Become a better songwriter with expert help from The Songwriting Academy

A message from founder Martin Sutton

Do you want to be a better songwriter, or maybe want to know why your songs aren’t getting in the charts when others are? Do you have a catalogue of songs, but don’t know how to get them ‘out there’? If yes, read on, this is the course for you! If you don’t think there’s anything else you need to learn, please move on. We’re only looking for serious songwriters, artists and producers to be part of this group.

The most important thing I’ve discovered over the decades of being a hit songwriter is that we never can know enough about this beautiful craft. I never stop learning and it still gives me a massive buzz when I discover new techniques from other writers and producers. I know I can’t maintain chart success all on my own, and I know that neither can you.

Since starting The Songwriting Academy I’ve also realised that many people do not have the funds to pay for expensive University courses, and if they do, the course often falls short of the mark with an out of date syllabus, and an out of date tutor…

That’s why I’ve created this affordable course for dedicated songwriters anywhere in the world. I want to make this affordable so you can have success. Why? Because when you succeed so does The Songwriting Academy. I want to be able to say “That’s one of our students!” when you are storming the charts.

Count me in!

What I’ve done for you

To make this happen, I spoke to my buddies in the music business who are all still hugely successful, and asked them if they would be willing to share their knowledge and expertise with the next wave of hitmakers. And…I offered to pay them way more than pretty much any University or College in the world if they would! The prospect of getting to talk about what they love, AND being paid top dollar for the privilege is something they jumped at, and the course was born. They are ready and waiting for you.


When it came to pricing I had to fight for you! Colleagues all around me have been telling me I should make it way more expensive than it is, because of the quality of material and the calibre of the lecturers. I did my research and as an example looked at Berklee Online, charging around $1500 for a 12 week course covering just one subject. I’m sure there’s probably  something to be learnt from this and their other courses but only if you have that kind of money to throw around. If so, go check them out and see how they compare to us.

Despite what they told me, I have gone against everyone’s advice and decided to charge only £349.00 for the whole year.

That’s just £8 per week and this is what you’ll get:

Start improving your songwriting immediately

From week one you’ll 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. You’ll learn skills that will stay with you for the rest of your life in music, all for the price of a visit to a coffee shop.

Get access to top level industry professionals straight away

Every week you’ll be interacting with experts from the music industry that you would never normally have the chance to meet, let alone discuss your music career with.

Get answers to your music business questions

After each lecture there will be a Q&A session where you will get to pose your questions to the masterclass guru

Get feedback on your songs and production

Get feedback on your songs, production and share tips and techniques with access to an exclusive community dedicated to masterclass members only.

Build a professional network

Someone smart once said “The opposite of networking is not working“. Networking is everything in the music business and as a serious songwriter, artist or producer, you need to get to know others to work with, work for, or have work for you. That’s why this course is so much more than ‘education’. It’s giving you vital connections to hit songwriters, producers and music business gurus, as well as a like-minded network of people around the world all with a shared goal of success.

Weekly assignments to keep you busy

In these carefully designed masterclasses, our experts will be setting you assignments to work on every week which you will post in the community for feedback and  discussion. You’ll be given so many new techniques to practice, goals to work towards, as well as a regular motivational kick in the pants.

Watch live or later

Don’t worry if you can’t make all the live masterclasses, or if you join the course part way through, we’ll be uploading videos of them to watch anytime at your leisure, along with useful time cues to help you navigate to your favourite sections, and any additional course notes or downloads. You’ll have lifetime access to all 50 webinars.

Earn money back

Once you sign up, you’ll be given the option to refer a friend and we’ll reward you with a 20% commission to say thank you. You can refer as many friends as possible, which means that if you refer five friends, you get the entire course for free!

Two-pay option

We’re also going to make things easier for those of you who can’t afford full payment instantly. We’ll give you the option of two-pay for this course, meaning 50% payment to get started and then 50% payment 30 days later. There is a surcharge for this but we hope it makes things easier.

NEW: Free 30 minute coaching call with one of our team

For all new students to TSA we would like to get to know you better! To help us do this we’ll ask you to complete an intake form outlining what you do, what your goals are and where you feel you need the most help, then we’ll set up a 1:1 coaching call for you with one of our team to discuss this in more depth.

Note: This coaching call is available to all new students of The Songwriting Academy. It is not available to:
