Lesson №8: "Creating Music with ChatGPT": An Overview of the Capabilities of ChatGPT and AI

  1. "Musical Creativity with ChatGPT": An Overview of ChatGPT and AI Capabilities for Composing Song Lyrics and Music.


Music is one of the most influential and universal forms of art. With artificial intelligence technologies such as ChatGPT, we can enhance our capabilities in musical creativity by generating new song lyrics and even melodies. In this tutorial, we will explore how to use ChatGPT to create musical content.

Creating Song Lyrics with ChatGPT

Song lyrics are a unique form of poetry, and ChatGPT can be useful in creating these texts. You already know how to use ChatGPT for crafting stories and narratives, and the approach here will be quite similar.

You can give ChatGPT prompts like: "Write lyrics about a forsaken knight in love." However, keep in mind that you may need to refine the rhymes on your own, as unfortunately, it does not have the ability to rhyme:

Sometimes a more general inquiry can provoke a more creative response, while more specific instructions can help clarify the topic and style.

Generating musical ideas with ChatGPT

If you need help creating an idea for a melody or musical composition, ChatGPT can be useful.

For example, you could ask it: "Suggest an idea for a melody for my new love song."

Intelligence can offer a description of a musical mood or style, which you can use as a starting point for your musical creativity.

Analyzing musical structures and styles with ChatGPT

Another useful feature of ChatGPT is the analysis of musical structures and styles. If you want to write a song in a specific style or genre, you can ask ChatGPT to analyze that style and provide ideas for your song.

For instance, you could say, "Tell me about the structure of a typical blues song," or "Suggest an idea for a pop music style song."

The response to the first request might be something like:

AI for Music Creation

Creating a musical composition is the next step after writing song lyrics. Although ChatGPT cannot directly create music, there are many other AI tools capable of doing so.

  • AIVA: AIVA (Artificial Intelligence Virtual Artist) is an AI that creates musical compositions for films, video games, commercials, and other media projects.

  • Soundful: Uses the power of AI to create royalty-free music with the press of a button for your videos, streams, podcasts, and much more. The entire track creation process here is greatly simplified and intuitive.

  • Ecrett Music: This tool allows anyone to generate musical clips by learning from hundreds of hours of existing songs. The Ecrett Music interface is simple and user-friendly, and a wide selection of scenes, emotions, and genres makes it an excellent choice for both beginners and professionals

  • Soundraw: Another great option for an AI music generator is Soundraw. This tool allows you to customize a song using AI-generated phrases, among many other things. The platform has a customization feature that lets you improvise and adjust individual music segments.

These tools can be useful additions to ChatGPT when creating musical content. They can offer more specific musical compositions, which can then be supplemented with lyrics generated using ChatGPT. This can create interesting and unique musical works.

Tips for using AI in music creativity

  1. Be specific in your requests. If you're looking for lyrics for a song in a certain style or on a specific topic, indicate that in your request.

  2. Use ChatGPT as a source of inspiration. Even if you're not completely satisfied with the suggested text, it can serve as an excellent starting point for further creativity.

  3. Don't be afraid to experiment. Art doesn't have to follow strict rules, and AI is no exception. Try different queries and types of creativity.

Practical task: Creating an idea for a song and its cover


Imagine you need to create a song for a music album. Using ChatGPT and Midjourney, you need to come up with a concept for the song's lyrics and a cover for the song.


  1. Open ChatGPT and ask it to create an idea for a song. You can phrase your request like this: "ChatGPT, come up with an idea for a song about a dream that needs to be realized." Remember, this is just an example request, you can choose any theme that interests you.

  2. Once you have an idea for the song, ask ChatGPT to help you write a few lines of the song's lyrics. This will help you refine your idea and give you a starting point for the cover design.

  3. Move to the Midjourney platform and begin creating a cover for your song. You may want to use words or phrases from the song's lyrics as inspiration for the design.

  4. Choose the design you like the most and, most importantly, don't forget to enjoy the creative process!


Let's start with a request for ChatGPT: “Write a song about the drive to overcome difficulties and achieve your dream, despite all obstacles."

Here's the response you might get:

Next, we submit a Midjourney request: "Colorful hills representing the 'mountains' and 'seas' from the song lyrics, with an image of a character ascending to the peak. The sun rises in the background, symbolizing the 'dream' that the character strives to achieve." We receive the following image options:


ChatGPT can become an excellent tool for expanding your creative potential in the field of music. From song lyrics to musical ideas and analysis of musical structures, the possibilities of ChatGPT are virtually limitless. We hope that this lesson will assist you on your musical journey!
