How specific notes or passages are played or sung

Articulation in music refers to the way in which individual notes or sounds are played on an instrument, including their duration, intensity, and connection to surrounding notes. Musicians use various techniques, such as fingering, tonguing, embouchure, or breath control, to produce different types of articulations, such as staccato, legato, accent, tenuto, or hooking. Different articulations can produce vastly different timbres and musical effects.
