughter is in love!
Lucciana's incredible energy and ability to connect with children in an instant is the first thing that I experienced upon meeting her. Underneath her warm, welcoming exterior are layers upon layers of musical talent and wisdom that make for a top notch teacher/collaborator. Lucciana truly is the best of the best. Los Angeles is at a loss without her!!!Show More
Lucciana is one of the most inspiring people I've ever worked with. She makes everyone feel like they have something valid to offer, and her positivity is the perfect ingredient for fostering creativity.
Lucciana's positive energy is authentic and real! My daughters studied music with her for years. She was always punctual, respectful, considerate, and careful. Her vivacious joy of living is contagious! The most important things she shared with my children was her positive energy and confidence. By modeling these qualities, she teaches them. My youngest daughter has special needs, and Lucciana intuitively adapted to her special needs far better than most therapists. Highly recommend! She taught piano, ukulele, singing, and performance.Show More
Lucciana truly cares about your performance. She's warm and kind and can provide specific feedback in a way that is inspiring. She's also incredibly funny!
Lucciana has helped me become more confident in performance on piano. Her contagious positive energy has helped me to take my piano playing to the next level by piano in front of a crowd. You'll be lucky to have her as a teacher!
