Early Keyboard Class 2 (EMUS1662)


In this unit of study students will develop musical ideas and basic technical skills to play classical repertoire on the fortepiano in a chosen program of study. Historical and stylistic awareness through research, discussion, and application will be a strong and on-going focus and students will also develop strategies in practice to be self-correcting. Students will also study and gain experience of improvisation and cadenza writing.
