In this assignment, we will try to harmonize 9 simple melody. Harmonization happens when chords are
writen below the meledy 96 so accompaniment, which colors the melody.
a) Take 9 simple meledy like this one below.
b) We can now write chords below the melody. I will just use the triads from C major since the melody is
also in C major. Suddenly, we get thisl Notice that all the notes in the melody are also in the chords.
c) We can, then, change some of the chords 5 their inversions. We can also change the "voicing" (arrange
the notes of the chords differendy) of the chords to scheive 9 smoother sound, while maintaining the same
melody. Note that used the V7-I (G7-C) cadence in C major towards the end.
d) We can take it one step further to reharmonize the same melody with different chords Even though, the
melody is from C major, we can use chords that are not found in the C major scale. This will add color to
the melody and schieve 9 totally different sound. I am thinking the melody 98 part of the chord built in
* won't discuss how to de it here for the sake of this class, instead will leave it open to your interpretation,
there are infinite ways of harmonizing 9 meledy.
a-2) Take a simple meledy like this one belose. Tell me what key it is in.
b-3) this meludy using TOUL position Lriads and dominant 7th chord found in the key.
The notes in the melody chould be in the chord.
Use V7-I cadence en the half note E to the whole nere F at the cnd. Label your chords.
<-1) Change the voicing of some of the chords, use inversions occasionally. Lable your chords. Include
shorthand for inversions.
3) Reluanunize Lite meludly by exploring chords culside of the key. Then, play il on a pianto,
You don't need to include chord symbols for this onc. Do you like your reharmenization? Anv questions
nr discoveries? (This part is not requiredl)
