This webinar is presented by SongwriterLink in partnership with Songwriting magazine.

Want to learn the secrets of writing a catchy, memorable hook in just 90 minutes that you can use in your songwriting for the rest of your life?

No element of a song is more important than the melody – it’s what grabs us and keeps us coming back. Friedemann Findeisen, author of The Addiction Formula and founder of Holistic Songwriting, has been studying hit song melodies for over a decade. In this webinar presented by SongwriterLink and Songwriting magazine, he’ll share the proven formulas and songwriting tools you need to write strong hooks every time.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn the techniques hit songwriters use every day to write strong, catchy hooks
  • Be provided with a logical, step-by-step approach to writing contemporary hooks
  • Get your songwriting questions answered by Friedemann during the live Q&A session
  • Have the opportunity to get live feedback on your hook during the webinar (when you select the “serious songwriter” package – see details in the FAQ below)

Here’s some social media love from attendees of our last webinar:

“Great webinar by @SongwriterLink! It has me enthused to make songwriting my profession. Can’t wait for the day! Thank you #SongWriterLinkLive@AshhMon on Twitter

With recommendations from industry heavyweights Erwin Steijlen (Pink, Shakira), Conrad Pope (John William’s orchestrator), Jeff Rona (God of War III, Traffic), and Rene Merkelbach (Within Temptation), Friedemann Findeisen started his songwriting/producing school, Holistic Songwriting, in November 2015. He has since written a book called The Addiction Formula, a seven-day audio program on songwriting, and video courses on hook writing and drum writing.


SongwriterLink is a free songwriting collaboration website that makes finding the perfect co-writer faster and more efficient than ever before. It’s the only website that uses matching engine technology – the same kind that dating websites use – to help find you exactly the type of songwriters you’re looking for. Whether you’re looking to score a publishing deal or want to collaborate just for fun, SongwriterLink’s matching algorithm will pair you up with other songwriters who share your same goals and passion.


Songwriting is a quarterly digital magazine aimed at songwriters and fans of song-led music – of all genres. We take advice from successful songwriters, producers, and industry experts to provide you with tips, techniques, ideas, and inspiration to keep the music flowing, from writing lyrics and melodies to advice on how to promote yourself and your songs. Plus, you’ll find interviews with big-name artists and rising stars, and reviews of new music from pop to hip-hop to soul to rock.

About the Author Friedemann Findeisen

I’m Friedemann Findeisen, a creative weirdo from the middle of nowhere. I love making things, learning things and helping people. If I don’t make, I get restless. If I don’t learn, I feel empty. If I don’t help, I feel ungrateful. Good things have happened when I managed to balance all three.

In the past, I’ve been a magician, public speaker, music video director, songwriter, producer, board game designer, author, publisher, YouTuber, music profiler, illustrator, musician and film composer.

The best things I've ever made are Holistic Songwriting Academy, my book The Addiction Formula, the YouTube show The Artists Series, my Grunge album Canohead and my board game Cantaloop.
