In order to write songs, you need to know how music works. My students learn, in a clear and fun method, how the structures of their favorite songs work. Let's start by learning about what we like to listen to, and then we'll have the tools to write something of our own!
I will teach you the basic concepts of how to compose songs and make those musical ideas of yours a reality. Through music theory techniques, progression theory, lyric concepts and ear training, we'll take that song that's "in your head" and make it into a reality you'll be proud of!
I teach and help people how to write songs at all levels. Whether you are a beginner, or more advanced and need new ideas to draw from. There is an endless reservoir of ideas and concepts to help you to create any kind of music imaginable.
I've been studying songwriting for over 20 years and I've professionally released several albums. I am grateful to have had my music licensed by Starbucks, NBC, The CW network, NikeWomen.com, and MTV. Whether you've never written a song before or are just in need of growth and guidance with your existing body of work, we'll work together to expand your songwriting skill set and repertoire.
Composing music has two main approaches, composing with knowledge of music and composing using the learned ability of improvisation.
Most composers use some level of both when writing, and it is necessary to practice both as a composer.
This involves learning at least basic music theory and the basics of how to play an instrument or sing.
If you already play and can improvise on an instrument you're already part of the way, as well as if you already know a bit of theory.
I can teach you all you need to know about music theory from basic intervals, chords, and scales, to complex microtonal tuning systems and complete analysis of any style and any music. From positional analysis, roman numeral, Schenkerian analysis, and others which help one understand from a theoretical perspective how music we enjoy works.
Alongside ear training, sight-singing and dictation, these skills will give you everything you need to compose from the theoretical perspective.
