Songwriter Gary Burr is offering a video songwriting course that explains his Northstar method.

The Northstar approach says that each song should have a central idea and clear focus that is reinforced, or pointed to by each of its lines. In a series of three free introductory videos, Burr also discusses ideas such as adding images and words that help the listener be in the moment and experience what the writer is talking about. He describes this process by saying the song is a house and the lyrics are the“furniture” placed inside each room.
“Be sure to write the way people talk,” Burr also notes, “and don’t settle for a predictable melody.”
