Lyric Evaluations & Songwriting Consultations

Time permits only a few Songwriter Consultations and song evaluations.

But I really do enjoy helping songwriters to take a look at their work, and recognize the flaws in their thinking process that somehow keep good ideas from becoming great songs.

There are definitely tips and tricks that a successful writer learns along the way. I try to impart some of them to those who are willing to listen.

Contact Pamela

Contact me for a Lyric Evaluation & Songwriting Consultation and I will will happily respond
