The Song Science Series (Extended Editions)

5 course bundle that will inspire your next hit song!

Are you a songwriter?

If you are, you know how hard it can be to write (and FINISH) a new song.

Maybe you've tried to write songs, but you suffer from writer's block.

Maybe you've written a lot of songs, but they all sound the same.

Or maybe you just don't know where to start.

This is what The Song Science Series seeks to destroy.

In The Song Science Series, I will teach you how to use chords to write songs like a pro songwriter.

Did you know there are actually certain rules pro songwriters follow (and break)?

I will not just teach you those rules, but actually show you how they work in real hit songs.

We'll breakdown songs by:

Adele, Bob Dylan, Weezer, The Beatles, Justin Bieber, Sam Smith, John Mayer, Leonard Cohen, Jason Mraz, The Temptations, Kanye West, Pat Benatar, Alicia Keys, Madonna, Bette Midler, Faith Hill, Taylor Swift, John Legend, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, The Chainsmokers, Halsey, Ke$ha, Pitbull, The Plain White T's, Selena Gomez, Mariah Carey, Philip Phillips, Queen, Dusty Springfield, Stevie Wonder, The Backstreet Boys, Bon Jovi, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Jack Johnson, John Parr, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Miley Cyrus, Bonnie Tyler, Avril Lavigne, Bruno Mars, Jimmy Hendrix, Sheryl Crow, Ariana Grande, Lilly Allen, Paramore, Christina Perri, Carole King, Beyonce, Green Day, Katy Perry, The Beach Boys, Regina Spektor, and much, much more!

Not only will you understand songwriting theory much better, but by going through example after example, you'll begin to drop your songwriting muscle memory...

And begin writing new types of songs you'll love.

"This is a super helpful, well-paced, information-packed, easy-to-follow and implement course. The quick, concise lessons are clear and short enough to convey a single core concept that can then be used immediately in songwriting. Thank you so much for an excellent course!"

- Brett Rhodes, Song Science #1 Student

"I finally learned and understood things I was never able to wrap my head around, when analyzing songs."

- Fabio Trentini, Song Science #2 Student

"Amazing, just amazing is all I can say. This course has already explained and helped me so much in my songwriting ventures. I would 100% recommend this course to any songwriter, both beginner and pro alike. Most people wouldn't even think to add what they are teaching you in these videos."

- Joe Jarvis, Song Science #2 Student

"What the instructor is teaching are concepts that you can't find in any other songwriting course. The methods taught can be implemented right away after watching each video. Being an amateur songwriter with no industry experience, I was able to benefit from these tips and I used it to improve the songs I've already written and my songwriting in general. Take this course if you want to make your song structures interesting and have each song section distinctly different from one another."

- Ahmad Arangale, Song Science #3 Student

"Another brilliant songwriting course from (Musicians Inspired). There's lots of information here to help you make informed decisions in your songwriting, all delivered clearly. This makes understanding these useful concepts easy so you can start putting them into practice right away. Highly recommended to any songwriter that wants to be more in control of what they can create."

- Marcus Thompson, Song Science #3 Student

"Glad I took this course. A lot of examples from all kind of artists. I understand the process of modulation a whole lot better. Good course."

- Wil Wouters, Song Science #4 Student

"A great course on modulation and changing key smoothly. Not only because there are not many courses about that topic, but also because it is very clearly explained, despite dealing with complex music theory concept."

- Alain Rameau, Song Science #4 Student
