As far as I hear the demo of "Grand", it seems great sound module. You might want to apply some good reverb. I use Magnus's "Ambience" which comes with Garritan Personal Orchestra. Ambience is a donation ware.

Just for your information.

That was so smooth like.
I really enjoyed that after a long hard day of baseball.

Let me say again, wonderful. Beats the songs I've tried to compose.

Jeanne W,

Sorry to be late in reply.

I started learning classical piano in my childhood and had learned classical composition for two years. I was in a jazz/fusion band as a keyboard player for about 10 years.

Would you comment on what kinds of things you learned when taking classical composition and which you felt most valuable to you as a composer? How/what you applied to your work in composing music?

Jeanne,

Harmony (4 voices, realization on bass, realization under soprano), counterpoint (fugue), composition of chamber music such as violin sonata, etc.

Everything I leaned from my classical composition lessons is, has been and will be very valuable in my composing. Anywhere in my composition, if possible, I try to wright all the voices "correctly" in the sense of classical harmony and counterpoint except I break the rule intentionally because of absolute necessity.

Also, lessons trained my ear very much. I can imagine written sounds in mind without piano or other instruments to some extent now.

All the above said, I think most important thing you would learn from classical lessons is how professional composer (musician) is serious on each single note of music. And to know what is music, anyway.

Sincerely,

That's great! I wish I'd written it. You should write music for films. Amateur composer? I think you could give alot of professional composers a run for their money.

"Also, lessons trained my ear very much. I can imagine written sounds in mind without piano or other instruments to some extent now."


Just heard it, realy nice and well built, definetly with a strong japanese longing, sorrow
like thematic, you honor your great country with the piece.

I´m also what you could call an amateur composer, altough my classical training just started 5 months ago.

What you said (above quote) realy interessted me, music comes from my head, from there i put on the computer or guitar or more recently the piano, altough after 5 months lessons i realize i can note down simple melodies and harmonies directly on paper, as long as they don´t stray too much from c major wich is the beginers key
as i have come to realize it. Of course tha music
i write is most of the times more complex, and i have also realised by analising my pieces in the computer (know that i kind of know how) that i use a lot of acidental notes in any given key signature.

I dream of the day i can just put down on paper all this going on my head, without having to go home and sit in front of the computer.

Has this happend to you? have you found yourself
being able to imagine writen notes, and progressively more complex music along the years? Do you believe i´ll get better at it with time?

outro,

Thank you very much for your kind words and I would like to answer your question.

I also wish if I could write like Mozart, directly from his brain.

Good composers can write without help of any instruments. Actually, I know Mr. Ikebe, a famous composer in Japan, says he can work (write music) anywhere even in a hotel room without any instrument.

But I cannot. I need piano or computer. What I can deal with in my brain is very simple music.

I think the capability to deal with music without instrument can be trained and get better. The better you get in your solfege the better you can "grasp" your music. So I think it is desirable and recommendable to train your "musical brain" by solfege or other methods.

On the other hand, using instruments, including computer, is nothing wrong in music making. What is important is the music you create but not the process you get there.

So that I recommend to both write music (with piano and computer) and do solfege. In that way, I believe we can be better composers day by day.

Sincerely,


Jun Yamamoto
