    'Make a tune' is not a familiar collocation. Do you mean
    - 'make music' or 'play a tune' (=sing or play a musical instrument), or
    - 'compose music' (= write it)?

    "Made" doesn't strike me as particularly unusual, personally, although "created" would perhaps be better suited, depending on the intended meaning and context.

    Thank you for your response.
    "Wonderful tunes were made." means "Wonderful tunes were composeded."
    For example, I like their songs. The tunes were made by The Beatles.
    Is it OK to say that?


    To say the tunes were made by The Beatles could be a little confusing. Do you mean that The Beatles actually wrote, or composed, the tunes? Or that they performed the tunes? Performing a song and composing a song are very different. Hope that helps.

    'Wonderful tunes were made' sounds like something from poetry! But yes, for ordinary usage, I'd go with teddy's recommendation.
