This is a track best begun after you've mastered the basics and built confidence in your ability to work with accompaniment and improvisation. You'll learn how to create, record, transcribe, arrange, workshop, and reimagine ideas for songs/pieces. Our focus will vary depending on your goals. There are lots of ways into the craft of writing music, so we'll discover the methods that work best for you!

You'll get your creative juices flowing with guidance on:

- music theory
- motifs and variations, part 2
- cataloguing ideas with modern devices
- finding a song's "spirit guide"
- building parts
- learning when to break the rules
- arrangements
- lyricism
- digital audio workstations (DAW's)
