Are you interested in information on how to write your own songs? Goodness, have I been there, and now I can! I can write my own songs, and I am more than glad to share my expertise with you. I'll be developing informational products in the future, but for now, I can offer you a motivational article about writing your own song...and writing it down!
It is my strong conviction that learning how to write a song down is one of the most fantastic ways to learn how to write a song in general. It's amazing what knowing how to notate music has done to my self confidence as a musician.
I used to muddle around and just play play play...record record, listen, listen...everything involved my ears...but not really my mind, not my eyes, not really my "complete self."
When one can notate a song, one can see it. One can look at it on a few page and make decisions without having to hear the song. It's much more effective. You don't have to listen to "hear." You don't have to "listen" to contemplate changes. Mostly, you save time, and you save your physical ears while training your inner ear.
It's really cool to be able to notate music.
Now, some out there are saying "I know how to notate music, I just don't know how to come up with my own music." In that case, I suggest you check out the How to write song lyrics article, which is really about how to write a song in general. Or you can check out the Inspirational Brainstorming article. There's tons of material available on the planet to inspire you, to move you...and you can even be moved by your own life.
If you are more the type who has songs written, maybe even recorded, but you want to grow in your songwriting abilities, then, as mentioned, I strongly suggest learning how to convert your musical imagination into written music.
I can help you, and I will be developing informational products for you. In the meantime, I suggest you go out and meet some folks who know how to do what you want to be able to do...and ask them if they can notate. If they can, that'll be a big indicator whether they will be able to help you.
I hope you get help, help yourself, and have fun along the way!
