Cycle 5 Level One

In this podcast, I will show you some practical application to the Circle of 5ths, also known as Cycle 5.

You will also be introduced to "smooth voice leading", which is moving from one chord to the next while staying in the same area of the keyboard.

The idea is also that if the chords stay in the same frequency range, which is achieved by moving the top note of the chord as little as possible while going to the next chord, then more emphasis will be given to the melody.
