Billy Seidman did and he's sharing it all in his new book, “The Elements of Song Craft.” Billy’s songwriting career includes staff positions in both New York and Nashville at RCA music publishing, Warner Chappell Music Publishing, SONY/ATV Tree Music Publishing/Nashville, Carlin America Music Publishing, and Criterion Music Publishing companies. Songwriters he’s trained and collaborated with include Bebe Rexha, Rachel Platten, Grammy Winner Carlos Escalona (Marc Anthony), and Grammy Nominee Chris McClenney (KHALID), as well as major labels artists, The Voice, American Idol contestants, and over a thousand songwriters, producers, and artists.
Billy has worked extensively as a studio musician, guitarist, music producer on countless records, film scores, commercials, and Broadway shows. He’s a member of the songwriting faculty at NYU, Steinhardt Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions, The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, and a consultant for Berklee NYC/The Power Station. He lives in New York City.
Seidman teaches an affordable virtual 4-lesson course (appropriate for 12 and up) as well as private Zoom lessons that make a great gift for your favorite aspiring songwriter, your talented child that may be boxed out of after-school sports and leisure activities, or anyone who has always had a dream to write a beautiful song. He reports, "Many of my older students say it’s something that's been on their bucket list for years."
With after school activities and sports being canceled due to Covid concerns, this is a great time to gift the talented child, relative or loved one that has always wanted to write a song. Affordable lessons are a class series of 4 done virtually are offered: https://www.songartsacademy.com
