An interview with royalty free music composer Jake Schneider aka JAS Music.
My musical background stemmed from when I first picked up the guitar at 9 years old and from then on I played it religiously whilst learning other instruments like bass, piano and drums. Then when I was 18 I started to use audio production software and for the next few years learnt to create my own records! Now I am 24 and have been producing my own stock music for the last year and it’s a dream come to true to sell my original music around the world!
Music itself, and also when I finish an amazing track. When I think I’ve created a great track, I always try to create the next song with the aim of making it better than the last one.
It’s different every time. Sometimes I sit in front of my studio with a ‘blank canvas’ and try out new ideas and play something until I think it sounds good enough to work with, and then sometimes I might think of a melody or song in my head while eating breakfast! The main thing is to not wait for inspiration. You need to be proactive with writing and say you will write a new song everyday no matter what. Inspiration will hit you when you least expect it, but most of the time you need to go out searching for it yourself.
No, music itself is an influence for me alone.
Quite simply I would say just pick up a guitar, keyboard or any instrument and just start playing and write anything that comes to mind – that’s what I did. We all have to start our journey from somewhere and you will find the more you compose and play your instrument, the better you will get as time goes on!
