We'll cover the topics of lyrics and give you advice how to approach songwriting in case you have to fit the melody to the lyrics or vice versa.

We tried to create a course that can be really helpful to you, so there are exercises after each section.

We've created a course that is useful for any music genre. All the example audio files can be downloaded, so that you can also practice at home.

If you want to know why certain chords work, why certain melodies sound good and what you can do to turn any song into a catch great song, then this course is for you.
