Greetings! My name is Clifford Stumme, and I'm the Pop Song Professor. I'm a college professor who cares deeply about powerful lyrics and helping people to find and write really good ones!

Song writing (and life for that matter) can be lonely, but there's something about lyric writing that's powerful! You can express yourself, make something beautiful, and help others!

Sadly, not everyone likes their own lyrics or knows how to write good lyrics, so I created this page to teach people how to write strong lyrics that they can be proud of.

But that's not enough! It's enough to write lyrics that are good or want to talk about good ones. You have to have someone to share them with.

So, I created community groups on this Patreon where you can chat with other people about your favorite songs, writing lyrics, and more! 

If you join this page, you will join a powerful community of deep-thinking friends like you, and you will learn to write better lyrics!


When you join this community, you're going to find lots of cool things!
  • Communities centering around lyric analyzing and songwriting!
  • Connection to other songwriters who can help you get better or collaborate with you!
  • Lyric writing help from me!
  • The Still Needs Explaining Podcast where my wife, April, and I explain songs you request!
  • The BTS Podcast!
  • And a lot more!
You're going to meet other people who care about the same things you care about: good lyrics that mean something.

While there are many perks on my Patreon, I think there are a few guiding ideas you'll especially appreciate:
  1. Community: We can discuss ideas and share and grow together. 
  2. Growth: Whether it's theorizing about songs or writing them, you're going to get better!
Please support me here on Patreon. You will join a community of people like you, and you will enjoy it!
