While there's no magic formula for writing songs, there are certain constructs to follow to make your songs better. You'll gain insights I've gained over years of writing and researching how songs are constructed. I'll share what I've been told by the hit makers.

Beginner to intermediate.
For the beginner musician, songwriting mostly entails learning about how to stay in a given key, as well as basic song structure. For the more experienced musician, there is melody and solo construction, harmony, alternative time signatures, and things of that nature.

I will teach you the fundamentals of writing songs, including choosing chords that work and sound good (harmony), writing melodies from scratch that will be likable and memorable, and putting it all together with lyrics. If you want, we can even dive into some light music production (recording and editing your song, etc). I want to help you get that music out of your head and your heart and into the world!

I have years of experience teaching foundations of composition , music theory and aural skills. The focus have been on understanding of chords, harmonic analysis, form and structure analysis and harmonization. The Aural skills focuses on melodic, rhythmic and harmonic recognition through the process of dictation and or melodic-rhythmic imitation. Extra emphasis on color & tune through use of pedal techniques , alterations, grace notes are also introduced, in parallel to basic musical skills.

We signed our 5 year old up for beginning lessons with Ardalan, and he was very engaging and patient with our son. Our son responded well to his method of teaching. We were looking for lessons to encourage his natural interest in piano until he was old enough to take lessons at his school, which is more convenient for us. We very much appreciated Ardalan’s support and enthusiasm he shared with our son.
Jasmine C.
My son has been playing piano for 9 years but he hit a wall with ISSMA state silver in piano solo last year, so our goal is achieve piano solo state gold this year. We made the switch to Ardalan didn't know what to expect just 2 months before ISSMA events and my son has earned ISSMA state distinction gold medal this year with Ardalan's help and hard working.

Ardalan's teaching method is eye opening to us after many piano teachers we have experienced in the past. He has been teaching my son many technical piano playing skills he desperately needs but no other teachers have ever taught him before. And Ardalan's performance preparation tips are so helpful for my son to perform in the real event.
Hakan Mert T.
It was our first lesson with Ardalan, and we were really impressed with his teaching capabilities as well as his personality. We are so lucky to have him as our piano teacher and I highly recommend him for anyone interested.

"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 love her. She is so sweet, she is amazing I would tell all my friends interested in piano, voice, music theory, songwriting or anything having to do with music, to take lessons with her. I can’t believe how much I have improved on my songwriting, voice and playing. I wish I had found her sooner. She's a miracle worker.

"I've been learning songwriting and music theory from David and it couldn't be any better. He's very professional and personable, and he makes sure to work with you, not above you. He shows a genuine enthusiasm for his students' musical interests and formulates instruction around them. David encourages questions, which creates a comfortable and effective teacher-student interaction. Between my weekly lessons, I find myself impatiently counting down the days until my next scheduled lesson. While the genre of songwriting that I've been working on with David's guidance has been contemporary Christian, I'm sure that he would be an effective teacher in any genre, whether the student were writing songs or playing them."

"In the course of a few lessons with Gfire, I (with coaching) wrote a song that I felt pretty good about. I've written a few songs before and had learned the basics, but I enjoyed learning her method (which, in a phrase, would have to be "keep going") and I plan to use it to see if it'll help with my productivity. Gfire was always very upbeat and positive without being phony, encouraging without being demanding, so the lessons were always enjoyable. I would recommend her."
