An excellent and essential primer for the aspiring tunesmith, Songwriting: The Words, the Music & Money offers authoritative tips on everything from basic song forms to the hard facts of succeeding in the music business. In between, veteran songwriter Dick Weissman shares his insights into composing effective lyrics, melodies and hooks, as well as detailed breakdowns of every musical style from folk to cabaret to hip hop. The first book on the topic to be accompanied by a CD covering all the musical concepts explored within, this is an invaluable resource for anyone engaged in the serious study of songwriting. No knowledge of musical notation is required. Dick Weissman is an Associate Professor of Music Business Management at the University of Colorado, and the former National Education Coordinator for the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
