Hi everyone!

I have once again fallen in need of your help. I don't have access to a piano to help me compose any 'real pieces'. Everything that I write is simple and I think that by using a piano, it would help me in the most tremendous of ways. Since I am a child, I cannot but a piano and my parents won't buy me one. I play the violin, could that help with composing? How many of you don't compose with a piano? If you don't, what's a good way to compose without one?

Thank You!

I've never composed at an actual instrument, only ever while sitting at a computer. I have a pretty good auditory imagination though, and also it helps that I have perfect pitch. I would encourage you to compose anyway, just with what you have. You're not going to be too limited by not having a piano I reckon.

I too have perfect pitch and I sometimes improvise an entire piece on the piano. Most of the time though, I write in notation software without using an instrument first.
