Nice.
Holy cow, look at that! Boop.
All right, enough artin' around.
We've got a question to answer.
Hi, Storybots.
My name is Mya.
- Hey, Mya, how're you doing? - Hi, there! I have a question for you.
How do you make music? Hmm, that's a tough one.
How do you make music? Well, do you know how to play any instruments, Mya? I play the piano.
Wow, really? Can you play the banjo? Yes.
Whoa, what about the drums? Yes.
- A glockenspiel? - A sousaphone? A B-flat triple piston, brass-plated flugelhorn? Uh N Yes.
- Whoa! - Wow! So, what do you need us for? Bing, just because Mya can play music doesn't mean she knows how it's made.
- Oh, yeah, you're right.
- I didn't think about that.
Hey, wait, I got it! I know where we can find the answer! StoryBots, prepare for transport.
Let's find out how you make music.
Outer World, here we come! Almost, mm Ahh.
Perfect.
Aah! Painting.
Ooh! Oh, Bing, this was a great idea.
Yeah, where better to learn about music than a music shop? All we have to do is play an instrument, and we'll have our answer.
Bing, I don't think it's that simple Oh, that did not sound like music, man.
Well, feast your ears on this.
Hmm.
Music's gotta come out of one of these.
Aah! Ahh Why won't these make music? I don't know, man.
This seems, like, mega difficult.
Whoa! That sounds like music! Whoa, Bing, how'd you do that? Just naturally talented, I guess.
Look! A music thingy! Whoa! Come on, guys, let's follow it and see where it goes.
- Yeah, come on, guys! - Let's do it! Hey, look! It's going down the tuba.
All right! Whoa! Whoa! I don't think we're in the tuba anymore, dudes.
Look! There's more of those music thingies.
Why are we just standing around? Come on, guys, follow me! Let's g You'll never get into Music Land ringing the bells like that.
Music Land? Is there an echo? Could you tell us how to get into Music Land, Mr.
Horn Thingy? It's easy.
Just ring the bells to climb the wall.
You mean, like this? No, no, no.
You can't make just any noise.
It needs to be a melody that gets you over the wall.
Melody, huh? What's melody? Melody is a string of pitches you can sing along with.
Pitches? What are those? Pitch is how high a sound is.
Oop! Or how low a sound is.
Aah! So, if pitch is how high or low a sound is, and melody is a string of pitches, then, to get over this high wall, maybe we need to play a melody that gets higher in pitch.
Like this.
Oh! The melody is making more of those music thingies! Those aren't "music thingies.
" They're music notes.
Well, whatever they are, they're making stairs.
Come on, guys, let's go! - There we go.
- Whoa.
Oh, hey, look! It's the castle! That's right! Just follow the path to the King of Music.
King of Music? I bet he can help us answer Mya's question.
Of course, he can.
He's a living legend.
But you better stay on the path.
You don't wanna get lost.
Thank you so much, Mr.
Horn! - Bye! - See ya! Yea Aah! Package from the Philharmonic Orchestra.
Hmm? Huh! Ooh.
Hmm? Hmm.
Aah! Instruments.
From the great, big grand piano To the tiny tin kazoo There are tons and tons of instruments Let's try and name a few There's the xylophone The slide trombone The banjo with its snappy twang The bongo drums are fun to bang The violin, the theremin The ukulele by the bay So many instruments to play The clarinet, the little coronet The tuba with its oompah sound The crashing cymbals, big and round The bagpipe too, the didgeridoo The ocarina made of clay So many instruments to play Some people like to Strum the balalaika Some like to play The ringing harpsichord Harmonica, musical saw And the gigantic alpine horn The guitar, the harp, the piccolo The double bass, the diddley bow The pan pipes and the timpani The French horn, the calliope The glockenspiel, the bells, the gong And many more not in this song What a lot of sounds, hooray So many instruments to play Oh, I can't wait to meet the King of Music.
Well, as long as we follow the path, we should be there in no ti Whoa! That's a pretty big hole, man.
How will we ever make it across? We can show you how.
Huh? - It's easy.
- Watch.
Whoa! Hey! Hey, come here! You're not getting away this time.
Ha, this is fun! Huh? Aah! Hey.
As you can see, a single pitch all by itself can only take you so far.
But in order to get that extra oomph, you need to use some harmony.
Harmony? What's that? Harmony's what you get when you combine two or more pitches.
To create a sound that's pleasing.
Like this.
- Whoa! - So cool! That sounds beautiful.
Whoa, the music notes are, like, heading to the other side.
Grab on, guys! - Huah! - Huh! - Huah! - Boop! Oh! Whoa! Aah! Thank you, Mr.
and Mrs.
Recorder! We appreciate the help! Whoa, it's, like, super breezy up here, man.
I just wish we were a little closer to the ground.
Like a lot closer to the ground.
It's OK, Bo, just look around.
It's so nice and peaceful.
Yeah, what could possibly go wrong? - Hello! - Aah! Oopsy daisy! Boop.
Whoa, that was, like, intense, man.
This place is giving me the creeps.
Well, at least we're on the ground, right? Yeah! Besides, everything should be fine, as long as we stay on the Uh, where's the path? Oh! What's that? Tap you feet to the beat.
That's rhythm.
Tap our what? Add a pause, that's because it's rhythm.
Do you happen to know how to get to the castle? When you go fast or slow, that's tempo.
Follow me, and you'll see where to go.
Short, short, long.
Short, short, long.
That's rhythm.
Uh, is this guy making sense to any of you? What is it, Boop? Boop, boop, boop.
Boop, boop, boop.
Boop, boop, boop.
Short, short, long.
Short, short, long.
That's rhythm.
Oh, uh Short, short, long.
Short, short, long.
That's rhythm.
Short, short, long.
Short, short, long.
That's rhythm.
Short, short, long.
Short, short, long.
That's rhy Guys! Look! It's the castle! What are we waiting for? Let's go! - Whoo-hoo! - Thank you! Thank you, Mr.
Drum! I can't believe we're finally gonna meet the King of Music.
Yeah! I hope he's, like, all benevolent and stuff.
- Halt! - Huh? To see the King of Music, you must get past us first.
Only those familiar with the musical element "timbre" are allowed entry! OK! Well, uh What's timbre? Timbre is the quality of sound.
Shh, Jerry, don't tell them! Timbre is what makes one sound different from another.
Garry, quiet! Kind of like how this Has a different timbre than this.
No, you're giving everything away! We're guards! We're supposed to guard the castle! So, this has a different timbre than this? And this? And this! Ah, now look what you two have done.
Very well, just come on in.
- Thank you so, so much.
Thanks, guys! - Thanks, gang! Bye, Garry! Bye, Larry! Bye, Jerry! Bye-bye! I don't mean to brag, but I think we are pretty great guards.
You know what they say.
Three heads are better than one.
Ugh.
Nobody says that.
- Hmm? - Huh? And now, presenting Hercules! The world's strongest StoryBot.

Three.
How many rings in a circus tent? And how many holes in a bowling ball? How many corners in a triangle? Everybody knows there are three in all Three little wheels go round and round When a tricycle goes zippin' by Three little pigs have a house of bricks And three little kittens have their pie Three-minute eggs are cookin' Three strikes you're out The number three is such a thrill It makes me wanna shout Hip-hip hooray, hip-hip hooray Hip-hip hooray Three cheers for three Hip-hip hooray Three cheers for three Triceratops has three big horns Three musketeers yell "All for one!"

Mr.
King? - Hello? - Anybody home? Aah! Only those who know the elements of music may seek counsel from the king! I don't think I know the elements of music.
I don't think I do either.
Guys, we learned them on the way here, remember? There was melody.
Oh, yeah, and harmony! - And don't forget rhythm! - Oh, and timbre! And what about intensity? Uh, what about intensity? You know.
Intensity! Uh It's not ringing a bell, dude.
Really, Mike? That was your one job.
Sorry, boss! I guess if you want something done, you've got to do it yourself.
So, musically speaking, intensity is the volume of sound.
With it, things can be very soft.
Or very loud! Ooh! Now, what was that element? Intensity.
I can't hear you! Intensity! A little bit louder! Intensity! Oh, wait! That's too intense! Oh, no! Darn that Gary and his discounted electronics.
Huh? Well, it sure looks like you all know your elements of music.
I mean, look at what you've done here! Yeah, sorry about that.
I guess we just got a little carried away.
Ah, that's all right, because I know the one secret to getting these elements back in shape.
What's that, Mr.
King of Music? Organization! You see, without organization, sounds are just noise.
But when melody, harmony, rhythm, timbre and intensity are organized in a way that makes people feel things that's music.
- Oh! - That's music! In fact, music can make you feel all sorts of things.
It can make you feel happy.
Or sad.
Or anything in between.
This one makes me feel groovy, man.
This one makes me feel excited! And this one makes me feel like dancing.
Precisely.
So you see, StoryBots, you don't need to be royalty to know how to make music.
All you need are the five elements and a little bit of organization! Well, it looks like we got our answer, guys! - Whoo-hoo! - We did it! - Oh, I love it! - Thank you, Mr.
King! Thank you, King of Music! Thank you, King of Music! Whoo! Thank you, King of Music! Hey! StoryBot fun fact number 107,476,092.
Did you know that a chicken's heart beats four times as fast as a human and ten times faster than a turtle? Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, mm-hmm.

Couch potato! Packing peanuts! What the What are you StoryBots doing back here? I told you to get an answer! Not dilly-dally! We got the answer, boss.
We know how you make music.
The first thing you need to know is that all music is made up of sounds.
Yeah, but not all sounds are music.
Some are just plain noise.
For sounds to be music, they need to be organized in a way that makes people feel something.
Like happy, sad, nervous, scared.
Or maybe just makes you wanna tap your toes, man.
There are five ways people organize sounds to make music.
Melody, harmony, rhythm, timbre, and intensity.
Melody is a string of pitches you can sing along with.
And pitch is how high or low a sound is.
Harmony is when multiple pitches are played at the same time.
And rhythm is the way sounds repeat over time.
Timbre is what makes one thing sound different from another.
And intensity is how loud or soft the sounds are played.
So, when melody, harmony, rhythm, timbre, and intensity are organized in a way that make people feel something That's how you make music.
Just Just give me that tape.
Melody, harmony, rhythm Timbre, intensity That's how sound is arranged to be Music to our ears Let's start with pitch An important part of music It can be high or low Let me show you how to use it You make melody A string of pitches One after the other And harmony a group of pitches Playing altogether And then you got rhythm Rhythm The way a sound repeats It might make you tap your toes It might make you tap, tap Tap, tap, toe And timbre, what makes one sound Different from another I'll show you how that goes And at last, intensity How loud or soft a sound is played Now you know How sound is organized into music Made of melody, harmony Rhythm, timbre, intensity Gets our feelings flowing Our hummers humming Our fingers drumming, everybody Melody, harmony Rhythm, timbre, intensity That's how sound is arranged to be Music to our ears Oh, that was actually kind of groovy.
