Melody Composition Rules
by noom Leaving Cert Music — 21/12/16 4

Does anyone have good notes on or a list of rules for melody writing in the Leaving? My teacher hasn't given us a list and I keep making basic errors because I leave out something important. I know it's a big ask but I'd appreciate some help on this. Thanks

There are so many rules for melody writing! Is there specific problems you can't handle or will I list out the rules?

Bar 14 can be chord 2. Usually preferable
