As you become more proficient with part writing, alternative principles can be used in various situations. Alternative principles of voice leading enhance writing that is already correct or make awkward voice leading more smooth, flowing, and melodic.

In this lesson you will learn to use alternative principles of triadic voice leading.

At the end of this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Voice lead repeated triads using change of position and reposition
  • Voice lead triads with root movement by a fifth
  • Voice lead triads in first inversion
  • Voice lead triads at cadences
