Musical patterns are lovely because they make your life as a composer so much easier. Yes, we talk about that "copy/paste" thing that you shouldn't be doing too often, or should you?
Well, if you can prevent the pattern from sounding boring, then all is good! And that's the moment where Interval Theory comes in very handy as we simply have to follow numbers, no matter the starting note!
You'll be surprised how much (interesting) music you can write just by following patterns. The musical examples in the video show exactly how to use patterns "the smart way," and we hope you'll get a ton of value out of that!
