Anoush: A Melodic Journey from Classical Roots to Lockdown Inspirations

Discover the Musician's Insights on Training, Songwriting, and the Power of Music in an Exclusive Interview

Anoush ©️ 2023


Today We Have The Pleasure To Have This Great Artist Here On Goathead!


 

GH: What inspired you to start writing music?


Anoush: I’ve been playing piano for as long as I could walk, my classical training started when I was very young, but I have only been writing for a few years. Something awakened in me during the Covid lockdowns and that’s when inspiration really arrived. Once the music started coming to me, it kept coming. Music is with me wherever I go.



GH: Do you think it’s important for musicians to have training?


Anoush: Training with a good teacher who knows what they’re doing is always helpful. Self-taught is fine, too, if you’re self-motivated and dedicated to practice. I’ve heard many people say you don’t need to know how to read notes or understand music theory to be a good musician, but that’s just not true. If you’re serious about music, knowing the fundamentals will help you a lot. The creative process as a musician is much more fluid if you know the language.


GH: How is your process of songwriting set around?


Anoush: Melodies and lyrics come to me constantly at random times. I’ll jot it down in my notes as soon as I can or do a quick GarageBand recording on my phone, then get back to it later. When music comes to me organically like that, it feels very special… like I’m receiving it from a greater source.

If I want to write something on command, the best way to go about that for me is to experiment with different chord progressions on the piano until I find something that resonates. Once I have the foundation and basic structure, it’s easy to build on.



GH: What motivates you to create music and bring awareness to different situations through your songs?


Anoush: I think it’s important that we keep our hearts and minds open if we want to coexist harmoniously. Of course, that’s not always easy, and sometimes we need a gentle reminder that most things aren’t black and white. The most effective way to communicate nuance, for me, is musically.


GH: Could you share some insights into your next projects?


Anoush: I have an ever-growing list of songs I’d like to produce, so I’ll be working on those next and hope to release another album in the future.
