The Secret to Becoming a Great Songwriter
Everyone thinks to get on the radio you need to sound just like the radio. They’re wrong.
I’ve worked in the music industry for over 30 years as a publisher and songwriting mentor. I know the way to the top is by standing out. The thing is, it’s hard to find your voice on your own.
It’s much easier with a guide.
There’s nothing I find more rewarding then helping songwriters say what they need to say. I love listening to their songs, understanding what they are trying to accomplish as writers, and then showing them how to get there. There is no one-size-fits-all approach because everyone is different. I tailor my approach to you.
Ultimately, I am in this business because I love songs, and I don’t want to hear the copycat songs. I want to hear your story and the song that only you can write.
"During my sessions with Suzan, I submitted a song on the last day, that Suzan said was my very best lyric. I submitted that lyric to American Songwriter and won their lyric contest. I was written up in the magazine and they sent me a beautiful PRS guitar.
If you're looking for feedback on your songs in a friendly, yet straight forward tell-it-like it is mode, that will show you where the bar is for songs on the radio, and help you to identify the spots where improvements can be made on your songs, then this is the class for you."
"Through working with Suzan, I have discovered a clear voice in my songwriting and my artistry (which has also translated into my everyday life.) I think she has an amazing gift with her ability to make the song with best it can be while still maintaining the integrity and uniqueness of the song and the artist.
Suzan will take you to the next level in songwriting. Be prepared for complete honesty due to the fact that she cares about what you have to say and about songwriting. The most valuable thing you could do for your songwriting is to see how Suzan breaks down a song."
"Suzan has an insight to songs and lyrics that runs deeper than the vast experience she has to offer. She has the ears of a fan, an artist, a publisher, all wrapped into one, and the rarest gift of all is that she is able to verbally articulate the REASON for her pleasure and or dissatisfaction with a song.
Suzan is for people who want to improve, on any level. And I mean any level. I don’t care if you’ve got #1 records or if you are just starting. If you exist and you write songs, Suzan can help you get better- period."
