Play the ‘hooks’ from songs on a melody instrument, or find someone who can

  • On an instrument on which you can play tunes, such as a keyboard, violin, flute or recorder, sing and play me the first few notes from songs that you think I might like
  • You could use pop songs, such as:
    • ’Isn‘t she lovely’ (EFE D–C–)
    • ‘I’m still standing’ (G–F– EA)
    • ‘Every day’ (G–EDC–)
  • Try Soundabout Music Tracks: Motifs and Songs, such as:
    • ‘Slowly’ (C–E C–E)
    • ‘All join in!’ (G–A– FD)
  • Now play me the same ‘hooks’ without singing; do I still seem to recognise the songs?
  • Make recordings so I can listen lots of time
