Does anyone have good notes on or a list of rules for melody writing in the Leaving? My teacher hasn't given us a list and I keep making basic errors because I leave out something important.
I know it's a big ask but I'd appreciate some help on this.
There are so many rules for melody writing! Is there specific problems you can't handle or will I list out the rules?
Bar 5 : Variation of bar 1
Bar 6: Variation of bar 2
Bar 7 : chord 5 of your modulated key
Bar 8: Chord 1 of your modulated key
Bar 9: Chord 1 of your original key
Bar 10: a sequence of bar 9
Bar 11: Chord 1 of original key
Bar 12: chord 5 of original key
Bar 13: chord 1
Bar 14: chord 4
Bar 15: chord 5
Bar 16: chord 1
Bar 14 can be chord 2. Usually preferable
