5 Useful Techniques to Unleash Creativity
Every creative person knows the pain of writer’s block, when they just can’t write a single word or note of music. Songwriters can find it particularly difficult, when their muse seems to have gone on vacation! So they wait and wait for her to return … but it seems as though she never will. But there’s good news for them: creativity is a skill that you can train yourself to acquire. Here’s you will learn 5 Useful Techniques to Unleash Creativity:

1) Bring different ideas together

Often we try to be too logical and only connect things that make sense. So you would write about falling in love with a person, because that’s what you do in real life. But what about falling in love with a flower, the sky, or your favorite meal? It’s the popular management-speak of “thinking outside the box”; moving away from the obvious connections can give you some amazing ideas and produce compelling lyrics.

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Publishers are your promotional vehicles for songs and instrumental themes if you are not retaining and exploiting your own copyrights. In some instances they will nurture and develop singer-songwriter-artistes to help them gain a record deal. They promote and exploit songs and instrumentals that are signed to them under an assignment of rights publishing contract. Publishers also register the copyrights as assigned to their catalogues with the relevant royalty collection organizations in the countries in which they operate. Music publishers take a percentage of the money/royalties that may be earned and these percentages are set out in the terms and conditions of the publishing contract entered into with the songwriter/composer.
