Both Scribbler textbooks (Python-based and C++-based) discuss tone generation in Chapter 1 for beginners:
The melody of a tune is a sequences of notes, each for a specified duration.
Complication: If a melody contains two successive notes at the same pitch, the performer must separate the first from the second slightly, so the two pitches do not blend together into one.
