We need only three elements to compose music: Tempo + 3JCN notes + 3JCN rests

First Step:

Set the tempo

Second Step:

Enter 3JCN music notes and rests into the textbox below (Look at the picture at the bottom for the most common notes and rests)

Examples: Copy and paste one of the following 3jcn musical line samples into the text box below and hear it:

So you composed music by using only 3 elements: tempo, 3jcn notes and 3jcn rests. Do you notice how much space does a song take? Only one line for 'Happy Birthday'! Western musical stuffs such as staff (stave), time signature, key signature, measure, vertical bar lines, bass clef, treble clef, tie, dot, triplet, tuplets, etc. have been eliminated for good. You don't need to know a lot of Western music theory to write song. You just need to know 3JCN notes and rests.

If you are new to music theory, then read the following BASIC MUSIC THEORY or click this link
