Dainis W. Michelis
"Around 3 months ago, I stumbled upon Dainis' website when looking for resources on composition. I sent him an e-mail asking about his book "How to Write Your Songs Down", wondering about its content and If I stood to gain anything from it, being a student at Berklee College of Music. He replied telling me that I should indeed give it a go.
I used this book to supplement my studies at school, and after completing it, I have nothing but good things to say about it! Firstly, let me assure you that the content in this book is extremely well written and thought out, appealing to both beginners and experienced musicians. To some, I am sure that the exercises inside will appear incredibly simplistic, but do not be fooled by this! These exercises are both unique to this book, and I can say firsthand that they are quite effective.
A key component of this book is, obviously, writing your music down by hand. I cannot stress enough about how important writing music down by hand in some way is. Before reading this book I worked entirely in a computer for my notation, and only wrote by hand when it was absolutely necessary, but after applying this book to my musical actives, and doing some research on
how the human brain acquires and processes information, I write everything down by hand before entering into the computer. The result is that I make far fewer mistakes in every composition and feel like I have a much greater control over everything that's on the page.
In conclusion, I would like to thank Dainis for his incredible caring and kindness for fellow musicians, and for writing such a fantastic book. I dearly hope that as time goes by, this gets the recognition it deserves as a fantastic resource for musicians who want a jump start when it comes to composition.
