My name is Steve and I will teach songwriters at any level. Having a degree in songwriting myself, I have the transferrable skills necessary to truly get the best out of my students.
My techniques would begin with analysing some notable examples of phenomenal writing (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Frank Ocean, Sting) and really dissect why it is so well regarded.
I will then begin to analyse how songs are structured and the differing structures you can have. All before starting writing to best asses the level a student is at and to make them realise the universal similarities that most songs posses.
If you are needing any help with writing your own song or wanting to start something new I will cater to all of your needs. We can dissect any part of writing be it melody, rhythm, structure or my personal favourite, lyricism.
As a teacher I feel the best way to get a student in a productive mood is to let them really take the lead on the writing. I will suggest some changes that will keep them focused on the message and structure. I will then produce the song with the student and can offer production lessons (if the student desires it).
I am a songwriting degree holder and musician. I have been writing and producing for varying artists for the last 2 years. I've been lead singer and writer of bands for 13years with extensive live experience.
I feel that music, especially songwriting is the purest art form one can create. To translate emotion into relatable form is an priceless skill, one I wish to help spread.
