Title: 50 Ways to Make a Melody

  • Why do some melodies stand the test of time?

  • How does one begin writing a melody?

  • How can a music teacher guide budding composers to write a good melody?

  • While some tunes like “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” include large intervals, Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” is mostly made of steps. Why do both of these melodies have such massive appeal?

These are questions we’ll answer at our next 88 Creative Keys webinar along with many more. In fact, we--Bradley and Leila--have lined up 50 ways to make a melody!

I loved your webinar!!! That was really good and with lots of great information and there was so much more than I expected to get from the usual webinar. I will be using what I learned in my studio from now on. This was the first time I’ve ever signed up for one of your webinars but after viewing this I will definintely be signing up for any webinars you have available.

Thank you. I have just watched the replay of your webinar and I really enjoyed it.
They were simple ideas that were not OVERWHELMING or COMPLICATED and yet really beneficial.
