Great Reads – 15 Excellent Songwriting Books

songwritershq recommended readingThere are reams of great songwriting books out there. It was tough, however I’ve done my best to select fifteen of my favorites. I’ve chosen excellent books about the craft, skills building, and the business of songwriting. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to study ‘the science’ of songwriting to become successful. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Write, write and re-write!


About Jeff Lodge

I have been a songwriter pretty much all my life, since Grandpa Mac gave me his drum set (ya, you try writing a song on an old Slingerland 5 piece). I learned guitar, played around with piano, and fell head first into a fervent passion for creating music. I wrote a ton as a kid, with limited skills and knowledge. When I 'grew up', I studied the craft of songwriting and recording. I crave to learn more. It's my goal with SongWritersHQ to provide valuable content that will educate, entertain, or the songwriter community. I include myself in that community because if I don't learn something about this wonderful craft every day, I'm unfulfilled. I hope SongWritersHQ is as fulfilling for you as it is for me. Jeff

    Are these peicies copywrited, or does the buyer get full rights to the music?

      Hey Ron,
      They are copyrighted publications, books actually. The author will get full credit of course.
      Thx for your comment,
