Hello Ali, you might find this link useful:
just click on the glowing lambda...
the first 7 chapters are introductory lisp; the remaining chapters are 
computer composition. the last chapter (24) talks a bit about csound (i 
have some edits to add to this chapter today).  there are a number of 
kind and knowledgable people on this list that use csound, im sure one 
or more of them can help you with csound related issues as problems 
arise. you might want to check out clm for sound synthesis as well.
good luck!
