|Teaching Strategies/Student Activities:
Students are expected to participate actively in classroom discussions and demonstration each week.
The class meets in the piano lab and students will utilize the keyboards for a variety of exercises, including developing the skills necessary to play some homework assignments, harmonic progressions, and melodies. Special projects may be added during the semester.
At the end of the course students will be able to read basic musical language and grammar and to practice ear training skills required for sight reading musical literature.
