Prerequisite: None, no prior musical experience necessary
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 online level-one theory course. Assessment is based on performance accuracy and theoretical understanding.
