If someone asks you, “What are your hobbies?” and you tell them that you compose music, the most common response is amazement. When you think about it, composing really is amazing. The ability to create a master piece out of nothing, is an elusive objective. There is no paint, clay, or any relation to objects in the real world. Invisible and ephemeral pulsations in the air are a composer’s final product.
Although music is mysterious in innumerable ways, there are rules and guidelines that make learning music manageable. Complex compositions can be broken down into learnable parts. Through this website I will show you how to create awe inspiring compositions.
This website is dedicated to mastering the techniques of creating memorable compositions. The website is subdivided into two sections:
The beginner’s section contains the basics needed to lay the foundation for more advanced works. Once these techniques are mastered the advanced techniques will be easier to understand.
A house’s foundation is the most important part of the house and takes the most time to build. The basic techniques laid out in the beginner’s section are necessary to grasp before building the rest of the house. A solid foundation will give you a firm footing when viewing the advanced material.
If you already have some musical background, I would suggest looking briefly at the topics in the beginner’s section to make sure you understand them, and if you do have a good grasp of the concepts feel free to peruse the advanced topics.
