1. Story: Discovering What Story You Want To Tell

Before a single note is played or a line is written, it’s essential to identify the story you want to tell. Is it a love story, a tale of friendship, or perhaps a journey of self-discovery? Knowing your personal details provides a framework for the song, guiding the lyrics, melody, and even the choice of instruments.

2. Lyrics: The Heart of the Song

Lyrics are the heartbeat of any song. In a personalised song, they serve as the ink that writes your story on the canvas of melody. Choosing the right words is like choosing the right brush for a painting. It’s an art form that requires skill, emotion, and a deep understanding of the subject.

3. Melody: The Soul of the Song

4. Instruments: Adding Layers of Emotion with Professional Musicians
