Songwriting Lessons

Buck studies songwriting at Greenwich Arts Academy
(ages 
seven and up
)

Overview

If you've always wanted to create your own music (in any style), we have the teachers who can help you achieve your dream. Our songwriting and composition tutors focus on both popular and art music. Songwriting students work on rhythm, melody, and harmony, as well as song structure and more. They also spend time on arranging their tunes -- that is, figuring our how the band (or other ensemble) is actually going to create the sounds they hear in their heads.

This can be the beginning of a life-long passion, so parents... be warned! :-)

What's the #1 reason to take songwriting lessons at the Academy?

When you enroll at the Academy, we'll begin with an evaluation to determine initially what your strengths and challenges are. We work with each individual or parent to craft a lesson plan that fits the student's unique needs and favorite type of music. Whether you're writing for your own band, a seven year old writing their first tune, or a fifty year old returning to songwriting after many years, our friendly, dedicated teachers will share their passion for creating original music and help you set goals to achieve your musical aspirations.

What styles of songwriting do you teach?

Our voice teachers focus on both popular and art music. If you've always wanted to be a better rock, pop, country, jazz, folk, gospel, musical theater or R&B writer, we have the right songwriting teachers for you.

How qualified are GAA's songwriting instructors?

Our songwriting lessons are taught by instructors who have had their original works performed around the world. They received their education from prestigious institutions such as University of California at Berkeley, Berklee College of Music, Music For The Media, and University of California at Los Angeles. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of the US and Europe and have over 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience.

What will I learn from songwriting lessons at the Academy?

Songwriting students work on rhythm, melody, and harmony, as well as song structure and more. They also spend time on arranging their tunes -- that is, figuring our how the band (or other ensemble) is actually going to create the sounds they hear in their heads.

Do I have to know how to read (and write) music?

Not necessarily. Note-reading isn't a required skill for most pop styles; it's often a requirement for musical theater and art music. If it would really benefit you to learn to read music, we'll be glad to teach you!

Do I need any special equipment?

No, just your passion and a pencil!

Can I get my work performed?

Absolutely! If you can't sing or play it yourself, we'll find another student who can. Every Fall and Spring, our students mount a production to showcase their hard work. Unlike most of our competitors, we only charge a small participation fee per student, and we never make parents pay for tickets. Admission is free, so you can invite all your family and friends.
