What others say about Holistic Songwriting:

isn't afraid to tell you how it is

grayson erhard - singer/songwriter

Friedemann isn't afraid to tell you how it is. I’ve sent him over ten songs at this point and I learn something every single time he gives me feedback. He dives into every aspect of the music and provides helpful insight that’s supported by his wealth of experience. I’m incredibly grateful for the feedback he’s provided, the time he takes to meticulously study music, and the methods he uses to deliver a valuable education. I believe Holistic Songwriting has led me to become much more aware of the choices I’m making within my music. 

it's a fun and rewarding puzzle to put together

Jessica manske -

dj / songwriter / producer

I am a DJ and turning into a songwriter/ producer.  I love how Friedemann gives the breakdown of popular artists and their formula both on YouTube and in his book. He puts everything together in an enjoyable way so that songwriting isn't a complicated chore, it's a fun and rewarding puzzle to put together.  He helps you exercise that creative muscle and also borrow themes from pop music so that you can make your own songs and be proud of them! I love how he focuses on the groove and simplifies topics that could be daunting to beginning songwriters with no formal music training

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.

obtained a traineeship in one of Australia's best recording studios

joshua starkey


Holistic Songwriting helped change the course of my life. I've always loved playing music, as a drummer. I liked the idea of writing songs, but I just couldn't grasp a lot of the concepts.

But your YouTube channel, Podcasts, and Bundles have expanded my knowledge to the point where I obtained a traineeship in one of Australia's best recording studios - The Grove.

I get to work with amazing Australian artists like Violent Soho, Birds of Tokyo, The Dune Rats, Ocean Alley and so many more.

I recommend you to anyone I know who has an interest in music, 10/10.

I see the matrix now

john toelaer - 


The addiction formula has changed not only the way that I produce music and think about music, but also the way that I perceive and experience it. After reading, it was like the first time someone points out a bass guitar part and your eyes/ears are opened, except on a much larger scale. I see the matrix now. 

will get you out of any creative rut

gerben nieuwenhuis 


Friedemann, team holistic songwriting and community are your BEST AUDIENCE as an aspiring songwriter. The human touch and warm professional feedback will get you out of any creative rut or pitfall. There is attention to details (because the devil 's in the details) and you will get support on ANY level of songwriting, if you just a starter with a campfire guitar of a full blown pro.

I've truly leveled up

chris lautemann -  


Reading "The Addiction Formula" and looking at arrangements through the energy-level lense that Friedemann teaches has taken away the guess-work and has replaced the trial & error approach with a framework to be more creative within. It has given me the confidence that I can actually complete songs. The songs I've written since gel, they make sense, they work and I feel proud and as if I've truly leveled up.

ideas that work

johnny mabie -  


atlantic records

Writing alone or with Grammy-nominated writers, Friedemann's ideas about arrangement, energy, and melodic rhythm always work. He helped me understand that shaping a song is less like a stroke of genius and more like making a sandwich. A really, really awesome sandwich.
