Melody and pitch

Melody is the tune. It’s the part of the music that you often find yourself singing along with.

Pitch is how high or low a note sounds. A melody is made up of high and low pitched notes played one after the other. Catchy melodies often repeat the same series of notes over and over.

Is there a melody or tune that you like to sing? Often, if it is a catchy tune the music stays in your head.

This is one of my favourite tunes. I like the way the pitch jumps from low to high when you sing ‘some-where’

Why don’t you try learning this song?

What instrument is playing the accompaniment?

All the best,

Mrs Campbell
