As a songwriter with more than 50,000,000 album sales, and singles on Billboard’s Pop, Country, and R&B charts—and as a songwriting instructor—I study successful songs in various genres.

By identifying the tools that cause some melodies to stick in our listeners’ brains—and some lyrics to resonate with millions of listeners—we can incorporate these techniques into our own work ... with our own, unique spin.

Success doesn’t happen by luck or coincidence. There are no magic answers or quick roads to songwriting success; steer clear of anyone promising them.

But, with hard work, practice, and perseverance, I’ve seen my students write #1 singles, sign staff-writing deals, publish their songs, win contests and festivals, have their songs recorded, and become hits.

 It’s not easy – but it is possible.

There’s nothing in the world like hearing our songs on the radio and in TV shows and films. I hope my books, instructional CDs, workshops, and critique service will help you to achieve your songwriting goals.
