Are you a songwriter? Interested in writing songs?

Well, I’m delighted to recommend a new book by my friend and uber worship blogger David Santistevan,  “The Worship Songwriter: A Step by Step Guide to Crafting Your Best Worship Songs”

For many years I’ve been teaching songwriting all over the world and I’m always interested in resources for that purpose.

I love David’s clear, concise writing style, his systematic approach and the book’s clean visuals. It’s a super practical and beautiful e-book.

These ideas are inspiring and the “step by step” approach will kick start your creativity.

What I found particularly helpful is the content pathway that takes a writer get from “idea-in-my-head” to “finished-song-that-communicates-well”.

Q: How do the “bonuses” work?

A: If you purchase “The Worship Songwriter”, you will receive a zip file which includes:

  • The Worship Songwriter Ebook (full color PDF)
  • The Worship Songwriter Audiobook* (mp3)
  • The Worship Songwriter Journal (full color PDF)

The most exciting part of this book though is the possibility of an online community for worship songwriters. Check out the Worship Songwriter website to see if/when that launches.
