#beginquote# I thought I'd share something. I started composing for the string orchestra before having taken any kind of music theory classes or anything. The only knowledge of music I had was from playing the cello. I didn't even know how to determine key names and what not when I started. Having such little knowledge, I still composed 4 pieces and had them performed in concert about a year ago. Since I started taking AP music theory, I've learned so much it just blows me away. I started really learning all about it in around may. During my learning process I was still composing, and I was able to apply new knowledge to it. Each new composition I did had new things I've learned put into it, and I'm still going. I've only been in music theory for like a month, and I'm flabbergasted at how much I've been learning... I just can't imagin all the things I'll know after the year is over. So I agree with trumpetguru in that you should keep writing songs, even if you might think "but I want to learn this and this first, so it will be even better.." just do it, so you can apply your current knowledge to it. I find I learn something new anyway with each new piece I write. Keep it up, I wish you all the luck! #endquote#
