Creative Music Composition is designed to be an introductory textbook for music students. "Creative composition"-composing in your own style, rather than in the style of a composer of the past-is embraced by music educators not only for composition students, but for beginning performers and music educators, and is often offered to all music students and non-music majors who wish to enhance their musical creativity. With 25 years of experience teaching fledgling composers, the author tackles the key ingredients that make for successful composition, including: stimulus to the musical imagination; discussion of a variety of current musical languages; analysis of many examples from contemporary scores; technical exercises; suggestions as to how to start a composition; structures; and examinations of works from particular genres. Wilkins covers several musical languages, from folk and popular to serialism; analyses various rhythmic forms; suggests approaches for composing for a variety of instruments, from traditional to electronic ones, as well as for the human voice; addresses the nuts and bolts of score preparation; and offers career advice. For all composition students-and for music students in general-Creative Music Composition offers a clear and concise introduction that will enable them to reach their personal goals.

Experiencing Music Composition in Grades 3-5 is a practical guide to new, innovative, and natural composition techniques for young composers. Music Educators Michele Kaschub and Janice Smith bring a wealth of experience to bear a unique and thoughtfully curated series of materials that help teachers connect music education to young composers' everyday emotions and activities . Divided into four sections, Kaschub and Smith's book illustrates a creative roadmap for instilling a sense of creative independence in students ages 8-11. The first section introduces readers to three distinct compositional ideals that are as educationally significant as the music they help create: feelingful intention, musical expressivity, and artistic craftsmanship. These capacities help springboard children's work from sounds and brief musical gestures to thoughtfully created, expressive musical pieces. Section 2 includes fun and imaginative lessons that are accompanied by Sketchpages-graphic worksheets that support deep consideration of a project's purpose during the compositional process. Lessons also include invaluable suggestions for productive sharing in a variety of formats. Section 3 offers guidance and strategies for sharing work, providing feedback, and encouraging future growth in a manner that fosters a positive learning experience and acknowledges each composer's musical autonomy. Section 4 contains additional teacher guides focused on creating original music in different genres. These guides outline multiple approaches to corresponding lessons and jumpstart activity while serving as developmental models. Experiencing Music Composition: Grades 3-5 offers new ways to promote not only creative intuition in children but also independent thought, preparing students for a fulfilling relationship with music.

The state of contemporary music is dizzyingly diverse in terms of style, media, traditions, and techniques. How have trends in music developed over the past decades? Music Composition in the 21st Century is a guide for composers and students that helps them navigate the often daunting complexity and abundance of resources and influences that confront them as they work to achieve a personal expression. From pop to classical, the book speaks to the creative ways that new composers mix and synthesize music, creating a music that exists along a more continuous spectrum rather than in a series of siloed practices. It pays special attention to a series of critical issues that have surfaced in recent years, including harmony, the influence of minimalism, the impact of technology, strategies of "openness," sound art, collaboration, and improvisation. Robert Carl identifies an emerging common practice that allows creators to make more informed aesthetic and technical decisions and also fosters an inherently positive approach to new methods.

Introduction to Music Composition Organicism in Music The Elements of Music Composition gives composers the missing puzzle piece to create musical works that endure and become richer and more meaningful with each performance. Composers learn how a musical work can grow out of a single seed and connect the different disciplines within music composition. Applying the concepts in this book will help composers create highly effective works that resonate with audiences. The education of a composer typically includes instruction in subject areas that are designed to teach composers about the methods that composers of the past used to create original works: ◆ Counterpoint teaches composers to combine multiple melodies that create harmony. ◆ Music theory teaches chords, progressions, and how to write established harmonies. ◆ Orchestration colors a musical work and adds depth. ◆ Form serves as the container for expansive musical ideas. These cornerstones of music composition are important to the development of a composer's technique and skill, but they do not teach how to think like a composer. The Elements of Music Composition introduces the concepts of coherence and comprehensibility, which results in a single theory of composition that is flexible and teaches composers to think like the master composers of the past. This book provides the missing puzzle piece for composers who want to learn how elements in music can work together to create an organic and coherent musical work. Designed for Composers of All Levels Pulling back the veil to reveal how master composers create original works Deconstructing the dogma associated with the seemingly impenetrable art of music composition is one of the primary aims of this work. Composers are introduced to the concept of organic music and begin to develop an understanding of how coherence and comprehensibility play a major role in the creation of musical works. Understand the Principles Composers Use to Create Masterworks Music theory is only a stepping stone to the creation of original music compositions Music theory teaches a composer to create derivative music of an established style. While music theory is essential to learning how the masters constructed their musical works, it doesn't necessarily teach composers how to compose original music. This book shines a light on the process of composing music by showing how composers can use melody, harmony, form, orchestration, and counterpoint in a connected process where every element contributes to the composition and serves a role. A Practical Approach to Music Composition Without Arbitrary Exercises The craft of music composition is revealed through a careful review of the elements of music Composers will not complete exercises, improve technique, or learn the typical concepts addressed in your average music composition course. This book also does not prescribe generic exercises that instruct a composer to create a melody on an established chord progression, fix voice leading errors, or create modulations to scripted keys. Learn a philosophy of music composition based on centuries of musical development. Travel deep inside the process of composing to reveal fundamental principles that can be applied to almost any style of music. The 3rd Edition includes minor updates to make it easier for customers to read and view the printed musical examples.

Music is an art form whose medium is sound organised in time. Common elements of music are pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics, and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture. The creation, performance, significance, and even the definition of music vary according to culture and social context. Music can be divided into genres and sub-genres, although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to individual interpretation, and occasionally controversial. Within "the arts", music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art, and auditory art. To people in many cultures, music is inextricably intertwined into their way of life. Music is known to have many benefits for health, ranging from inducing relaxation and sleep to improving a depressed mood. Music also enhances cognitive function such as attention to task, communication, learning and memory. This book gathers the latest research from around the globe in this dynamic field of study and highlights topics such as: rap music and its effect on sexual attitudes, music videos and risky driving, burnout and music use, music memory and the right hippocampus, and others.

Fundamentals of Musical Composition represents the culmination of more than forty years in Schoenberg's life devoted to the teaching of musical principles to students and composers in Europe and America. For his classes he developed a manner of presentation in which 'every technical matter is discussed in a very fundamental way, so that at the same time it is both simple and thorough'. This book can be used for analysis as well as for composition. On the one hand, it has the practical objective of introducing students to the process of composing in a systematic way, from the smallest to the largest forms; on the other hand, the author analyses in thorough detail and with numerous illustrations those particular sections in the works of the masters which relate to the compositional problem under discussion.

During the twentieth century, electronic technology enabled the explosive development of new tools for the production, performance, dissemination and conservation of music. The era of the mechanical reproduction of music has, rather ironically, opened up new perspectives, which have contributed to the revitalisation of the performer’s role and the concept of music as performance. This book examines questions related to music that cannot be set in conventional notation, reporting and reflecting on current research and creative practice primarily in live electronic music. It studies compositions for which the musical text is problematic, that is, non-existent, incomplete, insufficiently precise or transmitted in a nontraditional format. Thus, at the core of this project is an absence. The objects of study lack a reliably precise graphical representation of the work as the composer or the composer/performer conceived or imagined it. How do we compose, perform and study music that cannot be set in conventional notation? The authors of this book examine this problem from the complementary perspectives of the composer, the performer, the musical assistant, the audio engineer, the computer scientist and the musicologist.
