CHAPTER 1

I like to sing a melody!

What is a melody?

Well, would you like to learn? Marvelous! Let's begin," says Melody.

"A melody is a 'sweet' succession of sounds!

A sweet order of sounds!

Or a sweet arrangement of sounds or musical notes.

A melody is 'sweet'! Swwwweeeet! I really like that! Tee-hee," laughs Melody.

"A melody is the part of song that you sing. The part that kinda ... well ... sticks in your mind. Do you know what I mean?" says Melody.

"Do you ever sing a song ... and then ... well, you just can't stop singing it?

That's the melody!

Melody! Isn't that a lovely word? I bet that's why I sing all the time.

My name is Melody, and I like a melody!

"Tee-hee," giggles Melody.

"Now ... it's not the harmony!Harmony is different! Harmony, you ask?" Melody says, thinking.

"Are you talking about me?" says Harmony. "Oh, hello, Harmony," says Melody. "Harmony, I would like you to meet my new friends," says Melody. "Hello, everyone, so nice to meet you," says Harmony.

"I was just about to let everyone know that the harmony is different from melody in music," Melody tells her friend. "Oh, OK! Can I help?" Harmony asks. "That would be marvelous since your name is Harmony," answers Melody. "Tee-hee," Melody giggles.

"Well, now ... Let's talk about harmony," says Melody. "It's a sound that agrees with the melody!"

Harmony adds, "You know ... when you and your friends can't decide on something, and then you have to agree on one thing?"

"Yes, just like you and me, Harmony! We agreed to teach this together," says Melody.

"That's right!" says Harmony. "We are different, yet we can work together."

"Isn't that marvelous!" says Melody.
