- Have you ever wanted to do more on the business side for your songwriting career, but don't know where to start? Hi, I'm Cliff Goldmacher, and if I've learned anything in the 30 years that I've been a working music professional, it's that it's not just the music that matters. You have to take care of business. In this course, I'm going to give you 31 tips, that's one a day for a month, to help you take care of the business side of your songwriting. I'm going to break down what can often feel like an overwhelming set of tasks so that they become manageable. And you can take care of them with just a little effort every day. I'll be dividing these tips into five areas: organization, song demos, marketing, networking, and the music industry. Whether you've already written lots of songs and don't know what to do from here or you're a new songwriter who isn't even sure where to begin, this course will have something for you. I'm looking forward to giving you some simple, actionable tips to help you kickstart the business side of your songwriting.
