Lindsey teaches you everything she knows in this class, transforming the way you create music. Learn her fun and creative approach to playing violin and leave the class with a new set of ready-to-use violin and arranging skills.

Song Structure & Breaking Rules

Despite the fact that most songwriters use the same song structure, JAX finds lots of ways to diversify within this structure. In this lesson she’ll walk you through how she uses emotion to change the melodies in a chorus or the number of beats in a single measure.

Jax's Writing Process

JAX says her success in writing new songs really depends on a room’s energy from the people she is working with artistically. She explains the importance of who you surround yourself with while writing.

Writing "Ring Pop"

When writing her song, “Ring Pop” JAX says it came from a place of honesty and realizing that even though she was broken, she has all she needs. In this lesson she walks us through her process for writing the song in the midst of a crippling pandemic. 

Simplicity in Your Chorus

For many, the chorus is the most memorable part of a song. JAX recognizes this and explains how she tries to make each chorus she writes simple and connectable.

Tips For Writing Lyrics

Lyric writing that is done well certainly elevates any song. In considering the writing process, JAX offers a bit of advice to help you in your work during this lesson.

Writing "Come Home to Me"

Song titles and musical lyrics can sometimes have multiple interpretations depending on context. In the case of “Come Home to Me,” JAX explains her thought process for deciding on the song title.

Writing a Conversational Verse

Musical lyrics can sometimes be ironic in nature, tongue-and-cheek, rather than straight forward. JAX breaks down her thoughts on making the lyrics conversational.

Start Posting on TikTok

For many, it can be difficult to find the time and creative energy to create content for social media platforms while simultaneously fulfilling responsibilities at work or school. JAX explains the importance of finding the balance & why putting in the time to posts is valuable.

TikTok Growth Hacks

Learning how Tik Tok’s algorithm works can be a daunting task. In this lesson JAX explains that the completion rate of a video is an important aspect of what gets your content into the “For you” feed. 

Using TikTok as a Songwriter

Compared to other social media platforms, Tik Tok has some unique features that are valuable to songwriters. Learn from JAX, how Tik Tok helped highlight her specific gifts and more.
