Watch a Real Composer Write Music in Sibelius Ep.3

music composition songwriting tips Jan 06, 2022

Sometimes, all it takes is just one idea to change everything about a song, but we have to let it. This week in Watch a Real Composer Write Music, I write 3 bars which completely changed my outlook on this piece. Coupled with fantastic feedback from my own teacher, this song really starts coming together. You never quite know just how a song will end up, which is why keeping an open mind and open ear is crucial.

In this video, you'll see:

  • How I take a complex instrumental part and simplify it to serve the song better.

  • Why trial and error is sometimes necessary when our ears just aren't hearing what wants to come next.

  • How little details like a voice exchange create little easter eggs for the listener.
