Quote to Inspire:
Someday at Christmas man will not fail, hate will be gone and love will prevail.
Someday a new world that we can start with hope in every heart.
- songwriters R. Miller/B. Wells.
The song Someday at Christmas
was a hit for Stevie Wonder in 1967 and for Lizzo in 2022 (Note, it's an AAA song form).
- Thoughts for December. Musician and songwriter Moby said, "Music is one of the healthiest forms of transcendence and magic." This lies in music's ability to touch us deeply and tap into our emotions. Music can connect generations and create commonalities that go beyond cultures and even language. Songs have the power to make our lives and experiences more profound. Remember, you all have that power. Keep up the great work!
Wishing you, wonderful creators, hope, peace, joy, and the magic of music throughout this holiday season and beyond!
Holiday Schedule. We will be taking a break from Live sessions from December 21st through January 3rd. Private Sessions may continue to be scheduled as availability permits. You can also continue to submit songs to be evaluated, but the coaches may require extra time for completion due to holiday travel and so on. Pitch opportunities will continue to be updated.
General Registration Reminders: You may have 2 Active Live songwriting feedback courses (FDBK) at one time but can add a 3rd if there is still an open spot 24 hours before the class starts. Check your Activity page live songwriting course schedule in case someone cancels during the week and a seat opens up. New to SongU? Welcome! Check out the FAQ Quick Start Guide for an overview of how to begin.
Welcome International Members! When selecting live courses, please consider those that are GMT-friendly, scheduled between 1-3 pm EST on weekdays and Saturdays for live songwriting feedback sessions. If your time zone presents challenges for other hours, remember that you can still register for any class of your choice. Simply submit an MP3 and/or lyrics to your instructor with a note, even if you're unable to attend live.
