Get Started with Music

So, you want to get started and create some music? That’s great! It may seem like there’s a lot to think about and that it’s difficult to get started. Or maybe you think you need to be a music theory genius to create music. But no, that’s not the case! Anyone can create music.

Here are some tips for you if you want to start creating but don’t quite know where to begin:


1. Record

There are two options for those who want to start recording music. You can start by sitting down with an instrument if you have one at home, or you can begin with instrument samples or VSTs in your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), such as Logic Pro or Ableton.

Alternatively, you can create music with your own voice and record sounds and vocals using a voice memo, which works great to start with. There’s a smart app called BandLab that allows you to do just that and more!


2. Learn from Others

When you start playing an instrument, it’s a good idea to learn from the pros. If you listen to popular artists, you’ll notice certain patterns, song structures, and melodies. These structures have been proven to work, and following these patterns will help you learn how to write music.

An example of a pattern in a song can be the song structure, which usually looks like this:

3. Patience

One thing to remember when starting to create music is that equipment isn’t everything – persistence is more important. Creativity and creation come from the person, not the equipment. So, it doesn’t matter if you’re using an old guitar or sitting in a brand-new home studio. Expensive equipment can even lead to more problems than solutions if you don’t know how or why to use it, which brings us to the last and most important tip we can give…


4. Have Fun

Remember, the most important thing is to have fun! That’s why music exists in the first place. Once you get started and begin learning, it will only get easier and easier!
