- Scales: major and minor, one octave, hands separately.
- Triads on all scale degrees in major and minor keys: one octave, hands separately.
- Triads and inversions: one octave, solid and broken, hands separately.
- Five types of seventh chords (MM, Mm, mm, half diminished, fully diminished); formation in root position.
- Chord progressions in keyboard or four-part style as follows:
- I-IV-V7-VI I-II-V-I,
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:
40% of total mark will be allotted by instructor based on weekly progress
20% of total mark will be allotted by instructor based on regular quizzes
15% of total mark will be based on an in-class mid-term test
25% of total mark will be based on an in-class final exam
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:
- 4 unexcused absences: minus 10%
- 8 unexcused absences: minus 15%
students who miss 30% or more of scheduled class time will receive a final grade of UN (unofficial withdrawal)
The successful student will be able to demonstrate the fundamentals of keyboard sight reading, accompaniment, transposition, improvisation, keyboard harmony, technique and piano 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: Frackenphol, Arthur. Harmonization at the Piano, 6th Edition Wm. C. Brown Publishers, 1991
