Hello all! I've just joined the YoungComposers forums and was wondering if I could have some advice?
I've been composing for one year now and have progressed rapidly in terms of musical knowledge in these past 12 months or so. I've composed a few pieces but none I want to add to my "official list of compositions" as most of them were composed when I didn't know that much about theory or form.
Lately though I've been having a few problems composing.
I usually don't find it hard to compose music (in a writer's block sense) but I find it hard to get motivated to begin/continue composing a piece. I often procastinate by going on my computer to listen to music instead of starting my own piece or continuing the piece I've just began.
I really need to get over this because I know Iove composing dearly and have hardly composed anything this year.
