How to make a melody more interesting
In the precedent lessons we spoke about non harmonic tones. These notes however, in the costruction of our melody, allow us to obtain only steps between adjacent degrees of the scale we are using.
A good melody is not only done between adjacent steps but a furher element is necessary to give variety.
So what is this element of variety?
It is the disjunt motion.
How can we obtain disjunct motion in the composition of our melodies without using only the chord notes?
It is what you will learn in these lessons in which the first non harmonic tones will be introduced allowing us to obtain disjunct motion and to make our melodies even more interesting.
