You want to compose music, but you don't have formal training. You constantly have ideas, but don't know how to develop them. You want a better grasp on the fundamental concepts of musical composition. It's time to get some practical advice.
If you’re like me, you didn’t choose to be deeply fascinated by music.
While life seems to frequently take me away from music (I didn't finish my music degree - history instead. I became an Army Helicopter Pilot. I worked construction for two years, and I have three kids.
Through it all, I keep getting pulled back to music. So in 2011, I decided to leave the Army and set out to become a film composer and started Art of Composing.
Fast forward 7 years, and I am scoring a soap opera, and getting work as a composer.
Along the way, I learned a lot about teaching myself to compose.
