There’s one fundamental thing in music that you can learn which will immediately improve your music compositions.

Without buying the latest sample libraries, without spending months or even years analysing the minute details of music orchestration, and the best news is that you probably already know a little about it.

And that’s melody.

In this melodic music composition course, you’ll learn:

  • A tried and tested method for composing better melodies from scratch

  • How to compose a strong melody over an existing chord sequence

  • What makes a good melody

  • How to compose countermelodies

  • The scales and modes you can use to compose more interesting melodies

I’ve taught literally hundreds of students how to compose music in person, and thousands more online, and I’ve also won awards internationally for my own music, but when I first start teaching a new group of students about composing melody, they often think it doesn’t apply to them.

Maybe you’re into death metal and don’t view that as melodic?

Or perhaps you’re writing minimalist music built on patterns or chord sequences?

Well…here’s the thing: you’re still writing melodic music.

As Leonard Bernstein said: “where there’s music there’s melody, you can’t have one without the other”

I remember one student in particular, Jamie, who was really into rap so didn’t think melody had much to do at all with what he was composing. During our first lesson we sat together and analysed some of his favourite tracks and he went wide eyed, amazed at just how many melodic elements there were in music that he himself had thought wasn’t melodic. He went on to write some of the most intricate, and interesting hip hop music I’ve heard for a long time.

So melodic music writing isn’t about composing “old-fashioned” symphonies or cheesy pop songs. It’s about writing better parts for any type of music.

Whether you’re a music producer with little formal musical training, or a classically trained musician frustrated about why your music isn’t connecting, my course on melodic music is going to help you learn to bring your compositions to life.

When you enrol:

  • You’ll get lifetime access to the music composition program, where I walk you through all of the steps I use to create better melodies.

  • You’ll learn what to listen for while analysing your favourite music, all of the building blocks that are used to put a melody together,

  • I’ll teach you a number of methods of creating and developing a melody, working with harmony, and creating counterpoint.

Remember that you’re protected by a 30-Day-Money-Back-Guarantee, no hard feelings, just in case you discover that the course isn’t right for you.

See you in the course!

P.S. it isn’t your mixing holding you back, you don’t need a new sample library, and you don’t need to be a musical prodigy to write great melodies. You just need to know what makes a good melody and apply that to your own compositions.

Enrol today and I’ll show you exactly how.
