  1. I have perfect pitch but I am the only person I know with it. Does anyone here have it to some degree? if so, does it help you with composition?
  2. Hello! I am a 17 year old music student from Belgium. I recently wrote a concerto for double bass, and it turned out really well in my opinion. Now that it's finished I actually really want to write a new piece, but I can't find any themes. I was wondering, for those who don't really those "Aha! I've got a theme!"-moments at random, how do you find/look for a new theme? Where do you get your inspiration from? And how do you know if you didn't steal it from an other work? Thanks!
  3. Hello, I'm gonna write Mt first piece starting today. I have written non classical music before (hymns, and CCM) but I want to write some classical music since I love tchaikovsky, cui, Shostakovich, etc. I don't know where to start. What do you recommend? Should I write an outline? That seemed natural. I'm gonna write it for solo piano since that is what I'm most comfortable/familiar with. I might add a second instrument though
  4. It bothers me for a while now, and every time I ask someone he says he'll give it a listen later but it just never happens. You see now, except for the opening bassoon Stravinsky said that he didn't use any folk song in his Rite of Spring. I looked for the original song that drove the inspiration for the bassoon solo and eventually found it somewhere. Now here's my problem. I'm pretty sure it appears in the Augurs of Spring (6:16) and in the end of Round Dances of Spring (10:30). And here it is: Theme and variations on a folk song! Th
  5. Hey guys. A couple of weeks ago I was just listening to some music, and a piece came on that I really enjoyed, but I have come to lose the piece and its composer. I've tried everything to find it, but to no avail. It would be wonderful if anyone could help me out if they happened to know what piece I'm talking about. I CAN give a little information about the piece that I've been using to search for the piece: It had multiple movements. It had a male narrator and a female singer. The subject matter had something to do with either one of the World Wars, but the pie
  6. This here particular piece is one that has been in development for around 7 months now. Initially the goal was to have it sound solemn, however this expanded to a quick uplift from what it once was. The backstory was slightly odd to say the least, and at the times I was writing, I didn't even realize I was changing the mood of the song. So, now I'm looking for feedback, name suggestions, etc. What can I do to improve this song, what do you all think as of yet, seeing that its not even half complete and what would be an appropriate title for it? I'm bad with titles.
  7. This artist had a lot of effort creating a song to aid little children who suffer from illness and treated in a special hospital: Ron Nesher need as many views as he can to help these people, please watch the video and enjoy the song! It is in Hebrew by the way, but every profit from the views goes to aid these in need!
  8. Hi, I'm new at this forum and at writing music. Had a go on a orchestral piece about pirates. Please feel free to listen and criticize. Any input is very valuable :) Cheers!
  9. Hello everybody, I have won a composition competition with my saxophone sketch, which I already posted on the forum, and I can now finish my piece. I really need your help / suggestions / feedback! I will share my worries about the music in points, so that you can answer and discuss these. Extra information: The piece must be around 5 minutes long. The other post with the sketch can be foudn here: http://www.youngcomposers.com/t34939/sketch-saxophone-quartet/ The music ''ends'' at m.88. From m.88 there are sketches: Mm.90 - 97: Possible climax?

  10. Hi all, A friend of mine asked me to write a piano concerto for her - I was already planning one, but now I really began to set the first notes on paper. The early romantic composers' concerti (Schumann, Mendelssohn, Beethoven etc.) have had a huge influence on the piece until now. Sadly enough, I feel I am not able to continue and finish this concerto. It sounds too repetitive and it really bores me listening to it, but also composing. I have reached the capitulation of the first movement. Any ideas how I can recover my motivation of finishing it? I have attach
  11. What specifically do you do to plan out a development section in sonata form? Should the modulations and the order of the themes/fragments follow any sort of predesigned logic (other than 'mix them up')? The keys that should be used are mainly what's bothering me, mostly because my modulations tend to sound forced to me, especially in the development section.
  12. Hello! I am Jo, and I am new in the forum. I am new to composing although I am already a pianist for a long time. May you please give me some tips on how to start such as articles and websites ? I plan to arrange old hymns and turn it to modern sounding ones. thank you! Joana
  13. Hey, I just started composing a little while ago and was hoping to find some advice on a piece I'm working on. I would really appreciate advice on improving and developing the piece further. Thanks!!! Hopefully it's not too bad.
  14. Hello all, I am currently in my final year of studying for my degree in Music Composition for Film and Media and I was hoping to get some advice on finding work as a composer. I am happy to work with any type of media but I find it difficult to believe that most composers just sit around and wait for directors to approach them with pieces of film requiring music. Are there any good websites to use where a composer can go and find work for himself? Should I be offering my services for free? Also are there any particularly effective ways of advertising oneself? Any advice o
  15. Hey Everyone:) TheBandGeek here. Two quick things. First off, I just released my first composition here (http://www.youngcomposers.com/music/listen/7662/dont-stop-believin-saxophone-quartet/). Second of all, I need all your amazing talents and brains to help me out. As a composer, I find it hard to arrange, although arranging contains a lot of the same elements as composition. See, I've got this school talent show coming up, and my friends and I were thinking of performing. Of course, they come to me to get the music:) So, I would basically need a pop medley of sorts. Comment below if you're a
  16. Hi all, I am currently studying a music degree and i need to get different composers views on how they compose. My research project is about the compositional devices and techniques that different composers use in order to convey specific emotions and metaphors to the audience, all music should evoke some sort of emotion within the listener and my research project is dedicated to finding out how composers manage to do this. There are 4 questions to this questionnaire and if you could spare some time to share some of your knowledge I would greatly appreciate it and it would help my project imm
  17. Hi All! I'm trying to load an instrument on one of my tracks on logic pro 9.10, but it won't play on certain ones....is there some type of "channel" that I may need to change for it to play? It'll work on the first channel, but then the rest of the instruments are silent, unless I record using any kontakt sound library.....I'm having issues with those I've already recorded using my old sound library, and I'm trying to change it to Kontakt instruments.
  18. These are some things that I like to keep in mind while composing. I would like to get feedback on them. What do you think of them? Do you think they are good to keep in mind? Do you think there are problems with them? Is there something else that you think is good to think about? (I know it's long. Sorry about that.) There are three parts: big picture points, "small picture" (for lack of a better term) points, and creativity points. The big picture points have mainly to do with structure. I think of a piece like a play with act I, act 2, and act 3. The first act introduces the mate

  21. Greetings fellow composers, I have a quick question regarding sonata-allegro form in a symphonic movement: Is it generally frowned upon for the second subject group to actually be in a slower metric tempo than the primary subject group? E.g. in 6/8 time: Primary subject group: dotted quarter = 120 Transitional phrase: rit. e dim. Secondary subject group: dotted quarter = 80 closing phrase: rall. to fermata || Development: dotted quarter = 120 (Same applies for the Exposition repeat) I've heard of Rachmaninoff being criticized for this practice. Is there any basis in it bei
  22. Hey....people. :veryunsure: Not sure if this is an appropriate question to ask, but I figured someone might be able to help. I'm trying to find a composing/orchestration teacher or class in my area (Dallas,TX). Is there any advice from ya'll on where (or how) to look? I've searched on the Interwebs but haven't found anything yet. :headwall: Also, as a starving composer, what do ya'll think would be best? A private teacher, a master class, an online course??? Thanks for your help. Chop :w00t:

  25. There are a billion amazing composers on this site. I, sadly, am not one of them. So how did you get better at composition? Were you born a prodigy? Do you take lessons? Do you perform a lot/not at all?
