Play (help·info)

In music, counterpoint is the relationship between voices that are harmonically interdependent (polyphony) yet independent in rhythm and contour.[1] It has been most commonly identified in the European classical tradition, strongly developing during the Renaissance and in much of the common practice period, especially in the Baroque. The term originates from the Latin punctus contra punctum meaning "point against point".

When I found out that there isn't anything about counterpoint on youtube, I thought it would have been nice to upload an INTRODUCTION TO THE ART OF COUNTERPOINT. It wasn't prepared, so it's a bit slow and there are a few mistakes here and there, but if you are interested in approaching counterpoint these videos will help you a lot. Unfortunately in some of the videos I had problems recording my computer screen, so the audio is a bit late. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the lessons!

Fundamental Principles of Counterpoint Study

Therefore the first principle will always be this: can you sing your melody? If you cannot, try to make it easier to sing. Here are some ways to accomplish that:

1. Make the melodic motion mostly stepwise, with some small leaps (a leap being any interval larger than a whole step).

2. Keep the melody within a limited range, generally within a single octave or perhaps an octave and a half at the most.

Counterpoint Melody

A couple semesters back, I was bored and looking at the notes for my SO's counterpoint class, and decided to try to try my hand at a counterpoint...

First Species Counterpoint

The line of counterpoint begins on a P5, P8, or P12 if it is above the cantus firmus (example 2a), and on a P1 or P8 if it is below the cantus firmus (example 2b).

The lower counterpoint cannot begin a P5 below the cantus firmus (while the upper counterpoint can), because of the modal or tonal confusion that would result. The P5's root has an irresistible tendency to imply a particular mode or key; thus, its use in the lower counterpoint at the beginning of the exercise would suggest that the final or tonic were, in fact, a P5 lower than it should be.
