Vocal Music Theory
Applying Music Theory with Your Voice

vocal-group-5Using your voice as a musical instrument is just as challenging as playing one. 

It's not only that every instrument has to deal with the laws of music theory so does your voice.

So if you sing and may want to compose songs, you should know the music theory associated with rhythm, notes, key signatures, scales, harmony, and the rest.

Your Voice and Applying Music Theory 

One of the musical concerns that the classical composers dealt with first was voices. 

Back in the day of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and the others, the great performances were often of song and drama.

For Bach the choral music was incredibly significant. Mixing voices and registers was a must to be able to great breath of sound.

Using the soprano voices, with alto, tenor, and bass created great opportunities to create chords with voices. 

Bach was a master at combining the voices to create major, minor, diminished, and 7th voicings. This vocal music theory was applied constantly in his compositions.

Even today many consider Bach to be the instigator for jazz sounds by working with music theory and vocal music theory.
