Chords are fundamental to every song. The selection and progression of chords tell the story even without the use of words. The right chords are the basis for every successful song.

In module 1 of the Songwriting Academy you learn 3 different ways to write catchy chord progressions. You will finally understand how chords work and at the end of the workshop you will be able to write chord progressions effortless in any key.

During the workshop you develop the chords for 2 full songs including Verse, Pre-Chorus and Chorus. (1 song in a major key, 1 song in a minor key) Wanna be the first to know about upcoming workshops? Subscribe to Academy News

Amir, you simply give so much more than just your professional musical know-how, simply by yourself! I wanted to say thank you again for the second songwriting workshop I was able to take part in on February 6th! I enjoyed that you give the participants the space to get involved or ask questions. Also I am inspired by your passion as a musician and your statements that we, as songwriters, touch other people, want to share our uniqueness with each other - they speak to me from the heart! I will always be happy to recommend you.

“Man findet in den Workshops ganz leicht heraus, wie viel Potenzial zum Songwriting in einem steckt. Das zusammen mit der Theorie, die Amir so unkompliziert vermittelt, war für mich ein toller Wegbereiter, den ich jedem ans Herz legen kann.”

Amir ist sehr strukturiert und bringt selbst die komplexen Dinge einfach und mit sehr viel Charme und Sympathie bei.
