Music Composition Lesson Overview

Online music composition lessons are taught by composer, Kevin Ure. More information about the music composition instructor can be found by visiting his website, The Music of Kevin Ure.

Music composition lessons take composers through a series of online music composition courses aimed at developing the composer's knowledge of music theory in a practical manner by teaching composers how music theory relates to the organization of music. Starting with the fundamentals, music composition lessons teach concepts of unity, variety, and the aesthetics of musical form. While formal training in music isn't required to begin studying music composition, a commitment to learning about basic musical concepts is highly encouraged. 

Composers develop their composition ability through a three-part process that continually repeats:
Composers learn how to write for a variety of ensembles through coursework provided online. Courses provide appropriate fundamental training in music composition while private instruction allows a student composer to develop creatively by writing original compositions. 

This three-part approach to training composers allows music composition students to progress rapidly and develop their own individual musical voice and style.

Adequate progress for a composer requires that the student composer complete approximately two musical works per year and stays active in the current course. One of the works should be performed publicly by a local group or by the composer. Performances can be in the form of a recording or community event.
