Private Songwriting Teacher

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!

About Vanessa

Become the masterful Singer that you really ARE! Learn to bring out the natural beauty and power of your Voice, and to match your own unique personality and vocal qualities to complementing repertoire in order to show your voice and talents in their best light. We'll develop the repertoire that fit

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.

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.

If you're someone who has had a secret drawer full of songs you've never finished or has always wanted to write one and didn't know where to start, or if you're more of a nerd like me and have unfinished music-y sketches on your computer somewhere or you have ambitious musical ideas in your head you've never been able to put to paper, or if you love music, but you would have no idea how to go about writing your own music I'd love to help you realize your own artistic projects!

"Gaby is a wonderful musician! By working with her, I have learned so much about songwriting and musical composition. During our sessions, we covered topics such as piano, vocals, recording, melody, etc. Our sessions have made me a more confident singer and writer. She truly cares about her students and works hard to deliver the best results. She encouraged me as a teacher and helped me to finish and record my first demo. After working with her, I am even more inspired to create music and sing! Overall, she is a an excellent teacher and a genuinely kind person!!!"

"Lorin helped me hone my songwriting skills immensely, by not only teaching but collaborating with me when necessary. It was refreshing to find someone who put his teachings into practical learning, where I could see the outcomes become apparent. He’s a nice dude, and is experienced equally across his fields. He guided me to making intelligent choices for equipment purchases, both instruments and pro audio gear. We first met while he was living in New York, and boy has he traveled since. I think living in so many different states, and being that well journeyed has given him good cultural depth to his work. Check out some of his own collabs with singers and musicians from all over the world...that really says it all."

"Enormous Student base an affirmation of an Enormously Successful Teacher

Fawn is a warrior for justice. She rights all the wrongs of other teachers bad coaching. She turned my sons bad piano habits around in just 2 lessons! My daughter's bad vocal habits changed after the first lesson! I have never seen anything like it. We are grateful to have found her. I now have confidence that my children are in the best hands possible. I love the energy she puts into her recitals and the enormous student base she has is an affirmation that she is doing great things in California!
