Dragan P Services

Songwriting

The idea is to try and make the song as marketable as possible, while not drifting too far from the artist’s original vision. I’m available for co-writing with artists, and I can also provide music for singers who write songs and don’t play an instrument.

Music composition is a specific activity that requires knowledge of music theory, harmony, counterpoint, etc.

Arranging

Song Arrangements are connected to music production on so many levels. Great producer is great arranger too! A music producer can, in some cases, be compared to a film director.

A producer has many roles that may include, but are not limited to, gathering ideas for the project, selecting songs or session musicians, proposing changes to the song arrangements, coaching the artist and musicians in the studio, controlling the recording sessions, and supervising the entire process through audio …

Producing

Music producers are often defined as the unsung heroes behind the scenes in popular music. In recording a song, or making a record, the music producer serves much the same role as a director in a film.

It is the music producer’s job to make sure that the finished product is at the end as good as it can be.
