How to Make a Professional Song

The music creation process has often been seen as daunting by the novice musician yet ask any professional musician and they’ll tell you that feeling barely goes away with time! This is because every project is different and requires a whole new mind-set each and every time. Sure you will begin to work faster and improve your workflow but every record is a new learning experience. Below is a typical song making process used by modern day professionals. Opinions and methods differ so don’t think this guide is cast in stone but it is rather there to point you in the right direction. One of the best things you can do when making music is to experiment…be it in the composing, song writing, mixing, or mastering stages. Creativity is a must.

Now you might be wondering why so much music sounds alike today and above it states experiment. This is because you want to take your musical risks wisely. Over the centuries music listeners have subconsciously become accustomed to music that follows a general pattern. Note it says “general” because there are many hit songs that have broken the “rules”. Typically you will hear a song with an intro, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus, outro. Also notice how during the chorus you will likely hear the “hook” which is the part of the song you’re likely to hum or catch onto first. Most songs are made or broken by their hooks so when it comes to building one make sure it stands out!

There can be many or few stages to making music depending on your preferred workflow. Below is a tried and tested method used by many today.

For music making, it is generally necessary to have a keyboard to input your music if you aren’t going to be recording every instrument live. It is important to learn an instrument as it’ll be indispensable to a music maker unless you are a sample based producer or maybe rely on session musicians to translate your musical ideas into the computer. Using a midi-keyboard for creating music is great because it gives it that live/human feel that doesn’t make a record sound so mechanical!

These days, people typically start off with the beat, finish it off, send it off to the singer and then re-work it when the singer sends back the vocals…what a process!..but if done write it can be very rewarding.
