Initiating Musical Composing

The band is still performing across the city with tremendous success, heading in full steam to the future; beside this my skills were still evolving steadily. At the age of 16 I had my first experience with musical composing when my father asked me to compose 3 songs for him from a play he prepared for children's theatre called "Al Ghareeb wa Al Amira." I was totally surprised by his request, but I accepted the offer and started working on the songs to enter the world of musical composing with the assistance of my father.

At this particular point I felt my life as a musician has started for real. I used to compose every poet and try to improvise a genuine piece of music which carries my print. This taught me to differentiate between rhymes and to know what can be composed and what could not.
