Simple PHP Headers Syntax Question - Dreamweaver AppDev

What is the correct syntax to add a variable to a query string using the GET method of a form? I am trying to pass a dynamic variable ('$username'). Here is my code: header('Location: menu_short.php?name=$username'); I think I have to add an ECHO but I don't know the correct syntax. Any help is appreciated....

    1) The Location header requires an absolute address. See the header()
    manual for an example.

    2) If you want PHP to replace the variable $username with its value you
    have to put the entire string into double quotes.
