  • Songwriter Tip:

    Sometimes just getting out of the house and doing something you haven’t done in a long time (or never done) can open up the doors to musical inspiration. Open up a photo album, read old letters, visit family, friends, go do an activity, do anything but music. Read poetry, watch ballet, go to see a movie, walk around in a museum, look at oil paintings and sculptures as these are all different forms of art. Music is an art form too. Sometimes other forms of art can be inspiring to the musician. Come back, after your mind has been freed, and try to write a song about it.
