Songwriting Workshops

We can help get your pupils get ready to enter The Young Songwriter 2020 competition.  Our songwriting workshops in schools are a perfect catalyst to spark ideas for writing a first song or developing songs already started. They give musical pupils an opportunity to learn from professional songwriters and have an extended songwriting tool-kit to develop their own songs.

Workshops are tailored to the needs of the group of pupils.  Past workshops have focused on general songwriting techniques & inspiration, lyrics & melodies, composition, production & recording.

Songwriting workshops in different formats from 1, 2 or 3 hour workshops to a whole day.

Prices on request.

Song Feedback for individual songs

We can provide insightful written song feedback on individual songs. When looking to improve your songwriting, we divide your song into three key areas: lyrics, melody and production/structure.

To take your songwriting to the next level, complete the song feedback form with your lyrics, upload your song then pay via paypal.  Please complete one form per song (special discounted price from now to the end of The Young Songwriter 2020 competition entry period of £35 fee per song).

Send your songs for insightful feedback.

Where did you hear about us?

“It has been such a pleasure to introduce Song Academy at our school; the children absolutely love their sessions, and some of our most shy children have surpassed themselves by gaining the confidence to get up on stage and sing their songs. Tali and Josie are inspirational leaders and I can’t wait until next term’s gig! Song Academy is a wonderful organisation that really champions and develops the artistic and creative abilities in young people – it is reassuring that such organisations exist at this time when the Arts are so undervalued and in danger of being marginalised in education.”
