With over a hundred song credits under my belt and decades of honing my craft, I've learned a thing or two about how to make a song. Whether you're a beginner, a veteran, or somewhere in between, my feedback can help you take your writing to the next level and send you away with a really strong song.
Having studied with legendary songwriters Steve Earle, Peter Case, and Steve Seskin, I can help with the nuts and bolts of lyric writing, melody, and harmony, as well as the mysterious art of courting inspiration. My feedback is precisely tuned to where you're at in your craft.
I specialize in rock, folk, country, and pop, with a deep background in the singer-songwriter tradition going back to Dylan, the Beatles, and beyond.
I'm available for one-on-one coaching at $35/hr. in my studio in Sonoma, and will occasionally host a 6-week songwriting class. I also offer classes at local schools. Call or text me at 415-577-8764 for more info or to set up an appointment.
