FREE Online Songwriting Course (4 Weeks)

We're launching a FREE online course - Songwriting: Creative Lyric Writing Approaches. Start date: July 23rd // Length: 4 Weeks


About This Course

Brought to you by the Academy of Music and Sound, this free course is intended to support both experienced songwriters and beginners alike, with fresh, new and exciting approaches to creating lyrical content.

Each week focuses on important elements of songwriting, featuring interviews, podcasts and activities. There are no assessed exams and no submissions necessary; although we encourage all students to participate in the group forums and interact with others studying the course; sharing work and giving and receiving feedback on ideas.


Students studying this course should have a basic knowledge of terminology used for song structure, although no prior education or experience is necessary. The only equipment needed is a writing pad and pen, a set of headphones/earphones and the energy and determination to improve lyrical output.
