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.

Students in this subject can study a variety of components related music theory and/or songwriting. Students can expect to learn the fundamentals of music theory and how it works, and if interested how to incorporate this knowledge into their own songs or musical interests.

Students will be expected to supply their own instruments, equipment and materials in instances where they would like to relate their music theory study to a specific instrument. They must also bring a notebook to write down songs they are interested in and/or artists and groups they would like to study.

Everything went well until we decided to do in home classes. After we paId him upfront he canceled a couple of time then he rescheduled a virtual class where he never showed up, we texted him and 20 minutes later he sent a text letting us know he was too busy And couldn’t continue teaching my daughter. We asked for the refund which we haven’t received yet. He is a good teacher just very unprofessional. we didn’t lose that much money but he hurt my daughter since she looking forward to learn from him. I wouldn’t recommend him.

Janeen has been working with my teenage daughter for less than a year. During that time, my daughter has made noticeable improvements with her singing and confidence. Janeen has also tapped in to my daughter's creative abilities and started teaching her to write her own songs. Janeen's ability to build relationships with her clients is what makes her shine above the rest. She is professional, experienced, knowledgeable, and shows great care and patience when mentoring my daughter. Singing with Janeen is more than just learning and enhancing a skill. Her mentorship also helps build my daughter's character.
