Quick Win #11

The Benefits Of SVL

Here's a quick summary of the main takeaways from this Quick Win!

  • SVL (substitute voice-leading) includes everything that is NOT proper voice-leading
  • SVL works perfectly to avoid doubling or harmonic problems with the melody or against another section


SVL gives you control and lets you decouple the physical movement from the harmonic weight! That's a critical point on the way to musical freedom!
