    "Wow Danny i have to say that was one of the most eye opening exercises i've done! This course very clearly outlines how to emphasize important words, how to avoid making words sound what they are not meant to and by pausing in between specific words a melody can come easy. Pointing out how ascending chords can make a song uplifting and descending bass lines and chords can make a song sound somber opens up another whole world for me to write lyrics. In the exercises, looking at what i have already set music to, i can see where i have effectively used this information and techniques and where i have not. So much room for improvement. As i do not play an instrument and rely on loops to create a song, i can see where i can write with the music already in mind, by using the techniques to make it clear to a composer, all the points i want to convey and the feeling i'm looking for. Thank you so much Danny, wonderful course." -- Elise F., NM (3/14/2018)
