Your Songwriting Home
Would you love to be able to have the time, knowledge and opportunities to build an amazing career through your music and songs?
EVER WONDERED WHAT IT'S LIKE TO MAKE A SUCCESSFUL LIVING FROM YOUR SONGWRITING?
Becoming a successful songwriter on your own is not impossible, it's just hard. Don't worry, it's not your fault.
How can you expect to stand out from the crowd?
How can you be heard in a sea of writers and artists all knocking on the same doors?
It takes guts and stamina, laser-like focus... and honing your talent.
But you don't have to do this alone.
Imagine what it would feel like to have a successful, abundant life, from your songwriting, without having to work the 9-5...
Imagine what it would feel like to wake up each day and focus solely on the thing you love...
Imagine being surrounded by supportive, encouraging kindred songwriters, who understand who you are, what you're trying to do, and can HELP you in your journey as much as you can help theirs...
Imagine meeting the right people in the music business to give you feedback and, more importantly, take you to the next level...
