Quick Overview

Songwriters idea book 10320


Songwriters Idea Book by Sheila Davis 10320. Hard Cover. 240 pages. In her first two books, Sheila Davis classified the major song forms   and enduring principles that have been honored for decades by America's foremost songwriters. Those books have become required reading in music courses from NYU to UCLA. In The Songwriters Idea Book, Davis goes one step further, giving you 40 strategies for designing distinctive songs. You'll break new ground in your own songwriting by learning about the inherent relationship between language style, personality type and the brain. You'll go, step by step, through the creative process as you activate, incubate, separate and discriminate. You'll learn to use the whole-brain techniques of imaging, brainstorming, and clustering. You'll expand your skilled use of figurative language with para grams, metonymy, synecdoche and antonomasia. You'll be challenged to design metaphors, form symbols, make puns and coin words. And, you'll learn how to prevent writer's block, increase your productivity and maintain your creative flow. Over 100 lyrics from pop, country, cabaret and theater songs illustrate the "whole-brain" songwriting process.
