TMT5: What is Contrast in Music?

Hi guys, Welcome to Episode 5. So far, the podcast is going well. People seem to really like it and are grateful for the support material. As I said last week, this podcast is about Contrast. My students seem to struggle a little with the differences between contrast, unity and variety. So I thought I would talk a little about contrast. In the PDF this week I have placed an explanation, a sample question response, some links to pieces of music that use contrast, sample score and then a list of the concepts with some things that might contain contrasting elements. I do hope you find it helpful. If you do, please leave a comment, follow the podcast (currently available in the US iTunes), subscribe to the YouTube channel or like me on Facebook and leave a review.

Klerrisa Custom Music creates innovative resources that engage my students

Kym Reithmuller

I have used Klerrisa’s resources for many years and have always found them to be highly beneficial as they work! You can open them up and start teaching knowing that they have been thoroughly prepared and tested in the classroom. Students respond well to them as they experience success and fun whilst learning. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I highly recommend the resource material on the Klerrisa Custom Music website. Both Kerri and Lisa are excellent educationalists, presenters and musically talented professionals.
