Music is the one language that all of us can speak. Whether you have explored an instrument before or not, you were born into a musical universe and have innate musical abilities. As a student of the J3 Music Studios mentoring program you enter into a world of creative possibilities. Whatever you hear in your heart, you will be given the tools to bring it into the world.
Using music as a tool for self-expression, I will help you find a deeper connection to yourself and the world around you.

In this workshop we will listen to, and analyze, some of the most unique vocalists in music history. We will then explore our own natural singing voices and explore ways to stay true to our sound and style.

SONGWRITING on Guitar or piano:
July 14 – August 4, 2021 / 7:15 – 8:30pm / $125
Take your guitar or piano playing to the next level this summer by exploring different music styles and learning to discover your unique sound. We will listen to, and analyze, music across different genres. We will explore aspects of song structure, chord progression, rhythm, melody and lyrics.
I can help you find inspiration, piece together an original song, fine tune the arrangements, and create a professional recording. For those who have already made headway on that, you can go a step further. Let’s get you out to play live in your area, record your music in a professional studio, hire a band, and learn how to market yourself as an independent artist online.
Voice, Guitar, keyboard skills
For the beginner to intermediate player and/or vocalist we always start by creating a set of attainable goals, YOUR goals for YOUR music. As your music mentor, it’s my job to guide you along the way as you make strides toward accomplishing those goals. During our time together I will encourage you to connect to your body, breath, and heart in order to more fully trust your musical “voice” and develop self-confidence on the instrument of your choice.
