With 15 years of experience running songwriting programmes designed for young people aged 8-18, we’ve created our first short video course for beginner songwriters to write their first song!
Do you know any musical and creative young people who haven’t written their own song? They maybe haven’t even thought of writing their own song, or they’d like to but don’t know where to start!
You don’t need to be able to play an instrument to write your first song with our new video course as we’ve created backing tracks for each part of your song. If you do play an instrument we’ve shown you how to play the chords (on piano and guitar).
Scarlet and Brendan from Song Academy will talk you through each stage of the songwriting process to write your own song – from start to finish – deciding on a concept for your song, writing lyrics, improvising melodies, creating chord progressions and recording their song.
There are useful worksheets for each stage of the process to make it really easy to write your song. For example worksheets on: suggested song structure, song map outline (blan and an example) piano chords chart, guitar chords chart, writing rhyming couplets and putting your song together.
You can send us your finished song at the end and we’ll send you a certificate!
The beginners video course costs £35 and you’ll be able to write your own song & have a recording to share with friends & family.
“This is such a fun course! Thank you! My daughter Sara is 11 years old and loves singing, she wrote a fantastic song with your help and now spends most of her free time writing songs. Watch out Taylor Swift!” Paul, Father
