Songwriting Coaching

One-on-one support with your work. Wherever you are in the world.

Hi – I’m Ed.


I created The Song Foundry and run our Coaching Service.


I work with smart and ambitious songwriters who want to hone their skills and raise their game. I work with writers at all levels of experience, from absolute beginner upwards. I work with writers passionate about creating pop, rap, rock, country and theatre music, and everything in between.

There’s no specific program or syllabus. It’s about giving you the one-on-one attention that will help you improve as a writer from your very first session onward.

Maybe you’re self-taught and want to improve your craft knowledge. Or maybe you want support while you put together your first album. Or maybe you feel like you have all of these great ideas but can’t quite seem to turn them into songs you feel good about. Whatever your goals, I’m here to help you find the tools – and the confidence – to achieve them in style.

You can find out more about how you can benefit from coaching below, and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

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.
