What instrument(s) do you use to write your music?

I use my fledgling piano skills to painstakingly figure out how to write down what I hear in my head. I'm getting the hang.

What comes easier for you - words or music?

I usually hear them in tandem. I get a phrase that seems to lend itself to a melody right off and then develops. Of course that gets changed in the writing process, but that's how it starts.

Do you imagine yourself or someone else performing your songs?

Both. Myself, especially locally, but since I have no designs on being any kind of famous singer, ultimately, other people.

Are you interested in collaboration or finding a songwriting partner?

I like working it out on my own. But then, I've never collaborated before. I imagine it's like finding the "right" relationship, yes?

What areas of your music experience are you wanting to improve? e.g. songwriting, marketing, networking, recording, airplay, gigs, etc.

Chord writing over melody, definitely. It's an art in itself.


Hi, all. I am a for-fun singer and songwriter, learning as I go. Day job? Yup. I am at or Come visit.
