"awakening your hidden talents"
Some say you have to have an aptitude for it and have special skills but that's not true. I know songwriter's that have made millions with their songs that didn't graduate high school (not that I'm promoting that, mind you). I also know songwriter's that have made millions that are graduates of Juliard or Berkley, doesn't matter. Some of our best can't play an instrument but have written beautiful, time tested melodies, point is, this is a learned craft and anyone can do it, if they have the desire to learn and succeed!!!
Having an aptitude towards something simply means you have a strong desire to succeed at something and that you really enjoy it....we don't really start off life with very many skills, you know...they're developed thru the years with help from others. I'm sure many of you had teachers in school that inspired a love for doing something. And later you pursued that and found some success at it. But others would say, you had an aptitude for it, but in reality a teacher inspired that so called aptitude and it was something you enjoyed doing and you followed through...
Learn the craft of songwriting
How to get started * how to structure a song * what's a hook? * different kinds of hooks? * how to storyboard a song * how to go from words on a page to a melodic, rhythm filled song * how to create rhythm in lyrics * how to build emotion in your lyrics * emotion in your melody * emotion with chords * how to take a simple idea and turn it into something unique * what if you don't feel you can sing * how to find answers to questions * how to find hidden songs? * how to cure writer's block * and more......
If you're from the area, we work together "one on one" in my private studio
If you're a beginner, I teach you how to write songs from scratch, even if you've never written a song but always wanted to or you just have the desire
If you've got songs started, I'll help you take what you've got and craft it to a finished song
If you write lyrics or poems, I'll help you craft those into finished songs
Don't play an instrument? Doesn't matter, I work with both....
Want to learn an instrument? I have a very simple method to learn guitar and keyboards
We work in my private studio, where both the instruments and Professional recording equipment are there to not only help craft your songs but take them to completed demos or even Master "Radio Ready" Productions.
We'll also discuss some of your options. How do you make money as a songwriter? As a Lyricist? What's a Co-Writer? What are your options, legal and otherwise? How does the publishing thing work? What's ASCAP, BMI and all that stuff? What about copyright? How do I protect myself?
Once we begin, we'll establish communication be it phone, email, etc. and I try to always be available to assist with questions, difficulties learning new material, difficulty with exercises, etc. and even song tracks we're working on can be sent to you for rehearsal.
