How to Write a Song?

We know the answer! Unravel the secrets behind creative songwriting and catchy hits. This programme will definitely help you to write better songs. Songwriting encompasses a process of creativity thinking : get the initial inspiration to pen down a new song, to the writing it out into a musical score, which includes doing up the arrangement and recording of the song.

Our instructor will guide you through the fundamentals of pop songwriting – introducing you to various chords, melodies, music arrangements, accompaniment playing patterns, various techniques and approaches to create your next hit. Also, get exclusive insights and tips on how to get your song out there!

Though there is no particular rules in songwriting, the two main components of songwriting are: composing the melody and writing the lyrics. This course will help you in just that! Here are the things you’ll learn by the end of the course: Essential melodic forms, reading and writing solfege score, develop melodic construction, getting inspirations and melodic appreciation.
