One on one private songwriting lessons from a professional musician. For music students at any skill level. Bring your guitar, ukulele, piano, etc. Finish that song you've been working on and set new goals. One time and/or ongoing sessions.

I have written and recorded 5 albums as a professional singer-songwriter. In fact, I'm working on an album right now and writing songs constantly.

Because I love working with kids, my teaching experience (both formal and informal) is quite extensive. I have worked with ages 3-18, whether through my ten-plus years as a guitar instructor or my ten years in public education. I have formally and informally studied creativity, whether in my master's degree or the numerous nonfiction books I read about it.

Homework Offered
Homework in this class will be optional. For example, students will be encouraged to work on songs/melodies and write lyrics. Students will also be encouraged to keep a daily journal.
Assessments Offered
Informal assessment will be used throughout the songwriting instruction, editing sessions, and sharing. Adjustments will be made based on the student's needs. These adjustments include decisions around goal-setting, advice offered, and optional next steps. Most of all, I hope students feel comfortable and encouraged as songwriters.
Grades Offered
I encourage students to attend with some way to take notes (tablet, notebook, or whatever's their style).
