Structuring a song has a pattern to it, just like anything in life. Most of your popular songs have a certain structure that they all have in common — in fact, most pop songs use literally the same song structure every single time and many doesn’t even realize it. This doesn’t mean that you can’t structure a song any way you like, but popular songs do follow a pattern. Learning song structure is the key to being able to make music that people actually want to hear, especially if you’re just starting out learning to make music in general. Today we will discuss not only the structure of the song but the basics too. Beats, measures/bars and time signatures are all part of the structure of a song and as such, we will spend time today discussing those. From there, we will get into the actual structure of a song and how it is put together.
