Private Songwriting Teacher

As a songwriter, my style has been influenced by the Psych-Rock, Punk and Post-Punk movements. I write songs that have connections with The Beatles, Syd Barrett, David Byrne, The Cure, Guided by Voices, Arcade Fire, Mew - to name a few. Whether you enjoy Pop music or wish to break out of the traditional pop song structure, I can help you develop your own personal flair. Originality is key!

NOTE: I recorded a CD in 2006 that was selected as 1 out of 48 albums to be nominated for the Grammys as best Alternative Rock album of the year. I have the document to prove this :)

I currently teach in my home studio with recording capability, or the students home.

We had our first saxophone lesson with Benjamin today and it was excellent! He is clearly a master that can assess a student’s skill level and adapt the lesson to suit their needs. He is just what we needed :)

I have been a songwriter for 5 years. Songwriting is often thought to be about writing about your life. It can be, but in fact some of the most prolific song lyrics have been written without any real story behind it. What writers such as The Eagles, Michael Jackson, John Mayer, Nirvana, etc used was their ability to project the feelings of those around them into their song for inspiration. Their imagination, life experiences, and repetition guided them to write lyrics that wouldn’t even be how they normally speak. Through my lessons, I will talk you through my process, we will go over exercises I use to help me overcome “writers block” and talk about what makes a good song. Your homework will include listening to lyrics and analyzing them. We will play rhyme games to improve improvisation, and I can even help with current lyrics you’re working on. If you’ve ever wanted to write songs but didn’t know where to start, sign up and let’s get started!

Great lesson, I leaned so much from Kevin! He has so much patience and is really good with giving tips and tricks.
Jon
Highly recommend Kevin! Just started drums and did 2 months of lessons with him at his in-home studio. Really cool set up, and he listens to what you’re interested in learning, while also recommending what to practice during the week between lessons. Also had a few jam sessions with him which were awesome!
Super chill guy, and I’m sure he’s great for every skill level and age. Thanks Kevin, will be back soon for follow up sessions!
Ellie M
Kevin is very resourceful and his instruction is clear and effective. As someone who did not have any experience with music software before, I’m already getting familiar with Logic and making songs with it after few weeks. Looking forward to future lessons.
