Everyone's a Poet/Singer/Songwriter at heart! We all have songs and melodies and poetic fancies that have been sleeping inside of us (sometimes for years), and we long to bring them out, but somehow lack the tools, and, most importantly, the encouragement to share our creative treasure trove with others, and, even for our own self-satisfaction. As an awarding and published poet, I'll help you begin to express your thoughts, emotions, and stories in your own songs, and in your own unique style that will bring your message to the world! No time like the present to start!

Become the masterful Singer that you really ARE!

Ben is fantastic and is helping me rediscover a lost love in playing the piano. I couldn’t be happier with him as an adult learner.

Ben was kind and reassuring at all times and also very knowledgeable and helpful with the technical help we needed. The kids felt very at ease with the way he gave instruction and I felt very confident that they are going to really learn from him.

Poetry is the highest form of language, and music is the language of emotion. Putting them together is the art of songwriting.

It’s a deeply personal art, to me. We explore what connects you to the world, and how you hope to share it with those around you.

My approach integrates standard songwriting principles with emotional discovery as scaffolding for vulnerable human expression. I help you unlock your inner world through lyrics, melody, and harmonic relationships not limited by genre.

Whether it’s rock, pop, country, bluegrass, jazz, showtunes, R&B, folk, or anything else on your mind, I’d love to work with you.

I started writing songs when I was 14 and that was 40 years ago. I have been the lead singer/songwriter/guitarist in many bands and have been performing and recording for over 30 years. I teach the foundations of music theory, chord progressions, melody, harmony and more on the road to writing you own songs. If you're already a songwriter, I can help workshop your songs with experienced, professional advice.

"I have been taking lessons with Jimmy for years now for music theory, acoustic guitar, singing, recording, and now songwriting. Its awesome to have all those options in one place. Jimmy has a lot of experience when it comes to writing songs and it shows in the way he teaches. He always shows excitement towards the new songs I bring to him, and encourages me to keep writing. He has taught me how easy it can be to create songs, while taking what he has taught me with music theory to push the song to the next level. The best part is when I decide I like a song, he has the ability to record it for me in his studio. This process of recording and listening to what you have created is invaluable. I always look forward to lessons with Jimmy and highly recommend him."

"Indigo is a fabulous and diverse teacher! I've been taking lessons with her for about 9 months. Although my lessons are "officially" for songwriting, we divide our time among that, guitar technique, and music theory. I've experienced so much progress and fun in several areas, and I attribute that to Indigo's teaching and guidance. I even wrote and produced my first solo song! Don't miss the chance to work with a great musician and teacher!"

"Fawn is an investment in my future, money spent well

Fawn takes you on an unexpected fun, whirlwind of learning when you take lessons with her. Can’t read the notes? No problem, she’s got you. Vocal problems? Oh yeah, she fixes that too. Trouble in the studio? Voice off pitch? Need mic technique? Weak on piano? Sight singing? Can’t play the blues? Can’t play classical? Need to learn how to write a song? Can’t find a hook for your song? Don’t worry, Fawn to the rescue! Seriously, is there nothing this woman can’t do? I soak up her wisdom like a sponge. I’m currently working in the studio with her on my debut album and we are half-way finished. It is sounding ah-may-zing! I am learning so much from this studio wiz. Having her in my life the past 3 years has been the right choice and an investment in my future. Here’s to another successful year with Fawn on my team."
