It is an incredible thing that you have built in this community we call SongU.com!"
-- Brad Y., ID

Slow DSL and creaky computer overcome, thanks to your advice."

-- Fiona B., New Zealand
"I cannot tell you how much I love and appreciate SongU.com. Itís the next step I needed in my songwriting journey. I had previously tried to get in contact with song pluggers, and all they did was criticize me and tell me that I needed to take their coaching classes (for lots of money!) before they would work with me. Your mentors (especially Alan Roy Scott) have been respectful, encouraging and wonderful. So, you are doing great things! Thank you so very much."
-- Abby M., IN
"I'll definitely keep pitching through SongU.com. It's such a great resource, and everyone involved so hugely helpful, informative and kind. So just keep doing whatever you are doing because it definitely shines!"

"Your site is a treasure trove of information and opportunities. I'm glad I've found SongU.com!"
-- Shaun T., Australia
I just wanted to say thanks for providing such great opportunities to those of us outside of Nashville. You guys helped me improve my writing enough to get a Top 10 American Idol contest song a couple of years ago as a brand new writer. Now, you got a song of mine into Reba McEntire's hands! I submitted the song to my Coach for a critique. She loved it and asked me to email it to her because she wanted to pitch it to Reba. This would have been utterly impossible without the opportunities provided by SongU.com. How could some Southern California busy lawyer possibly create the relationships necessary in Nashville to get a song to an artist like that? Only one way: SongU.com. I have referred several people to you and will continue to do so. Your services are truly invaluable to me. I have also signed several songs with one of your ongoing publisher pitch guests, and we are on hold with an artist from Belgium, Tatyana Storm. I am thrilled. Thanks so much for what you offer. I cannot say enough about how perfect SongU.com is for a guy like me.
-- Perry S, CA
"I can't get enough of all the information available on the website. Learning so much, just loving it."
-- Alex M., NY
"Thank you SongU.com is a blessing!"
-- Don E., NC
"I have researched songwriting and music sites extensively. I don't know how you could do it much better than SongU.com. It is creative excellence, and it is maintained very professionally. When I started five years ago, I was as "raw" as they come. I simply had a few title ideas and my own personal enthusiasm. Today, I have a few song cuts! I may not go onto become a staff writer at a Major Label or a professional writer with several hits, but I have grown immensely. I believe I can do this now because of the SongU.com infrastructure. Like a good athletic coach, SongU.com puts their "team members" in the best possible position they can to succeed. It's all there for anyone to take it to the next level."
-- Dan R., PA
"Thank you so much for the info. You guys are so thorough in all that you do!"

-- Donna O., MO
"SongU.com has opened up so many unbelievable doors for me."
-- Gene R., TN
"I've signed up and am loving SongU.com! Thank you all. It is super to feel part of a helpful community of like-minded people, as it is easy to feel isolated in my small town in this small country at the end of the world!"
-- Radha S., New Zealand

-- Tom C., CT

-- Scott S., NJ
"I have to tell you I am LOVING SongU.com. The Feedback sessions are a blast. All the instructors are so different in their approach, yet always sincere in their effort to help - whether with a kick in the pants, or a hug for a fragile ego. I'm finding the Pitching option is a great motivator; it's kind of like having a deadline every month. The Tech course with Fett, Lyrics with Sara, Melody with Jai, a Private consultation here and there when I think I'm getting close, connections for pro demos: I'm thousands of miles away and have never felt such support for my craft."
-- Van P., Canada
"As a publisher, I receive a lot of songs in the mail. I have found the best advice is to join SongU.com. This is one of the best resources that I know of for aspiring singer/songwriters. Thanks for putting it all together. I love the courses and the feedback I receive from your coaches."

-- Ricardo S., Mexico

-- Claire U., TN
"I am really enjoying the classes I've taken, as well as chat sessions with others. I've found that since I started with SongU.com, I've increased my creativity and production of writing."
-- Joyce S., PA
"Pre-SongU.com, I attended pitch nights in NYC and wondered what the secret was to having a song chosen by a publisher. Post-SongU.com, I've attended two recent pitch nights and have had 4 out of 6 publishers walk away with my songs in their pocket. When one publisher complemented the lyrics, I told him that was thanks to #168, 1666, 1667, 506, 2368, 2537, 2240, 2062 AND Helen. I think the guy thought I was giving him my secret lotto numbers. Little did he know, I was. Thanks to each of you for your investment in our dreams, and for introducing us to this amazing community of kindred spirits."
-- M.E. M., NY
