This is a PPT on how to write a good melody. There are two examples; my heart will go on from Titanic and Mozat's symphony no 40 1st movement theme. Melodies have an APEX and these are shown in the 2 examples. There are two videos playing these two melodies on each slide respectively so students can hear what they see on the PPT.
This lesson is good for students studying composing (year 10/11). You can then provide worksheets for follow-up work or HW as required.
