stuck producing boring songs?

How everyday artists & producers are using "MODERN Songwriting" to make unique, memorable music without hours of frustrating trial and error

This creative "superpower" allows you to produce incredible music time and time again (without suffering from writer's block)

CREATED BY NIKO KOTOULAS (AS FEATURED ON)

WHY THE NEW WORLD OF MUSIC creation HAS CREATED MILLIONS OF “GENERIC ARTISTS”

(AND HOW TO AVOID BEING ONE )

Let’s face it. 

There has never been this much opportunity in the world of music creation.

The barrier to entry is non-existent at this point. 

ANYONE and their dog can download a copy of Ableton Live, FL Studio or Logic Pro…

Get a $9/month subscription to Splice Sounds…

Download a MIDI Pack (by yours truly)…

And throw a bunch of stuff at the wall hoping it sticks. 

Oh, and here’s an inconvenient fact for any music creator who’s still stuck in the 90’s…

Most of the time, it actually sounds fine.

I mean, why wouldn’t it? You’re using professionally made samples, loops, MIDI, and you’re putting the jigsaw puzzle together. 

It’s like IKEA furniture. Cheap, easy to put together, and does the job just fine. 

But here lies the problem…

When you think of IKEA (or flatpack) furniture…

Does the word “unique” come to mind?

What about “original?”

Or “good craftsmanship?”

Of course not. IKEA furniture is mass-produced, easy to use, and to sum it up in one word—it’s fine.

Is what you want for your music? 

YOUR CHOICE: GENERIC, “FINE” MUSIC… OR UNIQUE, MEMORABLE, TIMELESS MUSIC?

Do you want to make IKEA music? 

Mass-produced. Generic. Common. Fine.

If you do, more power to you. There’s a place in this industry for you. No judgment.

But if you want to make unique, memorable, well-written music that stands the test of time… then read on. We’ve got some work to do.

Because unlike putting an IKEA desk together, crafting an incredible piece of furniture that people envy takes time and skill.

Likewise, crafting a song that stands out among the sea of generic “copy + paste” tracks? That takes time and skill too.

OPTIONS OVERLOAD: WHY YOU CAn't finish any music

I mentioned above that there’s never been a better time to make electronic music. 

Samples are cheap. A fancy new plugin comes out every week. There are endless YouTube tutorials and resources out there. 

But despite this, the new world of music production has ruined the creativity of many.

Most artists have an overload of options, resources, tools, samples, and loops… but no real skill.

They know how to throw a few presets together and make something that sounds okay…

But tell them to write a catchy hook, emotional chord progression, or engaging arrangement—and they’ll get stuck.

Maybe this is you. 

Maybe you can put together a basic loop with some presets and samples. 

But turning that into a song? You’re not sure how.

You see other producers craft amazing melodies, chord progressions and arrangements that keep you engaged from start to finish. 

But when you try to do the same, you get stuck.

So you start a new project hoping for it to be different this time. Of course, it’s not. 

You repeat the cycle.

You start, but don’t finish.

LEARN SONGWRITING AND

ELEVATE YOUR MUSIC

3 REASONS YOU SHOULD LEARN MODERN SONGWRITING

FACT

The spotify age is here!

If your songwriting isn’t up to scratch, you can expect your song to be skipped over, rejected from playlists, and rarely (if ever) added to listener’s personal libraries.

#1

THE "MAGIC" MOMENT

Everyone who listens to music is listening for one thing: the magic moment. They want to hear that hook, melody, chord progression or vocal that just connects with them on an emotional level. You know what else this does? It encourages saves, follows, repeat listens, playlist adds, and more—but it’s hard to create these magic moments without songwriting skill.

#2

EVERYONE'S AVOIDING IT

Most producers avoid learning modern songwriting because they think it’s too hard. Instead, they’ll flock to the latest preset, sample pack, or plugin. Learning songwriting puts you in an elite class of music creators that know how to manipulate the melodic, harmonic, and structural elements in their song in order to achieve the desired emotional effect (without relying on software or sample packs).

#3

IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR CAREER

The music industry is full of opportunities, but there is a skill barrier. If you can write catchy, engaging music time and time again—expect doors to open up. Artists, film companies, agencies… you name it. These people love music creators who can create magic for them or their clients. Even if you don’t want to work on the commercial side, good songwriting skill will elevate your brand and audience like nothing else.

“MODERN SONGWRITING”
VS. TRIAL AND ERROR

Be honest, when you’re sitting down in front of your DAW to come up with a new idea…

What goes through your head?

Do you know what you’re trying to create?

Do you know how to create what you want?

Or are you playing the guessing game.

Modern Songwriting provides another way.

Instead of...

Wasting time plotting random notes in your piano roll hoping to create something that sounds good (but never quite getting there)…

YOU CAN...

Enter your DAW with confidence knowing exactly how to create the chord progressions and melodies that you desire (and save hours of time in the process).

Instead of...

Struggling to turn your 8-bar loop into a full song because you don’t know how to develop and build on an idea…

YOU CAN...

Easily employ modern songwriting tactics to transform your loop into a captivating arrangement. Finally, all those unfinished projects sitting in your production folder have a future!

Instead of...

Dealing with the hopelessness of perpetual writer’s block (never being able to start or finish anything)…

YOU CAN...

Build a consistent habit of writing, producing, and releasing music out to the world.

The trial and error approach only gets you so far.

Learning Modern Songwriting is the path to superior music quality, consistent motivation & inspiration, and confidence.

Because when it comes to creating music, remember...

YOU're just one hit away

I’m not going to kid you: creating a hit song is hard.

So let’s avoid talk about reaching the top 40 and focus on creating a hit in your own category, genre, and circle. 

If you know modern songwriting, your chances of writing a “hit” that connects with your wider audience and the people in your genre are MUCH higher. 

And for many artists, this is all it takes to gain traction. 

You put out a song that just works

Listeners love it. Your friends and family actually love it (not just pretend to love it). Other producers love it. Labels love it. Promoters love it. Playlist curators want it. 

It puts you on the map. 

All it takes is one song, one melody, one hook.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Everything you need to know about the Modern Songwriting Masterclass

1. There are so many online courses & products out there. Why is this any better than the others?

3 reasons. 

  1. It’s taught by a legitimate professional. I’ve been playing piano for two decades, have a ton of work under my belt, and lots of experience teaching others. You can learn songwriting from anyone, but if you want to learn effectively—it’s best to learn from a pro.
  2. It teaches you what you need to know without the fluff. Most music theory and songwriting courses are overly complicated and boring. This is called the Modern Songwriting Masterclass for a reason: we teach you the tactics and strategies that work in 2021. 
  3. It’s affordable, but not “cheap.” Sure, you can purchase a $10 ebook that teaches you how to write a melody. It’s cheaper than buying this course. But if you want something equivalent to a college-level education without paying through the roof, this is it. 

2. What if I don’t play an instrument?

Good news! You don’t need to play an instrument in order to write and produce amazing music.

In fact, this whole course is taught in the DAW. It’s Modern songwriting for that reason—all digital.

Obviously, playing an instrument helps, and that’s why we offer a bundled version of this course with the Modern Piano Masterclass (if you want to take your skill even further), but it is absolutely not essential.

3. What if I’m just starting out with music production?

If you talk to most experienced (or even intermediate producers), most of them will say that they wish they’d learned music theory and songwriting earlier on in their journey. Songwriting is the foundation of good music, and if you develop that foundation early on, it makes everything else so much easier. This is the perfect course if you’re just starting out.

4. What gear/software do I need?

All you need is any modern DAW like Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro, Cubase, Reaper.

Nothing else beyond that!

5. What if I’m not a musical person?

Truth is, there’s not really such a thing as a “musical” person.

Unless you’re completely tone deaf (less than 1 in 20 people), then you can make good music. You can learn songwriting. You can put together an engaging song.

It all comes down to skill development and having the right framework to learn from, which is what The Modern Songwriting Masterclass is.

You don’t need talent. You just need some work ethic and help along the way.

6. What if I need extra support beyond the course?


We understand that even though the course itself is very comprehensive and detailed, you might still have questions. That’s why you’ll get bonus access to our Piano For Producers Mastermind group where you can ask questions, connect with other artists and producers, and level up collectively.

6. What makes it worth the investment?

Here’s a thought experiment for you.

In your head, fast-forward to 12 months from now after taking this course.

You could be producing music that’s 2x, 5x, maybe even 10x better than what you’re making now.

If you could just double the quality of your music in 12 months, would that be worth the investment?

For most people it is. And remember, when you break it down, it’s less than $1 per day. Producers will spend more money on plugins and sample packs that don’t get them the results they want, so we think this is an incredible investment (and will probably raise the price very soon).

7. Is there a payment plan available?

8. Do you have a refund policy?

We do!

You can try the entire course, and if you don’t LOVE it, then I’ll give you 100% of your money back. As long as it’s within 14 days of purchase.

No downside for you. Plenty of upside.
