why cards?

Music composition is often a solo process but it doesn’t have to be isolating, collaboration is always helpful to stimulate energy and ideas. Produced by professional musicians, these cards are 'mini collaborators,' and are a great addition to a songwriting journal or book. They are designed to be used by individuals & groups as a means to trigger thought processes & ideas. 


Each box comes with a deck of 105 cards of 6 families: 

Style (genre)  
Harmony (chords)  
Keyword (lyric writing prompts)  
Idea (inspirational ideas)  
Wisdom (songwriting acumen)  
Gift Card (surprise!)

They provide helpful tips to stimulate inspiration to create powerful, unforgettable songs. 


These songwriting cards are a great addition to The Song In My Head - Songwriting Journal. In the vein of prompt cards or oracle cards, they assist and support the creative process of songwriting, and music composition. Pull a card from a specific family whenever you need inspiration, or choose one from each family to create a songwriting brief to make your own song. 


The cards are designed for songwriters and composers, musicians, kids, creatives, music students and music teachers, wordsmiths, and poets, or anyone who wants to know how to write a song and who is looking to connect with their inner John Legend, Adele, Max Martin, Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé, John Lennon etc, or for those just seeking a gift for a musician in their lives. 

Short on ideas? Grab a card, it works!”

The Songwriter Cards are like a set of sparks in a box, firing your brain in unexpected directions. Absolutely brilliant idea!”

Printed by an FSC-certified company in England, the paper used for the Songwriter Cards comes from trees from well-managed forests.

The decks have been individually localised with US & UK spelling and grammar, to accommodate the territories they are bought in.
