    Music & Creativity 1-on-1

    Two sessions to connect about songwriting, guitar, singing, poetry, or anything else related to the creative process. We can meet in person, cross paths while I'm on tour, or arrange a Skype session. We will have an initial 1-hour session, followed by a 30 minute follow up session to check-in and see where you are on your journey.

    Wondering how to start writing songs? Are you a songwriter wanting feedback? Wanting to learn or improve your skills at guitar? This is YOUR time, and it will be an honor to meet you wherever you are on your creative path.

    DOUBLE THE GIVING
    ** Feeling giving, but don't want this reward for yourself? Message me after backing, and we'll team up and pass this 1-on-1 on to an under-privileged music student at Honokaʻa High and Intermediate School, where my love of music was nurtured. I'll write you a letter introducing the student and what we covered, and you'll still get your digital download with the added fuzzy feelings of giving back. **
