Song Critiques - Song and Lyric Evaluations

By Molly-Ann Leikin, Songwriting Consultant.
www.songmd.com

I am always excited to meet you, my new, talented clients who send me your work for song and lyric evaluations.  I refer to this as a song consultation.

Listening to a body of your work, and reading carefully through your lyrics several times, I get a real sense of who you are, and what you can contribute to the literature of music that nobody else can, since nobody else is exactly like you. 

After completing your song critiques consultation, I can tell immediately where and how to help you get your music to all the right people. 
 
If you send ten songs for consultation and nine of them are awesome, but the tenth isn’t quite there yet, I will go through it syllable by syllable, note by note, offering suggestions of how to revise that song ever so slightly in order for it to be as strong and competitive as the best songs/lyrics out there.  That is all included in my song critique consulting fee.

Most folks claiming to do song and lyric evaluations send you a quickie checklist, if that.  But not me.  I go through every detail of every song myself – I don’t staff it out – and I make careful, detailed notes on every syllable of lyric and every note of music and how the two parts of your songs blend together.

If your work is a good fit for the current marketplace, I’m happy to hook you up with everyone I know looking for great songs in your genre.  That, too, is included in my song critique consulting fee.  

When doing song and lyric evaluations, I look for your heart, your guts, your fingerprint.  My colleagues on the other side of the desk, who’ve been placing our clients’ songs in movies, TV, on CD’s and in commercials for years and years, look for that, too.

Leikin’s law is give ‘em what they want.

The best part of my job doing song critiques and lyric evaluations is matching lyricists and composers.  It’s very exciting to watch a writing team click!    

There are two ways to submit your work to me for song and lyric evaluations.

I make it convenient for you to submit your work to me for song and lyric evaluations.

l. Using PayPal, followed by mp3’s of your words and music, or emails of your words only. 
See full description below.

a. Using PayPal.
If you write words (lyrics) only, using PayPal at the link below, please take care of the transaction.  As soon as we’re notified it is complete, my assistant will invite you to email your work in mp3 format to me for consultation.  Please send each lyric in a separate email, not as an attachment, but in the body of your message, along with your questions and your full legal name, address, phone number and email address.  My professional fee is determined by the number of songs you send.  See link below:

1c. If you write music only, after paying for your consultation using PayPal, my assistant will invite you to send each of your melodies to me as a separate mp3, with your questions, full legal name, address, phone number and email address in the body of each email, not as an attachment.  My professional fee is determined by the number of songs you send.  See link below:

Please note:

A. I can only accept US funds.  If you live in a country other than the USA, I invite you to send me an International Money Order in US funds.  I do not accept VISA/MasterCard, but yes, I do accept PayPal which makes it very easy to do a transaction in foreign currency.  An e-check via PayPal is another option.  For more information on the e-check, please ask PayPal.   

B. If you want me to return your CD/lyrics, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope large enough for your work to fit, and I’ll be glad to return your material to you.  No SASE, no return.

C.  For legal reasons, any material sent to me for review without my consulting fee, must, regrettably, be discarded immediately.  Thank you for respecting the professional parameters of this consultancy. 

I’m looking forward to doing song critiques, reviews and lyric evaluations with you.

Write well today.  I’m in your corner all the way!
