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 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.
I encourage students to attend with some way to take notes (tablet, notebook, or whatever's their style).
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.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
