With advancements of today's technology, anybody can download free softwares and create music. So there's no excuses of why you can't get started. Also include tutorials on how to use the two free softwares to make your music and share to other folks.

Although not an exact how to write a song course which usually includes lyrics writing, the course focuses more on the instrumental side of composing. Songwriters will surely pick up something and benefit from the course that will make them more creative in their songwriting process.

Writing and playing your own original compositions will be the most enjoyable and satisfying experience of your life.

Instructor Biography

Tyrone Caballero, Musician and Entrepreneur

Hi there! My name is Tyrone Caballero. I graduated from a high profile school in the Philippines, I love to travel and I also love to try different cuisines. Currently, I’m still working in our family business, trading agricultural stuff and doing some online freelance work as well.

My passion in composing original music started as a hobby 10 years ago, having learned to play the guitar and keyboard on my own. I’m not even sure when I began fantasizing about music – at some point; it became as important to me as the air I breathe. Ever since I first picked up a guitar and started plucking, I’ve been plunging into musical experimentation, day in and day out – the passion was almost overdone in its saturation at times. Because I’ve been self-taught all these years, I really just began covering songs I liked and heard – but as anyone knows, at some point you begin to lose interest. Then things started getting really interesting when I started writing my own music, and I’ve been trying to perfect my thought process and writing for years and years – until I felt ready enough to compile a book on the matter.

Now I can confidently say that I cracked the code so to speak, and now have a simple step by step blueprint to easily get started in writing new music.

A few months back, I realized that I had compiled one of the most impressive simplified techniques in the world of composing music. And it hit me that this stuff could help a lot of other people out there.

This course is the culmination of over a decade of experience and hard work – and they’re my gift to wannabe musicians everywhere. Of course, my journey is far from complete – I’m still learning, playing music, refining my technique and, of course, striving for my ultimate masterpiece.

I hate to brag, but if you’re wondering what my way of composing music has done for me, check out my demo compositions on the introduction section of this course – then you can be the judge of whether or not my method works.
