About This Class

Congratulations for Choosing to go on an Amazing Adventure

You are about to learn the essentials of music composition. The elements, the rules and guidelines, the way music works. Music is a language. But not any kind language. The greatest and most powerful means of communication, mankind has ever invented. 

A language that we all can relate to. A language to share joy and happiness. A language to share grief and sorrow. A language to portrait darkness and evil. And my favorite: a language to share the noble kindness and heroic goodness of your heart.

YOU can have all this POWER

The power to make people laugh, or cry. The power to give the listeners goosebumps on their arms, and chills running through their body. The power... of emotion. Because that's what music is. A dynamic and compelling story of emotions. And you are the both the writer, and the director of this story.

Examples of things you will Learn 

  • The Elements of Music
  • The Foundations and Guidelines of Music
  • The Way to Create Your Music Story full of Emotions
