I go over the process of how to create from scratch based on original theme. Most songwriters have a theme or motif that needs to be elaborated upon. Once that theme or motif is explored I'll show you how to place it and come up with surrounding themes that make up the song. These themes when elaborated upon will be the structre of the song that is labeled ""Intro", "Verse", "Chorus", "Bridge", "Outro"

I only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.

First lesson. Marc was great
Chris
I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

Great teacher for my 8yr old daughter. He is patient and explains things I'm a way that gets through to my kid. Highly recommended!
Bella
Phenomenal teacher! Rob simplifies advance techniques and organizes your lesson based on your personal goals. My lessons have been very informative but still always fun! I’ve improved significantly since our lessons began and have received guidance on how to make the most of my practice time on my own as well.

During this quarantine, having my lessons virtually is such a light during these challenging times, and they’re just as enjoyable as in person. Rob really is easygoing and has a great sense of humor!

Excellent teacher! Highly recommend! Feel like I’m going to learn so much and improve greatly!

I started writing songs at age 7. I recorded my first song at age 16. I use theory and chord progressions with my instrumental students to help develop their own style sometimes by only adding suggestions. I teach a rock camp in the summertime where kids age 7-15 come out and learn to write original music and perform it on stage in only a week.

My students learn creative strategies for writing original music, based on my studies and many years of experience. Even students without a solid musical background will learn fundamentals that will help them to create songs in a short time. We also work on how to brainstorm lyrics and revise and refine. As we progress, we can also learn about skills like writing for a band, transcribing, recording, and self-production.
