I'm studying to be a composer.
How can one learn to compose? By studying what others have done, by digging into the theory, and by experimenting. That's what I do: I study, I learn and I experiment.
I like to create music that is harmonious, that feels natural and good inside, and that connects with the inner self. Rhythm involves us, but harmony makes music stick in memory and it gives it meaning.
Music is part of human nature. Just listen to the music in your head. I’ve had melodies swirling around my head for as long as I can remember, and I love working them into full melodies.
I experiment. I've built a virtual orchestra in my computer, with instruments from around the world. As I go along, I discover new tricks. I hear new effects. I discover more secrets in composition and sound processing.
My current teacher is Ivo Antognini, a composer who teaches at the Lugano (Switzerland) music conservatory. His lessons are direct and get right to the heart of what I need to learn. A competent instructor cuts right to the chase by finding out what you don't know and what you need to work on.
Have a look around. Perhaps you might like something here. All my music is free.
