To learn the art of songwriting one must first understand who they are and what they want to say. Exploring that which holds meaning for us as individuals while speaking to the universal truths we all experience as humans in this world. There is a magic we must find within, that will guide us in our creations. My goal as your teacher is to show you my process, share what speaks to me and teach you every trick I know to writing a great song. Each student will possess skills and talents unique and important to the class and must be willing to share as well as be open to the ways of others. It is from each other during our weekly sessions; we will uncover the music within you. Together we will be honest and supportive. Together we will challenge ourselves to find the beauty in our words and stories; each week should inspire the work to follow once leaving the classroom.
