The instruction will be by lecture, demonstration, and supervised practice.
The grade will be calculated on the basis of progress made in the various aspects of the course as follows:
|Regularly scheduled quizzes (minimum of 4)||20%|
*Frequent, short evaluations are designed to give feedback on newly learned material and skills, and will include demonstrations of tasks as outlined in the course content.
As this is a skill-oriented course, regular attendance is required in order to develop fluent keyboard skills. Therefore, 100% attendance is desired. The failure to attend regularly will result in reduction of a final grade as shown below:
At the end of the course, the successful student will be able to demonstrate a knowledge of, and skills in, the fundamentals of keyboard sight reading, transposition, technique, phrasing and articulation, and repertoire.
A list of recommended textbooks and materials is provided on the Instructor’s Course Outline, which is available to students at the beginning of each semester. Example: current edition, Mach, Elyse. "Contemporary Class Piano" Oxford UP, New York.
Course Guidelines for previous years are viewable by selecting the version desired. If you took this course and do not see a listing for the starting semester / year of the course, consider the previous version as the applicable version.
