Quick Win #39

Building Blocks for Composition 2

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

  • you might want to use line movement in one or two of your voices
  • scale changes are great with those patterns (see Lessons 4-6 from the Composition Course)
  • you can also tweak and edit your bass line by adding DPTs or displacing the notes (later)


Letting the bass line move against the treble parts will create tension and release (or instability and stability). Become aware of that 'energy' and use it purposely.
