Question by Yahoo Answerer: How To Become A Professional Songwriter?
Okay, I want to become a professional songwriter, so I could write songs for the big artist in the industry right now! I want to know what steps should I take? Also, can you please tell me how other big songwriters made it and what they did, and what I could do? One more thing, If I know someone who is extremely close to John Legend, do you think it would be a good idea to ask if he could submit my lyrics to him, and mind you that someone is a very close friend!

Q1- There are several ways you can go about this. You can get accredited as a songwriter with a local/national organization, you can go to university and get a degree in music or you just start writing stuff and submitting it to the industry. Try getting an internship or placement with a singer/songwriter. REMEMBER: Talent is more important than accreditation.

Q2- No way. A huge singer like John Legend may turn you down and then the smaller singers won’t want anything to do with you.
