Songwriters - Artists
Songwriting Courses - Retreats - Masterclasses
You’ve written a great and commercial song and made an amazing demo. Now what? It’s time to get the song – and maybe yourself as the artist – out there. But how?
Tough question, with no easy answers. But at least I know the hard answers, and I can help. I will guide you through what it takes and how the music business works: the steps necessary to become a successful artist or songwriter, writing and producing songs and music for film and t.v., live performance, and the arcane areas of music publishing and record deals – pretty much anything relating to the creation of music for commercial usages or presentation of yourself as an artist or a songwriter.
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 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 let us write that hit song! Jud Friedman.
ALL LEVELS of experience more than welcome from experienced Songwriters / artists / producers to just starting outs! Team work makes the Dream work!
Jud Friedman Songwriting masterclass webinar
Hello to all of you who have signed up for my upcoming, soon-to-be mythical Online Live Intensive Songwriting class.
My goal, as with all the Intensive Songwriting workshops/classes I do both in-person and online, is to help you take your songwriting to another level and have a lot of fun doing so...and at this moment in history, to give everyone a short break from Netflix. :)
We will be doing the ISQ&A via ZOOM.
The code will be sent to all participants via email on the day of the workshop we will also send you a reminder approx an hour before we are about to start.
WORKSHOP ATTENDEES, please email EITHER 1)a question about songwriting OR 2)a song you wrote (or co-wrote) - an mp3 AND a lyric on a word document to email@example.com. During the Class, I will respond to your question or comment on your song and then speak briefly with you.
The One-on-One questions are totally up to you but here are some possible areas we can explore:
1)What are the most important qualities of a great song or a "hit"? Are there really any rules?
2) How important are lyrics, melody, harmony/chord changes, structure, etc. these days?
3)How does collaboration work and why is it so valuable both creatively and on a business level?
4)What is the difference between traditional "songwriting” versus “production” oriented writing, e.g. writing to a track ("toplining")?
See you all online soon... Get ready to roccccckkkk!
All the best,
