How to Write Music

In this week’s video, we go over some general rules for writing music notation:

There are some more specific rules that I ended up not using in the video, but I wanted to share them here. If you are using a music notation software like Finale or Sibelius ALL of these rules are already programmed into the software and update automatically as you write the music (well, as best as it can. Sometimes beams on note groupings can get a little weird). If you have any questions, leave them the comments below. Thanks for watching/reading. Look for another music theory video soon!
