Identifying composer of SM songs – Neil Moore
Found in: Curriculum
Karolee G., Idaho
I have a student who is working on Tear for a Friend. He noticed that in Level 1, the materials say when it’s a song written by Neil, but somewhere between then and Tear for a Friend, that stopped happening. He wants to know:
1. Specifically, who wrote Tear for a Friend?
2. Generally, how can he tell which songs are Neil’s and which are not?
This is a good time for you to have your student reference the Music Books. Every song has the composer listed on the upper right hand corner, including Tear for a Friend (which I composed). In the Reference Materials, the only time the composer is listed is when there are lyrics, as these too are part of the composition. We don’t include the composer when only Reference Clues are listed. I hope this helps.
