TMT7: What does “treatment” of melodic material really mean?

Episode 7 is out now. I can’t believe that over 100 people have downloaded my podcast. Thanks so much to all those listeners out there. I would like to give a shout out to my students who apparently are now listening…welcome. Don’t forget to head on over to the facebook page and hit like. I don’t have many facebook followers, but there are lots of cool things that go up there.

On this week’s podcast, I talk about the difference between explain and describe. I also go into what “core material” is and what core “melodic” material really means. There is a sample work, Debussy’s Voiles, and there is also a sample paragraph for you to see how description and explanation are used differently.

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.
