Rain has taught songwriting and music appreciation to musicians and music lovers since 2010. She's taking a break for awhile to work on A White Album.

These are the classes she teaches:

Mixtape Mondays (for everybody)

Kick your week off right with a half-hour of encouragement and fun! Mixtape Mondays begins with a quick check-in. Then Rain will DJ three songs on a weird/funny/unexpected theme, assign a series of writing prompts on that theme, and off you go into your week, invigorated, inspired, and supported.


How Songs Work (also for everyone, though no one believes me)

How do songs work? Whether you’re a tone-deaf music lover, an artist in another field who’d like some creative crop rotation, or a songwriter who wants a refresher of the basics, this is for you. You won’t be writing songs in this class. Instead, you’ll learn about rhythm and rhyme and you'll be tossing out terms like “bridge!” and “ABAB rhyme scheme” in a fun, no stress, small-group setting with killer music. 

Finish the Damn Song (this is the one for songwriters!)

For songwriters of any experience level who need some focused feedback on works-in-progress, as well as folks who are itching to write and need a kick start. We alternate assigned exercises with intensive discussion of writers’ individual work. It all culminates in a Zoom concert. 

Private Sessions

Rain is available for private creative coaching.
