I offer songwriting mentoring sessions, both private and group. My expertise includes: live performing, the music industry, making demos, navigating the recording process, finding your voice, setting goals, and the craft of songwriting. I can tailor classes to fit individual needs, create a fun, safe and positive atmosphere for stretching boundaries, and help to make some dreams come true!
Sessions can be scheduled when I am in your town or via Skype.
“As a teacher, Sally could be described as humble, patient, inquisitive, and probing. She has the ability to make people feel comfortable. She is a valuable mentor and provides constructive feedback, a great sounding board. ”
….Ed Pramuk – Student, Music In The Mountains, Colorado.
“Besides being a fantastic artist and songwriter Sally Barris has really got a talent for teaching. My students were both inspired and nailed by her clinic where she combined singing her songs with talking about the art of songwriting, giving useful tools and hopeful insights from her professional experience.
I can highly recommend her!”
…..Eva Hillered – Kulturama, Stockholm, Sweden
“Sally’s mentoring sessions leave me inspired and motivated, and stretch me to grow as a writer and instrumentalist. She has helped me define for myself why it is I must write, helped free me from fears, given me the coolest chord substitutions that take my songs to new heights, and offered lyric adjustments that were spot-on. She assists in every aspect of being a performer, too.”
….Noelle Wainwright Warner- Student, Nashville Tn.
“Sally Barris is a wonderful mentor; however, I have found that she is also a life coach.
She understands what it is like to be on this journey as a songwriter and is able to help you take the necessary steps to get to the next level. I highly recommend meeting with Sally no matter where you are on your journey!”
