Song Writing & Composition

Learn Song Writing & Composition

Both songwriters and producers have a critical role in creating a successful piece of music. A good producer needs to understand song structure and melody, as well as how the arrangement of a song will impact its overall feel. A good songwriter must be aware of what is possible technically when writing music for themselves, an artist or band to record.

A songwriter does not necessarily need to know how to use recording software because they are writing the lyrics and music of an existing piece of music, but it is helpful if they have some understanding about how the arrangement will impact listeners’ experience with the finished product

Songs are one of humanity’s oldest forms of self-expression. Scientists recently located a “music center” in our brain, which makes us react to music in much the same way we react to other pleasure-inducing stimuli. Songs make us feel through rhythm and melody, but they stay with us thanks to the familiar patterns that comprise song structure.

Song Composition and Structure

Music Reading
Song structure refers to how a song is organized, using a combination of different sections. A typical song structure includes a verse, chorus, and bridge in the following arrangement: intro, verse — chorus — verse — chorus —bridge — chorus — outro. This is known as an ABABCB structure, where A is the verse, B is the chorus and C is the bridge.

Hit songs tend to follow the standard structure while jam bands and experimental musicians might diverge from the formula. If a song sounds familiar to us when we hear it for the first time, it’s because our ears have been trained to recognize the most commonly used song structures. But that’s not to say there isn’t value in variation as well.
