Nicholas S.

3 Songwriting lessons

Sometimes you meet somebody and it just clicks. I had been trying to find a songwriting coach for weeks. I wanted to find someone who could teach me how to take my ideas and my musical abilities and make actual compete songs. I had lined up a few sessions with several different songwriting coaches but I cancelled them all after my first session with Chloe. Chloe has a very laid back yet professional teaching style that makes you feel comfortable and never judged.
Rebecca D.

1 Songwriting lesson

Gamal helped me learn techniques to songwriting. I am new to making music in general so we started with the basics to songwriting. He was prepared and explained concepts well to where it was easy to understand. It helps that he is passionate about it and he helped me to get in the flow of songwriting with ease. Definitely looking forward to future sessions with him.
Christine W.

50 Songwriting lessons

He also tries to understand what I’m really passionate about and what my strengths are so I could find colleges that can possibly give me scholarship. He was also very helpful in developing my singing, Songwriting and music theory to a college level. He also offered career advise and showed me different paths. I highly recommend jimmy for anybody who wants to begin studying music seriously. He challenged me and helped me grow into an artist.
