Jordan live. Through a series of playful, imaginitive, creative and effective excercises, you will find
yourself having more fun and getting more done with superior results than you have since you
were a kid.|

Whether you are contemplating writing songs for the very first time or you are a seasoned writer going through a mental drought, this book, like no other, will produce the results you want and need the most.

The Craft and Business of Songwriting The one book every serious songwriter should OWN. This is the most comprehensive, well rounded book on the subject of songwriting by a man who is considered the formost authority by many. As founder of the Los Angeles Songwriters Showcase, John Braheny has earned the respect and admiration of the songwritng community at large.
What makes this book so powerful is John's unique ability to cover the craft
of songwriting equally as in depth as the business end. Therefore, having this
much information on both aspects of songwriting makes this my number 1 choice
as a point of reference for all related topics. Think of this book as a very
good investment if you wish to pursue songwriting as a career. ~

A great place to start if you're looking for your first publishing deal. Not only does this book contain annually updated information, but it's full of information, interviews, tips and advice about everything from submitting to good songwriting resources. Why, they even have "Li'l hank's Guide For Songwriters" among the resources they have listed. Besides publishers, there are record companies, jingle companies, theaters, and artist manageent companies in their listings. Though this is a rich source of contacts, if you do submit to any company, go in with both eyes open. Good advice no matter where you find your connections. ~
