Ogopogo is a mysterious, aquatic monster said to live in a lake in British Columbia. Though that in itself may inspire a student's imagination, the piece, like its title, is also a musical palindrome. Composer Grant Michel has written both the main melody and the main counter-melody as musical palindromes and has hidden other palindromic ideas throughout the piece for students to find. This allows an already intriguing piece to become a wonderfully deep and engaging teaching tool for beginning students.
