Fed up of open mic nights? Thought so. This course will show you how to go a step beyond the local pub and into the charts. We’ll show you what you need to do to make your songs irresistible to the labels and who you need to contact when you’re done.
If you want to become a professional songwriter for major label artists, we can show you how. We’ve already written hits that were performed by artists such as Beyonce, Celine Dion, Kylie Minogue and many more.
Already written a hit or two? We find that there’s still lots to learn from other musicians, even beginners, which is why we welcome other professional writers into the courses we host. Polish up your skills and find out how the industry is moving on.
Producers have one of the most important roles in the music industry. They need to know the information that’s important to a successful track. This course gives you the tools you need to catch the mistakes that can make or break a song, so you can boost a track to new heights.
Music shouldn’t always be used purely to make money and we understand that, sometimes, you just want to play music for the love of it. If you’re in it for the creative output alone, this course will help you get more from your songs.
Thank you so much for this weekend, really was such a fantastic experience. I’ve learnt so much that I wasn’t able to sleep all last night thinking about it.
Such a great day enjoyed meeting everyone and learned so much!
Had a great and informative mentoring session with Mark Cawley, nice guy, had some interesting left of field ideas for me to try. Thanks Mark
