I will help you write songs that are not just special but also commercial, in all different musical genres: rock, pop, r&b, rap, classical, country, etc. You will learn all aspects of songwriting, including generating and developing great lyrics music and tracks, the difference between writing for yourself as an artist and writing for someone else, and how to make collaborations work.
Once you have the great song, you need to record and make it sound great! I will help you produce your demo in a full-service professional recording studio in Los Angeles in a beautiful and relaxed environment. You will benefit from the wide range of possible production approaches which I offer, from the simplest piano/vocal demo to the most elaborate full orchestral production. Take advantage of working with someone who can play, arrange, engineer and produce, and will focus on making your vocals as beautiful and emotional as possible.
I consult on a wide range of music and music business-related subjects. You will receive guidance and expert advice regarding how to become an artist or songwriter, get a record deal, publish music, produce songs, put together a band and prepare for live performances, and much more.
I bring 30 years of experience in writing and producing songs for the stars to my speaking engagements. You will get the benefits of that experience in a variety of areas, some of which I will demonstrate in real time onstage and in which you will be invited to participate and “sing along”: writing a great and commercial song, producing records and demos – including the how-to’s of that puzzling first demo, breaking into and understanding the music business, etc. And through my “war stories” about the many great artists I’ve worked with over the years, you will learn the life lessons I have taken with me and apply to everything I do.
