  •  
Writing songs in five easy steps is a piece of cake.
So easy it’s a piece of cake!

People often ask me “What’s the easiest way to write a song?”. I think these five steps are about as easy as it could possibly get. It’s a piece of cake!

1. Pick a writing prompt from here.

2. Come up with characters and a story.

3. Create a song sketch.

4. Sing lyrics to a backing track and change them until you’re happy with them.

5. Record yourself

This will take you from nothing to something. You will have a song. Now reflect on it and decide what’s good and bad about it. Find help with lyrics. If you want to write your own music. If you’re happy with your song pick another prompt and write another.
