Would you like to learn how to write your own songs?
Do you need some feedback to improve your existing songs?
Are you experiencing 'writer's block' in songwriting?
Do you struggle with constructing
words for your music, or music for your words?

I possess a unique combination of
training, skills and experience in the areas of
lyric and

This Is Not Right lyrics
a song written by ET (pupil)
arranged, engineered and produced by Monica Max West

'What is unique about Max is not only
does she have a vast wealth of
knowledge and experience
in classical music, pop/modern music
and songwriting technique,
her training as a psychotherapist supports pupils
to go beyond their barriers, in a powerful way.'

- ET (pupil)
