Song Assessment Service

After working hours upon hours on a song, you  may need fresh ears to give you perspective.  The S.A.C. has created the Song Assessment Service to provide members with valuable one-on-one feedback from a pool of more than 30 established and recognized professionals chosen by the S.A.C.

These assessors include professional songwriters, music publishers, producers and other music industry professionals specializing in genres including pop, folk, country, singer-songwriter, dance/electronic, rock, RnB, instrumental and jazz.

The Song Assessment service strives to cater to individual needs by assigning your song to the assessor that we feel will be most helpful.

You will be assessed on:
  • performance
  • song structure
  • lyrics*
  • music
  • commercial appeal

*If your song is not in English or French, please include translated lyrics in the lyrics section. Unfortunately our assessors are not multilingual.

The S.A.C.'s Song Assessment Service is exclusive to members.

Here's how it works:

Make sure you're logged into the website. Upload a song directly into "My Assessments" -> "New Assessment".  Make sure to make a note if there's anything in particular about which you're hoping to receive feedback.  For example a particular verse or chord change.  Online Assessments will be processed between 6-8 weeks or sooner. Assessment online will cost $20

Mail-in submissions will cost $28.25 for each song assessed. 
Please include:
  • CD with lyrics typed or printed neatly
  • Cheque, money order or credit card payable to the SAC in the amount of $28.25 for each song submitted.
  • Provide a self-addressed stamped envelope with appropriate postage for the return of your material.
  • Completed Song Assessment Application Form.  Download Here.
Please allow 6-8 weeks to receive your completed Song Assessment.

Note:  All assessors will remain anonymous.
