Composing Trad: What is, or is there a best method?
I would like feedback from composers who are currently actively writing music and the methodology they use. I hear a tune in my head then play it for a while, then i write it down. This process can take as little as half an hour or as much as two hours, sometimes i will revisit a tune over the coming days but change little or nothing. Then i have to sit down and learn the tunes as i would a tune that someone else has written. Is this normal for a composer?
