She mentioned that she was jealous of songwriters and thought it must be much better than writing, because we get to work together and in groups. “Sure,” I said cautiously, “but it isn’t always a great time. It can be like working on a group project in school.” My mind fl[...]

Songwriting with Reba McEntire’s MasterClass

This course was actually called "Choosing A Song," which is an important distinction.
