Hi Mr. Wintory,
I'm heading into the music industry, & I'm also learning to write songs, hoping to include scored pieces like your works. Are there any tips/advice you'd have for beginners? Thanks

If you're just getting started there are two things of great importance for you: 1) Always be listening. Listen to music constantly, and of as many genres as you can think of. You should become a musical citizen of the World and do your best to kick over every rock out there.

and 2) Realize that music is an inward process. Writing something truly meaningful is very hard to do, and takes lots of soul searching and introspection. Focus very diligently and what's inside.
