Writing Music

INTRODUCING CONTEMPORARY COMPOSITION

One of the most challenging aspects of contemporary composition can be understanding the instrument(s) you're writing for. This series aims to help with that!

Each month, we'll upload a new hands-on guide to an instrument, by a professional composer or performer. They'll give you the lowdown on all the interesting sounds and devices they can make, and show you how those sounds work. Enjoy!
