Music by Numbers

Music composition is easier than most would think. With a minimal understanding of simple concepts such as rhythm, harmony and melody, anyone can create music, without even needing to know how to play an instrument. This new book from James Stevenson is designed to make these concepts clear to everyone.

This unique, work-while-you-read book is broken into three sections: Writing your first composition, Recording and Projects. In the first section, the techniques that go into writing music are discussed, with practical tasks for the reader to undertake. The second section offers advice on how to record your music and get it up to release-quality, while the third outlines composition projects in a range of genres, catering to musicians of all levels of ability. The book, when released, will be available on Kindle and Paperback from Amazon. The book launch event is on Saturday 15th September 2018 at Banbury Literary Live, which is being held at the Mill Arts Centre.
