#5 Songwriting Crash-Course: Melody


The tutors from Tolbooth songwriting and band workshops Pump Up The Jam take you on a 7 part crash-course in writing your own music, everything from writing your first lyrics and chords, right through to recording your song and getting it online for others to hear!

Part 5, how to sing the words you’ve written. The melody can help tell the story, define the genre of the song, and will be the main thing that draws people in!

Show us what you’ve been creating!
