Tutorial for reading music in compound time such as 6/8 and 12/8
Includes the songs “O Holy Night” and Bring It On Home To Me”
The above video was created as a tutorial for reading music written in compound time, specifically for the song “O Holy Night” which was arranged in 6/8 time.
Recently I arranged “Bring It On Home To Me” which is in 12/8. Reading in 12/8 and 6/8 is the same theory so this tutorial video applies to reading in 12/8 time as well.
Actually, I could have arranged Bring It On Home in 6/8 time as well but there would have been twice as many bars because theoretically it’s the same, just half the size. Much like reading in 2/4 and 4/4. It reads the same just has half as many counts/notes in the bars.
