  • Songwriter Tip:

    As a songwriter, we need to all understand that there is no ‘bad’ or ‘good’ music. There are only songs people can and can’t relate to. So don’t feel bad if your music doesn’t reach out to everyone. There isn’t any one style of music that can. The trick is that you need to find people who already enjoy the style of music you write. From there, you can more accurately judge how well your music communicates. When writing music, try not to appeal to every single type of listener. Write the music in the style you love to make, and write it for those people.
