Use this note-by-note activity for kids and learn a new tune easily. Writing tunes might seem like a difficult thing to do, but if you take it one note at a time, it can be done.
What You'll Need:
- Piano or keyboard instrument
Using a musical instrument with a wide range of notes and tones, pick a number between one and ten, and string that many notes together at random, keeping track of the pattern.
If you pick six, use six notes in the pattern. Now, using the same notes in a different order, create a new pattern. String the combinations together, and you have a tune of your own composition.
