You want to write a piece of music. You don't have the resources. Well, this is the course for you. In a mere 14 steps, I show you how to write your first piece of music from downloading a free program (Muse Score) to putting the final touches on a simple score. If you can do it with this piece and course, you can use these skills to create larger scale pieces and maybe be writing music for others and get paid.
First, we go through how to set up a new score in Muse Score via setting up a sheet music template. Then, we're going to explore different ways of notating the music via the computer and MIDI keyboards. Next, you're going to explore how to edit, adapt and make your score as close to a publisher-grade score as possible.
The final step is where you are going to put your piece up for sale. In the course, I show you three different platforms on which you could place your music for sale. These include Gumroad, SMP Press, and JWPepper via the My Score Program.
By the end of the course, you will be able to write beautiful, publisher grade sheet music to sell from start to finish.

I am a
singer-songwriter, composer, arranger and orchestrator residing in Southern California. I compose everything from concert band, orchestra, chamber, choral,
and sacred music to folk, singer-songwriter, and rock songs. My two recent singles "Get Away
Devil" and "It Ain't Paradise" have subtle hints of The Eagles
and Coldplay and a few other artists. I try to be relevant once in a while.
I have composed for various short films and video game pilots and even a Godly film or two.
I graduated from California State University, San Bernardino with two degrees, the main B.A. in Music Composition, the second one was music technology, so with this, there will be a lot of courses on composing and composition techniques as well as some courses dealing with music technologylike MainStage, Garageband, Logic Pro, or Pro Tools.
I also play piano and sing. I have over 20 years' experience playing piano and have had five years of vocal coaching. This lead me to teach at an art school over in Pomona, California and later on in 2014, I began teaching at a local music store in Walnut, California. I have been teaching piano and voice there for over three years.
Recently in 2015, I started a music transcription service website down below for all who need sheet music written, arranged, or transcribed for their projects. Contact me if you need any of this!
I hope to help all of you who come to this page with your musical needs!
