Following the success of their recent launch, Song Studies with KT Tunstall, MusicGurus has teamed up with Guy Chambers, one of the UK’s most successful living songwriters, to release an online video course sharing the tips, tricks and secrets behind his (and long-time writing partner, Robbie Williams’) three biggest hit songs – Angels, Feel and No Regrets.
According to MusicGurus, ‘Song Studies with Guy Chambers is a unique course offers over two hours of exclusive insights into the processes that make these songs standout musically and lyrically and explains why they continue to stand the test of time. Budding songwriters are given advice on writing their own lyrics, creating a unique sound, the elements of song production that bring a track to life and advice on working with popstars!’
Filmed at Guy Chambers’ studio in West London, where he has worked with the likes of Kylie Minogue, Coldplay, Lana Del Rey and Robbie Williams himself, students are taught how to play these three songs on the piano and invited to ‘play along’ with Guy using MusicGurus’ interactive sheet music player.
Guy Chambers said, ‘It’s been a real pleasure to revisit these songs that I’ve included in my contribution to MusicGurus. In doing so, my aim was to unlock and demystify some of the dark arts of songwriting and I’d like to wish the best of luck to all those who engage with the course’.
Co-founder & CEO of MusicGurus Tom Rogers said, ‘The pandemic has driven a huge increase in online learning across all sectors and lifelong learning of music is no different. This is more than just a passing trend – it takes 28 days to create a new habit and now that people have experienced all the benefits of learning online, we think they will stick with it. Our new course with Guy represents an incredible opportunity for anyone interested in learning the secrets behind how global hit songs are made’.
