- Apply by sending mp3s and/or lyrics of 2 songs that you feel best showcase your personal writing style to email@example.com. Songs must be received by mid-night Sunday, Jan. 12th, 2014. If you are primarily a lyricist you are also welcome to apply. Remember, we are looking at the writers’ potential and not necessarily for crafty polished songs. Classes are limited to 8 students to insure proper attention to everyone.
- Once you have been accepted into the SongtownUSA Master Class Program, you will receive a syllabus outlining what material will be covered each week and instructions on how to gain access to our video classroom.
- Each week you will attend a 90 minute songwriting class led by a Master Class Series Pro. You can login on your computer or laptop from the comfort of your own home, or anywhere with a good wi-fi connection.
- Each week your Master Class Pro will offer valuable insight into the craft of songwriting and give you an assignment for the following week. When you return to class the following week, your song assignment will receive a positive, encouraging critique outlining what is working and what can be improved.
- Classes are full participation so you will work hand-in-hand with your songwriting pro and fellow attendees for a fun learning experience.

I have done many songwriting workshops in the past, and the SongTownUSA Master Class has been by far the best. You really cannot put a price tag on the experience of every week meeting with a hit songwriter and getting their direct feedback and suggestions! Plus I now have awesome new cowriters. I hope everyone will apply for the next class. ~ Kate Smith (Grove Heights, MN)
For any of you wondering about a Master Class: I am just finishing up a Master Class hosted by Clay Mills. As to be expected, lots of great songwriting advice and work assignments. What surprised me though was the camaraderie that developed between us all…. how we encouraged and spurred each other on. Each week I had to stretch out further, and work on improving the quality of my writing. as the bar was lifted higher. Amazing what a deadline does. As an end result, I am more focused; and best of all, I have established relationships with my classmates and we are now writing together. Some hit songs in the future? Well….stay tuned. ~ Lucy LeBlanc (White Rock, British Columbia)
“With Clay Mills’ honest critiques and guidance, I saw major growth in myself and all students who followed his instructions. Again, thank you Clay, it truly was an honor.” ~ Nelson Moore (Hendersonville, TN)
