Composers. Question how do you compose? Does it come to you all at once? Do you struggle to compose for years? How? Share with us please. I always before had my compositions come to me all at once, Classical and New Age styles. Now I have found a way to compose on demand by choice and please share with us your own special way.I imagine a scene that has inspired me, anything that inspired me.As I roll the scene forward I start to hum and then a melody comes to me after I began to hum. It is as though my brain knows what to do with the humming. I just write down the melody for now and will complete them later. Does anyone else do this? If not what other techniques do you use to compose? Respectfully, Sandy B
