How It Works

 

The information below explains how our courses work, depending on whether you choose a certificate course or an unmarked course

 

What makes us different

First of all, thank you for considering The Songwriting School for your learning. We know that you have a choice of providers when it comes to choosing online music courses and so we would like to explain what makes both our songwriting courses and the experience of learning with us different.

1. We believe in giving you instant access to your course - no waiting for term times to start.

2. We believe in giving every student their own personal tutor, no matter the course they sign up for.

3. We believe in hiring the very best experts in their field to teach at The Songwriting School - that's why every tutor has been through rigorous interview and vetting procedures and each has a wealth of experience worth sharing.

4. We believe that if you are studying hard for a certificate, what arrives should not look like something you could print at home.  That's why we have fully education standard certificates complete with hologram and advanced security features; indeed it is something worth putting up on your wall.

5. We believe that incorporating different learning styles is essential to help you use and retain the information you learn about.  That's why our courses are designed with videos, audio examples, text explanation hover-overs, downloadable resources, practical exercises and traditional text based reading materials.

6. We believe that no matter what course you are on, you should be able to benefit from attending any masterclass in any subject area to improve your overall knowledge. That's why we not only have our tutors make regular video blogs for all to see, but offer masterclasses for Songwriting School students to attend.

7. We believe that networking is vital to your future success.  That's why we have a student area where you can advertise yourself through your own profile and interact with others on forums and through our fully featured internal messaging system, to help you make new contacts.

8. We believe that learning is just the beginning and that's why we are constantly negotiating special deals for our students with other companies, which can be viewed in your student area.

9. We believe in value for money and we have priced our courses to give just that; with options to make the same course cheaper if you are not studying for a certificate.

10. We believe in a school/family ethos and that's why our logo is designed with people at the center, because it is you and our tutors that make The Songwriting School what it is and what it will grow to become.

Once again, thank you for considering us for your learning.
