Imagine: You as a creator, not just a piece of creation.

 

We are meant to create, not just to observe creation. 

Have you had this experience?

You have a vision for a song or a record you want to make and each passing day that you spending listening to other peoples songs and records and not writing your own, the anxiety of inaction begins to build up and you start to doubt your place/vision as a songwriter and creative voice with important stories to tell in the first place?

I have created a special membership that cultivates a nurturing space for songwriters and creatives to write and release their own music from home (hi Omicron, we see you) and enrollment is now open. (Link in my bio)

If you are a creative, fearing the ephemeral disappearance of time and meaning in this third wave of a pandemic and searching for a nurturing place to learn to tell and share meaningful stories and music. This is for you.

I'm Ready For Support

It’s time to step into your power as a creative and put yourself at the center of your story long enough to tell your story. 

  • So many people benefit when you share your story authentically and excellently. 

  • Songs are a potent vehicle for self authoring
  • You deserve a beautiful, lush support system of like minded creatives to lift you up.

I consider it my mission to create a safe and encouraging space for songwriters to create and share their work and story. This memberships is exactly that!

  • Learn to generate authentic and moving lyrics quickly and consistently

  • Learn the editing skills and techniques you need to turn your half finished songs into polished completed tunes ready for stage/studio
  • Get insight into the structure and templates that your favorite songwriters use so you can use them too!

 

If you are a creative, fearing the ephemeral disappearance of time and meaning in this third wave of a pandemic and searching for a nurturing place to learn to tell and share meaningful stories and music. This is for you.

Hi, I'm Hope! And I've been in your shoes!

 

When I first started writing songs I spiraled a lot not understanding why my songs never felt finished, or performance/radio ready. I never felt my songs were ready to show anybody so I had a hard time building a community around me to help my songs get better and significantly grow in my craft. I said I was a songwriter but I never shared my songs...

It took me playing a lot of open mics and songwriter circles, finding songwriting communities, going to music school (3 music degrees later…), studying as an apprentice with master songmakers (including Prince’s engineer) to be the confident prolific songwriter I am today working with some of …. Musicians today.

I created the Songwriters’ Membership to build a supportive community for songwriters to learn their craft inside and out, have the tools and the safe space to tap into their authentic voice as musical storytellers and have excellent performance ready songs that they are proud of to show for it!

Together we are going to create ( in the songwriters membership I am going to teach you how to tap into your authentic voice as a songwriter, write and finish songs to be performance ready anytime, anywhere and feel confident sharing your work and collaborating with other creatives in the writing process.

What Our Alumni Have Said

 Get inspired… this could be you!

 

“it is definitely worth the investment in oneself. you are insanely gifted knowledgeable and amazing at working with individuals (and in the group)....meeting each person's needs and skills where they're at and exploring and pushing them to places beyond what they know they are capable of! and you are able to do it very quickly and easily! it's awe-inspiring!

“Before the Lab, I wasn't carving out time for my creativity and was for sure frustrated with myself because of that!

carving out the creative time for sure and being held accountable to the process and how it rolls...

that I was putting a lot of pressure on myself to be an idealized perfection that kept me from just doing things creative.


making space for real shifts of energy. realizing its much easier than I thought. doing it more often is just better.

Because of this course, I allow myself to write down my feelings and see them as much more valid. I’m listening more to my intuition and have cultivated a relationship with my inner child. In doing so I learned to use songwriting as a transformative exercise and just allowing myself to play has been huge.” 

- Janell, R

The Songwriters Lab is a solid investment and a great way to get yourself going to create your own music in a supportive environment!

Before the songwriters Lab I was lacking confidence that I could write a song and not knowing where to start (especially with lyrics)

The combination of the artist's way and having songwriting assignments gave me the suggestions and accountability I needed to experience musical creativity in a holistic way. For example, time for making art became several daily rituals that I look forward to rather than a series of dreaded tasks never to be completed. I feel like I am much more excited to work on songwriting and creating in general because of this class.

I have learned how to find my lyrics and grow songs from the seeds. I have also learned how to find my own style, which has been really rewarding. I learned a lot from watching others workshop their songs as well..."

- Brittany, L

Hope is a nurturing guide on the journey to your own creativity... This class allowed me to finally explore my own unique artistic voice. 

 

Hope is a nurturing guide on the journey to your own creativity. I’ve always studied music through a classical lens of recreating someone else’s sound or ideas, but this class allowed me to finally explore my own unique artistic voice. Songwriting is an amalgamous craft and Hope finds a way to gently ease you into exploring sound and trying new things. She teaches tools, exercises, and writing games to spark creation and gleans perspectives on practicing that encourages the student to continue forward in the process rather than to get discouraged in the fog. If you’re wanting to push your boundaries and get more connected to your creative self, Hope would be an excellent teacher.

Results from Happy Customers

 We’re so proud of our members!

"This course is the best investment that you can make for yourself, regardless of where you are at with your songwriting."

“The Lab helps to shift your mentality in a positive way, not only for your music, but for your life as well. I feel much more accomplished and steady with my creative endeavors after participating in the Songwriter Lab!

I have learned how to create a workflow for songwriting that works well for where my brain in at any given moment.

What's nice about the course is that you work off of everyone's strengths within the group and teach us all various different ways that we can utilize those strengths in areas we are not as strong in.

Having various types of exercises available for us to see what works best for us was very helpful.” 

- Skylar, C, Sound Engineer

"You go on a journey not only with songwriting technique and structure, but you work through the SELF work to really unlock your own creativity and artistic nature."

"You have nothing to lose and so much to gain by going through the Songwriter Lab. You go on a journey not only with songwriting technique and structure, but you work through the SELF work to really unlock your own creativity and artistic nature. You also get the support of Hope and a group of individuals in the same boat as you; it's a really great all-around package not just to help you to write some songs during the program, but to help you write going forward for as long as you wish to write and create.

With this course, I began to unlock my creativity and I am very  proud of that. I also came away with 3 different song babies and a new excitement for seeing what they will become... All while knowing I don't have to put all of the pressure on myself either.

- Courtney, J, Songwriter, Music Teacher

"The group sessions were supportive, genuine, and non-competitive. Most importantly, Hope made it easy to be authentic to myself, and find enjoyment in my process without judgement."

“The benefits of Hope’s Songwriting Lab are hard to put into words. She has an incredible amount of expertise, excellent teaching videos, and individualized help even in a group setting. But the thing that really sets Hope’s course apart is the environment she creates. The group sessions were supportive, genuine, and non-competitive. Most importantly, Hope made it easy to be authentic to myself, and find enjoyment in my process without judgement.”

- Dani Tanzella, Songwriter, Music Teacher, Human Rights Activist

Don't let your songs hide inside you

Songwriters are often sensitive, empathic people who feel more comfortable observing and contemplating than they do in the spotlight. But we need your songs and vision!

Often overwhelmed by the idea of showing their works in progress in competitive environments, it is important to cultivate encouraging communities that can offer your skills sets, feedback and pump you up when you fall off the songwriting wagon!

 “Apply!! What a potent practice to be accountable to a group in this way!”

“The process of writing songs was such multi-dimensional poetry -- it required such clarity in going deep with brevity. This approach has influenced the way I have approached so many other aspects of my life since then!

Through this course I learned that I want more lifetimes.

I found the songwriting to be such a profound and unique expression. I also am much more clear about the distinct parts of the writing process, from the destination writing to drafting the verses to drafting the music to clarifying the hook and chorus and then to the process of refining. I appreciated looking at each of those steps.” 

- Gabriel Thom Pasculli, Actor/Director, Theater Teacher and Creator



"I’ve given myself more opportunities to fuel myself creatively and learned new strategies to do so."

“If you put your energy into this course, you can learn a lot and accomplish a lot.”

Becky Chamberlin, Highschool student



Before the Lab I had trouble Getting started and allowing myself to work through “bad” writing...Now I allow myself to write down my feelings and see them as much more valid."

"Before the Lab I had trouble Getting started and allowing myself to work through “bad” writing. I was really wanting to finally create and cultivate my own sound

Now I allow myself to write down my feelings and see them as much more valid. I’m listening more to my intuition and have cultivated a relationship with my inner child.  In doing so I learned to use songwriting as a transformative exercise and just allowing myself to play has been huge.

This course taught me logistical ways to get creativity flowing and different perspectives on form and flow in song structure. I also learned to look more in-depth at lyrical content and how to vary the intention or feeling of a rhyme scheme. This course gave me great tools and opened a door to my creativity that I needed help unlocking.
