Musical Notes are important collectibles in Harvest Moon: Magical Melody.
Collecting notes will become one of the main tasks to advance the game's plot. In the game's introduction, the Harvest Goddess turns to stone, disappointed that humans have forgotten to appreciate life- and in turn, have also lost faith in her. To revive her, the player is tasked with collecting 50 musical notes (out of 100 possible notes) earned by completing certain tasks throughout gameplay.
- 5 Notes: Marimba
- 10 Notes: Timpani
- 15 Notes: Harp
- 20 Notes: Piano
- 25 Notes: Violin
- 30 Notes: Cello
- 35 Notes: Flute
- 40 Notes: Acoustic Guitar
- 45 Notes: Trumpet
- 50 Notes: Restores the Harvest Goddess
Every time player collects 5 notes, he or she can head to the Goddess' Spring to create an instrument to be part of the orchestra that will play the song to revive the Harvest Goddess.
