Keeping a music journal has been one of the best habits I’ve developed to improve my craft as a musician, composer, and producer. In my journal, I include:
- my ideas, goals, progress, and current focus.
- information on music theory and music production.
- notes from lectures and books I’m reading.
- thoughts on life and music in general.
Writing a music journal is proving to be an invaluable asset in my creative process. Hell, I probably would never have started blogging about music if I had never started journaling on music!
In the following paragraphs, I will share with you the benefits I have personally received from starting a music journal and how journaling has improved my craft.
