The Professional Composer's Guide - Hardback

Spitfire Audio tells us that The Professional Composer's Guide, written by award-winning composer and Spitfire Audio co-founder, Paul Thomson, is now available in hardback. Previously only available as an E-book, it looks at both the business and creativity of composing music. This is what Spitfire Audio has to say...

The Professional Composer's Guide looks at both the business and creativity of composing music. This engaging and informative book is split into two sections; the first half explores elements of the business, whilst the second covers creativity, including strategies to develop the craft of composing and producing music. Written by renowned composer Paul Thomson, this comprehensive book is for anyone who is interested in becoming a professional composer, or anyone who would like to refine or develop their technical and creative skills when writing music. Interleaved throughout the book are exclusive tips from composer friends on the frontline of media composition, as well as advice from the recording engineer and orchestral contractor perspective.

Paul Thomson said, "The act of creativity has many benefits, and composing can enrich your life in so many ways. At Spitfire Audio, our mission is to inspire a generation of composers -- and I really hope that this book will help you towards that goal."
