But what can you do to make that happen? How can you jump-start your career as a songwriter, even if you’re struggling to pay your bills?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    The sequencer is arguably one of the best compositional tools available to songwriters today. With a sequencer, it becomes possible to a) listen to all the different sections that you have created, b) move them all around and try the structure in a variety of different formats, and c) try the same format/section/structure with different sounds. This is a huge advantage to the songwriter who knows he/she has a good idea but has hit a block.
