My music composition instructor has just posted a new website. On this website he is giving instructions to
basic music composition. Part 1 is already posted. It is a must read for all those interested in writing music. Before taking lessons from him I knew nothing about writing music. Now I have written over 166 songs.
I recommend anyone interested in music to look...I know along the way you will pick up helpful tips. Take a look at what he has written...
I FINALLY FIGURED OUT HOW TO PUT MY MUSIC ON YOUTUBE WITH MY COMPUTER-GENERATED DESIGNS.
IT WASN'T EASY FOR ME!!!
I WANT TO INVITE YOU TO TAKE A LOOK AT "STORYTIME WITH JOSH" ON YOUTUBE.

"THE LITTLE RED HEN"
2.BUANA KIFARU'S BIG FOOT- an original story about snobbishness
3. ONE HILL IS ENOUGH- a story and song about being happy with what you have--- and about making up your mind.

MONSTERS VISIT THE VALLEY, a tolerance story and sing-a-long
I have been a school librarian for 28 years. In 2003, I started writing stories for children, mostly in rhyme. I discovered that I am able to hear the rhythm of the written sentence quite well and I enjoy this type of work. I put my stories on my website at this link:
Several years ago I met a composer of childrens' music who agreed to give me a few lessons. At that time I had little experience with music other than a few piano lessons as a child which came to nothing. I arrived at my first lesson with a poem. I didn't know what I was doing. However,I kept the lessons going, focusing on songs for children and have learned so much.I have even branched out to write some satirical songs, mostly historical. Because I am unable to play the piano well, have a professional entertainer playing and singing my songs into a recorder. He is also able to use my melodies as a base for improvisations. He is amazing!I put my songs on my website:
I notice that my songs are extremely different from other music I hear on this cloud. May I say that what I am hearing from those who post on soundcloud is exquisite, so, thank you all for your contributions.
