Watch this brief testimonial from Jason Brawner, songwriter/producer whose credits include Carrie Underwood, Hilary Duff and American Idol


Songwriting is an art – but its also a craft. As songwriters we all have internal muses that inspire us with melodies and lyrics that convey feelings and stories. But professional songwriters know that inspiration is only the first step, and it takes a thorough knowledge of the craft to edit what our muses give us into a finished product that can successfully impact thousands or even millions of people.

Jai has been successfully helping songwriters take their writing to a new level for over three decades through his nationally renowned SongShop as well as his private coaching and educational CD’s. Come look inside and see how Jai can help you realize your full potential as a songwriter. To contact Jai directly about working with him, email
