New episode alert! A lot of thought and work over the last few weeks has gone into writing, planning, filming and editing this video. If you are interested in learning about what a melody is, or want to refresh your understanding I recommend checking it out. (Hint: this video will take you beyond the dictionary definition)
Chrome Music Lab is a FREE website that allows you to write music and easily save and share your creations. It is available to ANYONE with a web browser. No fancy apps or things to download. Because of its accessibility and ability to understand and explore fundamental musical concepts I have decided to focus my energy to develop a comprehensive tutorial series.
What is a melody? This video will compare and contrast important musical concepts, bringing the definition of melody into focus. It will also give a practical understanding the basic elements that make up a melody, as well as how to write a melody over a chord progression. Whether you are a musician or not, this video will give you a new appreciation for what a melody is, and it is my hope that it not only teaches you something new, but inspires you to create something new.
