    Melody Composition Rules noom

    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?
