Quaver’s Studio is home to our most powerful composition tools - empowering students to create original music at!

In QComposer, students compose for the piano by dragging and dropping notes of various durations onto the staff. While exercising their creative songwriting muscles, students are also enhancing their understanding of melody, harmony, chord structures, rhythm, note durations, lyric writing, arranging, notation, and more. Once a composition is complete, students can save it to share with family and friends online or pull it up in another Quaver Creative to continue the songwriting process!

QComposer’s built-in help features guarantee success for even beginning students, empowering students of all levels to learn the science of songwriting, notation, and the basics for learning an instrument offline.

We built QComposer with these unique, cutting-edge features to help students get more out of score-writing, and learn to love creating music in the process:

  • Chord Builder identifies which chords harmonize with which notes
  • Melody Maker builds blocks of one measure melodies
  • Play-Alongs allow students to build layered songs with other instruments
  • QLyrics helps students write lyrics to their pieces
  • Input options allow input by clicking the on-screen keyboard or by dragging notes to the staff
  • Dynamics allow students to add expression to their composition and reinforce the Dynamic terms
  • Patch allows students to select different sounds for their melodies

QComposer is accessible to Students & Teachers with Free accounts. Teachers using any of Quaver’s Programs can create and assign custom QComposer projects via the Teacher Gradebook.

Premium features - including some Melody Packets and the ability to publish a song as an MP3 - require QuaverNotes.
