Handwritten Music


Do you have things to say and want to learn to express them musically and poetically in song?
Have you been told you have a way with words?
Have you been struggling to complete songs you’ve started?
Do you need guidance for how to begin the songwriting process?
Would you appreciate having some experienced ears listen to your work and give you some constructive suggestions for how to develop your musical and lyrical ideas more fully?

Our skilled composers can guide students in the art of classical composition, orchestration, arranging, and manual & digital notation.
We offer private instruction and occasional classes and workshops, throughout the year.
Study melody, harmony, voice leading and lyric writing and take your composing to a higher level.
