Whatever genre you're into, if you learn Ray's song-whispering method taught in our Apprenticeship video courses, you'll be able to start songs, make new sections for existing sections, transition between sections & finish your songs!


Song-whispering may be the single greatest concept ever! You have no idea how much it has freed me up from self-judgement and self-limitation in music, and in life.” Glynne Owen (Apprentice)

Song-whispering is a learnable thing, officially! I have dreamed for years about having this much control and awareness in my songwriting. –Mark Rose (Apprentice)
