As an award-winning singer/songwriter myself, I am here to help you take your own thoughts and emotions and turn them into works of art. In our lessons, we will focus on learning the different types of song structure, accessing your creative brain, and using both words and melody to fully express the emotion or story you're wanting to convey. We will also learn how to make a polished demo, create lead sheets for musicians to play your songs, and how to envision the production of your song. I am so excited to start this wonderful journey with you!
About Ellysa R.

Hello! My name is Ellysa and I am so excited to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have loved helping my students realize their potential, gain confidence, and find their own voice. I have been trained in the LAMDA system, as well as attending Interlochen Arts Academy conservatory. I'm an energetic and empathetic person; my strong perceptive skills allow me to adapt to each of my student's individual needs. While we'll definitely cover the technical aspects of what you're learning, my teaching is very much rooted in who you are and letting your own voice out, whether it be through singing, songwriting, acting, or playing an instrument. I can't wait to start this journey with you!

I have only had one lesson with her but she is amazing. She has already gotten me exploring and learning new things that I haven’t even learned while trying to obtain my degree. Ellysa has a lot of insight about the industry that I appreciate and I am very excited to continue working on my artistry with her.

Fun times- I've only had my first lesson so it's hard to review Ellysa accurately but I'm looking forward to learning from her.
