The solar Songwriting experience
This package takes the student through every step of the songwriting journey: from creating, through recording, and finally to releasing their music.
Step 1 - Creation
Through guided lessons, we will mentor and assist with lyric writing, melody and harmony, band arrangements, and overall tone. This step uses the process of songwriting as a vehicle for the student to develop musicality and technique.
Step 2 - Recording
Next, we will bring that music to life by recording with a team of professional and talented musicians at an industry level studio. The skills and experience of being in this environment and working with professionals will elevate your creations, and is invaluable to your music education journey.
Step 3 - Releasing
Once we have recorded, mixed, and mastered your music, we will guide you on how to register your music, and officially release it on music streaming services. We can't wait to help you bring your music to the world's ears!
Bring your music to life
"I’ve never enjoyed learning an instrument (or any skill) as much as I have with Nicholas. He is a true master of music and his teaching methods are exceptionally fun and effective. He has an ability to teach anyone and any level, age or learning style. And what is truly special is that he completes the whole package with with deep kindness, relatability and patience."
"He is a very patient teacher who cares for his students. He adapts his
teaching and approach to meet his students’ learning styles."
"Nicholas has not only imparted skills and understanding through his lessons, but he has brought joy back to learning guitar for me. I would highly recommend Nicholas to anyone wanting to
learn to an instrument or music theory."
Bring joy into your practice
Solar Music Academy is the result of over a decade worth of music education. In my experience, it became very clear that creating a model for teaching that emphasized a holistic approach to music practice was of paramount importance. Things like theory, technique, and composition need to be taught cohesively and not in isolation. Creating an environment that fostered passion and curiosity in our students would allow for a greater retention and understanding of the building blocks of music.
"The spirit of teaching is in the art of assisted discovery."
We strongly believe in acting as guides in your music journey. We focus on fostering understanding and personable relationships with our students to create personalized and fun lessons that allow for growth in whatever path our students want to follow.
