Beyond Music Lessons

There are many instructors who can teach you how to play an instrument or sing.

There are few people that can teach you how to be an artist.

There are plenty of instructional videos on YouTube on how to use recording equipment.

There are fewer people who can coach you in using music to heal yourself and grow.

There are numerous classes and workshops on marketing your music.

There are very few people who teach how to get in touch with your creative self and write inspired, compelling music that makes people want to buy and listen to your songs.

If you (or your child) are ready to move beyond basic music instruction to the next level of artistry, Beyond Music Lessons are for you!

My Beyond Music Lessons are tailored to the needs of each student, and can include:

  • How to avoid writing overly formulaic, generic music when aiming for mass appeal
  • Teaching young children to trust their intuition and creative ideas while writing
  • Teaching assertiveness and boundaries while increasing self-expression
  • How to write lyrics that are emotive and even poetic without being overly flowery
  • How to listen for the lyrics that want to be in your song, and where to put them
  • How to create lyrical and catchy melodies for any style of track
  • How to write incredible sticky hooks and “ear worms”

However, I do offer energy work and sound therapy in single sessions if you:

  • Want a tune-up and a chance to relax, refresh and reset yourself
  • Are an artist or creative who has never experienced energy work and you are curious about the benefits
  • Feel drawn to me as an energy practitioner of a particular modality, or have worked with me in the past
  • Received your Reiki attunement from me and would like to have a session or refresher

If you would like to book a single session with me, please contact me to schedule your appointment!


Carisa Holmes has a beautiful gift of creating soulful music and lyrics that touch peoples souls. She provided workshops at our health and wellness center. Everyone loved it and can’t wait to have her back.”

If there’s any person I know who is dedicated to health and wellness across all scopes of life, it is this lady. She knows and she shares for the benefit of others. She’ll coach you well.

Carisa has a strong intuition and a gentle touch, super professional and comfortable to be around. To see her perform her music is mesmerizing and inspiring.

I would recommend Carisa to anyone who would want to expand their creativity. She will work hard to give you what you need to do so in all facets of creativity – music, art, writing, speaking, and much more.

Carisa is one of the most multi-talented human beings I have ever met – she can write bar none, she is an accomplished musician and singer, and she facilitates deep transformation within others through her healing and artistic work.

Carisa’s services are intuitive and personal. She makes a big difference in a small amount of time, I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family if they were feeling stuck in their creative projects!

Carisa, is that rare professional that has a work ethic that always exceeds your expectation. She is a most talented creative perfectionist that is quite the joy to work with.

Carisa is a talented and gifted performer. I have always enjoyed working with her and recommend contacting her if you are so inclined to pursue your creative interests.

I’ve had some of the most profound healing experiences while on the table with Carisa. I have witnessed others whom have worked with Carisa, children and adults, and it’s been amazing to see their transformation.

After our Reiki session, I feel much better physically. I had a nagging muscular problem in my levator scapulae that I could not make go away and it’s now gone! Thank you so much!

I have known Carisa for over 10 years her energy in her healing work is straight from the heart.

Carisa is well versed as a writer and thought provocateur! I would most assuredly recommend her to those of you seeking an authentic and spirited coach, great listener, and also a result oriented professional.

I’ve been working with Carisa Holmes for more than two years now. She has opened many doors for me to explore myself and my creativity. From songwriting to music theory and using my voice, to allow me to tap into my creativity without inhibition, and giving me more confidence in what I want to achieve as a musician.

Not only do Carisa’s methods work, it is empowering to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of how our bodies work. It’s amazing how little most people know about these things including those in the medical profession. Why treat the symptoms when you can find the root of the problem and build from there?

I highly recommend Carisa as a wellness coach, a creative arts or healing group facilitator, as a professional writer and a one-to-one soul healer.
