Music Composition/Songwriting

School of Performing Arts
Pricing and Policies


Students interested in composing, writing, arranging, or creating music would benefit from private composition/songwriting lessons. Whether you know much about music or very little, we can take you from where you are and move you forward. Instruction will be tailored to the student’s interests and goals, but, in all cases, we will help students understand the building blocks of music while allowing them to unleash their creativity in a positive and encouraging way. God made us to be creative, so we want to give you the tools to express yourself and bless others with your music.
