Lesson Details

We provide songwriting lessons for students ages 8 and up, including songwriting lessons for adults.

Songwriting is becoming an increasingly popular field in the music industry, and it is never too early (or too late!) to learn the fundamentals of writing great songs. Our team of mentors will train students on song structure, lyrics, chords, melodies, and rhythm, and help them find their own voice and unique sound.

TIP: Songwriting lessons are even better paired with an additional instrument like Piano, Voice or Guitar.
