Music Writing Techniques

This publication is written with the assumption that you know what a subject and verb is and you understand sentence structure for proper grammar and punctuation. My intent with this publication is to help you use your basic knowledge to structure content in the same manner used by musicians by using music writing techniques.

Learn to Write Like Musicians

Tales have been told about songwriters who sat at a bar with a pen and a napkin and wrote a song that hit the top of the charts, selling millions of records on the first day it was released.

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Many songwriters begin their work either sitting at a keyboard or picking up a guitar, working out a melodic line and coming up with the chord structure from there. Happily for those among us who are less than skilled at musical instruments, there is an alternative. Try coming up with a bass and drum groove using any one of a number of cheap and abundant software. Many times these simple little ‘grooves’ can kick us in the butt, get us up and out of our chairs, and get the creative juices flowing.
