Once you enter Melody Bay, you’ll come across a pond resembling a music sheet. You’ll also meet Toadofsky, a composer who’s looking for new compositions. He’ll also teach you each note on the music sheet. Despite that, solving these puzzles isn’t as straightforward as I’ve made it sound. Indeed, you’ll need to know how the notes go.

How to Compose the Tadpole Song: Frogfucius’ Suite #1

When you try to compose a song, the tadpoles will move up and down the music sheet. You’ll have to jump on the tadpole at the right time to get your desired note. If you miss the timing, it will return, so take your time and don’t rush. 

For the first composition, you’ll have to talk to a tadpole in the area right before Melody Pond. There will be a rock next to the water that you can stand on where he’ll appear. After you talk to Frogfucius for the first time, the tadpole will give you a song that it’s been working on called “Frogfucius’ Suite #1.
