Some songwriters and performers consider shows like the X-Factor and American Idol to be an unfair shortcut into the music industry. They believe in playing the clubs, developing their craft and earning their way in, the old fashioned way. Songwriting educator, Anthony Ceseri says that’s a commendable way of thinking and adds that you can improve your chances of getting into the music industry “the old fashioned” way by arming yourself with a knowledge of songwriting. Ceseri has a video showing songwriters how to effectively write lyrics to music. Songwriters can get it here: Writing Lyrics to Music.
While the idea of learning how to be a better songwriter may feel like a dry approach to an art-minded songwriter, you can typically break out of any level of writer’s block much easier when you have a firm knowledge base, and don’t rely solely on inspiration. Artists like John Mayer, Gavin DeGraw, Melissa Etheridge & Brad Whitford of Aerosmith, attended Berklee College of Music in Boston to learn how to better their craft... and it certainly served them well. While some songwriters would think that a class on lyric writing seems uninspired, John Mayer says he “learned a lot in that class,” in reference to his Lyric Writing course at Berklee. There is even a website now that shows you how to improve the way you write lyrics to music, using similar techniques to those taught at colleges teaching songwriting. Songwriter Ceseri thinks that all songwriters should educate themselves as much as possible. Ceseri is the creator of Success For Your Songs, where his goal is to help other writers learn more about their craft.
“Writing amazing songs is not a luxury reserved for those already rich and famous from their music” says Ceseri. With a little education on the subject of songwriting, local and regional artists will be able to turn their good songs into incredible ones, and it’ll help push them even further as artists. Since he feels so strongly about this, Ceseri has a great technique that will help songwriters deliver the meaning of their lyrics more clearly than they ever have before. To find out how, go to Writing Lyrics to Music.
What sets Ceseri’s information apart from other songwriting information found on the web, is it’s specific and actionable in nature, as opposed to the very generic information you might find with a random google search. And the information Ceseri provides is also not difficult to implement into your writing. As soon as you learn these tools, you can start applying them to your songs right away.
So, while getting on a show like the X-Factor can seem like an unfair advantage to some songwriters and performers, getting an education in songwriting simply gives you a much better chance of getting into the music industry the old fashioned way. And it’s without the stigma of having been another reality TV show contestant.
