In this workshop we will talk about composition rules that are relevant to all styles of music, and work on these rules in the harmonic, melodic and rhythmic aspect, the 3 fundamental components of composition. Will be given the harmonic support that the student needs in a very intuitive and quick way to assimilate, with dozens of examples. Several different ways of starting a song will be explored, and for each one the exact steps to follow. A series of exercises will also be given that will allow the student to develop the ear and start composing without using the instrument.
