This is Melodic Math. This is the Hit Song Formula. This is Songwriting Science:
In PITCH, you'll learn how to make your listeners feel
exactly what you want them to feel.
Hi, I’m happy you're back! Friedemann here.
Among my credentials is being the bestselling author of „The Addiction Formula“, founder of Holistic Songwriting - and your songwriting coach.
Let's see what awaits you in your next Trimester called PITCH. In PITCH you'll learn how to create the emotional experience you want for your fans.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM
Here's what you'll learn this trimester...
PITCH is all about consciously creating the EMOTIONS and FEELINGS your listeners experience while listening to your music.
The second trimester consists of 11 two-hour modules (not counting livestreams, Q&As, Hangouts, etc). These are jam-packed with practical techniques, rules & their exceptions, as well as countless examples.
This is the roadmap. This is how we'll get you to write the songs that make your fans experience exactly the emotions you want them to feel.
Master Sound & Space
The first module shows you how sound works and how you can use that knowledge for better-sounding productions - whether you record in a pro studio or in your bedroom.
Become a Pro at Music Production
At the end of this module you'll know how you can make your songs sound as good as you write them.
Understand Emotions and how Music relates and influences them
We will dig deep into the core relationships between melody, chords and scales - and how you can use them to "create" emotions for you and your listeners.
Tension/Resolution is one of the most fundamental concepts in all of music. After this module you will know how to create tension - and know all your options on how to resolve it correctly.
Make full use of Diatonic Harmony
You might be surprised, but there are many ways to write a great sounding diatonic chord progression. After this module, you can use them all.
Understand and apply Harmonic Rhythm - connect Harmony and Groove
As shown in the songwriting circle, your harmonies and your groove interact. In this module, we will cover exactly how and add groove and harmonic movement to your chord progressions.
Make your sound unique with Non-Diatonic Harmony & Rich Harmony
In modules 7 and 8 you will learn how to get a more unique sound and gain complete harmonic freedom. We will dig into Non-Diatonic Harmony and you will be able to make any chord progression sound richer and/or dreamier.
Master writing memorable Melodies
Modules 9 and 10 we will cover both melodic rhythm and melodic pitch in depth. When you are done you will write hooks and memorable melodies that flow and finally attain complete melodic freedom.
Use Backing Vocals to sound professional and unique
Learn how to write great backing vocals to any melody. Backing vocals can be a decisive differentiator between amateur songs and sounding professional. In this module you will learn everything you need to know to master this skill and make full use of this advantage.

Last trimester, you already learned a secret:
In songwriting, no instrument exists in isolation. Everything is connected in a complex web of rhythm, pitch and meaning.
And teaching someone how to navigate a web is hard. Very hard. I can’t flat out tell you to end your melody on a third on the tonic, right? What if you’re in a pre-chorus and you want to build tension? What if you’re in bar 2 of a 4 bar phrase?
Everything is connected. I can’t JUST teach you how to write for, say, the guitar, I have to ALSO tell you how it connects to all the other elements in your song.
This was my biggest struggle as a teacher. But then, suddenly everything changed. I had found a solution for my problem:
Instead of teaching each subject in isolation, I should talk about the connections BETWEEN subjects.
That's when I came up with the Holistic Songwriting Circle:
The Songwriting Circle shows you the main interactions between the different parts of your song.
This model allows me to teach each of the 9 elements of Songwriting in isolation AND the 9 ways in which they overlap.
This was the birth of „Holistic Songwriting Academy“.
This is the ultimate Songwriting Workshop that will have you writing musical, commercial songs in one year. It’s the world’s biggest collection of practical techniques that make songs addictive.
HSA is divided into 3 trimesters:
The physical component
A masterclass in how to write a rhythm section (yep, that’s not just the drums!) that makes people want to move. (more here)
The emotional component
(you are here)
How to write fresh, catchy melodies over lush chord progressions, hard-hitting riffs and funky bass lines.
The logical component
Hypercharge your songs with a revised look into „The Addiction Formula“ and craft functional, beautiful lyrics. (coming fall 2022)
I want you to be able to hear any song, anywhere, and be able to pick up your instrument and write something that feels the same, but in your own style.
That’s the freedom I want for you.
…to write anything you’ve been dreaming about and make it work.
…the satisfaction of knowing when your song is finished.
…constant flow from when you first pick up your instrument to when you export a mastered .wav file.
...communicate and create the emotions you want to express and your fans to experience.
In 2020, I did just that: I wrote the album I’d been wanting to make since I was 15. Back then I couldn’t, now I can.
I wrote, recorded and produced the entire album in a few weeks. And it turned out EXACTLY like I wanted. And I will teach you to write/produce YOUR album that YOU’ve been sitting on for too long.
Go from „good“ to „great“ by developing the skills of the world’s top songwriters - and gain an instant edge in the music industry.

About The Course Teacher,
Friedemann Findeisen (*1989, BMus) is a creator, songwriting coach and public speaker. After jumping onto the scene in 2015 with his best-selling book "The Addiction Formula", today he is best known for his YouTube channel "Holistic Songwriting" and the Artists Series.
To this point, the YouTube channel has gathered over 390K subscribers and a total of 15M views, making it one of the biggest songwriting channels in the world. Friedemann is also the creator of "The Songwriting Decks", a new inspiration tool for songwriters which overfunded by 230% on Kickstarter. Friedemann is a sought-after guest speaker at music conventions and tours Europe with his masterclasses on Structuring Songs and Getting Things Made.
In his free time, he designs board games that tell stories, invents escape rooms and writes music. His 2020 debut album "Subface", which he released under his artist name "Canohead" has been labeled the "Album of the Year" by the Nu Metal scene.
Friedemann lives in Cologne, Germany with his wife Joanna and their cat Lyric.
We asked for your experiences with Friedemann, and here's what you said...
isn't afraid to tell you how it is
grayson erhard - singer/songwriter
Friedemann isn't afraid to tell you how it is. I’ve sent him over ten songs at this point and I learn something every single time he gives me feedback. He dives into every aspect of the music and provides helpful insight that’s supported by his wealth of experience. I’m incredibly grateful for the feedback he’s provided, the time he takes to meticulously study music, and the methods he uses to deliver a valuable education. I believe Holistic Songwriting has led me to become much more aware of the choices I’m making within my music.
it's a fun and rewarding puzzle to put together
Jessica manske -
dj / songwriter / producer
I am a DJ and turning into a songwriter/ producer. I love how Friedemann gives the breakdown of popular artists and their formula both on YouTube and in his book. He puts everything together in an enjoyable way so that songwriting isn't a complicated chore, it's a fun and rewarding puzzle to put together. He helps you exercise that creative muscle and also borrow themes from pop music so that you can make your own songs and be proud of them! I love how he focuses on the groove and simplifies topics that could be daunting to beginning songwriters with no formal music training
taught me that I too can find my own voice with confidence
Weslay hibberd - writer
Having failed many times at writing a song I am happy with I have found that perseverance and sound guidance from Friedemann has reconfigured my approach and led me to achieve results I love. I enjoy the songwriting process, and Friedemann has taught me that the methods adopted by many great songwriters I admire are not transcendent and I too can find my own voice with confidence. Friedemann inspired me to use songwriting methods as tools rather than blueprints to communicate mine.
opened a new world for me
steve b -
Friedemann opened a new world for me with his approach to songwriting and singing the initial lyrics. Skeptical at first, not really a singer. I tried it and was amazed at the increased production and improvement in my songs. And, many of his tools are also very helpful and time savers too. Now the band is heading to the studio to record enough for a first EP. I couldn't have done it without his guidance.
helped me expand beyong being a rap artist
moreno muanza -
I started rapping when I was fourteen and today I'm twenty one. I left College 2-3 years ago to pursue music full time. I had the confidence and vision to become a professional artist but there were skills and information I KNEW I was missing. I read every and any songwriting book I can get my hands on and any music theory book I can find. I've been going to music conventions for years... to become a professional, I knew I needed guidance or a coach. Holistic Songwriting helped me expand beyond being a rap artist. I studied and bought every product holistic songwriting has ever created. My testimonial for holistic songwriting is me releasing three EP'S and one twelve song mixtape. Holistic songwriting gave me the perspective and creativity to make four musical projects & SIX music video's. My goal is to be a platinum selling artist and I know holistic songwriting can make me that Artist.
obtained a traineeship in one of Australia's best recording studios
Holistic Songwriting helped change the course of my life. I've always loved playing music, as a drummer. I liked the idea of writing songs, but I just couldn't grasp a lot of the concepts.
But your YouTube channel, Podcasts, and Bundles have expanded my knowledge to the point where I obtained a traineeship in one of Australia's best recording studios - The Grove.
I get to work with amazing Australian artists like Violent Soho, Birds of Tokyo, The Dune Rats, Ocean Alley and so many more.
I recommend you to anyone I know who has an interest in music, 10/10.
I see the matrix now
john toelaer -
The addiction formula has changed not only the way that I produce music and think about music, but also the way that I perceive and experience it. After reading, it was like the first time someone points out a bass guitar part and your eyes/ears are opened, except on a much larger scale. I see the matrix now.
will get you out of any creative rut
Friedemann, team holistic songwriting and community are your BEST AUDIENCE as an aspiring songwriter. The human touch and warm professional feedback will get you out of any creative rut or pitfall. There is attention to details (because the devil 's in the details) and you will get support on ANY level of songwriting, if you just a starter with a campfire guitar of a full blown pro.
I've truly leveled up
chris lautemann -
Reading "The Addiction Formula" and looking at arrangements through the energy-level lense that Friedemann teaches has taken away the guess-work and has replaced the trial & error approach with a framework to be more creative within. It has given me the confidence that I can actually complete songs. The songs I've written since gel, they make sense, they work and I feel proud and as if I've truly leveled up.
ideas that work
johnny mabie -
Writing alone or with Grammy-nominated writers, Friedemann's ideas about arrangement, energy, and melodic rhythm always work. He helped me understand that shaping a song is less like a stroke of genius and more like making a sandwich. A really, really awesome sandwich.
wish I had done this years ago
Holly Elsworth -
Firstly I wanted to say that I LOVE this course. I’ve done half of a bachelor of contemporary music at the Australian Institute of Music, and it wasn’t any where near as practical as this course. I wish I had this course a few years ago.
a deep analytical thinker
sam strohbehn -
Friedemann is an outstanding teacher. He is a deeply analytical thinker who can break down all elements of songwriting to reveal the patterns and building blocks anyone can use to improve their music while simultaneously never losing focus on the immediacy and emotion of a song. Most importantly he is a truly generous person, with his time, his work, and his art.
actually write songs instead of just daydreaming of it
beret roots -
Friedemann Findeisens Holistic Songwriting has given me the courage to actually write songs instead of just daydreaming of it. He makes songwriting easy and accessible. Especially his advice, that you can even write good songs on crappy instruments, was very helpful. He has also shown me that you don't have to become a professional musician in order to write songs. He has a great ear for giving feedback on song submissions.
changed my life and it's thanks to your education
asia ward -
My name is Asia Ward and I graduated last May with a degree in musical theatre, but nowadays, I produce, write, and sing songs for myself and other people. The only way that transition was possible was because of your courses. I started making music for fun after musical theatre didn't work out, but had no direction on where to start. With your guidance, my older songs were selected to win a slot in Tayla Parx's songwriting/production camp in NYC with people like Tommy Brown, Sarah Hudson, Ali Thompson, Normani, and more were in attendance. It changed my life and it's thanks to your education. You are able to break down giant ideas into a language I understand.
my single has gained over 500K streams
eric ryan -
Once I found your videos on youtube & purchased your audiobook, it taught me a variety of tools that I could use to formulate/create the structures of my songs... Some of which now have over hundreds of thousands of streams across my platforms!
I love the way you break knowledge/music concepts down to level where "music theory" isn't needed to understand. The way you teach these concepts are in a fun/easy to take in sort of way if that makes sense... I see you as like the "cool/fun" teacher that everyone had in school.
Thanks to holistic songwriting, the tools I learned helped me structure & arrange all of my music including my single „Soleil“ which has gained over 500K streams/plays across all my platforms combined!!
broke me out of the box I was in for 20 years
ehrich weiss -
I'm a hobbyist songwriter and musician of over 30 years looking to improve my skills in writing lyrics, melody and rhythms for my songs. Holistic Songwriting has broken me out of the little box I had been occupying in my musical journey and given me a new direction for my ideas, and especially one I've had for almost 20 years but was going nowhere.
any time a song of mine moved someone, it's because of these insights
heitor Leal Farnese
I'm a hobbyist that aspires to earn money through music in the long run, and Friedemann is, in every sense, a great companion to have in this journey. I think any time a song of mine moved someone, I owe that to Friedemann and his insights on hype and tension. He's fun, very intelligent, friendly and has a nerd soul. This is the type of teacher that is never entirely satisfied with just showing you examples of what works and what doesn't. He goes the extra mile in order to figure out and teach you the underlying rules that allow things to work.
I can speak the language and ask better questions
keith m -
I'm a professional software engineer. I was working on a section of software that required understanding chord progressions and the basic structure of a musical score. After a number of searches, I came across "The Addiction Formula" and since then it has become my bible. Immediately, I integrated the sections on musical energy and tension into the software design. Now I'm able to not only understand the concepts but I can speak the language and ask better questions. On a personal level, I'm enjoying music more than ever since I'm able to "predict" where the score is moving and why. Of course it helps that Mr. Findeisen is not only brilliant but a dynamic teacher.
everything is starting to make sense
What I like the most about your approach is that it's opened for everyone, no matter the level they're in, either if they know music theory or not. After a few years of studying this, I'm finally able to mix my animation and music and everything is starting to make sense!
Thank you for all the help!
I got offers to 5 universities
reuben andrews -
Friedemann's courses have been invaluable in the evolution of my approach to music as a Musician, Songwriter, and Producer. His methods of explaining concepts are both practical and applicable to the real world, not to mention he's genuinely engaging and is always looking to help fellow songwriters however he can. The knowledge I have gained from his content also enabled me to write songs that I used to get offers to 5 Universities to further study Music and Sound Production. Stay gefährlich!
turning pro is no longer a dream
adrian eiteneuer -
Friedemann Findeisen and Holistic Songwriting did not only help me take my commercial songwriting skills to next level, but thanks to him my latest single was aired on German Radio and Germany's biggest music blog wrote about me as an artist (I am a small independent artist): "a voice you should have heard of". Because of Friedemann, quitting my dayjob and turning pro as an artist is no longer a dream, but actual reality.
AN UNBEATABLE GUARANTEE
We’ve packed a lot into Holistic Songwriting Academy, and I want to make sure that you not only get all that content before you fully commit to this - I want to give you 30 days to let it digest, integrate it into your daily songwriting and make sure this is really working for you.
In these 30 days, you can try the first 3 modules (about 9 hours of material). That should be more than enough to figure out whether this course is for you. If you don’t LOVE it, I insist that you get 100% of your money back. I’ll even eat the credit-card processing fees.
It’s simple: Join the program and try it for yourself. If the formulas and tools don’t help improve your songwriting in 30 days, I want you to email me. Show me you did the exercises, and I’ll give you all your money back.
This guarantee lasts 30 days, which covers the first 3 modules. That means you can try a THIRD of the entire course and then decide if it’s not right for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
That depends on a number of things like your current skill level, how quickly you want to advance, how thorough you want to be, how fast you work & learn, etc.
From surveying my past students, it seems about 10 hours a week is a reasonable number. You can expect this number to be higher if you've never written, performed or produced a song before. You can expect it to be lower if you have been making music for a long time.
For those among you who are going all in on this: If you want to do nothing else, and just focus on HSA for four months, you can! There are definitely enough material and exercises to keep you engaged.
I can guarantee that you will learn something new in this course because I started it from scratch. Holistic Songwriting Academy is the result of analyzing thousands of hit songs and teaching you what I’ve learned. It is not a summary of other books or courses on the matter.
I started songwriting when I was 15 years old, I have a Bachelor of Music and even I learned a ton putting this course together. I’m not holding back, either. You’re getting all of my key insights into what makes great songs tick.
I'll be honest - it's not great. You should plan for at least a few hours a week on HSA.
Let me explain what the course actually looks like: Every week, you unlock about 1.5 hours of new video content, as well as exercises for the rest of the week. Every week, we do two livestreams meetings. In the first, I answer any questions you may have about the videos, in the second, I answer questions that came up while doing the exercises.
These livestreams are the crucial element in this discussions. You'll want to be up to speed for them.
So what happens if something unexpected happens and you can't invest the time necessary? The course material will be accessible for years to come, so you can always catch up. Unfortunately, the ability to ask questions will be gone.
I have marked all exercises that I consider crucial with an exclamation mark, so if you really have no time, just do those. Naturally, it is recommended that you come back for the rest.
In short, this is my Magnum Opus. The one to rule them all. Get this one, and you won’t need any of my other stuff*. I’ve refined and updated a lot of content from my Master Files and they have become the basis for Holistic Songwriting Academy, but this is about 90% new stuff. Yes, it’s a big ass course.
*although there is no overlap of this and "Getting Things Made" and "The Songwriting Decks", so you can get those in addition to this course.
In short, no. It might help you in some ways because it can give you another perspective, and it might hinder you in others because it will guide your thinking in a specific way. But all three trimesters have been designed so they don’t require any previous knowledge except basics such as:
You should know the names of all the instruments on the drums and you should know what a measure is.
You will learn how to read music in the course - this is an unfortunate necessity for communicating the techniques you will learn. And we will cover some very basic music theory in the second trimester. But it's not our focus.
Not including music theory was actually one of my biggest personal breakthroughs as a teacher, when I realized that explaining upper structures and dominant substitutes don't actually matter very much in practice.
It took a lot of confidence to decide against music theory for this course. It is, after all, my magnum opus and it should teach you everything I know.
However, I realized that I learned how to write songs without being able to read music, and that almost all the hit songwriters I know don't read music either.
So will that make the course less in-depth, less hardcore, less professional? I like to think the opposite - that thinking outside of music theory opens up a whole new world of teaching.
I don't want to spend 4 modules explaining music theory to you, when in the end, you won't be using it very much. You might understand some things a little better, but honestly, it doesn't matter. Says me, Bachelor of Music and huge music theory nerd.
Holistic Songwriting Academy takes place over one year, split into three trimesters.
Each trimester is four months, with one new module each week. We take a break every four weeks (as requested by our alumni) - you can use this week off to digest the material so far, review modules, and do the assignments you didn't have time for. Each module ranges from 1-3 hours, and is packed full of short and focused information. I recommend you watch each new module as it comes out, and with lifetime access you can revisit them whenever you like.
Each trimester is an individual purchase, so it is possible to wait a year before you continue with the next trimester.
The trimesters were designed to be consumed in the correct order (Groove, Pitch, Story) but it is possible to skip a trimester if you so choose. Since each trimester deals with one subject in isolation, if you're just interested in, say, Pitch, you could just enroll in that course.
BUT, let me say it again: I believe each trimester to be vital and you will miss out if you don't take all three. We discuss writing groovier melodies in the Groove trimester. We talk about storytelling on drums in the Story trimester. And we talk about strumming patterns in the Pitch trimester. Writing a song is writing a web of interconnected elements, so naturally, there is some overlap between the courses.
Yes - some of the exercises require you to send in a recorded song. If you have no experience recording music or programming MIDI, we can help you set that up. You will need to purchase a DAW and a few sound libraries. For the libraries, we recommend getting Native Instruments' basic Komplete bundle. It's an industry standard used by thousands of songwriters and producers world-wide.
Do you need the sound libraries? If you play drums, bass and guitar/piano, and you have a way of recording yourself, then no, you won't need to buy libraries.
If you really don't want to learn how to produce music, you can also work with notation programs such as Sibelius, Finale, Notion or Guitar Pro, but we do NOT recommend it, as you won't have enough control over the sounds.
As a rule, we'll try to make due with whatever your limitations are, but the better prepared you come into this course, the more you'll get out of it.
No, none of the exercises require you to be able to play an instrument.
However, while not needed for this course, if you want to become a songwriter, playing either the guitar or the piano is HUGE! You don't need to be a great player and you don't need to be fast or overly technical, but you should be able to play chords at the very least. Knowing how to sing and produce music also helps immensely.
Yes, I’ve designed this course for all sorts of musicians. I estimate that, even if you're a professional musician, about 40% of this course will still be news to you. Plus, don't forget that we offer a 30 Day Money-Back-Guarantee.
My favorite music to write is anything melodic and heavy. My debut album "Subface" from 2020 shows my style well. It was written, performed and recorded in its entirety by myself.*
I've written over a thousand songs in my life, and in a lot of different styles, including Pop, EDM, Trip Hop, Hip Hop, Film Music, Folk, Country, Rock and Indie. To hear some of these styles and more, click here.
*only exception: drum recordings and performances by Marco Meyer.
This is not just some stuff I've cobbled together from a bunch of YouTube videos.
This course was built from the ground up. My information does NOT come from other songwriting coaches, books, YouTube videos and the like. All my research is based on popular songs from different styles, not on other people's findings. And yes, that does mean I take a completely unique approach to Songwriting and Music Production.
Making the complex sound ELEGANT.
"Oooh, he's playing a 7/8!", "Is that a locrian scale I'm hearing?", "I wrote a polyrhythmic song once, too!"
Who talks like that? I'll tell you who: Professional musicians. And who else? Nobody. Because nobody cares that you can fit a Euler–Fokker genus scale into your song if it doesn't sound good.
Best case scenario: They'll think you're a musical genius and that your music is way beyond them... and they'll never listen to your music again.
Yes, we'll talk about odd time signatures and complex harmony, but our goal is NEVER to show off. It's to write great fucking music, period.
Inspiration is overrated.
Have you ever listened to your favorite song and thought "man, that's so good! I wish I had had that idea!" Next time you say something like that, try this: Take any part of that song and change it. Play a different bass line, change the lyrics, add some kick drums and see what happens. The first time I did this I was astonished: Anything I tried made the song worse, it fell apart in front of my eyes. The idea was the same, but I had messed up the execution.
That's what you'll learn in this course: How to execute your ideas well. How to frame your ideas correctly. How to balance out all the instruments to make your song shine.

One more thing...
If you wanted to, you could probably figure out this stuff on your own. I know, because that's what I did. But it's cost me thousands of dollars and ten thousands of hours when I add up what I've invested, spent, tested, and WASTED figuring out the "good stuff" that actually works... and works consistently and predictably.
So you can invest a ton of money and time trying to figure out what works or you can short-circuit that whole process and do something of a "mind-meld" with me... and then you can be putting this material to work in your life tomorrow.
