Learn How To Write The Songs You’d Like To Hear
-Make your songs stand out-even if you’ve never written a song before.
-Feel confident about how to start and finish songs and get out of being ‘stuck’
-Learn a set of techniques to charge your creativity when it comes to choosing chords, creating melodies and writing lyrics – even if you think you have no imagination or natural ability.
Have you ever been lifted, comforted or inspired by a song or a performance? Wouldn’t you like to understand why it had that effect on you and how you can write music that could connect like that with other people?
Sometimes you find a shred of melody or a chord progression you like, but then get stuck and have no idea how to complete the song or even where to look for ideas. There are so many elements to a successful song, even one that is apparently simple, that it’s hard to know where to begin creating melodies, rhythms, lyrics, form and harmony that creates an engaging, interesting yet coherent piece. In one context, a technique might be perfect – but in another it could be boring or jarring.
I once wrote a chord progression I loved, but it took me three years to write the other section of the song and complete it, because I had no clue of how to organise the possibilities or where to look for compatible, complementary musical choices.
