Positive and Constructive Help To Make Your Songs The Best They Can Be
Writing a song for a TV Show or Film
The steps it takes to breakthrough to musical stardom as an Artiste and or writer.
What makes a great song? A HIT song? How do you break through as a songwriter?
How are songwriters actually making - or not making – money these days?
How can you best use your interests and talents to monetise your music?
Collaboration is a HUGE part of the modern music business and anyone who wants to be a professional songwriter.
How does one succeed as a songwriter in today's "real world", not the classroom.
What does it take or even mean to write a "great" song or a "hit"?
What can you do to have the best chance of getting your music heard in the modern world?
Why is collaboration so helpful both creatively and on a business level. Are you writing hits? If not, what's missing?
What do you really need to know about the "business" side of music.
Why does a song "work" or "not work"
I will provide all the answers and help in all areas: generating and developing your ideas, lyrics, music, the difference between writing for yourself as an artist and writing for someone else, what makes a great lyric and melody and how to make collaborations work. I will show how you to avoid the common pitfalls of new and even established writers, such as lyrical cliches and “old” chord structures, and how to be ready when – as often happens – you are called upon to make changes to your music quickly, even in the studio while a song is being recorded. And always, we will keep our eyes on the ball of writing something that is not only great but also contemporary and commercial.
Join me and lets write that hit song! Jud Friedman.

“Jud and I have worked together since the beginning of our respective careers.
He’s actually one of the first songwriters that peermusic signed after I started with the firm. The man knows how to write hit songs!
In fact, he should give lessons on the perfect structure of writing pop hits. On top of his creative talent, he has a wicked intelligence and a great sense of humor.”
–Kathy Spanberger President and Chief Operating Officer, peermusic
"The best thing about Jud is his passion. Not just for music but for people. He is one of the rare kinds of individuals in the music industry that truly cares. He knows that helping others become successful is
rewarding on both a business and a personal level and that's what you truly need".
It was great to learn from Jud. His insight, guidance and support was so helpful.
And having the opportunity to collaborate with other writers, and learn how to do this was priceless. Met some really lovely people too!
