THE ART AND BUSINESS OF SONGWRITNG COLLABORATION
Jud Friedman is a 6-time Grammy, Oscar, Golden Globe nominated, award winning, billboard No.1 Hit songwriter
who has had hits with Whitney Houston, James Ingram, Tina Turner, LeAnn Rimes, and many more.
The best thing about Jud however 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’s not impossible and it’s not just a dream. However, it can be a long road to get there.
But what if there was a shortcut? A path that you could take to fine-tune your skills, meet others in the industry that could help you, learn how to make the most money in an industry that is constantly changing, and work alongside people who are already successful. That path is available for you to take now.
Like any business, you can achieve your goals faster if you have a mentor……someone who has gone before you, done what you want to do, accomplished the things you want to accomplish. More importantly, you need someone who truly cares about you, your music and your success. There are a lot of people out there who make big promises, but once their class is done, so are they.
You can take any course on songwriting, production, artist development, but the difference is the person.

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.”
