  • Songwriter Tip:

    Write down the subject of the song, the idea or the message you want to convey, and the story the song will tell. The subject of the song might be falling in love; the message might be that there is someone for everyone; the story might tell of a man and a woman that meet and fall madly in love with each other. This is a good time to write down the words to the chorus of the song. The chorus is a bridge or connection from one verse to the next. It must make sense to sing the words of the chorus in between the verses. From the chorus, you will also need to make-up a catchy title for your song.
