One-to-One Songwriting Mentoring Sessions

One-to-one songwriting mentoring from platinum selling music industry mentors

Professional music mentors dedicated to helping you progress your music career

Collaboration and networking are key in the music industry. The best way to get ahead is to work with those who have already made it. That’s why we developed these one-to-one sessions with our platinum record-selling mentors.

Our one-to-one sessions are held monthly and designed to help you develop your talents as a songwriter, regardless of your experience in the industry. As part of the platinum membership service, these sessions are the perfect place to show off your current career, as well as receive advice on how to improve it.

Whether it’s explanations of what makes a killer hook in a song or a simple step-by-step guide on how to navigate through a publishing deal safely, our mentors have the knowledge and first-hand experience to pass on to you.

We’re also dedicated to getting you where you want to be. All we ask in return is that you’re motivated, enthusiastic, and confident enough to believe you can make it!

What will I learn?

Since your music ability and goals will be different from the next songwriter, each session is personalised towards you. Our mentors all specialise in their own niche and this collaboration means that we can cover whatever issues that you might be facing in your career.

You’ll learn a variety of things from our one-to-one songwriting mentoring sessions, including:

  • Getting advice on writing better songs
  • Finding out how to make your music sound more professional
  • Discovering how to catch the eye of publishing and record companies
  • Understanding and properly marketing your talents
  • Ensuring the deals you make are beneficial for you
  • How to use current marketing opportunities to become more popular
