    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    When you’re experiencing a strong emotion is actually the ideal time to write. It’s also, for many of us, the most difficult. If you can’t write because your feelings are too strong, remember the emotions. Draw these emotions at a later date and use them as your inspiration. The result will be a much more emotional and passionate song. It also takes much less time and allows one to capture their emotional energy into words.
