Everybody stands to gain something from this course. Fledgling writers and hardened musicians will find this course useful with the experience and guidance of multi-million record selling mentors. Even veteran songwriters who have written hits in past know that there is something new to learn from other musicians and songwriters, and this course is the perfect opportunity to meet them.
Should I bring a guitar to the course?
The lessons taught throughout the day are based on practical songwriting exercises, but they don’t require you to bring an instrument at all. Bring enthusiasm, an open mind and a desire to write better songs!
I can’t sing. Should I miss this course?
Not at all! Many extremely successful songwriters sing about as well as a pack of cats, but their ability to write killer hooks and stunning melodies has taken them extremely far in the industry. The key to songwriting is collaboration, so if you need a vocalist, you’ll find one!
Is this just for pop and chart music?
Absolutely not. We believe it’s essential that every songwriter maintains their artistic integrity so the techniques we teach can be used on all styles of songwriting and composition. We’ll give you incredible musical tips that will make your melodies stick in people’s minds whether your style is singer/songwriter, pop, folk, rock country and more. Our groundbreaking lyrical tuition will ensure you never get writer’s block and will show you how to say exactly what you want to say whilst ensuring everyone that hears your song is captivated by the message in it.
Although the Creating With Courage course will teach you how to give your songs a new and improved feel, our three-day songwriting bootcamp is the next step towards focusing on your music career as a whole. You’ll get a creative break away from the world to learn more detailed information about the industry and write new songs in collaboration with other writers and our professional mentors.
An enormous amount of information and tips to take away, digest and act upon!
