This is my 4th FAWM, and February is now my favourite month.
I discovered the joy of songwriting at a Ladies' Rock Camp some years ago. I play a little piano, and I've sung in various community choirs over the years. I've also studied a little music theory online over the past few years.
My recording skills are limited, so I let Sibelius First (my music notation software) 'play' the instruments on my tracks.
This year I'm going to try to write mostly instrumental music suited, hopefully, for movies or TV. My goal is to write pieces that express different emotions - sadness, awe, fear, etc. I'll try to write suspenseful music too and something suited for comedy. I expect the comedy music will be my biggest challenge.
I've also got an idea for some lyrics for a song too, but I find lyric writing harder than writing music, so I may or may not get it completed this FAWM. I'll try.
I'm also looking forward to listening to a lot of great new songs by my fellow FAWMers.
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
