Product description


Gavin Fitzgerald, The Songsmith - The Magazine of the Songwriting Society of Australia July 2018:

"…Overall, Monica’s “Songwriter’s Book” is a brilliant introduction to songwriting for the novice songwriter, or for children who’d like to start songwriting.” “…It takes real talent to simplify a complex topic such as songwriting for the real novice, or child just starting, but Monica has done this superbly. It’s an easy read, with easy exercises and direction, super teaching! You can have your “Songwriting For Dummies”, your songwriting workshops, etc, but to start someone off I couldn’t think of a better way than this book. Then they can go on further as they progress..."

The book's strength lies in the simplistic and accessible approach, and that it is liberating detached from traditional music theory, which may otherwise discourage someone who would like to try to write their own material …
