Welcome to Songwork

What is Songwork?

We are a songwriting education site featuring unlimited access to video lectures by nationally-acclaimed teachers including Steve Seskin, Pat Pattison, Andrea Stolpe, Steve Leslie, Jimmy Kachulis and Bonnie Hayes. The principles covered here can be applied to all genres of songwriting. Learn about story development, song structure, melody writing, prosody, phrasing, point of view and much more. Here at Songwork, we believe when it comes to writing songs, there are no rules - only tools.

If you’d like to see short previews of some Songwork videos, check out our YouTube channel and get a taste of what we have to offer! If you’d like to create a free account, register here and receive access to three full length Songwork videos.

What does Songwork offer its members?

  • Unlimited access to all videos on the site.
  • The opportunity to work 1-on-1 with a Songwork instructor on a per-session fee basis. Visit the Individual Critiques section for more information.
  • When members have questions about something a teacher says, they can send an email to questions-about-content@songwork.com and one of our knowledgeable staff members will respond with an answer.
  • As the site grows, we will be expanding in a variety of ways. New instructors and videos will be added on a regular basis so there will always be something new to enjoy.
  • *Note: Our videos are not yet available on Apple mobile devices because Apple does not support Flash. We hope to be compatible with Apple devices soon. To get updates about this, email Diana at customer-service@songwork.com.
