Your Story, Your Song

3-Week online CrashCourse – Replays available

Starts November 11th

We are super excited to announce the “Your Story, Your Song”  CrashCourse! 

We have assembled a teaching staff of Grammy winning storytelling songwriters who are going to teach you their secrets for turning their stories into Grammy winning songs. You will get to pick the brains of Masters like Tia Sillers (I Hope You Dance & Blue On Black) and Marcus Hummon (Only Love, Born To Fly). And you’ll  learn how to most effectively tell the stories you have lived or the stories in your head. You’ll learn to connect with and move your listeners.

This class will bring you the highest level of songwriting instruction anywhere. There are limited spots so click the button below to find out more and register for our last course of 2019. You won’t want to miss it!

Cheers, Clay & Marty

“Excited to announce my first major artist cut on Anderson East’s new Atlantic Records Album. I’d also like to say I took some advice from Songtown’s class with Clay Mills and wrote ‘what the artist didn’t have.’ I’m sure that worked in my favor!” ~Jon Decious (Nashville, TN)

“I recently attended the SongTown Master Class, and I have to say it was the single best learning experience in my quest to become a professional songwriter.” ~ Jonathan Helfand (New York, NY)

“I have done many songwriting workshops in the past, and the SongTownUSA Master Class has been by far the best. You really cannot put a price tag on the experience of every week meeting with a hit songwriter and getting their direct feedback and suggestions!  Plus I now have awesome new cowriters. I hope everyone will apply for the next class.”    ~ Kate Smith (Grove Heights, MN)

“I find these class’s are like ‘icing on the learning cake’. If you are looking to take your songwriting to the next level then the songtown crash courses are invaluable. As an out of town writer, the ability to gain access to tips from real time pro’s with knowledge that is both current and commercial has helped me to really fine tune my writing. I can tune in to the webinar’s at a time that suits me and replay if required. Awesome classes, please keep em coming!”  ~Vanessa Selwyn (Albury, New South Wales, Australia)

“For any of you wondering about a Master Class: I am just finishing up a Master Class hosted by SongTown. As to be expected, lots of great songwriting advice and work assignments. What surprised me though was the camaraderie that developed between us all…. how we encouraged and spurred each other on. Each week I had to stretch out further, and work on improving the quality of my writing. as the bar was lifted higher. Amazing what a deadline does. As an end result, I am more focused; and best of all, I have established relationships with my classmates and we are now writing together. Some hit songs in the future? Well….stay tuned.”    ~ Lucy LeBlanc (White Rock, British Columbia)

“The SongTown classes I’ve taken have really helped me consider my skills and zero in on the important aspects of writing. I don’t waste as much time as I used to. And I’m learning to look at my lyrics objectively. I think the classes are a great investment!” ~Soce Marie (Nashville, TN)
