THE 5 ELEMENTS OF A SONG

After 30+ years of instruction and collaboration, Tony has condensed the art of songwriting into 5 elements that every great song requires: Idea, Melody, Lyrics, Chord Progression, and Continuity. Watch Tony’s trailers covering each of the 5 key elements below, then subscribe to Teachable to gain access to his full collection of video lesson plans.

1 : IDEA

The inspiration for the song; how to recognize THE moment! How to capture and manage the idea!

2 : MELODY

The importance of melody; writing pretty melody vs complimentary melody; melody’s historic role in longevity!

3 : LYRIC

The power of words, learn to love words; what is “rhythm of lyric”; what is trite lyric, why tense is important.

4 : CHORD PROGRESSION

Learning to navigate chord progression, regardless of musical proficiency; understanding chord progression basics.

5 : CONTINUITY

Learn to recognize continuity; how to correct a lack of continuity; layered vs filtered elements of songwriting.
