Today, when you write a melody, I'm showing you why keeping melodic contour top of mind is imperative. To put this idea to use, we'll look at Debussy's classic melody for Claire de Lune and analyze how he's using contour to make it such a successful and timeless melody.
Welcome back to May Melody Madness where I'm celebrating the release of my course, the Melody Mastery Mini Course ►► https://justwritemusic.com/melodymastery
Here's what you learn:
- What melodic contour is and how to spot it
- How it can help you create phrasal structure in your melody
- The power of intermittent subversion in your contour
This is an often overlooked component of melodies, but once you start thinking about it, you'll notice just how much more flow and logic your melodies will have.
