“I always feel welcome when I walk in the door at NSAI and I have met most of my co-writers and best friends there. The knowledge and education I have received as a member of NSAI has given me the confidence to actively pursue my goals as a songwriter. The wealth of information, care and understanding they offer through their incredible workshops, seminars, song critiques, mentoring sessions, online videos and pitches are inspiring, necessary and worth it! Thank you NSAI!”

“I’ve been an NSAI member for 4 years and it’s like a second home to me. The staff is AWESOME!! They always make me feel welcome and are so supportive!! NSAI has helped me develop in so many ways as a writer. I attended NSAI’s Advanced Song Camp when I was 11 years old. There I was introduced to co-writing and made friends with other great writers that I’m still writing with today! NSAI is awesome at helping writers connect with music industry professionals through their Pitch to Publisher nights and pro sessions.

“NSAI helps new songwriters get their songs heard and find co-writing relationships that could last a lifetime. As they become established,
NSAI continues to stand behind songwriters on a national level, making sure they can continue earning a living doing what they love. When

“I first heard about NSAI from a songwriting friend of mine. He encouraged me to join and become as active as possible. Once I went to the website, I couldn’t believe what I had found. If you’re a songwriter, NSAI is one of the first orga- nizations you should join. For me, I started out submitting songs to the song evaluators. They provide feedback on your material with suggestions on how you can improve your craft. Eventually, I found myself attending the Spring Training Seminars.


"NSAI hosted Tree Vibez Music during one of their Pitch to Publisher events, and I was fortunate enough to have my song taken. Through that connection, Dane (one of the publishers) reached out and expressed interest in recording a demo of the song they chose for a potential sync project. I went to their studio and had a great time hanging with Dane and cutting the demo. He said to send along any new songs that I'm excited about, so I sent a handful to him. He called me shortly after saying he'd like to work with me on the sync project.
