A Lesson on Melody
What is melody? Melody is the shape direction and pitch of the music; the tune of the song.
 
 
Melody is a logical succession of musical pitches arranged in a rhythmic pattern. Animportant part of melody is rhythm. The notes vary in pitch and duration. Form also appliesto melody. Melodies include repetition as well as contrast. Pitch characteristics of melodiesinclude:
 
Direction - up, down, stay the same
 
Range - wide or narrow spectrum of notes ranging from low to high
 
Position - Maybe use notes of high pitches or transposed to low pitches, but as long as theintervals between notes is consistent, the melody can be placed with the total pitchcontinuum.
 
Intervals - The distance between the pitches of the melody may be steps from one note toan adjacent note, or skips where pitches leap from one to another skipping a tone ortones.
