    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

The ‘focus’ of your song is solid, and therefore, easy to understand which ‘draws the listener in’ to your song. Drawing the listener into your song is very important, and making the song easy to follow is a large part of drawing them in.
