4 Tips For Aspiring Composers

By Trevor Yuile

In Trevor Yuile’s V-Log Episode 3, he tracks the course of his day and provides 4 key tips for aspiring composers.

Key points:

1. You need to find your own voice. Find a way to stand out from the crowd.

2. Make sure you stay current on gear. You don’t need to own everything, but you do need to know what tools the pros are using.

3. Know the software. Become a power user.

4. Always be creating. Think about how you can do something different. Keep making stuff. If your brain is used to creating stuff, it will be easier to deliver when the time comes.
