Songwriting Classes and Music Lessons in Milton, Massachusetts

The greatest thing happened last Wednesday.

I’ve been looking for a way to plug into my new community here in Milton, Massachusetts. My kids are loving their schools, and my husband is enjoying being an Assistant Professor at UMass Boston ( This is a lovely town, and we’ve been wanting to put down some roots here. I loved teaching songwriting and building creative communities while living in Switzerland, so I wondered if there might be a market for something like that here in New England. So, on Wednesday morning, I posted a question on Milton Neighbors, a local community group on Facebook:

“Hello, Neighbors!” I said. “I’m looking for some advice…” I told everyone that I went to Belmont University School of Music, that I wrote songs in Nashville, that I was signed to BMG Music Publishing, that I love to teach songwriting and commercial voice, too. I asked if they thought there might be any interest in such a thing here in our town.

Well, this place is truly amazing, for in just a few hours, there were loads of comments from parents wanting lessons and classes for their creative kids, and more folks wanting lessons and classes for their creative selves.  I am so excited…in just a few days, neighbors, we are doing this!

If you’re in the Milton area and you’re interested in a class, email me here.  Tell me about yourself, or your child, and what classes/private lessons interest you: Silly Songwriting for Kids, Songwriting like Taylor Swift, How to Write Top 40 Songs, Developing Your Own Musical Style, Pop Vocal Styles…these are some of the private lessons and classes.  Feel free to suggest your own ideas.  This is going to be great!
