From the author:
In my younger years, I played in garage bands and learned to write music in shared creative spaces. I learned so much from co-writing with others. The simple act of taking a riff and exploring it was so helpful and made me realize I could write music, I just needed a starting point for exploration. In classical music settings, this shared compositional experience is often overlooked.
I've created this book to help musicians find and explore their own composing and creative side through a similar shared process. CO-WRITE includes 15 short musical ideas or "seeds" that are meant for others to grow and explore. Think of me as your bandmate. These are ideas I am bringing to band practice. What can you add to them? What can you change about them? What can you do to create something more than what I've given? I've also included audio files of each musical idea, which can be explored with software like Logic, Garageband, etc.
The end goal of this book is not necessarily to write full songs or pieces, although that would be wonderful. If you simply use this book to explore music in a way that might be new to you, I would be thrilled. Whoever you are, I hope you find joy and creativity through the process.
