  1. Writing music is a lot easier and more intuitive if you start with a motif seed. Instead of conjuring up every note and bar from your imagination, all you have to do is let the motif indicate what the next branch is, and then trace out the whole tree wherever it leads you. By using one motif and rearranging it, the music is guaranteed to be fractal, because it was built using the same system of cascading self-similarity that is found in the geometry of nature.

  2. I love playing "Compose Yourself" with my piano students. They get so excited to be able to hear their compositions instantly with a full orchestra.

  4. I really want to purchase and use this program with my piano students, but I have been carefully teaching them to not write notes that look like lollipops, or upside down lollipops. I really want them to see correct notation.

  5. "Your style has changed; it's so much better!"
