We'll give you the prompts to start with.

No worrying about what the heck to write about. Throughout the 5 days of the challenge, you’ll be given daily song prompts. Your mission? Write the heck outta that prompt and finish the song!

 

You'll get feedback from friends.

A PRIVATE FACEBOOK GROUP TO SHARE SONGS WITH

Our private challenge Facebook group has been an incredible catalyst for our songwriters - you get feedback, share songs, make cowriter connections, and grow as a songwriter with a group of your peers. It's a blast!

What the songwriters are saying:

Participants in past challenges have gone on to record albums, have other artists cut their songs, even win contests. All because they joined the 5 in 5 Song Challenge and proved to themselves they were capable of writing more songs, better songs, and faster!

Challenge dates: March 25-29, 2024

How the Challenge Works:

 

1. GET THE PROMPT EACH DAY

Each day, I'll post a prompt inside the Facebook group in the wee morning hours (Nashville time). Come to the group and check out the prompt each day - this is what you'll be writing from.

 

2. WRITE YOUR SONG - FAST!

Write your song based on the prompt! The goal here is to write quickly, with little editing. Push yourself. It will be hard, but that's why this is a challenge. Give yourself an hour, 30 minutes, all evening, or just your lunch break - but whatever you do, finish that song!

 

3. POST YOUR SONG IN THE GROUP

Come back to the Facebook group when it's all finished and share with the class! The 5/5 group is a wonderful place to get vulnerable, receive feedback, and feel the rush of sharing a brand new tune.
