You probably play the guitar or the piano, but you also consider your laptop a 'basic instrument'. Do you want to perform your songs yourself? Then the Singer Songwriter course you can take at the Academy of Pop Music might be something for you.
A good foundation remains essential. That is why this course offers a unique combination of songwriting tools and practical development. What secrets do you need to know to score a hit? How do you avoid clichés? Your coaches are in the middle of international songwriting practice.
The Songwriting (MediaMusic) course attaches great importance to learning by doing and has developed its own study method (Crossfade). That is why during the course you will be working on assignments from the world of music at a professional level, both in front of and behind the scenes.
