I’m Gary Burr. That’s right. I said it. I went from sitting in Connecticut dreaming about writing songs to being inducted into the Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame. Everything I learned along the way, I’m willing to share! (actually…sell.)
I’m offering an online course that presents, in a logical and fun way, all the lessons I learned in the last forty years that helped me become a hit songwriter for Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Ricky Martin and many others. Along the way I have also learned a lot about origami. If that interests you at all I’ll throw that in.
This course will help you move your songwriting to the next level (I suggest the escalator) and avoid the common pitfalls that keep you from writing the best songs you can.
You'll be more likely to get your song heard and taken seriously by industry professionals and artists.
Raising the quality of your writing will give you a better chance of attracting publishers and artists to your songs. I will also teach you how to wrap your cd’s in aluminum foil since publishers are attracted to shiny things.
IMAGINE writing better melodies . . . better hooks . . .better verses. . .
IMAGINE getting yes's instead of no's
IMAGINE writing songs that are good enough that you can make a living from them
IMAGINE there’s no heaven…oh wait….
How to have better ideas when you start the song
How to come up with better titles
How to work with cowriters
How to find the cowriters you need
How to edit and revise your older songs to make them more commercial and better to pitch
And how to DRESS for SUCCESS. Or at least how to dress. Tying shoes is a bitch.
I’ve taken everything I know and learned in songwriting and organized it into bite-sized nuggets (yum) of hard won wisdom. (okay…THAT doesn’t sound delicious). Most of these nuggets you can watch in less than 10 minutes. Micro-nuggets, as it were. In a few minutes a day. Click. Learn. Repeat.
The course has video lessons you can watch again and again. Exercises that will strengthen your songwriting muscles.
You’ll also get the opportunity to get personalized feedback from me on the course. Things like “Stand up straight!” and “Don’t write with your mouth full!” Pure gold.
You’ll have 3 months to go through the course again and again. I’ve found that if I’ve made it available for an unlimited amount of time, people will find a way to procrastinate. People are funny like that. And I want YOU to start writing the best songs you can right away.
I teach a live, in-person course where people fly to Nashville to have the thrill of sitting in front of me for a weekend and listening to me yap. I charge $1000. (Worth every penny.) In addition to the fee, they have to fly into town, be away from their families and pay for lodging and transportation.
This online course costs only $497 (worth every penny) and you can do it on your sofa in your pajamas. Or IN your sofa and ON your pajamas. I’m not judging.
I have confidence that if you follow and apply this course, you will become a better songwriter. Here’s the deal: If for ANY reason during the first two weeks this course isn’t working for you, I will refund your money. No questions asked. No feelings hurt. I want us to stay friends. Close friends.
It couldn’t be easier. Actually, I guess it technically COULD be easier. It could be free. But THAT’S not gonna happen.
Just find the button that says “CLICK HERE TO BUY THE COURSE” and that single click will enter you into a world of pure imagination. Also into the world of my secure online shopping cart where you can pay with your credit card and get immediate access to the course.
The course will be released a little at a time over the next couple of months so you don’t get overwhelmed and you can follow along with me and all your fellow songwriters in a supportive environment. A slow, slow drip of knowledge. Like morphine.
Remember: it will be online for three months so you can go over the material again and again until you can fully absorb its principles. It is highly absorbent.
You'll be taken to my secure online payment page where you can pay with your credit card. We went thru all this, didn’t we?
After your payment goes through, you will be given instant access to the course and log in credentials. So fast it will make your head spin. Like morphine.
You can visit the course as often as you want over the next three months.
