I love to write music! It's one of the best ways I can think of to express yourself in a really beautiful way. Whether it's instrumental or vocal, I'd love to help you get your feelings out on paper and into the world where you can express it to others! You come in with an idea and we will make it happen. I can help you write tunes that you can sing or beautiful songs that you can play on your instrument, or both! Bring some ideas, and we will get to work. All the best in your endeavors and I'm excited to work with you!

Composition lessons with me will focus on expanding your songwriting and musical vocabulary, increasing your proficiency with music technology, and increasing speed in music notation. We can work with whatever DAW/notation software you use, though I personally use Logic and Sibelius.
