Piano instructors are often unaware of effective ways to introduce their students to dissonance. This article will delve into strategies and repertoire that teachers can utilize for introducing accessible dissonance to elementary level piano students. In repertoire examples discussed, special emphasis is placed on musical and compositional elements of dissonance, and what that dissonance contributes to each piece. By giving a sampling of repertoire available, the article will provide a practical starting place for where to begin.
