"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.

-- Danny B., GA
"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
"Hands down, SongU.com is my go-to resource!"

Slow DSL and creaky computer overcome, thanks to your advice."
-- Sister K., ME
"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."

-- Silje H., Norway

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!"

-- Tammi M., CO
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

-- Lonnie G., WA
"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
"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."

"SongU.com was the catalyst my career needed. My online coach(#1663) set up a meetings for me, resulting in an affiliation with Seasac.

-- Brian C., MD
"I wanted to compliment SongU.com on something I've come to see as a real hallmark of everything you do: you always manage to line up instructors and coaches who so clearly love the work they do, and are so positive in the way they communicate with SongU.com members. Although your coaches are straightforward about realities of the business, I've never experienced anyone who comes across as negative or discouraged or bitter. Thanks!"

"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."
