Songwriting

"Some songs capture a moment so well, you can smell summer at 60 miles an hour or feel the cold steering wheel as you’re driving away from someone you never thought you’d say goodbye to or you could still taste the gum in your mouth before your first kiss.  It’s like there’s three and a half minutes for every moment that you really felt alive"

, Worth repeating.

Sometimes we open our mouths and the words fall out, our fingers touch the chords and the song writes itself.  Amid the chaos of life there are moments of clarity that produce songs.  .....Of course, most of the time we are learning, working, searching, listening, reading, watching, responding, questioning, crafting.  We do the work.  We stay open and humble, curious and hopeful.  

Whether you want to be a songwriter or not, writing your own songs can really help you find your voice.  

I love the process of helping clients find the words inside them that are desperately trying to come out.  Usually a great deal of a song can be written within one session (it's 100% yours, I'm just helping tease it out of your subconscious).  

Equally I love unpicking a favourite track and looking at its craft.  So you can learn to do the same thing.  Even if you don’t play or read or know anything about music I can show you and we can take a first step on that magic making journey.  The achievements of my clients in just an hour blows my mind every hour or every day.

You can start with just one note.
