Music REALLY Works is the most amazing book on music I have ever
read. I wish this book was available years ago; it is by far the
definitive guide on music creation.”
—Marco Mastrocola, film & TV composer
Music Really Works is the most comprehensive and useful book
that I’ve ever read on music and songwriting. Chapters 8 & 10, in
particular, introduce elements of songwriting that have never been
addressed before in any of the 30+ books I’ve read on songwriting.
If anyone is truly serious about writing songs that will stand the
test of time, then this book is a must read.”
—Bryan Fogelman, Director, REO Songwriters' Retreat
is a book that makes you think—re-examine your assumptions and
approaches ... If you love the science and art of songwriting, it
is a fascinating book.”
—The Muse's Muse
“The very best book EVER written
must be How Music Really Works by Wayne
Chase ... Amazing! And so much fun to read.”
