Is writing a music easy?

Yes, of course! Writing a music is easy. The best way to craft the perfect song is to know the songwriting basics—and know them well. Before you start writing you need to loosely define what you’ll be making. A song should answer a question. Ask and answer it with the parts of your song. Put your questions and answers right in you lyrics.

How do you write a song?

Writing songs is like writing poetry.

First, think of the main thing you want to say in your song. Then start to write a short poem about it, this poem will be your chorus which you will repeat.

Then think of how to start of the poem or story. (this will be your first verse you need around two different verses throughout the song that give an inside into the story )

You could start of by saying how much your mom means to you, then in the chorus go to how you lost her and the complications. Finally the second verse could be about getting over it. Then it goes to the chorus. If you want you could add a bridge or pre chorus.

After you are done writing, think of a melody using the syllables. For example the phrase“wildest dreams ” has 3 syllables, (wild-est dreams). In music you have to write in a beat of 4/4 or 8/8 or 16/16, so in the song wildest dreams by Taylor Swift she extends the “dreams” to “dre-ams” to get a beat/syllable of 4.

After you are done with this step, you can now add the background music!(yay!)

Structure of a song is mostly


Verse 1


Verse 2



You could also add a bridge, per-chorus, ect.

Have fun writing songs!

What are the kinds of music out there?

There are only 13 genres/kinds of music and they are:

  1. Rock
  2. Blues
  3. Jazz
  4. Reggae
  5. Country
  6. Rap
  7. Heavy Metal
  8. Electronic
  9. Pop
  10. Latin
  11. Folk
  12. Classical
  13. Opera

Every other “kind” of music I consider them to be sub-genres and/or crossovers. Rock Music for example, and just to name very of the sub-genres:

  • Hard Rock
  • Alternative Rock
  • Indie Rock

Electronic Music for example and just to name a few sub-genres:

  • Techno
  • House
  • Trance

Heavy-Metal, to name a few sub-genres:

  • Thrash-Metal
  • Grind-Core
  • Industrial

Is it realistic to try to start a band of beginner musicians?


Get to find out where local gigs happen and go along to a few, if you are able. There is often a small scene of musicians in most towns, and gigs are a good place to meet them.

If you are at school you could put up a notice saying you are looking for band mates or simply people to jam with.

You don’t need great equipment to start with. Just bash out a few covers and have a laugh!

What is the better way of learning music?

The same way you learn any language proficiently (and believe me, music is a language. Many languages, actually, a whole family of them.)

Immersion. Start with the basics of some means of making music. Learn some scales on a piano or violin, work on singing with good diction and tone, fiddle with a clarinet or trumpet, or learn some basic conga rhythms, or a nice swing pattern on drum kit. Pick up a jug and blow on it, or just learn to clap on 2 and 4 (as opposed to 1 and 3. Damn savages.)

Then, when you can make good, or kinda-good, sounds on your instrument, with good (or kinda-good) technique, just play. You’ll learn so much by just playing with the instrument and trying to make sounds you like, or play your favorite songs by ear. I made it a goal of mine a while back to learn to play piano on my own, with minimal input from teachers (HARD with three semesters of required lessons that I finished this past fall.) Nowadays, with little help from anyone else, bar a bit of refining my technique, I can pick up the lead sheet to most any pop song I know and jam out to it, with either the melody in the right hand and chords in the left, or both playing chords, and singing the lyrics with my ragged contrabassy voice.

I learned to play jazz vibes with a bit of help from my high school teacher, but he was busy, so I taught myself to play with four mallets, learned how to play chords, how to voice those chords, and how to accent a melody line half-decently. Nowadays, I’m a pretty confident improviser in my college jazz band, and I can figure out a good bit of music by ear, or at least find out what sounds okay with the tune, even if it’s the first time I’ve heard it.

Drum set, I learned in high school, just for my last concert, with a classic rock theme. Now, I can accompany singers, guitarists, pianists, etc, with good simple beats and flashy fills. Lotta fun, drums.

Harmonica, I taught myself from age 7, and I’m still chipping away at the hard stuff, but if you need some good bluesy sounds, I got you. Tin whistle, I’ve had for a few years now and I can make some neat sounds on it, and play a few folk tunes, plus the Skyrim theme and “Song of Storms.” Classic.

Melodica, trumpet, viola, bongos? Taught myself (for the most part) all of these, and I’m at least kinda okay at playing each of them (not as much trumpet, but I can play the Star Wars theme sometimes in tune.)

My point? While there may be no substitute for a good teacher, if you don’t plan on playing professionally any time soon, Youtube and a reputable instrument shop are your best friend. Or, if you have the guts for it, Goodwill Online and eBay. Plenty of good finds to be had for cheap, if you want to learn an expensive instrument like trombone or cello. Of course, it’s also hard to ensure playable quality when it comes in the mail, but if you shop smart, you can usually save a few hundred, even after making repairs.

Then again, singing is free, so if that’s your style, just go for it. But no matter what you do, singing included, make sure you do look into instrument care and proper technique; it’ll save you from hearing loss and arthritis at 35, trust me. Honestly, though, immersion is the best way to get into music, at least from my experience. Passion and ambition come together to make you your own best teacher, with the internet as a good resource for your “classroom.”

Best of luck, and remember to have fun with your music- you’re not playing if it doesn’t feel like playing!
