One of Nashville’s most revered and accomplished songwriters, Shane McAnally is passing along his knowledge in an 10-week online songwriting class designed for songwriters, producers and artists. The course will teach the “Nashville approach to songwriting,” which uses “lyricism, wordplay, rhyme and melody to tell compelling stories through song,” he describes in a video that shows him working in the studio.

McAnally notes that Nashville songwriting goes beyond country music (and can be applied to any genre of music, from pop and rock to R&B and hip hop, and everything in between) and that the class will connect attendees to other songwriters from around the world to bounce ideas off of. 

McAnally will teach his “entire songwriting process,” and by end of course, attendees will walk away with originally written songs. 

The online class, which starts at $1,999, takes place January 10 – March 31, 2023, via Studio and has limited seating available. Enrolment closes on December 27.

“I do not believe you can actually ‘teach’ someone to be a songwriter, however, there are ways to set yourself up for success,” he explains in an Instagram post. “I can only share my experience and the habits that have helped me to open the lines of creativity and to say/write something that matters…even if only to me. I write songs because I have to, and if you have that same desire, I think this class could give you some tools to get started and to follow through.”

Considered one of the best living lyricists, he is the most nominated songwriter in CMA history. He’s also won 3 Grammy Awards, 3 ACM awards and a CMA Award. He was named Songwriter of the Year in 2021.
