Would you like to write your own songs? Or do you already have some experience and want to take your songwriting to the next level?Then SONGWRITING CONTROL is just right for you!In this course Philipp will show you everything about music theory, scales, chords, melodies, how a song is structured, finding ideas, rhythm, tempo, writing lyrics, song analysis, how to write for others, and much more...But what exactly will you learn in this course?

Music Theory Part1: In the first section of Songwriting Control you will get the perfect introduction to music theory, tones, scales, major, minor, chords, chord progressions and also the basics of a melody. This section could be sold as a separate course under the name "Music Theory for Beginners", but we have integrated it into the course here because we want to bring all participants up to the same level. What is a song? Maybe this question sounds totally banal to you, but it's not if you look deeper. In the second section you will learn in which parts a song is structured, how to identify the style, determine rhythm and tempo and much more. The highlight of this section are the tasks for you. Philipp has picked out a song for you in each genre and analysed it. Your task is to also analyse the song according to the given parameters and then compare your analysis with that of Philipp. Feel free to use the Questions & Answers section to get individual feedback from Philipp.

How to start a new song: Here you get a guideline to start with your new song. Here is the rough procedure: Finding ideas, chords, melody, lyrics, rhythm, style and song parts. All steps will be explained to you in detail by Philipp. At the end, you will be given the task of finding your own chord progression. Writing lyrics: A central element of songwriting is, of course, writing lyrics. You will learn strategies to find fruitful ideas for your lyrics, rhyme schemes and also how to tell a story with your song. In most cases, artists want to indirectly tell a story with their song or simply get a message across with the song. You will learn all this in this section. Take a look at some free preview videos here so you can see for yourself the quality of the course. Now it's time to write your first song with all the knowledge you have learned before. As you know, only applied knowledge makes a difference and here everything is put into practice. At the end of this section you will have your own song.

Part 2: Secrets of the big "hits": What actually distinguishes a hit song from a normal song? How can you increase your chances of getting a hit? Of course, there is no blueprint for this. But Philipp tells you everything he does every day in his work as a musician to write a hit.

Music Theory Part2: In the first section you already understood the basics of music theory. But now it goes even deeper and you learn advanced elements of music theory. Here is a brief overview of the topics: Reharmonisation, Harmonic Minor, Ostinato Tones, Slash Chords and Walking Basses.Writing Melodies: Feel free to watch some free preview videos. In this section you'll learn how to link and express emotions with your melody, key changes and a lot more about writing melodies.Writing for others: Maybe you don't want to perform the song you've written yourself. If that's the case, you'll learn here what to consider when writing songs for others. Questions & Answers: Since Philipp often gets asked the same questions, we have created a chapter to answer them in video form. So if you have a question and it's not covered in this chapter, we'll be happy to create a video to answer it. This course is for anyone who wants to have fun with songwriting and master the topic from A-Z step by step.So what are you waiting for? Enrol in Songwriting Control today and we'll see you in the first video.We look forward to seeing you!All the bestPhilipp & Marius
