    Penning a Tune

     When 16, I bought my first electric guitar. I wanted to be like John Lennon or Paul McCartney. I got together with a schoolfriend of mine and we wrote a song. He thought we were amazing because we "made" something that wasn't there before he came over.  ...

    I Have Found My Center.

    I have found my center, my true self, through music. Many moons ago, I fought this idea, in denial, but now I understand that music is all that I am. I've been composing music since I was a child, and I have written new music every single day for the last 16 years (for a time...

    When They Get Up and Dance

    I remember in the tall tree'd park: Darrel on his long dead father's 200 year old violin that he 'liberated' from a  German village as he was moving through and had to snap the neck off, to get it in his pack;  and here we were playing a waltz with it and me ...

    I Don't "write" It, Per Se

    But I do compose and arrange.  Sure, I could write it all down, but it seems too much work at the moment. I'd rather spend my days just letting my fingers dance on the keyboard than holding a pencil in my hand trying to remember what notes I played. I'm sure I could pay someone...

    Living It's Own Life

    I love music and I love composing my own music whether its lyrical or just melodic, if a tune ever springs into my mind I write it down and compose it into something. . . Living. To me, nothing compares to music, and art, any form of creativity. Music is just one way to let your...

    Good Writing Partner

    I moved away from my hometown for a few years, and met some musicians but never ended up playing live in my "new hometown." One of the bands that was trying to make a go of it had a good lead singer. I was playing bass in that project. My buddy asked me if I could turn some of...

    Consumed By Music

    I am consumed by music, and it seems I always have been. If I am not writing it during the day, I am harassed by it at night. It is like a ball and chain attached to my ankle, but instead of a ball and chain, there is a very loud orchestra, and it's inside my head; it is always...

    I have been playing for eleven years

    and my reading skills are not where they should be, yet i love composing piano and i could improvise for years on end. Writing music (especially original music) is like capturing some of your soul down on paper.

    Sitting at my piano and I can't find the right

    notes. Nothing is clicking lately and I don't know why. I used to be able to sit here and just go. Maybe I've lost my creativity. Or maybe I just lost motivation and inspiration. Ugh

    The Goal

    For as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to be a music composer. Something in my heart has always told me that I was born to compose music. I write a lot of music, just for fun. I write a lot of classical music, mainly for strings. I've even composed a full-score...

    A Question For Everyone...

    I find that when I'm listening to already written music or music that I have half written, I sometimes 'hear' things other than the music, generally at the end of a cadence. These things are usually how I think the ending should go. When I add what I hear, it sounds better...

    I just wrote something

    that made me very happy and sad at the same time. The music is a guitar/piano piece that starts with an arpeggio for then to mix with thunder sound effects and later a piano playing high octave notes and a solid beat. All of this in 80 bpm. I wrote the lyrics and recorded the...

    Of course -- I don't play any instruments.
