Praise

“I count myself lucky and proud to have studied with Mr. Pattison. I would not be the writer I am today without his teaching and his unique and comprehensive understanding of language, rhyme, rhythm, and structure.”
– 3-time Grammy winner Gillian Welch

“Pat Pattison does the impossible.  He takes the mystery out of songwriting without taking the heart out of it.” 
- David Wilcox

“I took a class with a great teacher named Pat Pattison… I learned a lot in that class…and I still read that book, Writing Better Lyrics. I think it’s great.”
-7-time Grammy winner John Mayer


“Last year, I read a book called “Writing Better Lyrics” by Pat Pattison that completely reshaped the way I look at songwriting. Just as an athlete prepares for a game with a proper warm-up, I’ve learned to start my day with writing. I picked up a black Moleskine notebook and began writing freely without worrying about meter or rhyme scheme as a way to reflect on my thoughts or my day. Not only has this practice allowed me to get the creative juices flowing each morning, but I now have a notebook full of memories to look back on…”
- Madison Kozak
 
“It’s a great book for new songwriters, to whom some of this advice will be revolutionary, and it’s great for experienced writers who want to understand songwriting on a theoretical level.”  
—Liam Duncan, musicindustryhowto.com
