Got a secret desire to write a song? I'll help bring out the McCartney in you! I'll even teach you to play the guitar (but not left-handed!).

Methodology

Hi there! I'm a singer songwriter with over 40 years experience in popular music.
My desire is to help those who have a silent (until now) ambition to tell their story, or any story, in song, but don't know where to start.
I teach you how to turn the words you use to talk about something into a lyric, turn the way you emphasise those words into a rhythm and turn the way you feel about those words into a melody.
In addition, I show you how to use free or very inexpensive software to create your own band to play your new compositions, and simple recording techniques to make the best of your voice and instrumental abilities. And you'll be surprised how easy it is to absorb music theory without even realising it's happening.

Additionally I can teach guitar.

Background

I have trained as a teacher, AND.... I have written, performed and recorded many many songs and helped lots of people with theirs along the way. I've featured my own songs in places like The Royal Albert Hall and Wembley Arena, and arranged music in various styles for acts from a duo up to 12 piece with brass section. If you've got something you want to say I can take it from the germ of an idea to a full song and teach you to do the same as we go through the process.
