Justification Exercises

Justification Exercises

This will grow overtime. A series of exercises dealing with a reharm concept that I use often.

Static Octave Static Quality Justification

This is an important concept that I'll use throughout Office Hours dealing with harmonic freedom. Dive in and check out the concept! 


Melodic Justification

Ever write a great melody but then end up stuck trying to figure out how to add harmony? In this lesson I take a simple 4 bar melody and add harmony using 4 different approaches:

  1. Diatonic harmony

  2. Diatonic harmony with chord extensions

  3. Add passing chords

  4. Chromatic root movement justification

This method can help you recover from writer's block and give you concrete ways to assist you in finding the perfect harmony for your compositions!
