This Course is so well made by Steve Glazer Some things which I liked about this Course 1. The Instructor is so passionate & Humble 2. It discusses the basics of music 3. As a Grade 5 music theory student, I had no idea about how to write a song but this really helped me understand Music in a Practical way 4. Later in course, we discuss Chords and Scales in both Guitar & Piano then we discuss Lyrics 5. This Course serves as a Basement if you want to build your skills in songwriting
