  • Role –Composer
  • Goal – My goal is to learn how and be able to become a good composer.
  • Why – I want to learn how and be able to be a composer for films because I love both music and film and being able to do something that combines them would be great.
  • How – I will achieve my goal by learning about composure and learning about using and creating the right composition for a certain scene.
  • When – I will practice composing and  writing when we get the practice time in class and whenever I can at home.
  • Resources – I’m probably going to need something like a book or a website that will help me learn music composition.
  • Milestones – In a month I want to be able to know exactly what notes sound good with one another and the basics of music composure. In about a year I hope that I will have learned a lot about music composition in film and have created at least two short compositions that were put into a small high school film.
