A Skype or FaceTime mentoring session could cover any aspect of songcraft you wish to discuss – for example an independent constructive evaluation of your songs with guidance related to Song Structure, Melody, Lyric, Harmony and Production if applicable.
Friends and family may not always be the best judges of your songs and so with 40 years experience and having taught songcraft at London Songwriters for 7 years, including comprehensive week-long residential courses, I can give an independent, constructive view of your songs. I can offer suggestions based on proven songcraft techniques that have stood the test of time, whilst also allowing scope for innovation too!
