Pro­fes­sor Owl teaches his music class (full of birds) about melody and its impor­tance to the world of music. It’s all around in nature. Only birds and man can sing; man “sings” even when he speaks. We see a quick sur­vey of the stages of life, as cap­tured by songs: the Alpha­bet Song for pri­mary school, “Here Comes the Bride,” “The Old Gray Mare,” etc.

Some inspi­ra­tions for song are out­lined in song (such as love, sail­ing, trains, the West and moth­er­hood), but “we never sing about brains.” Finally, an exam­ple is shown of how a sim­ple melody can be expanded into a sym­phony: an elab­o­rate ver­sion of the sim­ple tune which opened the lesson.
