About me

Whilst I am fascinated by the sciences and enjoy tackling problems, music is my passion. I have started various music groups at secondary school and university, and tutored friends and colleagues who have approached me in practical and academic topics alike. I would very much like to help anybody with problems: we would cover the basics first to make sure all understanding is clear. We will then progress to more complex ideas when you are totally comfortable. :)

Questions Emily has answered

Q. What are some basic ways to develop a motif in composition?

A. Broadly, there are three ways: using smaller note values in your existing motif e.g. crotchets to quavers; adding ornaments/decorations e.g. trills, mordents, grace notes or just extra notes to fill an interval - this adds character and keeps the listener interested; adding more complex rhy...

Q. What is a tritone?

A. A tritone is a specific type of interval. It can start on any note, but the interval must be an augmented fourth or diminished fifth (these are the same). For example, if the bottom note is C, the top note will be F# (C to F is a fourth, then one must augment this by a semitone to get to F#...

A. A tritone is a specific type of interval. It can start on any note, but the interval must be an augmented fourth or diminished fifth (these are the same). For example, if the bottom note is C, the top note will be F# (C to F is a fourth, then one must augment this by a semitone to get to F#). This also works if one thinks of it as a diminished fifth: C to G is a fifth, then make the interval smaller by a semitone to get to the F#. A tritone has also been called 'the Devil in music', and can be recognised in some songs, such as Leonard Bernstein's 'Maria' from "West Side Story".
