I have many years of experience writing songs and even helping singers and musicians all alike to refine songs that they have written. Let me help you formulate those songs you have been dreaming of and make them a reality!
Here's how I help teach songwriters:
-Chords/Progressions: I help instrumentalists get out of ruts they're stuck in and find new chord progressions. OR if you're new, I'll show you what's out there. I will also show you commonly used progressions so you know what's used. We will analyze successful songs to see what the writer did and then attempt to emulate those ideas in writing exercises
-Melodies: We'll learn what makes a good melody, and we'll write melodies that are good hooks.
-Lyrics: We'll talk about what makes good lyrics and learn to write good lyrics by modeling lyrics after other songs and writing and rewriting your own lyrics.
-Music Business: If you're interested as well we can learn how the music business works for songwriters.
Song form, lyric construction, melody formation, writing lyric and melody to a track vs 100% songwriting including music (chord) construction.
I believe it is important to have fun when learning a new instrument. Because, why do it if you don't enjoy it?
Therefore, I tailor all lessons per student to make sure you get the most out of your lessons. We can work on anything from learning new songs, to different techniques and theory or even performance.
As opposed to composition, song-writing is much more about exploring one's own thoughts and expressing one's self in a healthy way through music and lyric. In these lessons, I will give you the tools you need to be brave, be creative, and be intuitive. There will be a song-writing assignment each week, where you must bring in a complete song. This is to encourage productivity and to learn to be a little less self-critical of your own work. We will also explore what makes other songs great. Your interests will be kept in mind, as we dive into the lyrics and music behind your favorite tunes. This should be a blast, and I plan on learning as much if not more than you do. All of you are songwriters in the making, waiting to release your creative selves upon the world. I would love to help make this happen!
