I wanted to know if there is a way to give sections a significance throughout the song, making the song unique in it's own way. I'd really appreciate if you'd be able to help me, my frustration is at a certain point where I'm starting to lose confidence in my composing skills. Michael - Berlin, GermanyA: As musicians we tend to think of our style of art as a language and just like any language, without structure, without clear intonation and meter, the communication of our musical ideas can sometimes suffer.
