Songwriters Resource Network provides educational tools to help songwriters find success in the music business.

The actual work of promoting your music and marketing your songs, however, is up to you! No one is likely to undertake the demanding job of marketing songs for songwriters who lack a basic understanding of how the music business works.

Songwriters must be willing to market their own songs to be successful.


Talent and developed songwriting skills are necessary to achieve success as a songwriter, a lyricist or a music composer. In addition, educating yourself on the music business, building a support network, and learning ways to market your songs are equally important.

Take time to look around this website. Study articles that relate to your specific interests in songwriting. Learn about song publishing and the music business. Take advantage of the many opportunities to network with other songwriters, musicians, lyricists and music composers.

Then reach out to people who can help you. Find opportunities to show your songs. Let people know your songwriting goals. Listen to suggestions. Learn from feedback you receive.

If you want to be a professional songwriter, invest as much time and energy to songwriting as you would to any other profession. After all, it's no easier to become a songwriter than it is to become a teacher, mechanic, dental hygienist or pilot. Each requires applied study, aptitude and commitment.

Finally, whether you write songs for your own personal enjoyment or for professional ambitions, your musical voice and your songs are uniquely your own. Only you can give them life.

"If music be the food of love, play on." William Shakespeare
