An Introduction

Recommended Posts

One, don't be hatin' the theory - it only leads to perfectionism if you only learn the grammar and not the actual theory. People who use theory for perfectionist reasons in composition are people that don't understand that it's only applicable after the fact. Two, introduction thread is this way. See you there.

Other than that, welcome to OCR - I hope you enjoy it here. Post some music, chat, something; it's always better here when you actively participate.

I'll admit that I have trouble with certain parts of music theory as I haven't had a formal class on it yet, but I don't hate it. It's important to have an understanding of scales, harmony, counterpoint, among other things, but if one absorbs the more complex parts without knowing how to apply it to their music, they would be better off using simpler theory that they understand.

Experimentation and freestyle improvisation allow ideas to come out naturally that can later be organized by applying theory. Of course, you could go the other way around, but that's not the way I compose all the time.

Anyway, thanks for the welcome.
