This is what Songwriters say about 

the Lyric-Writing Master Files...

shows you what really matters in a profound and simple way

akshay d. -


The Lyric Writing Master files is the perfect distillation of the literature that already exists on the subject. It shows you what really matters in a profound and simple way. Friedemann is all about solid principles, and he will always back up his claims. You will learn about power positions, power words, rhymes, syllable placement, images, the list is endless. This is perfect to set you on a path to writing great lyrics in your own unique voice. And the number of resources [Holistic Songwriting] gives you is well worth the price. Get it!

the most contemporary,

to the point approach out there

Marten Mühlenstein -


Having read lots of books about lyric writing, [Holistics Songwriting's] approach is the most contemporary, to the point approach out there. Especially using the voice as synthesizer is a concept not many people talk about outside the singer's world.

Useful, pragmatic, and impressively complete

Pierre Lataste

- lyricist

Useful, pragmatic. I learned a lot of things that I’ve never seen anywhere else before. [The program is] impressively complete! The videos are short but there are many of them, so you can watch a little whenever you want. It's very clear, and Friedemann is straightforward and very well-spoken (wich is important for not native english speakers like me !!). It's all pretty serious, but in a relaxed way, and his (unique ) sense of humour shows up from time to time! I appreciated the classy black and white HD and the fast loading. I highly recommend this Master Class to anyone who wants to take his/her songs to the next level!

And this is what they say about Holistic Songwriting...

taught me that I too can find my own voice with confidence

Weslay hibberd - writer

Having failed many times at writing a song I am happy with I have found that perseverance and sound guidance from Friedemann has reconfigured my approach and led me to achieve results I love. I enjoy the songwriting process, and Friedemann has taught me that the methods adopted by many great songwriters I admire are not transcendent and I too can find my own voice with confidence. Friedemann inspired me to use songwriting methods as tools rather than blueprints to communicate mine.

opened a new world for me

steve b -


Friedemann opened a new world for me with his approach to songwriting and singing the initial lyrics. Skeptical at first, not really a singer. I tried it and was amazed at the increased production and improvement in my songs. And, many of his tools are also very helpful and time savers too. Now the band is heading to the studio to record enough for a first EP. I couldn't have done it without his guidance.

helped me expand beyong being a rap artist

moreno muanza -


I started rapping when I was fourteen and today I'm twenty one. I left College 2-3 years ago to pursue music full time. I had the confidence and vision to become a professional artist but there were skills and information I KNEW I was missing. I read every and any songwriting book I can get my hands on and any music theory book I can find. I've been going to music conventions for years... to become a professional,  I knew I needed guidance or a coach. Holistic Songwriting helped me expand beyond being a rap artist. I studied and bought every product holistic songwriting has ever created. My testimonial for holistic songwriting is me releasing three EP'S and one twelve song mixtape. Holistic songwriting gave me the perspective and creativity to make four musical projects & SIX music video's. My goal is to be a platinum selling artist and I know holistic songwriting can make me that Artist.

changed my life and it's thanks to your education

asia ward -


My name is Asia Ward and I graduated last May with a degree in musical theatre, but nowadays, I produce, write, and sing songs for myself and other people. The only way that transition was possible was because of your courses. I started making music for fun after musical theatre didn't work out, but had no direction on where to start. With your guidance, my older songs were selected to win a slot in Tayla Parx's songwriting/production camp in NYC with people like Tommy Brown, Sarah Hudson, Ali Thompson, Normani, and more were in attendance. It changed my life and it's thanks to your education. You are able to break down giant ideas into a language I understand.

my single has gained over 500K streams

eric ryan -

recording artist

Once I found your videos on youtube & purchased your audiobook, it taught me a variety of tools that I could use to formulate/create the structures of my songs... Some of which now have over hundreds of thousands of streams across my platforms! 

I love the way you break knowledge/music concepts down to level where "music theory" isn't needed to understand. The way you teach these concepts are in a fun/easy to take in sort of way if that makes sense... I see you as like the "cool/fun" teacher that everyone had in school. 

Thanks to holistic songwriting, the tools I learned helped me structure & arrange all of my music including my single „Soleil“ which has gained over 500K streams/plays across all my platforms combined!!

broke me out of the box I was in for 20 years

ehrich weiss -


I'm a hobbyist songwriter and musician of over 30 years looking to improve my skills in writing lyrics, melody and rhythms for my songs. Holistic Songwriting has broken me out of the little box I had been occupying in my musical journey and given me a new direction for my ideas, and especially one I've had for almost 20 years but was going nowhere.
