Money, Money, Money..... Rondo Ostinato

With accolades to Mary Beth Yoder and (?) Centennial Arts Academy Gainesville GA

Money Rondo

In rondo form, a principal theme (sometimes called the "refrain") alternates with one or more contrasting themes, generally called "episodes," but also occasionally referred to as "digressions" or "couplets." Possible patterns in the Classical period include: ABA, ABACA, or ABACADA. The number of themes can vary from piece to piece, and the recurring element is sometimes embellished and/or shortened in order to provide for variation.

In music, an ostinato (derived from Italian: stubborn, compare English: 'obstinate') is a motif or phrase, that persistently repeats in the same musical voice, usually at the same pitch. The best known ostinato based piece may be Ravel's Boléro.[1]

An ostinato is always a succession of equal sounds, where each note has the same weight or stress.[citation needed] The repeating idea may be a rhythmic pattern, part of a tune, or a complete melody in itself.
