Music Composer

Experiment at making your own simple beat and melody.

Song Maker
(you will need to use google chrome for it to work).

The Bottom 2 rows are for you to make a beat – click the drum symbol at the bottom (3rd from the right) to change the drum sound.

You could use electronic drums, drum kit, Congas or Blocks.

The other rows are for you to create melodies (tunes).

Next to the drum button is another one which chooses your melody instrument – it could be Marimba, Strings, Woodwind or Synth. 

If you have a tune in your head, you can use the mic function to sing into it and it’ll highlight the note you need to click.

The play button allows you to listen back to it, and the tempo slider changes the speed.
