There isn't a best way really, if you can read music, you've got a head start. You can play the melody, or the rythem, and when you're comefortable with that, then start picking it apart and memorizing it in little bites. As for adding to it let your imagination run wild and experiment with different instruments. The possibilities are limitless. If you can't read music, then really the only way to learn a peice, is to play along untill you get it, or find someone who can help. Good luck Don
I am intwersted in learning to distinguish the difference between all the different musical key signiatures. Does your site contain any of this info, since I compose music, and don't have a good background in reading music? Thanks, Don

Why not limit your range when writing music and composing songs to C Major or A Minor first?
Sneaky guitar players then just use a capo to move to a key that suits their vocal or instrumental style, but it is easy to learn to transpose to another key.
You will soon find you are comfortable with C or A Minor, then move to one # or one b.
..and then two sharps, and so on.
