The home for songwriters on YouTube

YouTube is billing its new hub as “The Home For Songwriters On YouTube” as it provides the latest news and educational resources for music makers. Features and resources are tailor-made for creators who want to showcase their music as they grow their audience “through the power of a YouTube channel”.

Knapp states that the hub provides “the blueprint for songwriter, producer, mixer composer engineer to get started growing and maintaining their own digital discography on YouTube.”

For example, content that covers “songwriters & producers,” “publishers and societies,” “insider tips”, and “content strategies” allows songwriters to stay in the know with the latest advice ad stories while trying to get their music heard. Furthermore, the hub presents more information about making the most of YouTube Shorts!
