Writes songs like you've never heard before. Combining art and science to create music
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 button 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 the melody using a synth (on top of a guitar or piano) - with few melodies/harmonies options
3. I can add/change anything you would like, as you are eligible for one free revision
4. I'll send you a demo of ME singing, that way you'll know how to performe the song - then you can send it to the singer and complete the recordings without revisions (You will need this if you are working with an outsourced singer)
And that's it!
Let's make some music
Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

A: I love that my music make sense technically and mathematically - that is the basics and that is just too good.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Well, that would be that if I don't use a massive studio I don't know how to write massive pieces...
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Describe the song as much as you can, I want you to speak. And if you find writing challenging, record yourself and send it to me as an audio file. I promise to listen to Everything.

Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop and mainstream music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'm original and creative. That is where my professionality is coming from.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a "Disney" feel to the song, that is definitely my niche.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start off with a chord progression. Usually, a 3/4 chord sequence and from there I add twists and turns. all using the ground chords of the scale. Then I make the melody. I give several options to each riff and choose from the best sounding one. I divide the song into Verses, Choruses/Drops, and "C" parts and put everything together. I send the demo to the client for approved.
