Tips on how to write music for a song:

Decide for which target audience when you write music for your song

If you write a music only for yourself, you are not limited in your self- expression. But if you are composing music for other people, it should be understandable for them also. For example, the songs in a rock style won’t be accepted by a large number of elderly people, while tracks in chanson style will be pleasant for them.

Give in to temptation of using different accessory programs

There are many computer programs with the help of which you can compose a song just using an arranger. However, in such a case your song won’t be from your heart. Composing a song is not the same thing as writing an essay or scientific work where you may rely on custom thesis writing service. Check each note in your work because you are an author and only you will responsible for the final result.

Do not afraid to be un-ordinary

Do not blindly follow the rules of music theory. If your muse leads you to a violation of the generally accepted theory, following it for finding the new forms of self-expression. Probably right now you are opening a new trend in the music world and would inspire other musicians for the new developments.

There is no need to chase after excess complexity of the melody

Hits are usually not the most intricate melodies. All ever known successful songs are well remembered and convenient for singing.

Stop keeping away the reprises

Reprises are good for your composition as they help for perception and memorization. It sounds perfectly well when some fresh note is appeared in a familiar chord row – for example, a transition to a different tonality or unexpected chromatic move.

Bring a sense for your melody

Composing of the senseless songs won’t give a satisfaction neither you nor your listeners. Think carefully about the semantics of your song and try to insert in it a certain feeling and mood.

And finally, I would like to wish the creative achievements and inspiration for the beginners and for the advanced musicians . After all, it is a muse distinguishing a profession, which can be mastered by anyone from the real creativity.
