Writing or Composing?
If it's your own music, writing music is also composing music.
Music belongs to everyone. Use it. Enjoy it. Love it. Create it. And WRITE it!
Some believe that composing music is only for professional composers, and would never attempt to write a song themselves.
What a sad limitation, that music composition is somehow only for a selected few...
Who dares to pretend to be a composer before having learned all there is about music theory, harmony, analysis, composition techniques, counterpoint, instrumentation, arranging....?
Well I dare to say that anyone with some knowledge of music can start learning how to write music on their own!
Actually, composing music does not mean that you have to know how to read or write music notation either. But it helps.
I also dare to say that music belongs to everyone. Use it. Enjoy it. Love it. Create it. And WRITE it!
