The Effortless Way to Compose Music : Making Writing Music as Easy as Painting by Numbers
Writing music is not as difficult as you may think because music is a language. It is constructed like a language and it sounds like a language. If you can speak your native language, you can write music. The Effortless Way to Compose Music (Books 1 - 3) is designed for people who have some basic knowledge of music but have never written before. While Book 1 leads to the creation of attractive melodies, Book 2 includes all the information needed to write a complete, beautiful, and professional song. The final book in the series, Book 3, introduces counterpoint and shows how writing several melodies at once can be effortless and can add to the expressive quality of the music.
