Welcome to the Hall of Champions
Every Monday, I pose a composition challenge to the members of the VGM Academy private Facebook group. Participants share their work as they make progress through their Composition Quest Logs – free downloadable lists of VGM-inspired writing prompts intended to push you outside of your comfort zone and exercise your musical chops. And every week, I choose 1 composer as the winner of our Weekly Quest.
Want to get in on the action? Download the Composition Quest Logs and request access to our private Facebook group.
Below you will find a growing list of composers who not only write great music, but continue to challenge themselves to create something new for sake of personal growth and mastery of their craft. Behold! The VGM Academy Hall of Champions:
