Songwriter. Topline melody specialist.
Hi there! My name is Ido, I'm a songwriter and I'm here to assist you in writing your song.
I know how to write complex yet simple-to-understand-by-audience melodies. I have developed music writing skills after studying the work of broadway's and Disney's top writers (Bobby and Kristen Anderson Lopez, Justin Paul, and Benj Pasek).
I'm listing songs/ music pieces that I wrote recently. If you like my work, hit the contact bottom and we'll get to work.
My workflow is VERY simple:
1. You describe the song to me (If you have lyrics already send them to me) and I start writing it.
2. I'll send you a demo of me singing it (on top a guitar or piano) - with few Melodies/ harmonies options
3. You love what I send you, And if you have any ideas for changes I can add up to 2 revisions.
4. I send you a full detailed live-action video of me, explaining step by step, how to sing the song - so you can send it to the singer and complete the recordings without revisions (trust me, you need this if you are working with an outsourced singer)
And that's it!
Let's make some music
Contact me through the green button above and lets get to work.
