Teaching in songwriting
Louise teaches songwriting for beginners, and the songwriting lessons includes:
- Lyric exercises

- Deep connection and understanding of song meaning
- Understanding of lyrics and melody in song structure
- Musical expression
- Guidance on creation of produced track/accompaniment (if student only wants to sing melody and lyrics accompaniment can be arranged upon request)
Louise teaches mainly pop and musical theatre styles in vocals and songwriting.
Louise will always ask before the lesson for any specific goals or focus points the student would like to work towards, and ask them to prepare a song . For Louise it is important that the students feel the lessons are planned around what they want to learn, and what makes them excited as this makes for a better learning environment. In the first lesson you should expect:
- An introductory chat ensuring both student and teacher understand how to move forward effectively
- Fun and freeing warm ups to break the ice
- Basic breathing exercises and scales
- To work through a song the student has prepared
Louise has a lot of experience teaching beginners and children. The student should come with a song already prepared and a notebook to write down homework for the next lesson. Louise believes singing is fun and is available to anyone at any age or skill level.
