Songwriter Exercises - Become a Great Songwriter Now!

"Follow these Exercises and write your song."

Immerse yourself into the songwriting process. I believe the best way to learn songwriting is to start writing songs, but not without help. And I feel the following is the best way to use this website.

There Are 3 Key Stages To become a Successful Songwriter.

  1. You must feel comfortable & confident as a songwriter, not nervous or embarrassed.
  2. You must not just learn the lyric writing basics alone, but apply the basics in song.
  3. You must finish a song (no matter how terrible), and start another song to get better.

Follow these step-by-step songwriter exercises to walk you through your next songwriting session, so you become familiar and comfortable as a songwriter.

Each songwriter exercise links to relevant lessons on how to write lyrics so you can immediately apply them to your song development.

Download additional songwriting tools & strategies in order to finish your song...and then immediately start over with a fresh songwriting idea. The more you write, the better you become.

Let's get started!

1. Determine your Songwriter Emotion
As a songwriter, choose a target emotion you want listeners to experience in your song. Being a songwriter has little to do with you; everything to do with others.

3. Songwriter Dynamic
Songwriter Dynamic is the "character" of your song; the "way" your song flows. The genre of song has strong influence on your songwriter dynamic.

5. Songwriter Prominence
Some songwriters like to emphasize (or "call more attention to") their lyrics or music by diminishing the intensity of other.

7. Songwriter Rhythm
Rhythm is a very powerful part of your song. Lyrical delivery is singing or reciting your words at a pace in-sync with your songwriting tempo and beat.

2. Songwriting Tempo
"Tempo" is the speed of your song. Every song has a specific speed, but most songwriters don't consciously set tempo when songwriting.

4. Songwriting Sections
As a songwriter, your next task is to figure out which layout is the best for expressing your target emotion to your listeners.

6. Songwriting Notation
If you can't notate your song, It'll be difficult to develop your song if you can't notate your lyrics & melody. You need way to transpose your song.

7. Song Structure
Learn the pieces to all of the major parts of any song layout. See where each element normally goes in most popular songs and learn how to structure your own songs.
