Piano History and Literature

ID : 7727   
« back to classes page

This seminar-style class brings piano students together to learn about the piano’s history, literature, and performance traditions, covering one or two composers in each session.  After a short lecture and demonstration, students will listen to select pieces and then discuss, drawing connections between the piano’s repertoire, society, and other art forms. A central aim is to deepen students’ love of music — the piano and its repertoire in particular.  Develop critical listening skills, knowledge of repertoire, and the ability to communicate about music.
