I can noodle around with a midi keyboard and Reason and stumble on some good riffs every once in a while, but I really would like a sounder basis for writing melodies and arranging. What the best way to go about that? Piano Lessons? Music Theory lessons? The immediate purpose of this is to produce electronic dance music, but I'd be interested in learning either Jazz or Classical as well. If you suggest music lessons-- what's the best way to find a teacher that specializes in that kind of thing? I'm not interested in performance, just composition.
