As I tiptoed for I hoped not to make any sound on the hardwood floor of the room I saw her playing a quite large black box with the word Yamaha. There were golden levers that she kept pressing her barren feet onto again and again as both of her hands were flying across the long ivory keys. The keys had little splotches of yellow as if they had gone through some trauma, but it was the music that I focused on.

In this Article: Article Summary Understanding Common Structures Getting Inspiration Finding Your Words Keeping Music in Mind Wrapping Up Getting Extra Help Sample Lyrics Community Q&A You can have the best song melody in the world, but if your lyrics aren't good, it can drag down your whole song. A fan who read my advice for pianists article asked if I'd write a similar article for beginning composers. So, I've put together these 12 composition tips for anyone who would like to compose music for the piano. 1) Start With the Melody. You don't have to come to the piano with an entire song already in your head before you start composing.
These are all good questions and I hope to answer them in this lesson. The very first thing you need to do is pick a key for your song.
The key of the song is the scale that your chord progression and melodies will be based on. I am going to use C major for an example, because it is an easy scale to work with.
As you learn more scales, you will begin to get a feel for what emotions relate best to certain scales. Now that we know our song is in the C major key, what chords do we use?
A lot of popular songs use three basic chords. These chords are the I, IV, and V chords. In the key of C those chords are C, F, and G. The V chord has a tendency to push the ear back toward the I chord.
Because of this it is common to end a phrase or a musical section on the V chord. The root chord itself gives a sense of closure, so it is good to end a song on that chord.
Ok, so we know what key our song is in, and what chords we are going to use. How do we go about creating melodies that work well with those chords?
It's fairly easy to create a little melody in your head, but you need to transfer it to keys. Well, first and foremost, you know that you are going to be using the notes in the scale that you have chosen for your song, so that narrows it down a bit.
Until you develop the knowledge of intervals needed to really play by ear, try making your melody out of the notes of the chord you are using.
Now, let's just start playing.
I'm going to play the root note in my left hand, and a C major chord in my right. Instead of playing the whole chord with my right hand, I'm going to play around with the notes of the chord to make a melody.
Next I'm going to take the progression to the V chord, which pushes us back toward the C chord.HELP!
