Vocal Music Theory
Theory with Your Voice
your voice as a musical instrument is just as challenging as playing
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.
