Knowing your production software inside out is important, but will not necessarily lead to writing good music. To write a powerful song you need to understand how the various musical elements such as melody, harmony, lyrics, and arrangement come together to create a cohesive composition that can ultimately express your message. After that you will need to record and produce your song, and then you may even want to release it. This course will cover all these crucial aspects, taught by some of the most experienced songwriters in NYC, and will cover everything from music theory, topline and lyric writing, recording, arranging, to releasing and promoting your music.
