What I Offer

One-to-One

Songwriting is a huge topic, and has many elements. You may want to work on your lyric writing, your composing skills, or both. We can work systematically through these; learn from studying successful songs; use songwriting textbooks; and analyse and help you work on and rewrite¬† your own songs.

Singer-songwriters often work on both their singing and their songwriting with me. I have 35 years of experience as a professional singer, teacher, and have studied song and songwriting all this time. I am also a songwriter myself, and have performed, recorded and published my songs. More about singing lessons …

Groups

Learning in a group has many benefits. We can learn from the challenges that other songwriters have, as well as the solutions they find. We can collaborate on songwriting exercises and games. We can learn from watching other students being ‘masterclassed’,¬† and having their songs workshopped. Others in the group can also support us, and give valuable feedback on our own songs and processes. A group is a great place to find potential songwriting partners and collaborators, and musicians who might play or sing our songs.

I have just started the Oxford Songwriters Meetup, and we’ll have our first meeting soon. Read more about songwriting groups …
