Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give yourself at the start of your inquiry?
Currently, I’m coming to the realization that I personally find prefer writing music before basing the lyrics around the melodies. If I could change anything about my original schedule, I would plan to write the music before the lyrics. I spent many work blocks struggling to write lyrics when I eventually discovered it to be a lot easier to write the melody first. After discovering this, I’ve found myself a bit behind schedule, but I’m confident that I’ll be able to pull myself back on track.
Another important thing to note is that it’s not easy to write music during in-class work blocks. Without certain supplies, it can be difficult to maximize the use of my time. I was able to get a significant amount of work done but in hindsight, it would be much more effective to plan to write music at home, and lyrics at school.
