Did i break any rules in this score i produced? also: when accenting a passing tone do the notes have to be chord tones?
Your notation should match the time signature (ex. your first bar is divided into "three" if read by a musician but should be four so 2 eights, 2 eights (tied), eighth rest, eighth, and 2 eights). Also, avoid parallel fifths as seen in the last two bars, you'll probably notice they don't sound pleasant. Are the inversions intentional?
I mean, if we're talking some kind of scrict "rules", given the kinda vanilla rhythm and melody. I would say playing a 2nd inversion D5 diad on the first measures downbeat, when you are in the key of A Major is kinda peculiar. I mean the E following would be on an upbeat.
not really a big deal. And there's artistic merit in the decision, so long as it follows through with the pieces respective motif. But Im just nitpicking one part of the melody.
and if I understand your question, I believe you are asking if a sforzando, for instance, can be placed on a note outside the beats respective overlaying chord.
if that's the case, then yes you can. Just be careful and have a plan to follow it up.
hope that's what you meant.
Both of you are right about playing and writing what sounds good, but just to verify. The notation isn't for the composer. The "rules" are just there to make it easier for a performer to read, or to act as a placeholder for a complex idea built around ornamentation.
nobody is trying to be a music police.
Ex: would you write a formal letter or essay in hastily written cursive or "street lingo"
No, you would present yourself like some kind of uneducated nigger and make it difficult for the reader.
Parallel fifth m. 2 last 8th note going into the downbeat of m. 3
c# - g# --> b - f#
you should learn how to beam properly as already mentioned by another anon in the thread.
I'm assuming the f# in the second to last bar is a sus?
this is what i meant
the notes circled in red are the chord tones for the passing tone which are e and g
i was wondering if the last note circled in red can be a non chord tone

theres a rule when writing music called "the invisible bar line" where you must make beat 1 and 3 clearly notated. So instead of writing the rhythm you did in bars 1 2 and 3, you should tie an eighth note on the and of 2 to an eighth note on beat 3, it makes it a lot easier to read and if you go look at any professional score, they all do this.

Applying relativism to music comes either from an ideological feeling that all should be equal, a deeply sickening idea that any form of artistic production is good within itself and that there is no standard to judge art, or from the realization that judging music comes to a dead-end; that it may not be objectively judged, and thus that such a debate, that is, comparing two different levels of art or artists, would be an impossible, superfluous one, given the fact that one could always retreat in his subjective appreciation of the given artist you are criticizing.
Of course, any discussion about music implies some kind of discussion ethics, if I may use the term: both speakers accept, upon entering a discussion, a certain set of rules, if this term could be applied --- this set of rules implies that the discussion will be rational.
If such a discussion were to happen, one could easily point out that Mozart's musical form is more complicated than that of, say, all of popular music. Two rational persons will have to agree on this. Someone disagreeing is not considered rational anymore, or is simply too uneducated to sustain the discussion. Thus the discussion ends. But if both agree, then we may start comparing every single aspect of Mozart's music to that of popular music, coming to the conclusion that everything about Mozart is more complex. Yet -- complexity does not mean the music is better, it only means it is better within this given aspect. As the discussion goes on, the person defending Art music will be able to quote and use the whole canon, hereby proving the artistic - not emotional or anything like that - superiority of Art music. In an objective way.
Only someone afraid of participating in such a debate would indulge in using relativistic arguments or refusing to discuss, on grounds of subjectivity.
i only figured having 4 beats per measure is the only thing i needed to worry about, but it seems i have to complete the beam on my eight notes. would beaming 2 eight notes instead of 4 be legal?
