I’ll never regret my time spent dabbling in music, primarily for what it taught me about my family, myself, and the real world.

How To Write A Hit: 5 Psychological Tricks 

When you’re sitting down at the piano or the guitar and getting ready to write a new song, it’s often difficult to know where to start. If you watch interviews with well-known songwriters, you start to notice that half of them have no idea how they do it. They just sit down at their instrument and see what happens.
It’s true that there’s an art to songwriting, but that doesn’t mean that there’s no room for science. In fact, people are constantly carrying out research to try to identify what makes a song successful, with the idea being that if they can identify what works and what doesn’t, they can do more of the former and less of the latter.

The lives of musicians are radically different than they have ever been before. The tools at our disposal are phenomenally powerful, and while they are no longer the same as they once were — and this fact upsets some people — they are opening new avenues of musical creation. Even the physical act of playing one’s instrument is at times different than it could ever have been in the past. A whole new generation of technology is entering the market and revolutionizing the way drummers see themselves as musicians (and the way that they practice their instruments).

Essential Questions To Answer Before You Finish A Songwriting Collaboration

In a music-theatre context, there are a number of questions that must be answered before any song can be completed. Often when lyricists and composers collaborate on songs for a new show, these questions may be answered unconsciously or internally by each collaborator or not at all. If one person were writing a show all by herself, that might be just fine. But in a collaboration with one or two other artists, it’s critical that everyone on the team articulate these questions together, discuss them and come to agreement on each answer. If this is done before starting work on a given song, it can save everyone a lot of extra work, frustration and other unpleasant feelings. Take the time to be just a little bit pedantic when it comes to songs you’re co-writing for a new musical and you’ll be much happier with the results.
