Do you have a great taste in music? Are you the one who can always recognize and appreciate the subtleties in the music selections for every party or occasion? Are guitar rhythms or piano melodies fascinating and compelling to you? The only problem is: you simply can’t learn to play an instrument. Maybe it is because you just don’t have the time to learn, or maybe it’s because you just don’t have a natural talent. The good news is - you can still realize your dream of becoming a successful music composer. You can learn to make the music you love for yourself and others simply by using your computer. That’s right - you can turn your PC or laptop into a fantastic music-making machine. You will be able to perform music pieces through various (virtual) instruments, to create amazing tones and catchy beats with selected software installations and you can even learn how to use your keyboard as your own virtual piano. Each lesson gets you one step closer to your new career, choosing fine tunes, arranging samples and experimenting with different loops. Soon, you’ll be able to produce memorable music melodies or songs that can make you famous, at least among your friends.
