Accurate, Precise and Easy to Read
on December 19, 2013
I bought both of Robin Frederick's 'Shortcuts to Songwriting' books at the same time (this one and the one on hit songwriting). I was a total novice at songwriting and wanted to improve my lyrics and my husband's music so that we could pitch and sell to TV and film opportunities.
I can honestly say that no other books in the genre (and I have a few) come close to the usefulness of these 2 books. The shortcuts are specific, clearly written, incredibly relevant, and easy to put into action. My lyric writing and my ability to 'arrange' my husband's music has been 100% influenced by them, and I would attribute any success I might (hopefully) have in the future to the advice in these 2 books of Robins, a short Berklee songwriting course, and to the help and advice of my fellow songwriters at Taxi.
Incredible value for money.
Thank you Robin.
