What is the SongU.com philosophy?
The guiding philosophy at SongU.com is that education empowers you as
a songwriter and increases your chances to succeed at meeting your goals. That is why our
Full-Access Membership tuition includes access to
all our multi-level
Instructor-Led and Do-It-Yourself (DIY) courses for no additional cost, including an entire track of
and mentoring sessions that meet several times a week. Rather than simply throwing money into demoing songs and then pitching them, we focus on courses, coaching, and co-writing to help each writer make every song the best it can be – and to make sure that they are writing at a level that
is competitive with other successful writers. Just to be clear, SongU.com is not a pitching service. Pitching is simply part of our educational program. We offer pitching opportunities to our members for no additional cost because we
feel that learning to pitch songs, dealing with rejection or having success is part of the
educational process. We believe one of the reasons our
members have been successful with pitching at SongU.com is because of our focus on the writer, their education and making each song the best it can be.
