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.

Composition lessons are taught by professional musicians and music teachers Erica Bramham, Adam Spiegl and Nathan Liow. Song and lyric writing lessons are taught by Erica Bramham. All three teachers 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 from Erica's Bentleigh home studio, close to Bentleigh train station and Centre Road shops with plenty of free parking nearby.
