What comes first: Music or Lyrics?

Have you ever wondered what SHOULD come first when writing a song?

Wondered if you should have a melody and chords all laid out prior to starting the lyrics…

Or if lyrics should be the bedrock and then form the melody and chords around the lyrics?

Well, today we have the pleasure of hearing from one of our coaches here at Rooted on this topic… Jonathan Maiocco!

Jonathan is one of our piano and songwriting coaches here at RMC and has some great insight into how to avoid getting stumped with this question before you even start writing.

So, take a few minutes and check out the video below. Take it in, let us know what you think and see if this process can help you get started writing today!
