TMT8: How to ID Core Material in Scores

Well this week is designed to help any student who is looking at a score for the first time and isn’t really sure how to analyse it. I always start with the Core Material. Identifying the core material will help you to see what the initial ideas are and how they are developed or manipulated. This week, I use “Confutatis” from Mozart’s Requiem as a sample. I would like to thank Geru’s Music Library for taking the time to create the scrolling score with the excerpts from the film “Amadeus”. It is so good for the kids to be able to focus on this particular sequence. It is such a good analytical sequence.

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.
