Price: $39.95

Learn how melodies become musical compositions.

Composer Allen Toussaint begins at the piano with just a simple melody. He leads your students in an exploration of musical contour and how repetition, variation and contrast are used in creating melodies. His melody is the used as the basis of a song we see completed in a recording studio.

Classroom activities help your students "draw" melodies, "act out" musical contours, and "build" songs as they create their own musical composition.
