Writing Better Melodies

Writing Better Melodies



While it’s easy to spot a lyric that’s cliché, identifying why a melody fails to stand out from the rest takes a little more experience. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to write a great melody, however, the problem arises when the vocal melody sounds as an afterthought superimposed on the chord progressions.

Best melodies are memorable and easily singable by themselves. In this workshop, you’ll learn what elements to focus on to make them such, including note choices, rhythm, contrast and the motifs. You will also be challenged to rewrite the melodies you came up with, while shifting focus on different aspects of the melody lines.

As a result, you will walk away with new techniques and experience that you can apply in your songwriting.

Prerequisite: Basic understanding of musical theory – chords, scales, notes.
