Binary Form

“AB Form” or “AABB Form”

A musical form that consists of two sections, typically labeled as "A" and "B". In performance, these sections are generally played repeatly, resulting "A-A-B-B". The "A" and "B" sections are equally important but contrast with each other, usually through modulations.

Example of Binary Form
