About Us | The Songwriting Academy

Who are we?

The Songwriting Academy is a collection of some of the best-known, highly regarded music professionals in the industry. Founded by Martin Sutton and Simon Coulson in 2014, the academy has since grown to incorporate over 40 of the finest music industry experts, and has helped thousands of budding musicians, songwriters, producers and managers across the globe.

Every single member of our faculty is dedicated to making your career progress. That’s what makes us different from your average music workshop or university course. Our mentors offer you constant help to find you opportunities that you’d miss if you were stuck studying in a stuffy university classroom somewhere.

We’ve already put hundreds of our students into the industry, helping them achieve publishing and record deals, as well as setting up collaborations between songwriters and artists around the world.

Our supportive community also works together to help each other achieve more in their music careers. If somebody has a contact that could help you or if you need some extra advice outside of our courses, you’re likely to find it in our community. We’ve worked hard to cultivate this welcoming and genuine group into something that benefits everybody.
