Songwriting and composition lessons for children and adults, with a focus on pop, folk, rock, jazz and other contemporary styles. You don't need to be an experienced musician to learn to write songs, just have a desire to express yourself.

Lessons are taught by professional musicians and music teachers Erica Bramham and Adam Spiegl. Erica and Adam hold Honours Degrees in jazz and contemporary music from the Victorian College of the Arts and are highly experienced composers, performers and music teachers.

Composition and songwriting can be taught standalone or incorporated into vocal or instrumental lessons and focuses on:

  • melody and chord progressions

  • writing engaging lyrics

  • concepts such as song form, genre, contrast, tension and release, rhyme and phrasing

  • overcoming writer's block, techniques for generating song ideas and composition exercises

  • notating music and creating lead sheets for other musicians to play

Lessons are taught online using Zoom video conferencing.
