How to Write a Melody Like Debussy

melody tips Apr 13, 2023

Today, we're taking the immensely popular melody for Claire de Lune by Debussy and learning how to write our own melody out of it. Just like last week, we're stealing a melody, but this time, from the impressionist master, Claude Debussy.

Here's what you learn in this video:

  • Watch me pick out objects to create a brand new melody
  • How just 2 or 3 objects can be the genesis of an original melody
  • I show you how to sufficiently differentiate yourself from your inspiration, while retaining its classic characteristics.

I encourage you to do the same thing I'm doing here. It allows you to work with musical material without having to come up with it, and innovate on music that is genuinely inspiring to you.

Thanks so much for being here and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
