How To Write a Song

How To Write a Song - Actually, I cant differentiate writing a song from making music and lyrics. Song writing sometimes do not need instruments or accompaniment. Folk songs like "Bahay kubo", "Leron-Leron Sinta" and "Give Peace a chance" by John Lennon which do not have any chords to it.

In writing a song, the following ingredients are needed:

Song Writing Ingredients
  1. Melody
  2. Lyrics
  3. Subject (Object)
  4. Message (Optional)

  6. Others; if any
Parts of a Song
  1. Introduction
  2. Stanza (I, II, II)
  3. Refrain
