"Generally, we work on two of the three for each lesson: singing, songwriting, or guitar. But, in the new year we are going to begin a study on music theory and Maddy plans on introducing me to music production software so that I can put music to the songs I have written. Maddy has a plan for every lesson, but she is completely adaptable; focusing in on what I want to hit for that lesson.
To date, we have worked on five songs: Let It Go (from Frozen), Wake Me Up (by Aloe Blacc), Bleeding Love (by Leona Lewis), Fighter (by Christina Aguilera), and Dude (Looks Like a Lady) (by Aerosmith). Without Maddy I never would have imagined that I could sing a Christina Aguilera or Steven Tyler song. Maddy's ability to pull the best out of my voice is nothing short of incredible. Pair that with her belief in me and Maddy has given me the greatest gift: confidence in my artistry.
I have also written north of 10 original songs. Maddy has reviewed every song and provided substantive feedback so that I communicate the message and sentiment I envisioned in the most effective way possible. Maddy and I are also working on guitar. Maddy uses materials on Dropbox to teach me basic notes and chords and completes each guitar lesson with demonstrations and material to practice.
I am so grateful Maddy and I have crossed paths. It's been a life-changing experience in the best possible way. Not to mention, Maddy is an incredibly talented musician in her own right. She has a beautiful voice and is straight up vicious on the guitar. Her knowledge, ear, and artistry inspire me. I can't wait to see where Maddy takes me in this journey. For now though, I am so thankful we are on it. I can't recommend Maddy highly enough."
