Skype Songwriting Coaching with Songwriter Ed Bell

Songwriting Coaching / Songwriting Lessons with Songwriter Ed Bell

Struggling with writers block? Looking for fresh creative challenges? Want new tools, strategies and ideas to take your skills to the next level?

Hi. I’m Ed, songwriter/entrepreneur and creator of The Song Foundry.

I’ve been coaching one-on-one at The Song Foundry since 2015, and helping songwriters find their voice, unlock creativity they didn’t know they had, and understand more about how songs are made.

In my experience, there’s no such thing as being born a talented songwriter or not. 95% of it is practice, and learning to understand the songwriting process. So that’s what we’ll focus on – getting more songs under your belt and deepening your songwriting knowledge in a way that lets you bring your voice and vision to everything you write, while creating songs that are clear, well-crafted and distinctive to you.

If you’re looking to feel more confident about your songwriting – and find more flow when it comes to writing – it’d be a pleasure to work with you. I work with writers in all genres and at all levels, from absolute beginners to early career professionals and experienced hobby writers.

If you’re interested in working with me, I currently offer free 15-minute consultations. As soon as you’re ready, just hit the button below and let’s get started.

Who is Songwriting Coaching ideal for?


Quickly master the fundamentals of songwriting and start turning your ideas into songs.

Singers and Instrumentalists

Get valuable feedback while you’re still getting established and make sure your songs stand out from the crowd.

I had a great coaching session with Ed a few weeks ago. As I’m still pretty new to songwriting we didn’t have a huge amount of material to work with, but I found his advice helpful and informative. Would definitely recommend the service to those who are looking for a different perspective on their writing.

Why Coaching?

New Ideas

You’ll deepen your understanding of melody, lyrics, harmony, structure so you can write smarter, better and faster.

More Creativity

Creativity is a skill that you learn. You’ll learn how to burst through the common creative blocks and master the creative process on your own terms.

More Confidence

You’ll get honest and constructive feedback on your songs and feel more and more confident about following your own creative path.

Learn from the Masters

We’ll take apart some of the greatest songs of all time, so you can learn their secrets and use them in the songs you create.

Songwriting Coaching FAQs

Do I need coaching?

That’s up to you. Songwriting’s a personal thing – but there’s always more to learn. And if you feel stuck with your writing or you’ve never studied music formally, coaching is a great way to build new skills, increase your songwriting knowledge and really take your songs – and your confidence – to the next level.

You can check out this article for more information, and if you’re still not sure, go ahead and request a free, no-obligation consultation and we can talk about whether coaching is right for you.

Do I have to write in a specific genre?

No. There’s no set program – I’ll help you explore the genre or genres you want to work in. And because most of my professional work is in theatre and film, I have a broad background as a writer and can help you in virtually any genre.

Do I have to play an instrument?

Not necessarily. If you want to write music and don’t have any experience as a performer, I recommend you get some lessons before starting coaching. But if you’re happy writing lyrics only, some performing experience helps but isn’t necessary.

Do I have to commit to regular coaching sessions?

Do what works for you. If you’re interested in developing your skills longer term, you’ll make the best progress if you commit to sessions at least twice a month. But if you’re just looking for mentoring during a specific project or period, that’s fine too.
