Articulation in music is used to express how certain notes or passages are played or sung. To simply explain the articulation in music, this is similar to the emphasis and intonation differences we make to express emotions while speaking the same. Composers describe articulation by adding various symbols above or below the notes to express these intonation differences. Articulation is one of the only elements in which an performer can show his own interpretation difference, display the character and musical change of emotions in the periodic differences of music. Almost all the emotional changes that the audience feels in the work can be transferred with tonality, articulation and nuances. The mentioned articulations can be sited by studying the technical studies and studies written separately for each instrument. In addition, among these articulations, there are specially written ones according to the physical and tonal structure of the instruments. It may differ between the symbols used in string instruments and the symbols used in wind instruments.
