About the Composition
Composition is a very broad term and can be a little confusing. Students of competition can learn to take music in their head and make it become reality. You can learn to compose any style of music for any combination of musicians. Composition can also be extremely rewarding. Imagine hearing your song for the first time at a concert hall, in a movie or on the radio. Many composers have very successful careers composing music for movies and television.
Composition requires that you learn a lot of information and can be overwhelming. If you try to learn it all on your own it can be impossible. Try taking some lessons with our teacher to help you learn what you need to know to make the song in your head a reality.
