How to Lose Your Ego (so You Can Be a Better Songwriter)

Tips to Lose Your Ego to Improve Your Songwriting

I can’t tell you how many songwriting pitches I’ve attended where someone has said, “there is no room for ego in songwriting.” In these same pitches, there is always someone who argues with the publisher after their song was rejected. They try to explain WHY they included two bridges (“you need both to tell the story!”) or to explain that they KNOW the song isn’t finished ([...]

Your Root Chakra and Music

If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started!    Our final chakra is actually known as the first chakra: the Root.

Your Third Eye Chakra and Music

Your Crown Chakra and Music

If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started! Your crown chakra is located at the top of your head. It is associated with the color “white” (which I know isn’t an actual color) or violet. Generally, it’s considered to be the area of focus for spirituality and connection with the divine (whatever you consider the d[...]
