OK – so WHY do we have to learn these sharps and flat and all of these key signatures? Why can’t I just compose in C Major??? Because when you can compose in other keys you will expose yourself to different timbres and colors of sounds! This will enhance your composition – especially when you learn to modulate your main melody into a new key signature. Modulations provide motion, tension/release, and variety. So learn we will! And trust me, this will be VERY automatic in less than a few weeks.
