Writing a Soca song
by: Dimpledread

first you can never be too young to write music its done everyday. machel was 8 when he lost in that talent show that Shadow wrote Too Yog To Socs for and look at him now. one thing that works for me is re-write a song that i love it doesnt matter what genre and then change it to what you want. dont have too many words and ow a days a soca song typically has 2 verses with a chorus but you can stretch it to 3 just make sure the song is under 3 minutes , write what you know it doenst have to be a aparty song it can be something as simple as a sunset outside your window or the love you feel for someone/something the choices are limitless good luck and start writing!!!

Here's a tip for writing a soca song. You can do this for any genre really, but you asked about soca.

Choose one of your favourite soca songs and write a different lyric to the melody of the song. In other words change the lyric.

Later on change the melody of the song and you come up with an entirely new soca song.

This is a great technique for learning how to write a soca song and is great for practice. You will learn more about the structure of soca songs.

After you have a firm grasp on this you should trying writing without having such a template to write from.
