Don’t Make the Same Mistake that
99% of Music Producers Make

I see it over and over again — when a producer can’t figure out a solution for writing memorable music, melodies & chord progressions, they go back to doing exactly what they shouldn't do: tweaking EQs & compressor knobs, finicking with some reverb, or worse, not producing at all and blaming the music industry for being jaded, corrupt and backward.

Ugh. That’s the exact opposite of what you should be doing.

Don’t get me wrong, mixdowns are important, but people don't connect with EQ and compression. They connect with stories. They connect with vulnerability. They connect with honesty.

In short, they connect with great songwriting.

Chord progressions. Melodies. Hooks. That's songwriting — it's the missing piece.

It's why artists like Bon Iver can bring millions of listeners to tears and become a multi-platinum recording artist with sub-optimal production quality.

It's why Porter Robinson, who doesn't always have the cleanest mixdowns, is able to focus on conveying powerful emotions through dynamics and great songwriting.

It's why Avicii was known as a musical genius and whiz-kid — not because of his technical prowess, but his ability to turn anything into melodic, songwriting gold.

I'm sure you're thinking, "Well, that sounds great, but how do I do that?" Well here’s the problem…

Your current game plan of hacking music theory isn't going to cut it. Shortcuts will only get you so far. In fact, shortcuts will lead you to writing tracks — not songs.

ARE YOU WRITING SONGS? OR TRACKS?

Tracks have a life-span of a few months but then? They are easily forgotten.
Songs are timeless and memorable. They sound just as good (or better) years after release.

Tracks get filed into your DJ catalog and playlists, never to be heard again.
Songs get shared with all of your closest friends are catalysts for connection, community and memories.

Tracks jump on the current trends and recreate whatever is popular now.
Songs focus on evoking emotion and connection. Genres don’t matter more than the idea.

3 Songwriting Mistakes
Producers Are Making in 2019

Mistake #1

You rely solely on midi packs for composition.

Midi-packs and midi-tools like Hookpad or Captain Chords can be very helpful. In fact, we recommend using them all the time (they can be great for inspiration or to spark some creativity). But if you start to rely on midi-packs for composition you are only robbing yourself of what you're capable of...

After all, when you rely too heavily on existing midi it can be a real crutch. Worse, it can actually hinder you from progressing your songwriting skills at all.

Real songwriters can fall back on their understanding of music theory, and that leads to more confidence & better writing. And, if I'm being honest, it leads to more fun in the songwriting process because you've gotten better at songwriting. Let's face it — we all enjoy things we're good at.

Without music theory, you are drastically limiting your own ability to make commercially viable, smart and interesting sounding music.

Mistake #2

You prioritize mixing & engineering.

Trust me, I get it. Dialing in some reverb is super satisfying. EQ-ing that vocal to sit right in the mix is downright orgasmic. A perfect kick-bass relationship? Forget about it. It’s better than sex.

But people don’t connect with reverb, EQ or compression. They connect with stories. They connect with vulnerability. They connect with honesty.

What does that mean? Composition. Chord progressions. Melodies. Arrangement. Lyrics. They connect with songwriting.

And nothing is more important than the song. No, not even your kick drum trumps that. If you are prioritizing the engineering, you are focussing on the wrong things in 2019. Engineering and production are meant to aid in telling the story of the song, not define it.

And look, the proof is in the pudding. This mindset shift leads to results like this:

As an artist a few years back, this is what happened when I focussed on songwriting as opposed to engineering across two different projects. My music garnered over 4 million plays in 4 months, compared to just over 2 million in 4 years.

Songwriting is what keeps the listener coming back. Songwriting is why we can't get a song out of our head. In short, songwriting is everything.

Mistake #3

You spend too much time copying your favorite artists.

When I first started producing music, I figured I should look at what successful artists were doing and then do the same things.

  • Skrillex used Melodyne for his vocal chops? I can do that!
  • Audien used 8 layers for his supersaw chords? I should also use 8 layers!
  • Avicii used a specific formula of stable and unstable tones to write melodies? I’m on it!

It’s such a simple concept: take what’s been proven to work and apply it to your productions. Easy peasy, right?

The problem is that we are so caught up copying others that we forget: one-off tips don’t make a difference.

Producers want the glory and the sugar-high that comes with quick tips, when what they really need is a structured, fundamental understanding of the entire process. They need a system.

Otherwise, you can expect results like this:

We all know that producer that get's highly technical and even brags about the parametric mid-side compression he just pulled off. And yet, his music still struggles to resonate with anyone.

That's why you could have a terrible mixdown. You could have below-average sound design. Hell, you could even have distorted masters...

...But if you are able to construct memorable chords, hook-worthy melodies and beautiful arrangement like the best of them? Then you can create an emotional connection with your audience. And that’s what matters the MOST.

  • Kygo had minimal sound design and forgettable mixes. But we fell in love with his melodies.
  • Porter Robinson saw the most success after his Worlds album, which even he admits isn’t well mixed.
  • Illenium combined original future bass production with incredible songwriting, emotion and dynamics.
  • Loud Luxury rose to the top of the charts this year with simple, sparse production and effective songwriting.

In 2019, it’s all about songwriting. There are simply too many talented artists, engineers, sound designers, and mixers to differentiate yourself without incredible songwriting.

Can’t I just learn all this stuff on Youtube? Or read some books?

We actually recommend using Youtube AND reading books on top of taking our courses.

But if learning songwriting, music theory, composition & arrangement was easy, then everyone would do it and everyone would be successful at it.

If you value your time and want to streamline the process of making memorable, professional sounding songs (something that can take years, maybe decades to do on your own) then misguided, disjointed information from unvetted sources all over the internet is NOT the answer.

If you want results now, this course will help. But if you don’t value your time, and would prefer to go it alone, that's also completely fine.

Isn’t songwriting all innate talent & creativity? How can you teach that?

The human brain is an amazing thing. We all underestimate what we are capable of, especially when you’re working with a team of smart, forward-thinking artists who just happen to be really, really good at teaching.

Look, you might not become the next Paul McCartney or the next Justin Timberlake, but your songwriting skills will drastically improve. Your music will evoke more emotional responses, turn more heads and hopefully, both reach and gain more fans in the process.

This all sounds great, but why should I listen to you guys?

Fair question. Here are some things to keep in mind: our music has been streamed over 50 million times. We've licensed our music to mega-brands like Netflix, Equinox, MTV, Toyota & Target.

We've signed originals & remixes with labels like Universal, Sony, Island, Ultra, Armada, and EMI/Virgin. We've done official remixes for artists like Beyonce, Tove Lo, Nick Jonas, The Chainsmokers, Laidback Luke, the Neon Trees, and loads more.

In other words, we're not just some random "no name" producers on the internet trying to teach music production. We live and breathe this stuff.

Plus, for this course we brought in the big guns — PJ Tracy, an Emmy Award Winning composer, to double-triple check that our strategies, theory, and fundamentals were sound and thoroughly fool-proof.

Who is this course for?


The Songwriting Matrix IS for you if:

  • ...You are focused on the long term success — and you understand there are no such things as quick fixes/tips that will make a big difference in songwriting.
  • ...You are looking for a comprehensive and extensive guide, covering beginner, intermediate and advanced songwriting techniques.
  • ...You want to compose memorable, unique and impactful music that connects with your listeners through chord progressions, melodies, creativity & arrangement.
  • ...You've already worked hard, but feel like you've gotten as far as you can on your own and are ready for an extra push to take you the rest of the way.
  • ...You have tried a bunch of different approaches to songwriting in the past but haven’t found a method that works well for you just yet.

The Songwriting Matrix IS NOT for you if:

  • ...You want to ‘hack’ your way to great songwriting and are always on the lookout for shortcuts and trying to side-step real effort.
  • ...You don’t want to work hard and can’t commit to a few hours a week to both education & practice.
  • ...You are just looking to read or watch the material, but not implement into your songwriting. Please go away if this is you! 🙂

3 Songwriting Myths You NEED to Know

MYTH # 1

Learning music theory will make you LESS creative.

What I Thought: Music theory will mess with “the magic” and stop me from thinking outside the box. The best artists don’t care about music theory, they are naturally born gifted and talented.

The Truth: This myth was spread because learning music theory can be difficult at first. But eventually, it will become a tool that serves, feeds and replenishes your creativity because it will allow you to confidently communicate your musical ideas.

Even Paul McCartney was musically illiterate (in the traditional sense) during the early Beatle years. But as he progressed, he realized all the unlocked potential he was missing out on. By choosing to dive deep into theory, he was able to reinforce his talents, eventually becoming one of the most successful songwriters of all time.

MYTH # 2

Songwriting is ALL about writing lyrics.

What I Thought: Why would I spend time learning songwriting as a music producer? Songwriting all about writing lyrics, crafting stories and singing melodies.

The Truth: Lyrics are only a small part of songwriting. In fact, NPR Music even published an article that quantitatively suggested that lyrics are secondary in importance to the actual music. After all, by definition, music without lyrics is still music, but lyrics without music is poetry. 

Are lyrics important? Of course. But songwriting is so much more than simply lyrics. Being able to create that emotional journey through the context of a song (chords, melodies, progressions, arrangement, etc.) is the real way a producer sonically connects with a listener.

MYTH # 3

The MORE you write, the better you get at songwriting.

What I Thought: Songwriting will take care of itself. If I just write a little every day and stick to a deadline of one song per week, I’ll eventually

The Truth: Writing more might mean you are reinforcing the same errors in your process. No matter how prolific of a writer you are, you are doomed to keep repeating the same failures if you don’t learn the fundamentals from the ground up.

The best songwriters identify their weaknesses, put aside their ego and work at improving their skill sets.
