The quickest and easiest way to start composing is on the black keys. Create your own piece of music. All black keys are “right” notes, and each can precede or follow another. You do not need to write down the notes to this song, just play and memorize. Here are a few tips to get started.
- Create musical questions and answers.
- Don’t jump from too high to too low too often, or it disrupts the “melody.”
- Use patterns in your notes, and patterns in your rhythms.
- Create an optional “harmony” by playing a repeating pattern with your left hand.
