Numerous Ways to Get Your Songwriting Talent Noticed
One way to get noticed is to use your talent by entering a lyrics contest. Many are available now on the Internet. One unique songwriting contest in particular allows you to enter in a lyric and compete for a spot in which an actual song is in the making to help fight the battle against cancer. The song is called “Oceans of Love” and plans are underway to have it recorded by a well-known recording artist once all the lyrics have been chosen.
Some lyrics contests might allow you to enter lyrics and music you’ve written while others might allow you to enter the lyrics of the song without music.
If you have lyrics and a great tune but no sheet music, there are many programs available online today that will write the sheet music to your song for you with minimal effort. You’ll just enter the key notes into the songwriting software and the program actually writes the notes for the sheet music.
Also, you can ask a musician you know and trust to put music to your words. Don’t give up just because you don’t have the music. Your song could be a hit if you strive to get it recognized.
