  • Songwriter Tip:

    Here’s a tip on the final stage of the songwriting process, the demo. Keep the songs that you select for your presentation on the demo short. Keep the intro as short as you can and get to the first verse quickly. Aim at keeping the songs to a three or four minute length. While there are no ‘hard and fast’ rules in terms of the length of songs, try this. Listen to your radio with a stopwatch in your hands and time the songs that you hear. This will give you a yardstick for how long a finished, radio-ready song should be. Remember that the songs on your demo will be neither finished nor radio ready. Subsequently, they will be shorter.
