October 25th | 12:30 EDT | Early Bird: $99, Today: $69.30

At the beginning of each quarter, Hit Songs Deconstructed offers a Trend Brief, a concise, data-driven webinar that provides a snapshot of the compositional and industry trends for the songs that land in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

Among the many topics covered are compositional trends such as genres, influences, instruments, tempo, key and song structure characteristics. On the industry side we cover an array of artist, writer and label trends such as chart performance (staying power, placement and prominence), single artist vs. featured artists, songwriter/artist collaborations and more.

Trend data is presented and visualized through line graphs, which show the evolution of each trend over the past year, and bar graphs, which provide a trend snapshot for the quarter. Data is also broken down by Top 10 hits, #1 hits, primary genres, and new arrival vs. carry over songs in order to further hone in on emerging trends.

By attending this workshop, you will gain valuable insight into the state of today’s mainstream music scene, and come away with the knowledge to help you stay ahead of the curve in a fast-changing musical landscape.
