Music is an artistic expression, which, like any language, has rules that are vital to understand and compose music. When you want to learn in a formal way the techniques that accompany a good instrumental interpretation, it is essential to learn the Musical Language.
Musical language helps us to understand music, to read and interpret it, to write and create it, but above all, musical language helps us to transmit it faithfully through time and share it with everyone, expressing itself through the pentagram.
The melody, the rhythm… key aspects
In musical language there is a melody, a rhythm and a pulse, which together create a musical composition or song.
The set of sounds that form a recognizable phrase for the listener is the melody, which is built with a certain sound organization or scale. It is part of every musical system, even the simplest, and is related, in its origin, to man’s own language.
The more you understand about what’s behind all those notes, or what makes a good melodic line, what the rules of harmony are, etc., the more confidently and securely you can play a piece.
We study the signs and terms with which music is represented visually, as a language with which a score of any musical style or origin can be interpreted.
This language allows composers to write down their musical ideas and feelings in the form of music. In addition, you can learn about the evolution of music and society through the musical notation of the scores.
The alphabet of music
Musical language is like the alphabet of music, everybody knows the notes Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, Sol, La and Si, and surely some figures such as half note, quarter note or eighth note will ring a bell. It is basic in the learning of the students since it is one of the main starting points for learning music.
