Taking the Next Steps

This course goes in-depth into the various techniques that composers can use to refine their craft, improve their skill, and develop their ability to compose effective works. While music composition does require a certain degree of talent, anybody can learn to compose if they apply themselves and study in the right way.

Music theory is a tool that is useful for helping you to analyze and study music. This is an important skill that any composer should develop. It's also mostly useless when it comes to composing original music.

For a composer, music theory has four main purposes:

  1. To stand on the shoulders of the musical geniuses that came before you and absorb a style more quickly. 
  2. To know whether another composer already worked out a more effective way to communicate your ideas. 
  3. To break new ground and create compositions that are truly original and unique.
  4. To communicate intelligently with other musicians and composers about music.
