SongTown Online Songwriting Courses let you train with top pros!

In this class…


Four songwriting Pros (Clay Mills, Marty Dodson, Jason Duke & Victoria Banks) battle to have YOU on their team… and when the dust settles, you will have a pro songwriter coaching you through the entire process of turning your song idea into the best song it can be! This includes idea development, song mapping, melody development, and more.

Each Pro will work with a small group of writers throughout the 3 weeks. So, THIS is your chance to get hands-on professional coaching while having a great time learning how to write better songs faster!

Spaces are limited since the pros will be giving feedback on your song each week, so don’t miss out!

How It Works


• This is a fun-filled online class where, much like the show “The Voice,” our songwriting pros will battle for YOU to be on their team! Only they won’t be coaching your singing, they’ll coach your songwriting! The pros this year are SongTown co-founder Marty Dodson & Clay Mills as well as hit writers Jason Duke & Victoria Banks.

• The first week you’ll submit 3 original song titles you’d like to write, and the pros will have a shot at choosing one of your song titles to coach you on. The winning judge then nabs you for their team.  Once you’re on a team, your songwriting Pro will guide you each step of the way to help you write your best song.

• Classes are easy to view and participate from your computer, laptop, or smartphone.

• All classes are available to watch on replay if you miss it live. The video is accessible for 3 weeks after your class to review at your leisure.

• Post your assignments in the forum and discuss with your classmates.
