    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Never ever feel you have to be better than or equal to or as good as anybody else is. Your job is to be yourself, that’s it. No one else can do this job. No one else can be who you are, feel what you feel, say what you say. Therefore, even if you think it has been said, you haven’t expressed it in your own way, and no one else can express ‘it’ like you can, so don’t be afraid to add your voice to the chorus. What you are doing is adding to the world, not subtracting.
