- Have you ever noticed that even though songwriting is something you're passionate about, you can find yourself discouraged and lacking the motivation to keep at it. Hi, I'm Cliff Goldmacher, and since I figured out how to keep myself motivated to write songs for the past three decades, I think I can help. In this course, I'm going to cover a variety of ways that you can keep yourself motivated and focused on what's important when it comes to your songwriting. With these mini tips, I'm going to give you the songwriting motivational equivalent of one-a-day vitamins to inspire you and remind you why you do what you do. I'll be breaking down these tips into three areas. Songwriting pointers, career tips, and also big picture observations that should help you keep everything in perspective. Whether you've already written lots of songs and feel like you're running out of gas, or you're a new songwriter who's simply overwhelmed. This course will have something for you. I'm looking forward to giving you the motivation you need to keep putting great songs into the world.
