Simple Tools for Writing Melody

In this video, I talk about two important melodic tools: ‘motive‘ and ‘repetition.’ Most melodies we know and love use these two tools in predictable patterns.  The patterns help us to write more accessible songs.  After writing ‘in’ the box of accessibility, we understand better when we can write ‘outside’ that box, too.

I hope this video helps you feel more confident as you write melody and harmony.  Happy writing!
