## Section10.4Appoggiatura

The appoggiatura is approached by leap and left by step. It is usually accented (on the beat), which makes it a particularly expressive non–chord tone.

The example above also has an anticipation, which is discussed in a later section in this chapter.

Notice that both the appoggiaturas in the following example resolve up. Both the leap to and step away from any appoggiatura can be from any direction.

In the next section we discuss the escape tone.
