    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Here’s a tip to help you get started on your action plan. Set a deadline for mailing out a demo of your songs. The point of this is more to ‘put yourself out there’, as it were than to actually sell or license the first song that you ever wrote. Ask for input and feedback on your efforts. Remember that before you mail anything out, you will need to do the research about the guidelines, submission requirements, and etiquette.
