The Songwriting Academy empowers you to write your own songs and take your songwriting to the next level.

In 4 full-day workshops (two modules per day), you will learn to apply the fundamentals of music theory in a practical way and implement your ideas quickly and effectively.

The Songwriting Academy (Level I) comprises a total of 8 modules, which can be booked separately.

A 2-week rhythm allows you to stay in the flow and at the same time gives you enough time to repeat the theory and to work out the songwriting tasks.

A restriction to 8 participants allows a personal promotion of your talent and an individual care of your progress.

What musicians say about the Songwriting Academy

In order to constantly improve our offer, we ask our participants after each workshop for a written feedback and their criticism, because we consider criticism as a way to improve ourselves. Below is a small selection of feedback we received from Songwriting Academy participants and individual workshops.

"The workshops as well as Amir with his infectious enthusiasm for the songwriting itself, have suddenly made it easy for me to retrieve my creativity, which I have lost in everyday life. The song ideas came from all alone, where you usually spend hours sitting in front of a blank sheet of paper. You can easily find out in the workshops how much potential songwriting has in one. This, together with the theory that Amir teaches so easily, was a great trailblazer for me, and I would recommend it to anyone. "

Sophie FreudenbergBerlin

"I especially like the relaxed and informal atmosphere that makes it easier to learn and the variety that your workshops offer. You have a very empathetic way of dealing with people, you never feel pressured. In addition, the fun factor is always a big part of working with you. You give very helpful advice, support your students in everything and are always friendly and patient. Since the workshops I believe more in myself and my lyrics, better solve writing blockades, experimenting with chords and my voice, and overall have more self-confidence in songwriting."

Ich wollte mich noch mal ganz herzlich bedanken, für den bereits 2. Songwriting Workshop, den ich bei dir am 6.02.2016 mitmachen durfte! Deine ruhige, zurückgenommene Art und dass du den Teilnehmern damit den Raum gibst, sich einzubringen oder Fragen zu stellen, empfand ich als sehr angenehm und wohltuend! Mich inspiriert aber auch deine Leidenschaft als Musiker und deine Aussagen, dass wir als Songwriter andere Menschen berühren, unsere Einzigartigkeit miteinander teilen möchten dadurch selber berührt werden – sprechen mir aus dem Herzen! Amir, du gibst einfach so viel mehr als nur dein professionelles musikalisches Knowhow, einfach durch dich selber! Ich werde dich immer gern weiterempfehlen.

„Du willst Musik machen, aber hast nicht Musik studiert? Das schaffst du nie.“ Solche Sätze musste ich mir des Öfteren anhören, weil ich „nur gerne“ singe. Dann hab ich durch Zufall im Internet den Workshop von Amir entdeckt. Einen Tag bevor der Workshop startete, war ich richtig aufgeregt. Wie wird das wohl? Wen treffe ich dort? Muss ich mir jetzt nochmal die Musiktheorie aus der Schule ansehen, damit ich verstehe, was Amir mir sagen will? Und am Ende habe ich mir zu viele Gedanken gemacht: Der Workshop hat mir genau das Handwerk gegeben, auf das ich gewartet habe. Leicht verständlich bespricht Amir mit den Teilnehmern die Grundlagen der Musik, die für Popsongs nötig ist. Und dass, ohne niemals den Bezug zur Praxis zu verlieren. Neben der Theorie werden aktuelle Bespiele aus der Popmusik analysiert und danach geht’s auch schon ans Eingemachte: ein Workshop soll schließlich nicht nur Wissen vermitteln. So sind innerhalb von zwei Tagen erste Skizzen für Songideen entstanden, zu denen ich allein wahrscheinlich nicht gekommen wäre. Natürlich braucht das etwas Übung, aber auch in der Hinsicht hat Amir mir meine Scheu nehmen können. Der Workshop war für mich somit ein voller Erfolg!

Sehr empfehlenswert, leicht verständliche Theorie, sehr gut erklärt, gut gewählte Song-Beispiele, Spaß bei der Anwendung in der Praxis. Mit Leidenschaft für die Musik! 🙂 Herzlichen Dank.

Katrin HinzBerlin

The academy is Higly recommended! Given from not just a „teacher“ but an excellent songwriter and musician himself. Plus Amir Rahimzadeh is an incredibly generous person who knows the ins and outs of the art as well as the art of meeting the creative struggle! Get in on his workshops.

"Amir is an incredibly friendly, open-minded person who is always awake, fulfilling the needs of his musicians and a master in creating a creative, harmonious atmosphere. In his workshops Amir always meets the different needs and qualifications of the students. No one is over- or under-challenged, and what has already been learned is experienced anew through a changed perspective. Practical songwriting tools motivate you to learn and try it yourself, and his open nature makes you feel like you can always contact him after the workshop.

Lukas Benjamin EngelBerlin

Gut strukturierte und sehr umfangreiche Workshops. Mich hat vor allem Deine Leidenschaft für die Musik und für das, was Du unterrichtest sehr inspiriert. Vielen Dank.

Dom

Ein super Kurs um als Musikanfänger einen Einstieg in die Musiktheorie zu bekommen. Besonders das Skript ist sehr übersichtlich. Ich fand es gut, dass du Übungsaufgaben eingeschoben hast. Nur durch’s machen lernt man 😉 Danke nochmal für den Workshop.
