    How to write music.

    The first thing I usually get asked as a composer is, where do you start when you write a new piece? Unfortunately there is no definitive answer to that question as each piece is uniquely different. In my second ballet, La Feuille Qui Tombe, I started writing 3 minuets into the overture specifically for bassoon, clarinet and cello, but for my massive tone poem Levensverhaal I started halfway through the second of two parts with a solo organ. Needless to say there is no set way to write a piece of music. This however doesn't mean I can't walk you through the necessary steps.
