Berklee Today Article
Monday, August 25, 2014
An excerpt from Chapter 7 of Songwriting Strategies, “Melody/Harmony Connections,” will be featured in the “Woodshed” column of the Fall 2014 issue of Berklee Today, a forum for music and musicians published by Berklee College of Music that goes out to 53,000 readers worldwide. The article, “Composing Independent Melodies,” includes some of the “contrapuntal” ways of understanding interactions of vocal melody and chords in songs outlined in the book. Thanks to Berklee Today editor Mark Small, for his keen eye in pulling out a small slice that conveys some central ideas in the book, suitable for Berklee Today’s musically informed readership. The issue is due out the first week of October.
