Create a theme. Arrange a stranger's theme. Win stuff!

Here's how it works:

Make a Theme
From March 7 - March 31, join in the fun by submitting a theme or melody. It can be a single melody line or a chord progression, or both.

ONLY ONE INSTRUMENT PLEASE
(We’d suggest PIANO for this)
Not sure what to do?
Mike Verta can help with that.

Arrange a Theme
From April 1 - April 30, we'll post ALL of the themes anonymously on our website.

Choose your favorite and use it to create an arrangement/rendition/remix with at least 1 Embertone Instrument (and any other instruments).

Theme writers own their creations.
Arrangers
share ownership of their rendition with the theme writer.
