Introduction Songwriting

Struktur, Do’s & Dont’s

Songwriting Module 3

Application of theoretical skills

Becoming creative


Practice makes perfect and this is especially true for songwriting. The intensive study of structural content now finds its application. Continuity is a key in the development to become a songwriter. The focus is on creativity and conceptual work in composition.

Songwriting Module 4

Arrangements & highlights in compositions

Catchy arrangements and their targeted use in pop often determine whether a song leaves a lasting impression. Ambition in connection with goal-oriented work are the main points of the semester, as well as the use of highlights in the song.

Songwriting Module 5

Encourage strengths

Set focus


In the course of your studies you have developed preferences in the areas of lyrics, topline and tracking. These strengths should now be explicitly promoted. Furthermore, the development of your own production and recording chain is in focus. By the end of the semester, you will be able to professionally record your works according to your individual requirements and demands.
