Hello again for another month! As you can see, we're going through some changes here ... I like to think they're a giant leap forward. From now on, I'm going to basically just include some info here about what the issue contains and this Musing along with the raffle winners. Beyond that, you can pick up the issue online! That'll mean I can make it look the way I want it to without having to worry about all the different email programs out there mucking it up. ;) Yeah. It only took 13 years. ;) I hope you enjoy. And if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them! And I hope, since you're looking at the issue on the website now, that you'll take the time to have a look around there, too. You never know what helpful information you'll find! :)
I also have a question to put to you all. As it turns out, Ed
Teja, the book/services/ reviewer here who has been doing such an
excellent job for me for so long - will be doing some traveling.
He'll be unable to continue to do reviews for The Muse's News and
I can say that I will definitely miss him a LOT. (But I know
you're doing what you want to do, Ed - and that's great! Go for
That does leave an opening though - and I'd love it if someone
who is a regular subscriber and knows this newsletter and cares
about the songwriting industry and the people in it, would take
up the mantle of reviewer. Unfortunately, it's not really a
paying gig ... but you *do* get to keep all the review copies
that get sent your way, after you're finished reviewing them.
And I do reimburse you for any shipping costs involved in getting
raffle winners their copies (typically, you're sent two - one for
review, one to send out).
If you've been reading the newsletter and the reviews, you'll
have a good idea of how they're done - the length, what's
typically covered in them, etc. I try to have all contributions
by the 20th of each month. If this sounds like something you'd
like to do, please do let me know! I'd love to hear from you so
that we can talk about it.
Lots of interesting information in this issue, and a great guest
article by Sally Morgan of "Sing Like You Speak" that I think
you'll all find inspirational.
In the meantime, here are the raffle winners for this month:
- Dale Matthies from Goderich, ON Canada, has won a beautiful
(and highly useful!) notebook from The Jotted Line.
- Meg Tennant from Waterloo, ON Canada has won a copy of"100 Miles To A Record Deal" by author and publisher Bronson
- Michael Blache from Mandeville, LA has won a copy of "The Rise
and Fall of EMI" reviewed in a previous issue.

- Kimberly Hales Kime, from Climax, NC, has won a free 3
month membership to SongU, an
Internet-based learning environment providing online coaching,

multi-level courses developed by award-winning songwriters.
- Shane L. Whelan, from Riverton, UT has won a downloadable
version of Rhyme Genie, a dynamic
rhyming dictionary featuring over 300,000 entries and 30
different rhyme types.
I know I say this a lot - but it's really true. :) If you're
interested in one of the raffle prizes listed at the top of
http://www.musesmuse.com/musenews.html - or in the books,
software or services reviewed in these issues, please write to me
with your first and second choice, and your mailing address so I
know where to send the prize. :) They could really be yours!
And I'm happy to send them to good homes.
For the products reviewed, I may or may not have another copy to
raffle - or it might have already been given out - but it's
always worth a try! The quicker you write to me about a product
that was just recently reviewed, the better your chances are!
Happy July, everyone! Enjoy the newsletter!
All the best,
(Many thanks to the sponsors that help support this newsletter!)

|Songwriting Book Review
By: Ed Teja
A MONKEY MANUAL FOR SONGWRITERS
by Karin Paparelli and Bill DiLuigi - www.monkeyinaround.org
A lot of books that describe themselves as being about
songwriting focus on the business of songwriting. But many
writers just want to improve their skills and write better songs.
They either think that good songs will bring success, or are
focused on simply expressing themselves better in song, and not
intent on making money from their art. The MONKEY MANUAL FOR
SONGWRITERS addresses that need. (I will leave it to the authors
to explain the emphasis on monkeys that permeates the book. But I
should mention that it does manage to transcend the simply
Evolving from a songwriter circle in Nashville, it covers the
basics of songwriting, which means the basics of song structures
- what they are and what they do. The idea that songs are sold
and that some songs are written to be hits isn't ignored, but it
is covered just enough so that you will understand that aspect of
the craft. There is a section on cowriting, and one on the
process a song goes through in Nashville en route to becoming a
hit (the authors live and work there). Both are interesting and
One of the joys of this book is that every subject is a quick
take - a brief explanation, a chapter goal (so you know why you
are being told what you are being told), and some exercises that
will help you make the information seep into your subconscious.
The explanations are simple and clear, in keeping with the idea
that this is a basic manual, what the authors consider
Songwriting 101. I would have liked to have seen more discussion
in Chapter Five on the goal: "Learn how to use melody and
harmonizing chords to convey particular emotions." As it stands,
the information given simply suggests further exploration and
doesn't, to my mind, even begin to address what harmonizing is
about. Perhaps the authors consider that outside the scope of the
book, and that might be right, but I felt that they didn't offer
enough information to truly understand how to approach the goal
in a robust way.
Still, the idea of a manual is to get you thinking about the
different factors that make your songs convey what they convey
(sometimes, as opposed to what you intended to convey) and this
section does open the door to exploring harmonization.
The authors use their own songs as examples of the principles
they talk about, and have included a CD of those songs. This is
an excellent help, as lyrics on a page doesn't express the
overall song experience, and few people entering Songwriting 101
would be able to "hear music" by reading a score. It is also an
excellent way of showing that they walk the walk and produce
songs that are well crafted. So when a line in a song is supposed
to play a specific role, or a section is supposed to evoke a
particular emotion, you can hear how the authors expressed it.
Throughout the book you will find a series of tools. These are
actually what I would call tips, but they are certainly useful,
and since you will make something with them, it is hard to
quibble. There are tools for unblocking that which is blocked,
literary devices, metrical devices, and much more. In addition,
there is a lot of inspirational material in the book. The reason
is simple - sometimes writers need encouragement as much, or
more, than they need information. After all, songwriting, like
poetry, is supposed to be about expressing an inner vision. The
mechanics are intended to help you express it, not be an obstacle
to songwriting. And the authors understand that well. There is no
formula to producing a great song, but there are things to learn
that help, and you need to approach them as joyously as possible.
If you are looking to get a handle on what makes a song tick, and
how to approach songwriting, this is a good place to start.

Muse's Clues - By Irene Jackson
©1998-2010 Moonstone Productions All Rights Reserved.
Used By Permission
This month we're taking a look at a website called "Songwriter
Universe", which has a few
places to explore.
The real meat of the website is their Songwriter Universe
Magazine where you can find interviews with high profile
songwriters and artists including this month's feature interview
with Sarah MacLachlan. Other interviews include John Legend,
Dolly Parton, Matt Scannell of Vertical Horizon and American Idol
winner Taylor Hicks, among many others. SongwriterUniverse
founder Dale Kawashima has a long list of accomplishments,
including a background as President of several major publishing
companies, an A&R executive and a music critic/journalist/editor,
along with success in the pop, rock, R&B and country fields.
So as a result, you'll also find an extensive list of articles
about the music industry and business and education articles as
well. I particularly enjoyed the "Classic Songwriter Story"
articles; for instance Frank Myers talks about his song "I
Swear", which had been passed over for five years before it was
finally recorded, first by John Michael Montgomery and then by
the pop group All-4-One. Sometimes persistence pays! As a
bonus, you can listen to some of the original demos of these
songs. I couldn't get Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly's original
demo of "Like A Virgin" to work for me, but maybe you can. That
was another song that was passed up many times before it was
finally recorded by Madonna.
There are other interviews with legendary songwriters like Burt
Bacharach, Jimmy Webb and Holland/Dozier/Holland, and artists and
songwriters in pop, rock, country and R&B.
On the site you'll also find a Song of the Month contest. It'll
cost you $12 to submit your song, and I had a listen to some of
the more recent entries and have to say there were some good
entries in the mix. You can also get a critique from Dale
Kawashima for a fee, but even if you don't want to go that far,
you'll find plenty of info and interesting songwriter stories on
the Songwriter Universe.
Irene Jackson is a performing songwriter from Victoria, BC in
Canada. Aside from writing, recording and performing, she also
maintains a website for songwriters that includes tips, articles
and a songwriter's messageboard.

Featured Article - By Sally Morgan
Lucky Emma. She survived a plane crash and then wrote a song
The near-tragedy of January 16, 2009 that has been dubbed "Miracle on the Hudson" became Emma Saphina's 'Big Chance.' Emma
was on the US Airways flight that made an emergency landing in
the Hudson River.
Emma is an Australia singer/songwriter who had been in NYC
writing music and was on the way to Atlanta to visit friends when
the plane went down. Miraculously, all passengers and crew got
out of the plane alive and well. Emma was luckiest of all.
Emma was lucky for several reasons.
#1 - she's alive! She survived a plane crash.
#2 - Emma's only connection in NYC was a songwriter.
#3 - she's adorable and full of spunky personality.
#4 - Mark Swersky, the songwriter Emma traveled to NYC to write
with saw an opportunity and knew how to take advantage.
#5 - the time is right, the situation is right and Emma is ready.
Mark and Emma wrote a song about her surviving the plane crash.
Within 10 days of the crash the song was written, recorded,
produced and mastered. I met Emma less than 3 weeks after the
crash when she was being interviewed by Extra and Entertainment
Lucky Emma. She survived a plane crash, wrote a song about it
with a hit songwriter and is hopefully on her way to stardom.
That's what we're all waiting for is that one stroke of good
fortune to swoop in and make us a stars! Right?
Emma could not have taken advantage of this opportunity if she
had not been ready at that very moment, though. Can you imagine
her asking the gig to wait while she took a few voice lessons to
get into shape? No! She had to be ready at that moment to go full
speed into writing, recording, being interviewed, hair and make
up and all.
Let's not confuse luck with being ready when the opportunity
arises. Emma's readiness isn't luck, it's the result of focused
hard work on her craft. When I speak to groups of junior high and
high school students about a career in music, I ask what they
want from their music. Inevitably, 95% of them answer, "I want to
be rich and famous. I know with a little luck I can do it." Wrong
You have to be passionately driven to create, to know every
detail of your craft and to incessantly work on improving. In my
book, Morganix Method™-Sing Like You Speak, at the beginning of
every chapter there's a quote from a famous performer. Chapter 11
begins with, "I never wanted to be a star, I just wanted to get
work." Gregory Hines.
Gregory Hines did become rich and famous not because he was
aiming for fame and fortune, but because he loved his craft, gave
it the respect it deserved by working constantly to make it
Why do you think there are so few people who make it in our
business? There are millions of very talented people out there.
So few people make it because few are so driven by the love of
their craft - singing, acting, dancing, songwriting - to persist.
What do you think? Would you be ready if your plane went down in
the Hudson and suddenly you had a chance at making your dreams

years sing as simply and naturally as they speak. She is the
