You are about to learn the essentials of music theory and how to tell your story in a 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.

Welcome and Congratulations for choosing to Learn the Essentials of Music Composition. You will learn: The elements, the rules and guidelines, the way music works.
Music Theory and fundamentals are super important if you are going to be able to write the musical stories you want to create. Because Music is much like Poetry. In a poem, you dance and play with words and phrases, to convey emotions, to tell a story, to describe things in different ways, that transcend the very language it written in.
Now I am going to teach you the truth about the fundamental elements of music. When I personally got this realization, I truly advanced a lot, as a music composer. I only wish I learned this lesson much earlier. Because I started making music in 1998, and this realization did only come to me a few years ago. So are you ready to learn what I consider to be THE most important thing in music?
Harmony is probably the most difficult concept to learn and master as a music composer. Because we as humans have rhythm in our blood. And humming or singing melodies is second nature to us. But it is really important that you practice harmony as much as you can. Because harmony is what makes music bigger, bolder, and more powerful.
