How to compose a musical phrase from scratch
In this video we’re going to learn how to write a melody that fits a certain (functional) Chord Progression.
To do this we use a variety of techniques, such as Chord Tones, Passing Tones and Fragmentation.
Learning about these techniques and concepts can help you in building complete musical phrases that make sense and that give your music a sense of forward momentum. It’s also great for those moments where you feel uninspired and you just need some method for creating interesting melodic ideas.
