Jonathan E. Peters Music Composition 2
P2P | 17 July 2017 | English | EPUB | 1.07 MB
"Music Composition 2" is the second book in a two book series by award-winning composer, Jonathan Peters, which explains how music is formed and how to compose your own music. Book 1 covers the study of rhythmic and melodic composition, while book 2 covers harmonic composition and compositional form.

Each lesson covers a particular concept (or related concepts). Concepts and compositional techniques are demonstrated throughout the course with real musical examples (pictures and on-line audio samples).

Each lesson also contains memory questions, access to on-line quizzes, listening assignments, and composition assignments. Memory questions serve to summarize and reinforce key concepts learned, while the quizzes tests the students' knowledge and understanding of the material from each lesson. In the composition assignments students will get real life practice using the information and techniques learned in each lesson to write their own chord progressions and entire pieces.

A computer with internet connection, screen, and speakers.

A basic knowledge of music theory. If you do not already have a rudimentary understanding of music theory, it is recommended that you take a music theory course before this course. (See "Music Theory" by the same author)

Some type of music notation software. The notation software demonstrated in this course is the Finale NotePad software. NotePad is a very basic music notation program and has all the necessary functions for a beginning composition student. An important part of music composition is getting your music to paper, and so this course will also develop the students' ability to properly notate their music. This software not only prints professional looking sheet music, it also allows the student to hear their compositions as they are writing them. You can read more about NotePad and download it for FREE at:

Although not a necessity, it is very beneficial that the student have some ability to play the piano (or other instrument)

It is also recommended that you take "Music Composition 1" (by the same author) before taking this course.
