I was wondering...There seems to be SO many aspects of composition (basic music theory, eat training, counterpoint, harmony, instrumentation, orchestration...) where does someone start? You study the basics first, but then after that where do you go?
I'm just starting out and am a little confused by all of this information, so it would be helpful to know where to begin. I've I have two semesters of theory and ear training done at my college and have several books, but I really don't know where to start, so any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
