Songwriting Courses For Kids and Adult Beginners

Enrolments are open for the next term of I Heart Songwriting Club's fully online and mentored songwriting course for kids and adults.

These courses were created by the team at I Heart Songwriting Club for people who wanted to write songs, but didn't know where to begin. The program is aimed at absolute beginners and will give them the tools, support and confidence to write their first 10 songs - complete with bite-sized video lessons, real time mentorship and community.

“I just wrote 10 songs in 10 weeks - my first songs ever!! It’s life changing. A few times I had tears of wonder and joy when I listened back to my song. I am now, at 50, a song writer. No one showed me how as a child. They have now. I have a goal to write 50 songs in 50 weeks.” - Adrienne (Brisbane)

“All of the lessons and changing themes allowed me to learn the skill of songwriting quickly and write what I felt at that time. My favourite part was receiving the encouraging constructive feedback from my mentor. I tried to take that feedback and use it in my next song. I even wrote a song for my dad during the week of Fathers Day which he loved. It was an amazing experience, I enjoyed all of it so much! I can’t wait to do it again!” - Emma L. 12 year old songwriter (Ipswich)

APRA AMCOS members offer: enrol in I Heart Songwriting Club’s Songwriting Course and receive 20% off. That’s a huge $100 savings!
