Prolific songwriter and Bastille Collaborator offering hands on song-writing lessons and techniques

Methodology

My songwriting classes will show you how to unlock your creative potential. I aim to give you a thorough understanding of song-structure, lyrical concepts, melody, harmony and all the elements that make up memorable songs. I will show you HOW to take a simple idea and develop it into something you are proud of.

Experience

I am a prolific song writer with well over 140 songs in my demo catalogue. I have co-written with Wayne Hector (Westlife), Dan Smith ( Bastille), Andrew Jackson ( Due Lipa), Owen Cutts ( Stormzy) and many more. I understand how to craft relatable, heartfelt and honest songs in any genre. I can teach you how to marry up catchy melody with gripping lyrics. Most importantly I will help you tap into your creativity.

Kianja has been an incredible teacher. After each lesson, I come away feeling I've learned so much. She is kind and patient, but pushes you to achieve your best and reach your full potential. Can't recommend enough!

Kianja is a great teacher. Very experienced, and at the same time very easy-going and encouraging. With her guidance I've gained a good fundamental understanding of how to sing, and have noticed improvements in my singing voice and technique since starting lessons with her. Highly recommended!
