Our First Tune

Time to change from noodling around with our three notes to making a tune out of them. This is a fairly well known tune called Au Clair de la Lune, also known as Jesus' Hands Are Kind Hands, or Silver Moonlight. Note that at the end of the line of music or the line of notes there are a couple of dots. This is a symbol in music which means "play the section again", so when you reach the end of the line, go back and repeat it once.
