Adding chords to a melody from music in dreams is not as daunting a task as it may seem. As a beginner, you can easily learn the basics of harmonizing a melody. Here are a few tips to get you started.

     1.     Familiarize yourself with the key of the melody. Knowing the key of the melody is important in order to know which chords to use.  The key of a melody is determined by the tonic note, or the root note of the melody. This can be determined by looking at the pattern of notes common in the melody, and then comparing them to the notes of a particular scale. Additionally, the key of a melody can be determined by analyzing the melody of its tonality.

By making use of the circle of fifths, you can construct a chord progression for your melody by linking the various chords that are associated with each other by fifths.  Chords are just groups of notes that are played together. A chord progression is an arrangement of chords that is played in a specific order which I usually based it on the circle of fifths — there are both free and paid apps that you can download for the Circle of Fifths.  This is important because chord progressions form the backbone for a melody.  Once you know the key of the melody, you can choose the chords that fit the melody using the circle of fifths.
