  • Do you have great ideas floating around in your head (and heart) but don't know how to put them together to make a song? 
  • Do you have your own studio and wish that you could have access to someone who works in the TV & Film industry and write to specific sync opportunities?

Meet Sarah, my 17 year old student who has been studying Songwriting with me for nearly 8 months now.   This song was written in our songwriting masterclass together.   She is an excellent student who has a lovely voice and vision about what she wants to sing about.    In addition to being Sarah's teacher, my time included overseeing the production of the song with the producer and going in the studio to assist her with vocal phrasing.   

 Nicolas Laget owner of The Sweet Spot Studio, arranged and produced.  I'm sure after listening you will agree that he is a five-star producer.


"Since connecting with Donna, my daughter has gained a lot of detailed, valuable information about songwriting and is growing as a music artist before my eyes. Donna has dedicated her time, support, and used her expertise in the music industry, to guide and nurture her talents in music.

Finding someone with a music education who is also successfully working in the music industry has been a golden opportunity. My daughter looks forward to her time with Donna and we are sincerely grateful for the knowledge and opportunities she shares with her students".

Songwriting Exercise (masterclass example)

Let's do this!

Write about your love. Before you turn your heart into poetry and music, you will want to express yourself without the constraints of meter and rhyme. To do this, describe the person you love, how they make you feel, and how it feels to be together.


  • You can describe their physical attributes, including how they look, how they move, how they love, how they dance—anything that describes them physically.

  • Also describe them emotionally. Are they strong, courageous, and forthright, or perhaps quiet and contemplative. Anything that describes who they are and their personality traits is good to write down.

  • Describe the "us" of your relationship. Talk about the things you do, or don't do. Talk about how you got together, and what your hopes are for the future. Even if you're not actually together with the object of your love, you can imagine what it would be like if you were together.
