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!
SONGWRITING WITH JUD FRIEDMAN
Hello to all of you who have signed up for my upcoming, soon-to-be mythical Online Live Intensive Songwriting Three-week course, whereas always my goal is to help you take your songwriting to another level and have a lot of fun doing so!
It will have several components. Attendees will play songs and I will give them brief one-on-one feedback from the perspective of what makes a song great - hopefully, a potential HIT - and why writing really special songs is the critical first step every aspiring Artist or Songwriter needs to take to become a star!
We will discuss how Collaboration works and why it is such an important skill for songwriters and artists to master. I will give attendees a co-writing assignment, break them into small groups and have them work on songs, with me overseeing (okay, annoying ) each group. Later our co-writers will play and we will discuss what they have written and what they learned from the process.
We also include Discussions and Q&A on all things Music Biz.. whatever your goal or interest is I am here to answer and guide you :)
For the song evaluations, before the first day of the workshop please email an mp3 only AND a lyric on a Word document size 20 font please of a song you wrote (or co-wrote) to email@example.com.
The ZOOM invitation will be sent to all participants via email on the first day of the course and we will send you a reminder approximately an hour before we are about to start.
See you all online soon. Get ready to roccccckkkk!
All the best,
