How to describe music1 min readReading Time: < 1 minutes
When trying to describe music, it is important to consider the tone of voice, melody, harmony, rhythm, and texture. Tone of voice can be used to convey the emotions or mood of the music. For example, a song with a sad tone of voice might be described as being "melancholy." Melody is the succession of musical notes that make up a tune. Harmony is the combination of two or more musical notes played together. Rhythm is the pattern of accents and silence in music. Texture is the way the notes are layered in a piece of music.
