Sight Singing and ear training are very similar. Both require solfege. I am trained in solfege from Berklee College of Music in Boston and I have taught it as a choir director in public and private schools for 30 years.
Compositions and songwriting are very similar in many respects. The ability to organize your original creations intelligently and cohesively is important. Also, arranging skills are very useful for all song writers and composers as well as basic theory and digital notation software. I use Finale.
I have taken 2 years of formal voice lessons and have been singing as a "gigging" professional musician for 40 years. I have also been a Choral Music Director for 30 years for grades 5-12 in various public and private schools.
