Music Articulation – Staccato and Legato

Music articulation is something that musicians use to make what they’re playing more interesting. Think of the difference between someone speaking in one constant tone with no breaks against someone who phrases their questions or statements. The one with phrasing is easier and better to listen to.

In this video we’re talking about staccato and legato. I give examples of what they look and sound like.
