Course description

Welcome to Your Enlightened Guide To Lyrics & Songwriting !

This course is for beginners, as well as anyone in search of a new age approach to lyric and songwriting. My name is Adam! Allow me to give you a brief intro to my course:-) What is ENLIGHTENED Lyric-Writing and how does this approach differ from standard songwriting? Enlightened Lyric-Writing is about seeing songwriting as a creative process you allow yourself to go through. -No goals, we set a daily practice. -Allow yourself to connect to your flow state where writing becomes easy and effortless. -Recognize it as a Holistic System that includes structure, rhyming, and all other connected inspiration you need. -Validate everything that comes through as a part of the process. -Let go of insistence of what you think it might or is supposed to be. -Start with what is easy and obvious to get the flow going. -Your creative energy builds as you keep moving.

This is my practice that I developed over my years of songwriting. Writing lyrics is a process of personal growth and your lyrics grow as you grow. There is no magic formula for lyrics, YOU are the magic and you activate it when you take action, accept what comes out, and do it for its own sake of enjoyment no matter if it is for fun or professionally. This is a process which you can thoroughly enjoy ever aspect. Writing/creating is an experience that expands you beyond yourself in the moment and when it is finished it has served you in that process, and then that finished song will go on to serve those who listen to it and they can be inspired. So it all starts with you. I am on this journey with you, so reach out if you would like to speak with me. I am available anytime for personal sessions if you feel the call to connect with me personally.

I am excited and honored as you join me on this amazing, challenging, and exciting journey.
