Learn to Write Better Lyrics!

Pat Pattison, a veteran songwriter, has taught many of Berklee College of Music's best and brightest how to write truly sweet lyrics.

This book will help you handle your lyric structures more effectively. Showing you how to take control of your lyrics by honing your creative process, this essential guidebook reveals the secrets of how to become a naturally incredible lyricist. By studying examples of famous songs, you will learn to combine the techniques of the pros into your own lyric-writing craft.

Pat Pattison has been teaching lyric writing and poetry at Berklee College of Music since 1975. He played a central role in developing Berklee's one-of-a-kind songwriting major, the first complete songwriting degree offered anywhere. Doctoral work in philosophy at Indiana University and a Master of Arts in Literary Criticism gave him the knowledge and inspiration necessary to concentrate on the art of lyric writing. In addition to his work for television and film, plus numerous clinics and workshops, Pat writes monthly articles for Home and Studio Recording magazine.

The exercises and tools in this book will help you eliminate some trial and error and start writing better lyrics more quickly and efficiently.
