Brett and Elliott were very welcoming and receptive to me as an artist. Brett really tapped into finding the story that I need to tell through song. I liked learning about the elements of songwriting. He tied it all together and I can work with what I have to improve the song we made together. I'd totally recommend someone to try it out to learn more about song-writing.

This experience was amazing on several levels. We learned things about the music and songwriting business, about some writing skills and exercises, about getting concepts and emotions from head to paper. At the end of this fun and creative process we had a song that is deeply meaningful to us but that also speaks to anyone approaching their twilight years. Sounds kinda sad but it’s actually a pretty kick-ass song. Seems incredible that Brett can accomplish this in 3 hours, but he does, and gives you the tools to go home and do it again.

If you are considering a songwriting/recording experience while in Nashville, Brett is an wonderful host, teacher and songwriter. We thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with him for a few hours. He took the time and really got to know all of us before focusing in on teaching our daughter about his approach to songwriting and helping her complete a song she had been working on for a while. The final result was nothing short of fantastic. I definitely recommend this experience if you are serious about creating and recording your own song with a truly professional teacher and songwriter. It was well worth the time and money we spent.

They are extremely inviting and want you to get the most out of the session. I truly learned how to write a song that is meaningful and relatable, as well as is a way of healing and mediation. This experience gave me a different perspective when it comes to music and life. If you are looking to learn and/or write a song it is worth the experience. No matter the skill level you are they will make it tailored to you so that you can get the most out of it. If you like music and are looking for something fun to do in Nashville this is an amazing thing to do.

This experience is one that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. I purchased this as a surprise for my husband for our 15th anniversary and did not know what to expect. Brett is an amazing songwriter and together we went on a journey to explore our life stories, special moments and struggles. Through the entire process he listened intensely, capturing our emotions and feelings and intertwining them throughout the song. This was a very collaborative process for all of us. We left with not only an amazing masterpiece that we will cherish forever but also an understanding of how we can leverage the process he taught us to create our own songs in the future together. If you are looking for an amazing songwriting experience, I highly recommend engaging with Brett as he truly is inspirational!
