Hi everyone! I've been searching everywhere for a composition teacher, but without success. Any suggestions on where I can find one? I tried to find a composition teacher locally (I'm from Singapore) but sadly it seems that most of them are more interested in avant-garde modern music rather than classical music. Also, if any of you are interested in teaching composition, I would love to learn from you! I've been listening to many pieces posted here and I'm really impressed by you guys' compositional skills and creativity. Regarding myself, I am currently a secondary school student and I want to learn the classical/ early romantic style of composition. I've attempted to compose my own pieces without guidance, but they didn't turn out as I had hoped. I understand that composition is not easy to learn, but I am ready to learn from the basics. I play the piano and have some basic music theory, so learning composition won't be a completely fresh start for me. If you are interested, please feel free to leave a comment here or drop me a message! Your recommendations or willingness to mentor would mean the world to me 😉 Best regards, Saltypenguin
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:
I got a new composition teacher in college because my old one retired. I write very melodic based stuff - very catchy melodies that make people whistle it later on, and that's what I like to do. My new teacher says everything I write is "too based on pitch". Does anyone have any advice on how to handle this situation?
