Structure Great Content by Using Music Writing Techniques

July 26th, 2019 by

Music Writing Techniques

This publication is written with the assumption that you know what a subject and verb is and you understand sentence structure for proper grammar and punctuation. My intent with this publication is to help you use your basic knowledge to structure content in the same manner used by musicians by using music writing techniques.

Learn to Write Like Musicians

Tales have been told about songwriters who sat at a bar with a pen and a napkin and wrote a song that hit the top of the charts, selling millions of records on the first day it was released. We want to believe the artist was struck with pure luck when that happens. The truth is, a lot of structure goes into writing a song.

I will be sharing concepts like, Intro, Verse, Chorus, Collision, Bridge, Coda, and more to help you write content using musical structure that, when applied to writing can strengthen and enhance your writing experience. My hope is that I am able to help you produce content that is stronger and flows more like a song than mere words on a page.

I hope that I am able to help you save time when structuring the beginning, middle, and end of your publication by using these simple techniques. (more…)

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Whichever way you choose, writing from a lyric or from a melodic line, once you’ve set the tempo and determined how many lyric lines will be in each segment, you’ve begun to lock yourself into the form. If it takes one minute to get through a verse and chorus, and you’re looking for a three-minute song, your options have already shrunk. You should also consider the amount of lyric needed to tell the story.
