Harriet’s Video of the Day

Raves, Rants, Reviews

“So enjoying your CD. I love the way you write and deliver a song. What a gift. Thank you so much for being in the world to tell us these stories through song.” — Nita Whitaker LaFontaine

“Your music and songwriting have inspired me to become the person I am today.” — Alexzandra, Stockholm, Sweden

“Just wanted to say I enjoyed your CD concert immensely. Your tender, sensitive and spontaneous rendition of all your material was a remarkable example of your rare talents. A real treat for me.” — Dana White

“Lada and I wish to Congratulate you on the Awesome Lyrics for the StarKey Song! We were overcome with JOY hearing you sing the special words you chose. You’re truly Wonderful, Harriet!” — Matthew and Lada

“In Yiddish theatre, which is referenced in the play we do together, audience members were told they could get their money back if they didn’t both laugh and cry at the performance. No one would have asked for their money back after your CD release concert.” — David Proval

“The listener is allowed into deeply personal-universal places and leaves with greater understandings of him/her-self as well as you and the subjects you write about. You really love people, and that's very cool!” — Leslie Welles

“Harriet’s a brilliant comedian who introduces each of her songs with a hilarious, bracingly honest back story that gives the people in the dark a little insight on how great songs are created.” — Julie Davis

“It’s really brilliant how you came up with these [songwriting] steps. Just a great, GREAT, idea.” — Denise Rosier

“Even stronger than my desire to write songs is my gratitude to be able to work on it at this point in my life. You have kept me going and are the best teacher I ever had or will have.” — Marian Weiner

“I learned that my most powerful songs truly do come from my real life experiences and that when I share my feelings, in song, I am able to heal myself.” — Cynthia Land

Dan Jablons speaks about my songwriting steps


New 10-week songwriting workshop begins! Thursday, June 16, noon to 3 PST

Dan Jablons Headshot

I just finished another song in Harriet Schock's class, and I had a realization that I wanted to share. I've been writing songs for many years, but now that I apply the steps learned in her class, there is a dramatic difference in my writing, and it's this: my lyric writing has risen to a point where the lyrics are actually poetic and lyrical (imagine that), not just words on a page.

The steps have enabled me to find more beautiful ways to say what I want to say. They have a better visual quality, scan better (so I can sing them better), and contain beautiful imagery with better word choices than ever before. As such, I get more compliments on my lyrics now than I ever have, and I can honestly say that I am truly proud of what I am writing.

On top of that, my melody choices have become better, mostly because I am not just finding good chords and melodies to sing, but because I'm PROPERLY ALIGNING the improved lyrics with my music to truly deliver the message. This has taken my writing from "pretty good" to "really evocative" and I recommend Harriet's class to anyone who wants to take their songwriting to the next level (and what songwriter doesn't want to do that?)!

This Thursday class is a special group of songwriters all using my step-by-step method. Noon to 3PM West Coast time. Call me at 213 840-6732 to reserve a space or get more info.

The Harriet Schock Story

Thanks to the many great friends and fans of Harriet Schock, in 2020 we successfully raised the initial funds for the film production. This was PHASE 1 and it financed Pre-Production & Beginning Photography.

Production was delayed due to the lockdowns but then, near the end of 2021, we were able to film, with multiple high-quality film cameras, in a beautiful concert venue, Harriet and her band performing a wide selection of Harriet’s songs. This performance material will serve as a visual and musical bedrock that will be used throughout the film.

Read the update below and click/tap the video to see the new trailer with excerpts from the 2021 concert and details about Phase 2 funding.
