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.

Really good music teachers who work well with students of various temperaments and abilities are difficult to come by. My goal is to instill a sense of music appreciation, while at the same time teaching students about the technical aspects of music. I feel qualified to teach music and to do so in a way that each student feels special, valued and encouraged. With my real world experience and unique style of teaching I believe I am an ideal musician to study with.

About Conrad

I was introduced to music early on by my parents, particularly my father who is a respectful painter. Being classically trained on the piano I started playing and writing songs at the tender age of seven. My early piano influences are Mozart, Beethoven and Gershwin amongst others. Growing up, I bec

Hey there!

I am a double-platinum award winning music-producer, songwriter, artist and musician from Germany.

I started playing the guitar when I was 12 years old and since then I was able to gain a lot of experiences on stage, in the studio and as a teacher!
I played in a band for many years, I write my own songs and I produce bands and solo artists.

In 2015 I’ve graduated from the well known ArtEZ University of Music in the Netherlands with a Bachelors of Music degree.
During my studies I’ve covered a lot of subjects e.g.: music theory, music history, music production, music management and also „how to teach music“!

After my studies I’ve worked for several years as a music-producer and achieved a double-platinum award for my work.

As you can see, I’ve got a lot of different qualities and I would love to share my knowledge with you!
Moreover I’m experienced in online-teaching and I have worked with several age groups already!

The most important thing is that I ...

Sergej is a versatile guitar teacher and he helped me to reach the next level within a couple of months! Thanks Sergej! I'm looking forward to see you next week! :)
Evgenij
Sergej is a great and experienced guitar teacher! I like his holistic approach and would definitely recommend him! I am enjoying his lessons since a couple of months and I'm glad that he's teaching me.
Jasmin
Sergej is an awesome guitar teacher! I chose Sergej as my teacher as he is very experienced on different levels. From the first lesson on I knew that he had a clear picture in mind with a lesson plan tailored to my needs and profile. His lessons are highly structured, with a fun finger warm up, listening activities (through him, I learnt how important those are for my personal development and goals) and plenty of time to work on songs that I always wanted to play! His approach is holistic and the feedback I get is always super constructive; plus he has lots of tips on hand that help reaching my goals faster! I have taken lessons at schools before but none of them was as good as the experience with Sergej! Not to forget: Sergej's has such a friendly and calm personality - I would highly recommend him as a teacher!

Fawn is a highly professional teacher who goes above and beyond to teach excellent vocal technique. My daughter went from thinking that she could not sing at all, to discovering that she had a very pleasant voice after a just a handful of lessons! Her training with Fawn has helped strengthen her voice, has improved her confidence and has given her something truly rewarding to focus on and pursue. I particularly admire Fawn's professionalism and the seriousness and discipline with which she teaches vocal technique. She is strict, yet fun. Her approach gets quick results, so your money is very well spent!
Mod
Miss Fawn's natural, bright, positive, honest and energetic personality creates an ideal learning environment that's comfortable for any student. Whether you're a seasoned professional, or just starting off, Miss Fawn's expertise and natural ability to explain with ease the complexity of singing and inventing tailor made exercises for each individual makes her an ideal mentor and coach. My overall experience thus far with her as my vocal coach has been nothing but a positive and exciting experience. I highly recommend Miss Fawn to anyone who is looking for an excellent vocal coach, piano teacher or songwriting coach. She is excellent in all things music and worth the investment!
Moira
Perfect! Very good teacher! Fawn really builds my confidence. She helps me with. my skills, teaching me. things I had no concept of and also showing me things I never even considered. Really helping me develop my voice and I look forward to working with her more and seeing how far I can take it! She is invested in her students and their success!

How do you teach someone how to write a great song? The short answer: you can't! I know, this coming from someone charging money for lessons on how to write songs. I can teach you the elements of a great song. I can show you ways to get started, ways to develop ideas, ways to structure the parts. Great songs have something else; something greater than the sum of its parts. Great songs have personality. Great songs come from the heart. Great songs are made by PEOPLE. That is you! You are ultimately the one putting together these elements. You are not inventing a new language or a 13th note, you are mixing the ingredients to make the dish. I'm just the grocery store. The really friendly, super fresh, incredibly extensive grocery store.

I began writing music seriously at around the age of 14. At this stage, it was all trial and error. I had no idea how chords worked so I just went for it, using my ears to guide me. It was "I like that, what's next?" When I began my Music Major at ...

"I'm not being hyperbolic when I write that Kelly is one of the finest teachers I've ever had. I'm a singer-songwriter with unlimited drive, but frustratingly limited musical skills, and Kelly has been able to teach me theory and any number of other related skills such that I've made great progress. She is very patient, extremely musical, and has great taste, which sure doesn't hurt!"

Aspiring bass players should capitalize on his ability to play

Songwriting Tips: How to Write Lyrics To Your First Song

Are  you learning to play guitar because you want to be able to write your own songs? Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares some tips to help you write lyrics to your first song... Just as writing a song on guitar can seem like work for only a select few, so can writing the words to one. Once again, this assumption and the truth are completely unrelated. You don't need to be Bob Dylan or Bernie Taupin to do it – you only need to have something to say. I first began writing lyrics as teenag …
