This is a delightful lesson that focuses on the beginning of melodic notation. The best way to introduce melodic notation to young students is through the concept of contour melodies. All music moves in some direction, whether it is up, down, stays the same, or skips. That is what makes melodic structure. This lesson focuses on three contour pictures: two sounds that stay the same, three sounds that move down each time and four sounds that move up, down, up. These contour pictures are borrowed from the folk song “I Bought Me a Cat.” During this lesson, students with no keyboard skills begin to play the keyboard as soon as they understand the concept of contour shape. This is a great way to get the students playing at a very early stage of their keyboard studies.
