Writing lyrics is a transfer of information, ideas and emotion from the writer to the listener. But how well we transfer these things determines how good or great those lyrics are and that comes down to the language we choose, the imagery we use and a ton of other factors.
We are looking to get into the heart and mind of the listener with our lyrics so they relate to them. We want our lyrics to stir the listener, making them feel or understand something. And this course is all about HOW to do that really successfully with some very simple, easy techniques which, once you know them, you can use every time you write.
What's in the course?
The Seven Senses. We start off by looking at the seven senses and how by using them in our writing we can generate incredible raw material for our lyrics.
A Kind of Magic. Then we look at a kind of magic formula for making our writing really memorable and experiential. And it’s not a gimmick, it’s rooted in both poetry and biology and it’s pretty brilliant.
Mind Control. We'll cover just how you get into the hearts and minds of the listener and how we can craft our lyrics to control their mind and give them a sensory experience they will remember. If you can control the mind, you can control everything - including the heart.
Panning for Gold. We'll learn how to select the best bits of our writing - the bits which will make the song really resonate with the listener - those lines and words which get into their head and heart.
Putting it all Together. Finally we’ll look at how we can use all the wonderful material we’ve written and produced in the projects to create a final lyric. We'll look at how to write the verse and the chorus and how to find the song title.
This course will leave you with the ability to create endless ideas and quality material, it’s going to open up a well of lyrical possibilities you can dip into whenever you want.
You’ll be able to create a lyric about anything, anywhere, anytime which will be poetic, original and will make people feel something and remember your song.

Hi, I'm Ben Murdock, The Songwriter Coach. I've been writing songs for around 30 years. Just saying that makes me feel old!!
I have a Masters Degree in Songwriting and have spent the last few years really digging into and researching the songwriting process and all the techniques that go into this wonderful and amazing creative outlet.
Sometimes what I discovered didn't surprise me at all, but quite often the things I found out amazed and astonished me.
We often write songs and don't know the names of the techniques we're using - we just use them because they feel right. We learned these by stealth - our teachers were the artists we spent hours and hours listening to. But the key is, we learned these techniques.
And it turns out there is plenty more to learn for most of us; an abundance of new techniques to discover which we've never known. And these techniques might just take a lyric of yours from good to beautifully sublime.
I want to share everything I've learned over the years in the hope that it will help fellow songwriters, like you, learn new tricks and techniques which make your songwriting more powerful and memorable.
