Curriculum vitae — in German — Fancy!

Dear Sculptors of Sound,

I plopped a “bunch of stuff” onto this page. You’ll find your free report(s), some instructional videos, a small selection of my work, and a few testimonials.

I’ll improve this page continuously. 

Your Free Reports!

How To Write Your Songs Down

would really love it, if we could collaborate on allowing me to do free lessons within your songwriting group, in exchange for me being allowed to mention my upcoming paid program called

“Let’s Make 2020 Our Best Songwriting Year Ever!”

The way I have it planned, is that the program will cost 1497 Euro, and your commission would be 500 Euro, should students register from your group. 

Please let me know, if that sounds good to you!


Dainis W. Michel

PS: Some of the stuff on this page is still in German, and I’ll spend some time over the course of the next week translating it for you. I just wanted to get this message to you today.

Watch my video about how the Profitable Virtual and Physical Business Integration process Dainis W. Michel is guiding me through is helping my business. Highly Recommended.

I would like to thank Dainis for his incredible caring and kindness for fellow musicians, and for writing such a fantastic book. I dearly hope that as time goes by, this gets the recognition it deserves as a fantastic resource for musicians who want a jump start when it comes to composition.

Emily Sanders

“This is one of the most complete collections of practical songwriting resources and ideas, both for creative inspiration and for a myriad of professional musical skills. Easy to access and great fun to read, these books are a must for the serious songwriter. Dainis’ insight into the artist’s mind is exceptional!”

Lesley Pinkett

“I am truly impressed with both the quantity and the quality of the information in “How to write your songs down” by Dainis W. Michel. There has been a tremendous amount of work into this project and the result is a stunningly simple explanation of song writing techniques.”

Michael Schelle

“You always make me proud – as a musician but, more important, as a wonderful human being and exceptional dad!”
