So You Want to Be a Rock N Roll Star: Jammin' New Book Brings Music to Ears of Millions Aspiring to Write, Record & Perform Music

Written by music industry veteran, Marc Platt, ‘So You Want To Be A Rock N Roll Star: Why Songwriting Matters...You Can Do It’ is the world’s most definitive guide to writing, recording and performing original songs. Taking readers from the fundamentals of melody through to leaving the crowd screaming for more during live performances, Platt’s book is the missing link in the musical dreams of many.


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/17/2014 -- Some people are happy singing in the shower or causing a melodic stir during their bar’s weekly karaoke night, but millions more have serious dreams of writing, recording and performing their own music. While the process may appear daunting or even unachievable, a compelling new book proves that storming the music scene is entirely within anyone’s reach.

‘So You Want To Be A Rock N Roll Star: Why Songwriting Matters...You Can Do It’ is the work of Marc Platt, who has three decades’ experience of teaching music and performing for the big screen. The book is the world’s most definitive guide to the songwriting and performing process, and has already captured its market with gusto.


“This is a must for anyone who wants to write, record and perform their own songs. Platt will take you through the entire process in a conversational way.

He uses same techniques he has used to teach successful Songwriting and Performance Workshops for the past 10 years in the Los Angeles area.

He will break down melody, rhythm and message, as well as the ‘Do's’ and ‘Don'ts’ on a stage in a very easy way to understand for artists of ALL levels.”

As the author explains, his book stands head-and-shoulders above similar releases on the market.

“Most publications focus on just one of the three areas of writing, recording and performing. Even if the book does straddle two or more topics, they normally assume that the reader has some prior knowledge of the music composition process. My book can be used by someone with no experience – it really is the grassroots guide that can make their dream a reality,” says Platt.

Continuing, “I tested it heavily among my students and the most common feedback was that the book is both extremely thorough yet easily understood by the layman. To me, this is the perfect combination.”

Platt is correct, reviews to date have been overwhelmingly positive.

“Platt builds on 30 years of front line experience to deliver a much-needed set of words to live by. Highly recommended and, what's more, a bible for serious songwriters,” says Alan Haber from Pure Pop Radio.

XRPRadio’s Tizz Shearer adds, “Marc Platt gives a fantastic insight into the world of the music creation, dealing with the tougher subjects from the view of an experienced composer, producer and performer.”
