I came across a free online course on composing for beginners. Thought I'd share! I've only completed the first module so far...but I did learn a thing or two :) https://www.artofcomposing.com/courses/free-beginners-composing-course

Top Ten Reviews: "We spent 40 hours comparing and testing the best music notation programs that cost less than $200. To evaluate them, we took note of how easy it was to create original compositions with each one. We also imported and exported a variety of file types to make sure using the software wasn?t more troublesome than quickly handwriting a song idea. After compiling our testing data, we believe Notion 6 is the best software for most people because it has all the tools you need to compose complex and basic scores and has an intuitive user interface." http://www.toptenreviews.com/software/home/best-music-notation-software/

Something I wrote. Not one note has a circle.

Wanted to thank those who have recently joined. Welcome. I've only been writing notes for a couple of years and probably have more questions than answers. I also write drum music which to me is a whole other animal.

Time signatures and what they mean? The two numbers in the time signature tell you how many beats are in each measure of music. A piece with a time signature of 4/4 has four quarter note beats; each measure with a 3/4 meter has three-quarter note beats, and each measure of 2/4 time has two quarter note beats. ... It means each measure has only four beats. The top number of the time signature tells you how many beats to count. This could be any number. Most often the number of beats will fall between 2 and 12. The bottom number tells you what kind of note to count. That is, whether to count the beats as quarter notes, eighth notes, or sixteenth notes. So the only numbers you will see as the bottom number (the denominator) will correspond to note values:

For some, writing music is the only way to get the notes out of our heads. A musician, who struggles to play has few options: writing and composing become an integral part of this internal struggle. If you would like to learn, if you would like to teach... you are welcome here. If you can read or write music and have a contribution, please join. Let's explore learning tools, techniques and things we have yet to think about. Join me here and discuss our abilities to create fantastic music. ~ Thanks
