Hey there, maestro in the making!
First, a big virtual high-five for following your passion! Now, let's dive right into it. You know what they say, 'Be yourself, everyone else is already taken'. A good laugh, right?
But think about it ... this tiny little piece of wisdom isn't only for life advice! Nope! It stands true for music creation too!
You are a composer. You are not just 'somebody', you are 'somebody special'! So, your music should reflect YOU. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Sure, you can and should get inspiration from others, but don't just copy-paste. You're not a Xerox machine, you are an ARTIST! Be authentically YOU!
Remember, when you create a piece of music, you are crafting a story. It's not about the number of notes or complex chord progressions; it's about what you want to say! Even if it's just three notes, make those three notes count! I bet Beethoven's Fifth Symphony is ringing in your ears right now. Yeah, THAT'S the power of simplicity!
And guess what? There is no rush. It's not a race. You're not competing with anyone but yourself. This is YOUR journey, your pace. You don't have to create an epic masterpiece overnight. Heck, Rome wasn't built in a day! Take your time, nurture your ideas, let them grow!
There you have it. That's my take on authenticity in music creation. Remember, being authentic isn't about being different for the sake of being different. It's about being true to your ideas and your music.
So, what are you waiting for? Go on, unleash your creativity! I can't wait to hear what you will create! Let's write the symphony of your life, one note at a time! Rock on, my friend!
Thanks for reading! Catch you in the next beat!
