The 6 Steps to Write a Song
Nowadays, more and more people want to write their own songs and create music. Whether it is for fame, money, personal interest, or a dream, technological advances have brought more convenience, allowing anyone to create their own music at home and share it on the internet to spread it around the world.
But how exactly is a song born? Today, let us tell you the six steps to creating a song!
1) Set the theme
Setting the theme can be said to be the most important part of creating your own song. What story does your song want to convey, what emotions does it contain, and can it resonate with the audience? These must be established at the beginning of the creation process. Here are some directions to consider when setting the theme.
Genre: Do you want to create a fast or slow song? Is it dance music, rock, ballad, jazz, or a style with ethnic flavor?
Audience: Is this song for children, adults, lovers, or the elderly who have walked halfway through their life? Different age groups have different preferences for types of music.
Purpose: Is this a love song, a song celebrating friendship, a theme song for advertising to promote a brand, or a song created for a specific holiday (such as New Year's)?
After setting the theme, you can start drafting the lyrics! The creation of lyrics and music is often not done in one go, but completed gradually.
If you suddenly have inspiration at a certain moment, such as while taking a shower or before going to bed, and a lyric or melody comes to mind, you can immediately record it on your phone or use your phone's recording function to record the melody.
Here, we suggest that when writing lyrics, you can first write down a few key words and then slowly expand on them. When the song has a "prototype", you can officially start writing lyrics and composing music.
3) Writing lyrics and composing music
In fact, "writing lyrics" and "composing music" are two different processes. Some people like to write lyrics first and then compose music, while others prefer to compose music first and then write lyrics. Of course, some people can create the melody while writing lyrics at the same time. There is no right or wrong order, the most important thing is to find the way you like.
The creation of a song is similar to telling a story. It doesn't necessarily require fancy language, but the lyrics should be able to touch people's hearts. For example, "Fairy Tale" and "Mouse Loves Rice", although the lyrics are very simple, can resonate with the public.
There are also many ways to compose music. Generally, musicians will use a simple piano or guitar to produce a demo. However, if you don't know how to play any instruments, it doesn't matter! You can use the melody of the song recorded in clear voice, and then find a professional musician to arrange the melody for you (produce accompaniment).
4) Production and arrangement
Many people do not understand the difference between "composing" and "arranging". Simply put, "composing" tells everyone how to sing the song, while "arranging" is to produce accompaniment (karaoke).
Arranging can use live instruments or virtual instruments. Nowadays, almost any instrument (such as piano, guitar, violin, and drums) can be electronically simulated. For non-professionals, it is difficult to distinguish between live instruments and virtual instruments.
Live instruments have unique tones and can give people a real and delicate feeling, but they are more expensive. Virtual instruments have a wider range of tones and sound effects to choose from. Although they don't sound as real, they are cheaper to produce and easy to post-process. Many songs on the market combine live instruments and virtual instruments to achieve both cost-saving and realistic audiovisual effects.
After arranging the accompaniment, all you need to do is record your beautiful singing voice!
Regarding recording, you can choose to record at home by yourself, or seek professional recording studios and recording teachers for assistance. The advantage of finding a professional recording studio is that you can use professional recording equipment to record. The recording teacher can also guide you in real time and immediately rerecord flawed parts. If you choose to record at home, you can also consider investing in some simple recording equipment, such as microphones and sound cards, so that the recorded songs can be closer to professional level.
6) Post-production mixing
The final step in creating a song is to mix and process the recorded audio. Mixing serves not only to remove imperfections such as breathing and saliva sounds, but also to adjust the singer's voice and the volume of the accompaniment, making it pleasing to the listener. In addition, the mixing engineer will use various mixing tools such as EQ (tone adjustment), compressor (equalizing volume), and reverb (adding echo) to make the entire song sound more three-dimensional and professional.
Of course, if you performed poorly during recording, such as singing off-key, you can still rely on the "million-dollar mixing engineer" to save the day.
The above is the complete process of creating a song! Creating a song is not complicated, nor does it necessarily require a lot of money. In this era where everyone can pursue their dreams, we encourage you to take the first step bravely and create your first music work!
