The VMS Songwriting Lesson Advantage
If you know what you “hear in your head” but you can’t play it, let a VMS songwriting teacher help you create the music around your lyrics. If you already have a song, you can get some ideas for alternative chord progressions or edits on the structure.
We pay attention to music theory tips and tricks that help you understand why certain chords and progressions work well together. Learning to do this will give you access to more ideas when planning your song’s mood and style and future writing.
VMS teachers are multi-talented professional musicians with music degrees who have writing, arranging, recording, and performing experience. A well-rounded teacher can provide a much deeper understanding of each students’ needs and concerns. Instructors are devoted to their students’ progress, and they customize every writing project to each student’s interests.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget things learned in lessons, but not at VMS. Log in to our learning management system to keep track of assignments and progress reports for every lesson.
When the basic outline of your song is ready, explore layering techniques using songwriting and production programs. If you would like to record it, your instructor will help guide you through the process in our state-of-the-art recording studio. Work with VMS Recording and have your song professionally produced precisely the way you want it!
