  1. My goals for this month are to start posting regularly on this blog and to get in contact with demo studios to make connections for our members.

  2. Hi, Sara! My goal is to write several commercially viable songs so I can enter Songdoor again this year and actually have a chance at placing.

  3. Great work.. As it’s been said, “a great song isn’t written, it’s re-written!”
