Justin Markowitz performs his own composition, world Premier: World of Wonders with the California Chamber Orchestra. Justin often told me how much learning theory, the MTAC Certificate of Merit(TM) program and Guild auditions helped him develop his creativity composing music. He also felt practicing scales, chords/cadences and arpeggios in all keys was very valuable. It helped him to free himself and modulate into many keys, simply being more creative.
