Welcome to Songwriters Playground

I help you bring your creative songwriting to life with my innovative book Songwriters Playground. I also run amazing workshops for large organizations to help unleash creativity and help with team building. Is your songwriting career stuck? I can help with professional consulting in all aspects of the music industry. I love helping songwriters with my expert critiques of their work. I can give you my personal analysis in writing and for a small additional charge we can have an interactive discussion about your song via Skype.

I'm passionate about what I do and I promise my passion is contagioous!
"One of the best tools we've ever seen for unblocking musical and lyrical creativity."
