Effortless Voice Leading | Unlocking Chord Position Magic

Voice leading can be confusing, especially if you're starting out as a composer. That's why we encourage you to start with the various positions of your chord and simply move them around.

We understand that voice-leading can be challenging and frustrating for many composers. Let's end this confusion and frustration today with this video, and we're going to clarify the process of voice-leading and make it easier for you to understand.

One effective approach to voice-leading is to use the various positions of the chords and where to place them vertically over a new root tone. You'll be able to create smooth transitions and progressions with ease. We'll explain the process in the video and show you exactly how it works.

Remember, as with almost every thing, it's all about practice and experimentation. Don't be discouraged if it takes some time to fully grasp voice-leading. With dedication and a willingness to learn, you'll improve your skills and create music that you can be proud of.

Interval Theory even suggests other forms of voice-leading ANY vertical structure (even clusters) through any sequence of roots. We'll get to this in another video.

Best always,




coming soon ...
