Songwriting Lessons

I have placed over 200 songs on TV and in film. Mos notably, The Descendants w/George Clooney, which won an Oscar. We write what we know - but I'll teach you how to structure songs within the style you love. Your story+universal songwriting guidelines+music theory.

Voice Lessons

Singing is talking with music added - your body KNOWS how to sing. I will teach you how to recognize notes & rhythms, use your breath to support sounds, develop riffs and keep your voice healthy.

Overview

I sing because that is what I was made to do - I'm guessing that is why you sing too :) My mother was a USO/Big Band singer so I started at a very young age and was in my first professional show at 15. I currently sing Rockabilly in my own band (a combination of Jazz/Swing and Rock/Country) but studied opera "bel canto" technique - because you need to learn the rules so you can break them. I use a yoga breathing technique because singing is just talking and breathing with a little music added, no? It should come easily to you - your body knows how to do it. I'll just teach you how to refine your technique, stretch your range and find YOUR voice. I've taught at School of Rock since 2007, and was featured in Music Connection's "Hot For Teaching" (one of 6 teachers profiled across the U.S.) as well as Fox News (National). I attended music conservatory in New York and was in the original Tony-winning cast of "Into the Woods," toured the world singing at Carnegie Hall, toured the East Coast w/Grammy-winner Folk Rock singer Michelle Shocked, and then permanently moved to LA to write/record Rock & Roll for TV/Film. I have over 200 songs in movies & shows you watch regularly. So - we can work on mic technique, stage presence, songwriting, or just SINGING.
