Introduction to Songwriting
So, you want to be a songwriter? If you’ve already tried your hand at it, you probably know how amazing it feels to create your own music and express yourself through lyrics, chords, and melodies!
As you learn how to write songs, you may notice that every tutorial is a bit different. That’s normal, as the process of writing music is different for everyone! Some write the lyrics first, some the chord progression, and others a melody. Some might start with a title and build from there and others may start with an emotion or a personal event that they want to share through the art of song. All of these methods are perfect for writing songs.
As we share our songwriting tips below, feel free to skip around to different sections as you see fit. Find whatever gets you “into the flow” of your artistic self, and go from there!
