Find out how our expert song appraisals work — and how you can write like the pros

Turn your unpolished gem into a diamond with our unlimited expert song appraisals

Ever wondered what makes a song worthy of radio plays and downloads? Want to know why your songs haven’t turned you into a national music icon yet? Here’s where you can find out.

Your platinum membership includes detailed written song appraisals from our professional hit songwriters. We’ll analyse the tracks you’ve sent through and give suggestions on how you can improve it to make it more likely to be a hit.

We’ve worked with hundreds of big name artists throughout our collective careers, including Christina Aguilera, Celine Dion, Tina Turner, Dido, Backstreet Boys, Kylie Minogue and many others. It’s this experience that has allowed us to work out which songs have potential and which songs still need some extra work.

We’re here to help you get a foothold in the music industry and are happy to give you our honest opinion on your track. If we think it’s good enough, we’ll say. If we think it could use more work, we’ll explain what else you could do to improve on it.

How do the song appraisals work?

It all starts with an open mind. All you need to do is send us the basic idea you’ve come up with and the desire to improve and we’ll advise you on how to turn it into a professional-standard track.

We’ll go through your recording and give you suggestions on what might add an extra touch of quality to your music, before you go ahead and start getting it produced. There might be very little that needs adding, or there might be some better ways to do certain things. If we feel we could suggest a good melody, we’ll even record one and send it to you to see what you’d think. Each appraisal outlines helpful comments on structure, musical content, lyrics and an overall summary. We’ll even attach an audio clip if we have musical suggestions for you to try.

After making changes, you’re free to send it back to us for another look, too.

If we think the song is good to go and you’re happy with the result, we’ll point you in the direction of getting it professionally produced. You’ll be able to walk into the recording studio, confident in the knowledge that your song has the approval of platinum record-selling songwriters!

If you’re looking for production advice too, one of our expert producers will give you all the help and guidance you need on creating a demo that will really grab the attention of record labels and publishers.
