About
I'm a retired teacher and love to create songs. I've collaborated with several writers and always marveled at the process and the product. I lean toward pop, jazz, folk, and children's music, but am willing to try anything! I live on Long Island and look forward to meeting a co-writer from anywhere in the world. Currently, I write personalized songs for very sick children through the Songs of Love Foundation.

Hi Marla. I am thinking that our genres are so different that we would not be a good match at co-writing. What do you think. I don't know anything about your genres, except the country one, and I don't know if that means contemporary or traditional.
