Does this ever happen to you? You have a musical part or a chord progression you like, but you can't figure out where to go next. A private lesson can not only help you solve the riddle of THIS song, it can equip you with tools and principles to tackle the ones to come. Private lessons in Music Theory or Musicianship can explore any and all aspects of melody, harmony, rhythm, phrasing, hook-writing, notation, scoring, arranging, etc. Your teacher not only has an intimate understanding of the concepts, he or she uses them each day as a working songwriter. Get feedback on your songs and ideas for how to improve them--while building a deeper musical understanding for the songs to come.
