Présentation de l'éditeur

Become a Composer Today

The Problem

Most books about music composition are not really about composition. They are about specific points on music theory, or they are written for grade school classes. They either assume too much or too little. They are too dense or too thin.

The Solution

Finally, a book for everyone frustrated with learning how to compose music. Are you just getting into music composition? Have you been composing for a few years but don't know where to go? Are you an advanced composer, but loosing direction or motivation? Music Composition 101 is for you.

Since August 2011, has been helping people on their path towards becoming a great composer.

Just read a recent comment from the website --
"It’s quite surprising that you haven’t got much recognition. I’ve looked hard and there really aren’t any websites that cover such a wide range of music information as this. You have done more than any of those heavy theory books will ever do. I think you’ve revealed the fun, interesting side of composing and made it within the reach of anyone- rather than the boring side that can only be attempted by advanced professors. You help us believe that we can produce the same compositions as people with degrees. I believe that one day Art Of Composing will be the site that every budding composer visits regularly."

This book is a compilation of the very best of Taken from articles over the first year, they explain the fundamentals of composing, the mental aspects of being a composer, and some very down to earth introductions to music theory. This is a one stop shop for learning the art of music composition.

The Mental Game of Composing

Composing is not just some mysterious thing that happens in the brains of geniuses. Normal people can do it too. Approach the topic from the right frame of mind and see your compositions become great.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disorganized and poorly written 1 décembre 2013
Par Alejandro Mallea Favreau - Publié sur
I was looking for a "101" kind of book on composition, and was hoping this would be it. However, there are several things that made it a disappointment.

Firstly, it is poorly written. There are so many, SO MANY typos in the book that it's distracting, making it hard to read. For example, there are many pairs of words with no space between them, so typical of a copy&paste with a hasty removal of extra lines.

Then there are other mistakes that are not typos. "Your" might be a standard replacement for "you are" in cellphone chats and graffitied walls, but it is out of place in an academic book. The same with "it's" and "its", and those are the two that were most notorious to me.

Secondly, it is very disorganized. It lacks a clearly structured line that one can follow and track. It says at the beginning that the book is "a compilation of the very best of [...] but too often there are phrases like "in today's post", which should have been removed for book format, and WAY too often the author uses a term or concept X without defining it, saying "I will talk about X later", but "later" is actually too late, and the definitions --when they come-- are usually incomplete and many are accompanied by references to a single book that is cited again and again.

It appears to me that the author just saw the business opportunity and quickly dumped the whole contents of his blog to an editor, moved a few parts here and there, added a few welcome words and shipped it without even using a spell checker.

On the plus side, there are two or three sentences here and there worth remembering (but nothing that you can't find in a self-help book, like "have discipline" and "be consistent"), and a good set of links at the end (but nothing that you can't find in the blog or in Google).

Finally, don't fall for the price argument ("it's cheap", "you get what you pay for", etc.). I'm critizicing the book, not its price, but it if has to come to that, not only there are free books and blogs that are well written and a pleasure to read (without the need of paid professional editors), but in these days even the spell checkers are free.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Poorly written and edited. Nothing like a real 101 course. Still useful. 27 décembre 2013

The writing is a scrambled mess, with no visible attempt to organize the blog posts into a structure more appropriate for book form. Frequent, glaring errors of basic English (e.g. "your" where any middle schooler should know to use "you're") distract from the content. I suspect I've put more effort into editing this review than the author did the book.

Also, the title is misleading. This contains nothing like the content you'd get in a freshman survey course on the topic. It lacks the depth and rigor of even a light "101" course.

That said: There's enough information in here that someone with a bit of background playing music (but little to none in composing), and patience to plod through the execrably edited text, can glean some helpful tips on the process of composing.

I'd say it's worth the $3.99 I paid. To charge any more than that, the writer had better avail himself of an editor.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 This book is an excellent tool for "composing with a purpose" 28 octobre 2014

This book is an excellent tool for "composing with a purpose", and not just coming up with tunes as the mood hits you, which is what I did as a music major in college. It's provides a great starting point for composing, especially for those who didn't major in music composition.

At first look I thought this book was going to tell me info I already know and it did some, but it gave me a new way to look at composing. I would recommend this book for anyone who knows music theory or even a beginning composer. Thank you Jon for taking the time to compile your thoughts into a book about composition.
