Brief course description

You want to write a piece of music. You don’t have the resources. Well, this is the course for you. In a mere 14 steps, I show you how to write your first piece of music from downloading a free program (Muse Score) to putting the final touches on a simple score. If you can do it with this piece and course, you can use these skills to create larger scale pieces and maybe be writing music for others and get paid.

First, we go through how to set up a new score in Muse Score via setting up a sheet music template. Then, we’re going to explore different ways of notating the music via the computer and MIDI keyboards. Next, you’re going to explore how to edit, adapt and make your score as close to a publisher-grade score as possible.

The final step is where you are going to put your piece up for sale. In the course, I show you three different platforms on which you could place your music for sale. These include Gumroad, SMP Press, and JWPepper via the My Score Program.

Cody Weinmann bio

I am a singer-songwriter, composer, arranger and orchestrator residing in Southern California. I compose everything from concert band, orchestra, chamber, choral, and sacred music to folk, singer-songwriter, and rock songs. My two recent singles “Get Away Devil” and “It Ain’t Paradise” have subtle hints of The Eagles and Coldplay and a few other artists. I try to be relevant once in a while.
