How It Works

Meet online with a recording artist in our live Zoom classroom each week!

• Find out what type of songs artists are looking for in a live Q&A.

• Get your writing assignment for the week.

• Hitmakers Clay Mills & Marty Dodson give detailed instructions on how to approach your assignments.


Submit a “Song Start” to the artist later in the week.

• After learning about the artist, you will submit a "song start" to the artist.

• Song starts can be a written chorus... lyric, music, or both!


Each artist chooses a winning "song start" and schedules a co-writing session online with the writer.

• The artists will choose their favorite "song start" from the class .

• Each week the artists explain why they chose their winning "song start."

• All 3 artists will schedule a co-writing session with the writer who submitted the chosen "song starts!"
