Heyo!

Me and a friend of mine are going to create collections of tutorials/courses regarding composing. Tomorrow we are going to shoot a orienting course about mind sets and some philosophies that us composers should think about. Then we'll produce a course on what is needed to start composing. And here is the point where you guys, my young and old, new and seasoned colleagues come into the picture.

Especially if you are new to composing... What would you like to learn? I do have some thoughts already but I wish to hear your thoughts on this one.
Have a happy day!

Thank you @newt! Note taken, could you specify beats a bit more. Do you mean good patterns and grooves and how they are created or..?

Yeah, the different types, or at least some that work with games, and creation as well.
Getting rhythms right is a pain.

@taistelusopoli, how about giving some advice about deciding on what instrument to use/begin with? I.e. you want a tune; do you get a free app from the Android market and tinkle with your tablet? Do you lay down 200,- for some serious software or do you go out an buy a "real" instrument? You can mix and match it with the amount of experience, money or available space people have. Just a thought I suppose.

Advice the students to figure a genre for their composition.

Genres and themes are important.

I wouldn't call myself a musician/composer, I'm more a artist person, and no good at music theory at all. :)
I started using some DAWs since last year and made some tracks for my game. (though they sound amateurish)

Right now, I would want to improve my musical sense on chord progressions (and also be a better keyboard player) As for what kind of music I want to make in the future, I would love to produce folk-like, spiritual, oriental or even grand orchestric theme music cos' I more into melodic, poetic, sweeping epic music that someone like Kitaro or Nobuo Uematsu would make. (one can only dream to reach that level :lol: )

Really hope I can practice more music than other aspects.
