No specific books are required for this program.

Exploring other people's songs and music is a great way to learn however, so building a library of music is never a bad thing!

Understanding as much as you can about the Theory and construction of music is also extremely advantageous, so Theory books can be very valuable reference material!

For those who like to write their music with paper and pen, then manuscript can be purchased through Wendy's online shop.

Students are not required to have or even be able to play an instrument to be able to write and create their own music, however it can be an advantage!

Each of our Song writing and composition Teachers have different instrumental skills, so it may be worthwhile viewing their profiles  to find someone who matches your needs.

Remember that these lessons can be held online using skype type technology, so your ideal teacher doesn't even have to live in your neighborhood!

Although an instrument is not necessary, a computer is ( or manuscript paper and pen)!
