How Beethoven Writes a Melody with Ternary Form

melody tips May 15, 2023

Today, we're breaking out Ode to Joy's full phrase to see the form Beethoven uses lying underneath. This can be super powerful – not just as a neat formula to try and follow, but also as a way to listen for these forms in other types of music.  

Welcome to DAY 11 of May Melody Madness celebrating my new course, the Melody Mastery Mini Course ►►  

Here's why you don't want to miss this: 

  • Form allows us to further catalog musical phenomena into greater organizations
  • Which then aids us in recall and internalizing a musical idea  
  • Allowing us to more accurately perceive out inner ear!  

Form is really cool but often gets a bad rap. Let me know your thoughts in a comment below!  

Thanks and DFTBA
