Friendly and experienced songwriter with Songwriting MA (Distinction) offering lessons for all experience levels and genres.

Methodology

As a writer and educator I am primarily focussed on lyrical craft and the creative process. My time at ICMP endowed me with a wealth of tools and methods to sharpen the technical craft of a song to maximise its potential and I learned how to harness the creative process in the most conducive ways to bring the best out of any given songwriter.

I'm a big believer in constantly writing and sharing so I set weekly briefs to encourage you to write in new ways and then give detailed and constructive feedback that will help you grow. I know from experience that sharing new songs can be unnerving so I take a lot of care helping people overcome this hurdle.

Solo sessions are catered towards your individual needs to help you achieve personal goals: whether this be helping you overcome periods of block, write more engaging lyrics, structure exciting chord progressions, find fresher rhymes, or establish your artistic voice/sound. Weekly briefs will challenge you to become the unique writer you want to be.

Group sessions focus on a weekly theme that help students sharpen specific areas of their writing (eg. rhyme, imagery, structure, chord theory, melodies, etc) and have A&R style group feedback sessions in which students can play their work to the group and get instant feedback from their peers on how they can develop.

Outside of classes, I'm open to discuss songs, technique, career goals, co-writing, learning resources or whatever else will help you develop as a songwriter.

Experience

I'm a professional songwriter with seven years writing experience and countless co-writes in the tank. As a writer, I'm primarily concerned by the lyric and craft side of writing but, as often as not, also compose musical elements.

My specialities are in folk, Americana, pop/rock, and country but am also experienced in R&B, soul, rap, and indie-rock.

I've recently finished a Songwriting Masters' at ICMP in London, for which I received a Distinction, and am currently co-writing with a diverse range of artists for a number of professional projects.

In my Major Repertoire Project at the end of the course, I studied the roles played by the co-writer in writing sessions and this gave me a great insight into the collaborative process and equipped me to be a better rounded collaborator.

In 2017 I completed my BA (Hons) in English and American Studies which gave me a solid foundation for lyric writing and my time as an editor on the student magazine gave me a sharp eye for song editing.
