About This Class

Want to write a song but you need a little boost? I'm here to help! This class is for both beginner and seasoned songwriters, to develop as a songwriter, find new inspiration, and even help overcome "writer's block." I will share insider tips that have helped me write new and better music for the past 15 years, including methods for both lyrics and music. By the end of this class, you will be inspired to write!

No experience is necessary for this class, but you might also enjoy my class "Write Song Lyrics to Inspire Change," or any of my other Music Artistry Classes on my channel.
