Scratch lessons are a great way to learn the basics of programming and develop creativity. Today we will look at how to create a musical composition using this platform.

Getting to know the Scratch interface

First, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the Scratch interface and its capabilities. Go to the Scratch website and create a new project. The interface consists of programming blocks, a work area, and a toolbar.

Adding music blocks

Take a look at the possibilities of sound blocks in Scratch. Add “play note” or “play drum” blocks to your program.

  1. Click on the “Sounds” tab at the bottom of the toolbar.
  2. Select the “play drum” or “play note” block and drag it to the work area.
  3. Configure the parameters of the block by specifying the note, hour, and volume of the sound.
  4. Repeat this sequence to add additional sounds and their sequences.

Creation of musical sequence

  1. Vikorist blocks of minds and cycles to create diversity in music. For example, the “repeat” block allows you to repeat a song’s musical sequence a dozen times to create a rhythmic effect. The “if” block allows you to change the mind, such as the hour or keys, and cancel songs, for example, change the notes or tempo of the music, all in the mind.
  2. Experiment with sound effects to add punch to your music. For example, the “change tempo” block allows you to change the tempo of the music during the playing hour to create the effect of fluidity or lag.
  3. Vickoryize blocks of musical instruments to add variety to your composition. For example, the “set instrument” and “change instrument” blocks allow you to select different musical instruments to create your music.
  4. Do not forget about the possibility of changing the thickness. The “set volume” and “change volume” blocks allow you to adjust the volume of your music to create volume effects or smoothly change the volume per hour.
  5. Add clock control blocks to vary the tempo and pauses between sounds. For example, the “wait” block allows you to set a delay between sounds to create variety and dynamics in your composition.

Further exploration of various programming blocks in Scratch will allow you to create complex and unique musical compositions. Experiment with different block combinations to achieve the desired sonic effect and variety in your music.

Scratch lessons are the key to creativity and the development of musical ability

Creating a musical composition using Scratch is a laborious and creative process. With the help of Scratch lessons, you can easily learn the basics of programming and create unique music for your dream.

To deepen your knowledge of programming, you can register for courses at the GoMother IT school. These courses will give you all the necessary information and practical skills for successful development in this field.
