When words fail, music the saying goes. Expressing yourself through music by putting words to notes and notes to words can be easy; yes, easier than you may think. This book is a treasure chest of ideas for anyone interested in composing. Simple ways to spark the creative process are included, such as taking the musical letters in your name to form a melody. Step by step, you will see how to actually process the notes into music. Norse Song by Robert Schumann shows how he used the four musical letters of his friend GADE to compose the piano solo.
