Do you need to have experience with playing music to write a song?

Hi Joe, Thanks for the question. Some people consider themselves lyricists and only contribute to the lyrics. You can be taught how to count the meter and syllables so things line up right when they are put to music. That is part of what I teach in my workshops. If you want to contribute to the melody, you don't have to play an instrument but it is helpful if you can sing on pitch and keep the meter even so things line up right. It can all be taught though.
