Have you ever written a song, compared it to one of the hits that you hear on the radio every day and wondered what that hit song contains that your song may be missing? Well, today we’ve got a brand-new course on Truefire.com for you that delves into songwriting or rather how to “Get Your Song Write”… uh right.
“Get Your Song Write” is part of Truefire’s foundry courses that are all independently-produced courses by some selected educators. In this case, it is Anthony Little, award-winning producer and songwriter, as well as Jennifer Day Morrison, better known as Jennifer Day, an amazingly talented singer from the U.S.
During the course of those 38 video lessons that span a length of almost 2,5 hours, you are provided with a complete and analytical approach to song writing. The two songs that serve as an example are “Firefighter” and “Mr. Moon (Take it Away)”. Whether you are a complete beginner or already familiar with song writing terminology, in this course you are going to learn the very basics up until secret formulas that will teach you contemporary songwriting techniques.
You start by defining the different parts that form a song and what their specific function is. You learn about when to use certain section and how to avoid typical mistakes by following the proven methods of a high-class producer such as Anthony Little. Learn what it takes to write hit songs nowadays and how to refine your already written songs so you can give them that small something they might have been missing so far.
Get to know why rhythm is so vital for the success of a song, and by rhythm I don’t necessarily mean the pure musical rhythm when you play a piece. Rhythm can be more. It comprises patterns that we all have grown accustomed to over the years, listening to the radio every day and absorbing those patterns that build our musical culture. Learn how top producers use these patterns to create great songs that stick for a long time.
However, this course goes beyond the basic structure of a song. You are also going to learn how important lyric is and how vital it is for your song to choose your words wisely. Be a painter and paint a picture that tells a story with words and your music.
Once you know which story to tell, you need good transitioning tools that are supported by other rhythm or melody. All these components make a good song. All these components form a well-rounded, complete song that is certain to stick with your audience and convey your story and the emotions you link with your story. Be creative, be productive and be successful by following the secret formula of the current industry.
The videos are accompanied by .pdf files that summarize the explained content. The files also give you a basic scheme to practice what you have learnt in your courses.
Despite some minor flaws in production, the content that is presented here is of an extremely high value to everyone who is serious about songwriting. You are getting taught what to look at and what variables equal contemporary hit songs. I very much liked the course and enjoyed following it. Definitely recommended! Get ignited in your songwriting career!
