Songwriting, Voice & Guitar Lessons

Have you always wanted to learn to write songs, sing, or play guitar? Or are you looking to improve your skills? If this sounds like you, or someone you know, you have come to the right place! Please note: All lessons are virtual in 2020 until it is safe to resume in-person lessons.

Songwriting Lessons

Do you want to write songs or improve your songwriting skills? With over a decade of experience, songwriting is my primary focus. In our first lesson I will gage an understanding of your skill level, from there we will discuss song form, melody, lyric writing, and songwriting industry practices and techniques. You will learn to write your own songs and receive feedback. Students up to the challenge will be assigned weekly writing practices, reading, and songwriting prompts!

Voice Lessons

Have you always wanted to be a singer? Join me for voice lessons! Together we will work on technical exercises and song repertoire. In our first lesson we will talk about your current skill level and your lesson goals. We will expand your vocal abilities by working on the songs that you know and love!

Guitar Lessons

Do you want to learn guitar? Or expand your current skill level? In our first lesson we will discuss your incoming guitar level and your lesson goals. Together we will work on songs, scales, chords, strumming and picking patterns, and sight reading, depending on your areas of interest. Both acoustic and electric guitar lessons are available. Students must have access to their own guitar.

Virtual Lessons

Please note: All lessons are virtual in 2020 until it is safe to resume in-person lessons.
Students must have access to high-speed internet as well as a device (preferably a laptop or computer) for video lessons. Lessons will be held on Zoom. FaceTime and Skype are also options.

Teaching Philosophy

I work with students to understand their current skill level and their individual goals. From there, I craft a lesson plan tailored to each student's specific needs. I teach with different methods, I explain things orally, I bring in worksheets, diagrams and assignments. I care to discover what my students are interested in, we work on their favourite songs, in their favourite genres and towards their personal goals. People vary, so do their learning styles, and so should the teacher’s approach.
