Music consists of three elements - melody, harmony, and rhythm. This book deals with the creation of melodies derived from various materials. If put into practice, it will give you an endless wealth of concepts. You should never run out of new and interesting ideas. It starts off very simply and then builds so that you can grow musically. No matter what your level, you'll find new ideas developing as you learn each section. The approach will be the same as learning a new language. You'll start by writing short, direct, clear ideas called "phrases," which are sections of the melody, similar to a clause or sentence in language. You'll then join and expand these phrases into complete songs. The techniques and ideas described in this book are universal to all styles of music - popular, jazz, rock, country, classical, etc. No matter what your preference, this is the book that will finally "show you how."
