Here are some things songwriters have said about
"12 Steps to Building Better Songs”

Steven Bloom Steven Bloom

I love your books. I'm on my second time. I now realize that I probably would have never finished any of my songs if I hadn't purchased your books (sounds like I'm creating your ad copy) anyway, I'm now following your sequence in the building of song structure. I'm having more fun than I've ever had in my music... Thanks again.

Your new book really packs a punch. This is no leisurely stroll. Like a great lyric, every line counts. In "12 Steps," instruction and inspiration are synonymous. Although I've only read it through once, I've already picked up several ideas I want to try, especially in the area of writing music. My next time through will be much slower: step by step by step.

Rob Sadler Founder & CEO of XpeedStudio

I just started participating in a songwriting class at College of the Redwoods in Northern California. The instructor is Joseph Byrd and the textbook is your "12 Steps to Building Better Songs." It is a great book and a great class. I have many little scraps of paper with song ideas and your book finally helped me know what to do with them. It is great to constantly pull back to the central idea and move out from there. I like the fact that it"s no big deal --just try again and something better almost always comes.

Charles & Twila Bennette Founder & CEO of XpeedStudio

Twila and I are trying to squeeze in as much songwriting as we can. Work has been crazy as usual for us both, and there just seems to be so little time. But the guidelines and strategies we have learned from your class, your books, and the consultation with you have really helped us to make our writing sessions a lot more productive, and so we are able to make a lot better use of our songwriting time when we do get it.

Steve Bigler Founder & CEO of XpeedStudio

Thanks so much for your time and help. Perhaps the most valuable thing you did was give me a great deal more hope for my chances in this lonely endeavor.
