The Creative Songwriting Journal

Sophie published her first book at the end of 2020 ‘The Creative Song writing Journal’ l for children 6-12 years. Building confidence, encouraging creativity, and supporting self-expression. This how to guide is packed with exercises, inspirational quotes and her own unique approach to song writing. Underpinned by academic research as a result of Sophie qualifying with an MA specialising in singing and wellbeing, this is a powerful book that is now being used regularly by teachers, parents, music establishments and therapists.

Since its release in December of 2020, it has been endorsed by Sue Atkins, BBC, Disney and ITV’s This Morning parenting expert. In the spring of 2021, just 3 months after publication. Sophie gained representation with Speaking About Books. This has been a very exciting start to 2021 and Sophie is proud to be under the same agency as the famous author, Michael Rosen. Her second book ‘If you can’t say it Sing it’ is now published and available to order.

iF You Can't Say iT, Sing iT!

If you Can’t say it Sing it’ is Sophie’s 2nd book and was published in April 2021. This beautiful ring bound journal is printed in full colour on thick high-quality paper with a soft feel cover. It is packed with exercises, ideas and mini projects to fill in, cut out and keep.

They all encourage exploring emotions and self-understanding through song writing, creative storytelling and the one thing children have by the bucket load… imagination! This unique book is the perfect companion to Sophie’s first book ‘The Creative Song writing Journal’. You will learn skills that you can use and develop over and over again.

There is even a unique ‘Keep Out’ sign to cut out and hang on your door for when you are practicing!
