How do you Compose?

We discussed  the different ways we all composed and found there were many different ways, with one way not being the correct way. Here are some of our processes:

  • Get a musical idea (melody, motif etc)
  • Start at a Piano/Guitar/Instrument
  • Improvise
  • Have a non-musical idea – Stimulus
  • Start with the harmony
  • Start with the melody
  • Make a plan – Structure
  • Have fun
  • Use graphics
  • Explore an instrument
  • Practice your instrument but get distracted and start improvising
