For six years The Songwriting Academy has been hosting live seminars, workshops, masterclasses and conferences with the best in the business, teaching songwriters, artists, lyricists, musicians and producers how to make a career from doing what they love to do most.
Now, for the the first time ever, I’m making that exclusive content available for you to enjoy for a small monthly subscription. Whatever your journey in music is, we’ve walked that path and we’re ready to help you do the same.
Hear from Trevor Horn how he produced “Relax” for Frankie Goes To Hollywood, let Paul Statham walk you through the writing process that helped him sell 30,000,000 records with Dido, or get the story behind “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ from Rob Davis. No other organisation in the world can offer you this quality of content, delivered by some of the biggest names in the business.
When you become a Gold Card Member, I’ll also include FIVE comprehensive online training courses filmed direct to camera and designed to guide you, lesson by lesson, through the art of hit songwriting, professional production and music business know-how.
I want to make things as affordable as possible for anyone who loves songwriting, so although the total value of these masterclasses is £5,995.00 I’m going to offer all of it to you for a simple, small monthly subscription, with no minimum term so you can opt out at any point.
When you feel like you’ve learnt enough with The Songwriting Academy, you can simply cancel the subscription and pay no more.
Well, you could get only 12 weeks of training at a college like Berklee for $1500, learning from just one lecturer…or a year at a UK university would cost you £9,000.
But we’re confident you’d rather learn from the most successful music faculty in the world, that has sold OVER three quarters of a BILLION records…and pay just a fraction of the price you’d pay anywhere else.
Ready to become a Gold Card Member and learn the best kept music industry secrets?
From the moment you begin our online courses I know you’re going to start seeing the improvements in your songwriting, and after a year you won’t believe how far you’ve come, and how much you know.

We’ve created an exclusive area in our community where you can get feedback on your songs and productions, and share tips and techniques with other Gold Card Members who are driven and determined, just like you. Surround yourself with positive thinkers and people who DO, and you will all rise together.

I wanted to let you know that already from your masterclass last night, I feel like I am in the right place – this is exactly the kind of support I needed right now at this stage in my career. Furthermore, having taken other academic courses in songwriting, I really love and value your particular approach, mindset and the content of your teaching from your professional experience, it really is compressing “decades into days”.
Thanks Martin, this is awesome!
Wow, wow, wow— Thank you so much for the stellar Week One webinar, Martin. My thoughts are just racing right now. And I am a bit nervous and freaked out at the moment… ha ha. I haven’t been active making music in over 25 years. But the assignment is just the kick in the back-side that I need right now to actually get me creating again. I’m the master ninja of procrastination– so this is really the push to get me moving. Thank you so much for the push to get going, Martin. Much gratitude
Brilliant first session Martin. Very insightful and learnt so much! A lot of great techniques to take away from that webinar, I will be using the 7 step planner immediately. Looking forward to the assignment and the next 49 weeks.
I am sure you have hundreds of emails but I just wanted to thank you most sincerely for being so generous with your time, giving us such a good webinar and sharing your love of songwriting. It was great, useful and enjoyable.
I just wanted to thank both of you for your time, song critique and suggestions. I found the call with Angela extremely informative and helpful. Martin your analysis of my tune was spot on! I will pair my skills together with your suggestions and come up with a plan to proceed forward. Thanks again!
Thank you for sharing your insights and revelations! It’s truly a beautiful gift to have people willing to share what they have learned.
