BEATS A beat is a main accent, rhythmic unit and time-keeper in music or poetry.

An effective beat will be steady, loud but not over-powering and simple. This is the base-line which will compliment and support your melody.

For example, "Can I Kick It" by Tribe Called Quest A Song Inhyeok Yeo covering "I Wish" by Stevie Wonder Incredibox Melody A Melody is a sequence of single notes that is musically satisfying.

An effective melody will contain a basic pattern or sequence which is then stretched/shrunk/twisted in various differentiations or secondaries. The most important element to a melody is the motive. The motive is the hook; generally only a few notes (think "Jaws") which are easy to remember and sing back in your head.

For example, "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey Effects An effect is an artificially created or enhanced sound.

An effective effect will enhance either the beat or the melody without distorting, or distracting from, either. Generally an effect will work in harmony with either the beat or melody but not both.

For example, "Come Together" by The Beatles Chorus A chorus is a line or group of lines that are repeated at intervals.

An effective chorus will be the melodic high point of the song as its emotional core. Different from the motive in that it is a vocal sequence rather than instrumental but should be repeated just as often in order to develop memorability. Can it be sung back, over and over?

For example, "Go Your Own Way" by Fleetwood Mac Voices A voice is the faculty or power of uttering sounds through the mouth by the controlled expulsion of air.

An effective voice will follow the the melody in harmony. Namely, it does not have to copy the melodic notes exactly, for example, if the melody dips down, find a higher vocal notes that harmonize with the melody. Harmony is a mix of notes which have a "pleasing" sound when heard together.

(Note: This does not mean discordant sounds are bad, those are fine but make sure there is a resolution following the discord).

For example, "Mercedes Benz" by Janis Joplin An Incredibox Exemplar
