Is it your story?

mine is:

I am a musician, but I make my living as a music teacher.

Sing my music but I learned mostly on saxophone…

Wrote and played heavy jazz, loud fast blues jazz… awesome fun, hard act to book

Had a singing teacher, but she fired me, well it was more “I’m not sure what to teach you” phone call….

Studied saxophone, now I usually play self taught guitar.

Master’s Degree in music composition, but now I write popular songs!


Still wasn’t sure if I could call myself a songwriter…

When did I become a songwriter?

About 6 years ago…I made a decision to write songs with lyrics and learn how to sing them.

I stopped thinking about the question and did something…

Then I wrote another song….

Then I was a songwriter…

I had to get writing before I could believe in myself!
