Composition: here are the notes that make your music more effective (part 6)


The suspension

Today we will cover an essential topic. In fact we are going to introduce a new kind of non-harmonic tones that will allow to change the harmonic result of our pieces:

The suspension

  • Why are they called ‘suspensions’?
  • How can we use them?
  • Which are the main features of these notes?
  • And, most of all, starting from a single note, how can we obtain many different musical tools?

Today we will answer all these questions and start using this new kind of notes.

Have a good lesson!
