Paul is a very nice and understanding guy who only got to give our child an introductory lesson.

I'm glad I found Paul on takelessons.com. I was looking for someone to help me take my decent but untrained voice to the next level. Paul is committed to helping me advance toward my goal of being a singer-songwriter. In addition to the exercises we work on to strengthen my voice and gain control, he has given me some strategies to track my progress and improve more quickly. He also encourages me to take risks and go out and sing karaoke. He is caring and authentic and genuinely invested in my growth, and I am becoming a better musician because of it. Thank you, Paul!!

I studied Songwriting at Berklee College of Music. I worked with Pat Pattison at Berklee, learning his techniques and studying his practices, such as object writing. In this class, we will explore the importance of word choice, the understanding of the story we want to tell, and developing the perfect music accompaniment.

About Olivia

I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat. Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied

Private Songwriting Teacher

I am first and foremost a singer/songwriter. I can help you discover all the possible song structures and song parts, sure, I have studied it deeply and earned a songwriting certificate from UCLA. But mostly I can help you dig deeper and find what you really want to talk about, what the story you want to talk about really is. By doing that I will then be able to show you different technical ways to tell that story, to build the melody that will help tell that story and also help you with chord progressions and music harmony.

About Richard

Wonderful teacher! My two girls love him so much. We have great results. Highly recommend him!
Andrew W.
By teaching how to train your hands to just learn to play instead of mountains of memorizing, Richard is able to teach absolute beginners to play complex scales, melodies and songs in no time (if you put the practice in, of course!).

Many piano teachers love the complexity of theory, reading music, and heaps of complicated techniques. Richard makes it easy and simple, focusing on kinesthetic memory--getting your hands trained with muscle memory rather than thinking about the scale, chord, etc.

The theory he does teach is all colour-based and highly intuitive. No more counting lines on a stave of sheet music!

While his background is stronger in jazz and blues, he was able to give me a TON of useful compositional techniques for rock and classical as well.

I went from a non piano player to proficient in about 6 weeks. 15 weeks in, I'm a better piano player than one of my lifelong friends. And all without the pain in the ^%$@ of reading sheet music.

Thank you Richard, and to anyone considering him, I would strongly recommend!
Vicky
Richard is very sweet and patient. We worked at lightning speed within my understanding. Looking forward to the rest of our lessons.

"Fawn is an incredible songwriter and coach! She has turned my mediocre songs into hits and I have placed several on television shows since she helped me make them better. Every lesson I learn something new and feel empowered and like I'm finally headed in the right direction. You will learn so much about yourself when you take lessons with her. She is a true blessing."

"Hannah's awesome! I contacted her mainly for songwriting feedback but also for guidance while applying and auditioning for BYU's commercial music program. She always went above and beyond in assisting me from songwriting, to voice lessons, to guidance with production and recording and navigating the local music scene. Hannah knows what she is talking about in both vocal and music techniques, as well as the business side of music. And even more important, she truly loves what she does and has a natural ability for teaching in a way that will help you grow immensely! If you are even slightly on the fence about taking lessons from her, don't be--you won't be disappointed!"

"I was really nervous about my performance of an original pop-song for my concert coming up in school. Things weren't working out with my previous teacher and that's when I found Taylor! She guided me through pairing the music with my lyrics, but in a way that really made me feel confident in what I was making! Taylor is super fun and easy to work with and when we weren't writing... we were cracking dad jokes! XD I performed the song at my school concert and I couldn't have been happier with the result! I definitely recommend Taylor and want to work with her soon again :3"

"My voice has significantly improved after lessons with Hannah. My tone and pitch have also improved dramatically. If you are interested in writing songs, Hannah is also a great teacher for that. I have written many songs since taking lessons from her. You don't even have to leave your home because Hannah can teach skype lessons. Many people don't like Skype lessons because they seem impersonal. I recommend trying a free lesson. You will see that Hannah makes it seem like she's there in person. I live in the country so this has been very convenient. I love her teaching style. She has empowered me to create many beautiful songs. She is very well qualified and knows what she's talking about."

"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!
