-- Steve B., CA
"A word of thanks. I was having trouble accessing audited classes (endless "buffering"). You suggested letting the class download while I did something else. I had it going during prayer time, and when I came back a couple hours later, the hour-long class played without a hitch. Thanks for the advice. Slow DSL and creaky computer overcome, thanks to your advice."
-- Sister K., ME

Though we're both pretty independent writers, we've left the door open for future co-writes. Thanks for the match-up. Thanks again for creating SongU.com and continually moving forward."
-- Bill D., WA
"In under 6 months, I got a cut, totally because of SongU.com's classes and website. Well done SongU.com."
-- Robert D., CA
"Thank you for the referral to Coach #6732. It worked out perfectly. The Coach knew what the song "Sacraments" was about and offered guidance in melodic contrast, which I need to work on, and insights into song structure if the song should ever be recorded. Thank you!"
-- Sister K., ME
"A friend of mine introduced me to SongU.com. Quite frankly, I don't know what I would have done without it. This site, Sara, and Danny have been a Godsend. Thank you so much for believing in us enough to start SongU.com. You're wonderful!"
-- Tina T., TN
"So very excited to report that we just signed our very first single song contract!...I can not fully express what SongU.com means to me! I, like so many other writers who live outside of the music centers am truly blessed to have found SongU.com. It IS one of my primary connections to Nashville! Thank you Sara, Danny, and Martin. It is an incredible thing that you have built in this community we call SongU.com!"

-- Kelly M., NJ
"Thank you again for connecting me with my current coach. I was lucky enough to be invited to his songwriter's retreat in Texas. It was a real "write-up" situation for me, and with the help of what I've learned through SongU.com, I was able to hold my own with the big boys."
-- Ed W., TX
"Another excellent session! I am so grateful to Lisa Palas for being willing to spend her time with us and share pearls of wisdom to make us better songwriters. They are so invaluable!"
-- Donna S., MD
"Thank you for the encouragement. Thanks for all you do for us aspiring writers. You have a great site. I don't know how I got along without it."
-- Randall J., AL

-- James H., IL

-- Michael S., PA
"Learning a lot. SongU.com is excellent. Doing my first feedback course tomorrow. I'm excited!"

-- Angela P., MI
"Just wanted to say thanks for allowing me to have hope for publishing my songs in a practical way. As a taxi driver, I can't devote too much time per week on my SongU.com education, but I am constantly amazed at the opportunity you guys give."
-- Brad H., OH
"SongU.com offers incredible opportunities for songwriters at all levels, from education and coaching to pitching.

-- Barbara W., TN

"SongU.com was the catalyst my career needed. My online coach(#1663) set up a meetings for me, resulting in an affiliation with Seasac. I signed my first publishing deal, and currently write with some of the biggest hit-makers in Nashville. I almost quit the business, and now I'm moving to Nashville. Thanks Coach 1663 and SongU.com."
-- Brian C., MD
"I can't get enough of all the information available on the website. Learning so much, just loving it."
-- Alex M., NY
"I did want to let you know what a valuable resource SongU.com is, and how much I appreciate all the opportunities you have created here for aspiring songwriters. Thank you so very much."
-- Inglath C., VA
"Living far from Nashville, I knew that a great online music education site would be important to my development as a writer. I researched and joined several music communities, but was never satisfied until I found SongU.com For me, it's the best music education site out there."
-- Germain B., ON
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
"Hands down, SongU.com is my go-to resource!"
-- Brad Y., ID
"These coaches you have do great evaluations. I've had quite a few songs evaluated from other places in past years, and SongU.com simply blows them away. Thanks for selecting great people. I mean that!"
-- Ben C., OH
"As a songwriter who lived in Nashville in the 1990's and reached pro status then moved away to pursue other interests, I still felt I had something to say. In the 21st century, networking and doing your business as much as possible online is the most cost effective way to go. SongU.com does this for the novice weekend hobbyist all the way to the working pro. I have benefited enourmously from being a member. I would highly recommend all writers and composers to join."
-- Anthony C., TN
"SongU.com is great. I love the classes, the feedback sessions, and the networking. I have met several cowriters through SongU.com. I have even signed 2 single song publishing contracts as a result of pitching opps on SongU.com."
-- Christina M., WI
"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!"
-- Denise W., FL
"I'm kind of excited. I had pitched a song to Adam Price and he is interested in cutting two of my songs. A royalty contract has been offered. I will keep you posted on the progress of my very first cuts. If anything happens, it wouldn't have without Songu.com."
-- James J., ID
"I know for sure I have found a supportive community at SongU.com. I really can't tell you how much it has helped."
-- Melanie J., KY
"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
"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
"Thanks. I just wanted you guys to know SongU.com has made a difference in my songwriting life!"
-- Barb W., TN
"I enjoyed listening to the transcript of the Big Reveal. Though my song was not picked, I loved listening to the thoughts of the pluggers. Thanks."
-- Mark D., NE
"You can fight your way through the songwriter's school of hard knocks or you can attend the friendly SongU.com. It was an easy choice for me."
-- Andrew W., OH
"The analysis of my song by the instructor really helped me to understand my strengths and weaknesses as a songwriter. I also understand now that songwriting is a much more complex profession than I previously thought."
-- Ricardo S., Mexico
"SongU.com is a wonderful resource for songwriters. I love it."
-- Meaghan M., WA
"SongU.com has been like having family in the music business. During my first year with SongU.com, I've achieved 3 "Best of" songs, a publishing deal, and a music placement.

-- Arnie D., CT

"A great place to let your career get started!"
-- Jason G., MD
"I love the classes! One can learn a lot in just a little time. I also love the fact that everyone seems so close! Instructors and students recognize each other in chats and on the discussion boards."
-- Jamie M., MO
"Thanks for your vision and desire to make top-notch songwriting resources, courses, and opportunities available for songwriters worldwide at the click of a mouse!"
-- Jenny H., NE
"With three kids and many commitments, I would not be able to fit this into my life if it weren't online and if it weren't flexible. Thank you for this site and for what it has opened up in me again."
-- Kelly R., WI
"In the few short months I've been a member of SongU.com, I've gotten better feedback on my songs and better pitch opportunities than from any other site I belong to.

-- Claire U., TN

-- Carol C., KS
"I recently got some tv airplay in a far away eastern European country. I still think itís a fluke, but itís my first tiny bit of light at the end of a very long tunnel. I would say that SongU.com has a very positive effect on me. You guys are great."
-- Gavin P., GA
"Now that I've found SongU.com, I'm so excited I have the opportunity to learn from a great group of teachers! I've never had the opportunity to have somebody teaching me songwriting on a daily basis. SongU.com does that in the easiest and most convenient way. Thanks so much for putting all this together."

-- Mark E., U.K.
"Last night I attended the final session of Craig Bickhardt's latest series and I just had to let you know that it was most enlightening. Craig has such a great understanding of the industry and always tells it like it is. I feel like he's really pulling for the beginning songwriter, giving us as much information as he can to help us along. I will attend every educational class he hosts from now on. That alone is worth the price of SongU.com membership! Thank you so much for having him on staff."

Thanks so much!"
-- Tony C., TN
"It is truly a pleasure to be a part of this community, I've
connected with some lifetime collaborators and friends, and have learned
so much! Thank You!"
-- Shirley G., TX
"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 really appreciate your feedback, advice, and professionalism. You folks are actually pretty awesome."
-- Jim P., MT
"I have just had a professional demo made of my first song and have 5 more ready to demo. When I joined SongU.com, I had absolutely no idea of the songwriting craft, even though I 'wrote' songs. Now, thanks to your education and evaluation service, I am at a place in my songwriting where I never dreamed I could be. I wanted you to know how grateful I am that you have been there to guide and support me in my songwriting journey. I live in a remote part of Australia miles away from any physical songwriting community. SongU.com is my community and you have made it possible for me to start realizing my dream of being a professional songwriter."
-- Lorraine C., Australia
"Since I joined SongU.com and have taken their courses, my songwriting has dramatically improved. If you want to learn the craft, this is the place! I've even signed a single song contract, had 2 songs signed with songpluggers, and placed 3rd in the Billboard World Songwriting Contest!"
-- Barbara W., MS
"I am really enjoying using SongU.com. It's fantastic! I am delighted that I've been given the opportunity to use the site through entering the UK Songwriting Contest. The modules are enlightening and very informative; I have learned so much already, and it is really helping me to develop my songwriting.
It's also great to be able to work on the modules at my own pace and learn online.
Thank you for such a brilliant website!"
-- Anna S., United Kingdom
"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
"You all are the Greatest! Seriously amazing! I just called with a question/issue and it was exactly like having 'kinfolk' available: someone that deeply cares about you, works with you, listens, and helps. WOW! I really appreciate the support and everything SongU.com offers to develop and support me!"
-- Ed C., KY
"I was blown away at my private session with emmy award winning songwriter Michele Vice-Maslin. She is an amazing teacher, coach and mentor.

To have access to such excellent heart-centered industry pros is a priceless gift that SongU.com offers. I am so impressed with the website, the courses, the quality of teachers, topics, and excellent customer service! If I had to describe my experience in one word, it would be WOW! This was clearly created by people who love music, care about songwriters, and have great connections in the music industry! Thank you SongU.com, you truly ROCK!"
