COURSE DESCRIPTION

Piano & Electronic Keyboard I
Grades 10-12
1 credit
Prerequisite: None

Students taking this course are offered keyboard classes in order to develop music proficiency and musicianship. Students perform with proper posture, hand position, fingering, rhythm, and articulation; study the elements of music as exemplified in a variety of styles; and make interpretive decisions. In this course students are largely self-directed. They work through a standard Level I piano primer and complete an on-line level-one theory course. Assessment is based on performance accuracy and theoretical understanding.
