Songwriting & Production Coaching


Get the skills you need to create the music you've always dreamed of!

Songwriting Coaching

We’ll take a blank page and turn it into at least one finished song - written by you! I’ll teach you multiple surefire techniques that pros use!

✓ how to get started

 how to find inspiration

 identifying hooks and workable riffs

 lyric and melody construction, themes, arrangement, and style

Plus tips and tricks for turning all of that into completed works that you, or anyone else, can perform and/or record.

By the end, you’ll have not only at least one finished song (or more if time permits!) but all the tools you need to write easily whenever and wherever you want - and never get stuck again!


Recording and Music Production Coaching

It's time to set your creativity free!

Recording and producing your own music is not as hard as you think. If you’re tired of paying or always relying on others to make the magic happen, this is for you! Here's what you can learn with me:

✓ what equipment you actually need and how to use it most effectively and efficiently

basics of pro recording and how to get great sounding results, no matter what space you’re recording in

basic production, choosing instruments, drums, layering, effects, basic mixing

 learn how they all fit together to create a finished whole

And if you’ve already got the basics down, I can help you take your work to the next level!

I’ll be there to walk you through it, and by the end, you’ll have not only a song that YOU recorded, produced and mixed - but the skills to do it again and again, anytime you like!


Hi, I'm Marcus!

Your Songwriting and Music Production Coach

As a professional songwriter for more than 20 years, I’ve written, co-written, and produced hundreds of songs. I’ve recorded everywhere, from noisy apartments to world-class studios, including Prince’s Paisley Park in Minneapolis and Ocean Way in Los Angeles. Since 2014, I’ve been signed to a songwriting and co-publishing deal with Concord Music, home to Pink Floyd, Daft Punk, Phil Collins, Imagine Dragons, The 1975, Mark Ronson, Billie Holiday, and many others. I’ve had record deals with Razor & Tie (Universal) and Metro Records (Warner Music) and been sponsored by Gibson Guitars. My music is administered by Concord and Universal Music Group. It has been featured in Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, and on the homepages of Apple Music, Amazon, and Guitar World among others.

Working alongside Grammy-winning songwriters and producers, I've not only honed my craft but charted on the Billboard Hot 100 and licensed dozens of songs to commercials, TV shows, and films. I firmly believe that a great song speaks for itself, no matter the style or genre of music. I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned so you can skip years of trial and error and create your best music yet!
