Choose universal subjects and instill them with personal meaning, color, detail, and life.    

Expand a subject idea to its fullest potential.  ­­

Build a song structure that carries and communicates your story to its fullest advantage.

Develop lyric expression with attention to robust language, easy elocution, and sensual connectivity.

Learn to employ songwriting filters to streamline the lyrics: (prepositions, pronouns, red herrings, clichés)

Create songs with purpose, intention, reason, and goals.

Harness your songs to showcase your individual performance talents.

Facilitate school and community songwriting projects by scaffolding skill sets and offering models.

Determine what, how and when to ‘borrow’ from other artists to increase the value of your lyrics.

Gather stimulating and relevant information you’ll need to create a personalized song for private clients or public events.

Write, re-write, free write, assemble, disassemble, reassemble and create memorable and imaginative songs that people want to listen to!

Improve your songs with expert coaching

Contact Martin directly to discuss songwriting feedback/coaching. We'll use a combination of email and Skype to move forward quickly. Send song lyrics/recordings to Martin for preview, then Skype for feedback and suggestions. 

Vocal Coach - private or group

Martin makes singing easy and fun.

He leads singing activities for body and voice and helps even shy folks sing out.

He shares insights on 'How' to sing well for people who think they can't and leads voices to learn through experience. He'll begin with easy entry games and before you know it, you're singing full body and soul. 

Contact Martin for private or group lessons. Rates vary by the situation, and we can negotiate.

EVERYONE deserves to SING!
