"Composing is easy" says Weiss
-- Composing and writing music has always been seen as a forbidden city for most. After all, how many people know how to do it? Not many. And for those who do learn this art, many years of advanced study is usually required.But pianist, composer, and 'New Age' piano teacher Edward Weiss sees no reason why anyone can’t create their own unique music.
Weiss owns and operates Quiescencemusic.com - a website that specializes in showing students how to play something called ‘new age’ piano, a style of playing that focuses in on self-expression and peaceful moods. When asked how he teaches people how to write music and compose, Mr. Weiss responds...
“I teach students how to complete a simple 8-bar phrase first. By working in small sections, would be composers learn how to complete something quickly and easily. And once they can do this, they begin to understand how most music is created in sections. After that, it's all down hill.”
