THE PLATFORM FOR YOUNG SONGWRITERS
Welcome to Song Academy, the leading platform for young songwriters aged 8-18. We enable young people to express themselves and be heard. We believe that songwriting is a powerful way for young people to accelerate social change and create their future.
Founded 11 years ago, we run songwriting clubs, holiday workshops, school workshops, birthday parties, a song feedback service and the annual Young Songwriter competition. Following the Coronavirus pandemic we’re running online songwriting clubs and online songwriting workshops in August.
Our uniqueness is that we focus on the creative process of songwriting – writing powerful lyrics and composing interesting melodies & instrumental parts. We believe that songwriting is hugely beneficial to young people, especially in their increasingly demanding, fast-paced & technological lives, with little time to reflect and create for fun.
Whether you are writing your first song or an album we are passionate about empowering you to develop your songwriting skills & get your songs heard.
We wrote a song to remind the world that everyone has a right to be loved, has a right to belong and a right to a brighter future.
…I just really enjoyed the music, and could actually feel the people behind the songs, which has to be pretty close to the whole point of writing!
…It’s a fantastic opportunity for aspiring tunesmiths up and down the country to showcase their songs to music industry insiders.
I found the quality of songwriting to be surprisingly creative and quite advanced, yet refreshingly young and vibrant. What a wonderful outlet for communication.
It was most impressive to hear young writers singing or rapping about their own lives without any outside input or help from adults.
I was so impressed by the standard of the entries and know that Britain’s musical future is in safe hands.
I am impressed and delighted by the outstanding young talent which Song Academy has discovered across the UK. Song Academy’s fresh approach is set to enrich music education in the UK.
I support anything that encourages children to find their way into the world of music, especially something like Song Academy which requires no formal training and their emphasis is on fun and self-expression.
The Song Academy Young Songwriter competition offers young songwriters a golden opportunity to showcase their music and get invaluable feedback at a really formative time in their development.
We’ve been really proud to be part of such a creative and inspiring song writing competition and have been moved by some of the entries we’ve heard along the way.
