    I highly recommend the songwriter's feedback service I utilized for my latest song. His insights were constructive, focusing on the strengths of the track such as the production, vocal quality, and harmonies, while also providing clear guidance on areas for improvement, including song structure, vocal effects, and beat variation. His approach was professional, tailored, and respectful, valuing the subjectivity of music and encouraging growth. This service is invaluable! Thank you Merty!!
