Songwriters workshop (songs ideas, lyrics, chords)

Are you musical trained, confident enough with your instrument but finding frustrating coming up with your own compositions? Finding difficult to get idea for a new song, need suggestions for your lyrics, or just a simple understanding on a song structure?

This class is based in songwriting and musical performance. I will provide any tips and suggestion to get a song done and don't get stuck between lyrics or chords. I'll be focussing in songwriting structure across different genre, pop, folk, blues, jazz.

I will be also structuring the classes giving home exercise working on new sketches every week across those different genres, and diverse themes.

Once the song will be completed I'll give any sort of advice on how to perform a song to an audience. How to structure a show and organise you band if you have one.

During the lesson I'll be using piano as main instrument and singing. I am also confident in guitar if required.

Songwriting and performance for me are quite related. At the same time I can also give advice and teach just one or the other if required.

Please follow below more information about myself.

Guitar lessons in Crouch End / Highgate / north London
I teach every little thing a guitarist should know, like the correct hand techniques, reading music, and music theory (in a very practical way). And can teach all styles, all guitars and all levels. But most of all, my biggest passion and mission in life is to help you to be more creative and expressive. And the guitar is the best way to achieve it, of course. I encourage all my students to write music, improvise, and find their own path, voice, and sound on the guitar. Creating music is not only really fun, but it’s also the most valuable way to learn guitar and understand music on a deeper level. My current guitar students range from complete beginners to advanced guitarists. They want to embrace the joy of music in their lives and unlock their creative potential by improvising, songwriting, and music composing. Some of them work towards their diplomas and concerts, and I’m happy to support them along the journey and get great results. I believe that there are many paths to learning guitar, and I accommodate and design a plan according to your individual goals and needs. In the literature, it’s called “student-led”, and I am firmly convinced that this is the most suitable way to learn.

Creative piano and music theory lessons, for all ages and abilities.
I'm a piano and music theory teacher with over thirty years experience, and a performing singer, pianist, and songwriter. My lessons are very much about what my pupils want to learn, so I'm making sure I pick the right music to make the lesson fun and rewarding. It can be Classical music, Pop, a bit of Jazz, Brazilian music, World music, or any other interesting musical language. I teach piano, theory and harmony, ear and rhythm training, general history of music, with a creative approach. My lessons can include songwriting, sing and play practice, listening/analysing practice. My aim is to provide each pupil with the specific tools they need to enjoy playing music. My background is classical piano, but as a professional musician I have approached music also from different angles. As a teacher I enjoy a creative and open approach, any interesting musical language is welcome in the lesson. I make sure I pick the right music to meet the pupil's interests and tastes, and I integrate classical music both as a precious technique tool, and as a great territory to explore.
