Songwriting Course

Save £500 on the Singing & Songwriting Certificate!

Offer extended to 31st January 2017. Enter discount code on enrolment: SING500

Overview

Songwriting is the backbone of the music industry. In the Songwriting course you spend time in the studio with professional songwriters who have worked with artists such as Jamelia, Bob Marley, Warren G, Sugababes, All Saints and more. You'll learn how contemporary songs are put together and what makes them successful. If you want to write songs and make a living from your music, then it's essential that you have an understanding of music theory, composition, lyric-writing and arrangement techniques. We also look at the music industry and explore copyright, publishing and promotion. Practical exercises form an integral part of this course and students are expected to be able to play an instrument or have some experience in music production software such as Logic Pro or Ableton Live.
