The Art of Songwriting – Download the eBook instantly!
Songwriting isn’t about playing by the rules. So you need a songwriting book that won’t give you any.
The Art of Songwriting is the ultimate guide to learning how to create, think and live like a songwriter.
It’s not about following a method or learning rules. It’s not about spoon-feeding you tips and tricks that don’t help you grow as an artist in the long run.
It’s about challenging you to think for yourself, own your creative development and do things your way.
It’s about breaking down key songwriting concepts in a way anyone can understand – without dumbing them down or giving you any hard-and-fast rules.
It’s about giving you the tools and motivation you’ll need to write smarter, bolder and more confidently than you ever have before.
Mastering songwriting is mastering the art of making your own rules. And The Art of Songwriting will show you how.
What’s Inside The Art of Songwriting:
• Understand the important songwriting principles, as tools not rules.
• Master the art of thinking creatively: learn to think like a songwriter.
• Explore what it means to be an artist: why songs are about much more than words and music.
• Become the best, boldest, most confident version of the artist you are already.
As a bit of a songwriting nerd I have read most books available on the subject. I have a library at home of over 40!
This is in the top 3 of all books I have ever read on songwriting and I keep going back to it. Probably the clearest book there is on the subject, with one invaluable tip after another. Must read!Peter, Amazon UK Reviewer
An imaginative and engaging guide to the art of songwriting that offers practical tips for both the novice and experienced songwriter.Ian, Amazon UK Reviewer
Great for both novice and experienced songwriters alike.
Wonderful tips and advice and really breaks down songwriting so it’s doable and accessible for everyone. Really engaging read but also great to dip in and out of when you need some tips on the fly. Highly recommended!KG1984, Amazon UK Reviewer
Great book – I got it yesterday and can’t put it down, highly recommended!
Really gives a new perspective that is different from other songwriting books!Daffyd, Amazon US Reviewer
Ed takes the craft of songwriting to a different level – allowing the reader (and writer) to remember why songwriting matters, and why it matters to do it well.
I’d highly recommend it for anyone wanting to explore the world of songwriting, or to brush up on the reasons why craft is important in making interesting and compelling songs.Barbara, Amazon US Reviewer
An invaluable resource for songwriters of all levels of experience. It manages to cover some pretty complex subjects in a really accessible way – lots of relevant examples from well-known songs.
The concepts covered apply to everything from musical theatre to hip hop. As a teacher I’ve told my students to read it – with great results.Sam, Amazon UK Reviewer
