Recommended Composition Books for Piano and Beyond

These are some books that I would recommend for learning how to compose music. Hearing and writing music is very good book for people that don't want to learn as much music theory and just want to compose. For music majors, this book will be very basic and I would recommend the books below.

However, for people that haven't taken music theory classes and want to become better at composing as a hobby. I recommend this book. Please click the link below to read additional reviews on Amazon. This book is a fun read!

This following two book are for people that are more serious about learning the theory and how music works. These books are often used in colleges for students and go into depth as to how to compose music. These books aren't as fun and are a lot of work haha. Also, there's no answer this is for serious learners only. Please check it out and let me know what you think.
