Hi, I just joined this forum a couple hours ago.
I was wondering if all the composers on this forum went through any formal studies in music composition and whether you could recommend some books on composing for films. I am also wondering if all of you were full time composers or if any of you are composing as a hobby/part time career.
I am actually a physician who once aspired to be a musician. I have not had much time for music till recently and just begun composing, and playing the piano(after a long hiatus). I would appreciate any advice you could give me regarding my works and whether it is even remotely possible that I could be as good as you guys are in terms of composition.
I love this site and the works represented here!
