When it comes to songwriting, I’ve seen many musicians, designers, and musicians struggle with music. Since you are reading this article, I will assume that you want to be a better writer. I’ll give you a few tips you’ve never thought of before. I think a lot of composers don’t realize that in order to write good music they have to spread their word. Most people generally get their quotes from family and friends. Many young people get their word from family, friends, the latest television shows and music videos (video and radio). This is not necessarily a bad thing but, it has its limitations. Short phrases will limit your writing.
In school, we learn how to write sentences by reading sentences.
After reading the sentence, we are going to copy what we saw. Most of us listen to songs and sing along, but we don’t spend time studying those songs when our writing suffers.
One of the best ways to improve your songwriting skills is to study music. Google music and songs you like, not songs you like and read. Read the songs freely and read them as you play them. You’ll gain a new appreciation for songwriting, because it really is a kind of Lyrics.
Record companies, publishers and even producers have target audiences.
They are experts in singing. If you look at songwriters, you’ll see many appear in musical after musical. That’s because they write and read music all the time and they read life (music from life).
Another good activity is to find writers you like, find other songs they have written and read them. You will find inspiration and use this technique to greatly enhance your word writing.
When I was a kid, I would sit and listen to a tape (we now have cads) of speeches in front of me. I learned a lot about production and music from that. I want to know who wrote and produced every song on the album. Curiosity led me to become a singer, songwriter and producer.
So remember, you have to be a student of great music and a musician.
So, read music, books, magazines, newspapers, internet stories (like this one) and anything else you can manually add to your voice. If you find a word you don’t understand, go to dictionary.com or Google for the definition. And most of all, he writes.
