Thankfully, there are a few questions you can ask yourself beforehand to make your decision-making process easier.

#1) What kind of music do I like

First determine what kind of music you enjoy and what kind of music you want to create. That is the first step to figuring out what instrument you should learn to play.

  • Songwriter Tip:

    ‘As you write, ask yourself three important questions: l. have I heard this before? 2. if so, can I make it a little different? 3. if not, can I write something else? I recommend you ask yourself these three questions every day, several times a day, as you write. No point in finishing a whole song and meticulously producing it only to find you’ve borrowed it from someone else’s work. You have a fingerprint as a artist. Your songs should reflect that. Don’t xerox what other writers have already done. You’re too good for that. Submitted by Molly-Ann Leikin of Songwriting Consultants, Ltd.’
