"Yea any kind of teacher just to teach him to loosen up a little because what I was hearing doesn't sound like it will be good for his voice in the long run. Apart from that I cant think of anything else, good luck with the rest of the music."

"Hey Matthew, yeah you're probably right.
I'm kind of person who likes to make everything picture perfect (or at least to go after it).
And this doesn't seem to be good at all. It just doesn't sound as professional as I anticipated.

Vocals could be…"

"Instant thought is Alter Bridge mixed with a bit of Nightwish so nice one with that. My main point of criticism would be the singer doesn't seem to be able to coup with the high notes he keeps trying for. His voice sounds really tight but I would…"

Deborah Young replied to JT's discussion Where do you get the motivation to get into the composition?
"I think just as in creative writing play is very important. Noodle around on your instrument of choice and save interesting melodies for later use or give yourself a challenge (e.g., write 8 bars in Dorian mode, or take the structure of a favorite…"

JT replied to JT's discussion Where do you get the motivation to get into the composition?
"Yes, one of you said that it's simply about state of mind. That's right. Actually for me, the best way to write is to wake up in the morning (that's very unusual, since I compose till late night) on Sunday (for example). I have to be at completely…"

Ario replied to JT's discussion Where do you get the motivation to get into the composition?
"To me, the motivation is being creative... Rarely do I achieve "good" results by forcing myself (similar to Anne Goodwin's feelings). If I know, that the result will be good from that moment to three hours later, then I am motivated. This state of…"

Adrian Allan replied to JT's discussion Where do you get the motivation to get into the composition?
"What works for me is to actually play as much music as possible on an instrument (or more than one). The act of playing as many different styles as possible has far more influence than that of listening. I have shelves full of sheet music - these…"

JT replied to JT's discussion Conception of new song
"I'm totally pleased. :) As for me - I'm not able come anywhere without (at least 30 min) delay. That means, that I'm giving an advice to myself to learn to be more responsible. :) That may be reflected in the music. And since I really like to…"

Tyler Hughes replied to JT's discussion Conception of new song
"For me, its a little of both. Depending on the piece and if it is a commission, a film score, or not (or if I have a particular thematic idea) determines if I am going to sketch out the piece before hand or not.
Lately I have been trying to force me…"

"If you feel, that you are down, try to do the same thing like I do when it comes to writing epic piece of music. Turn off the light, cell phone, close the door and concentrate on your music. Imagine yourself being in the hall, where people feel the…"
