The Song Foundry is about sharing great songwriting ideas with the world. We think smart songwriters are better songwriters. We think self-promotion is important but we think self-development is important too. We think everyone who wants access to first-rate songwriting training should be able to find it, so we started doing what we could to make it available online.
We launched our new website in Summer 2015 and it’s the the hub of everything we do: Articles packed with ideas, tips and inspiration, a Bookshelf of useful resources by some great authors, and access to Skype Coaching for anyone who wants some one-on-one attention. From time to time you’ll be able to hang out with us in real life too: we’re working on Masterclasses, Courses and in-person Coaching opportunities around the world as we think we can best serve our community.
