I am a Sophmore in high school. I would like to become a video game/film composer. I play the trombone and am trying to teach myself piano. And if a job in the composing business doesn't work out for me I can also be an electrical engineer. But i would rather have a job involving music. But i was wondering what I can do to improve my composition skills for that kind of composition. I would like to get started ASAP and any help is welcome. Thank you very much :).
Also, if it helps, i am on a mac that doesn't have the system requirements to hold the newer music programs... Maybe if they are older versions it will work though.... I have Finale PrintMusic 2010 on it but that is the only music program on there besides GarageBand.
