Keyboard Skills [MUSC 129]

MUSC 129/3.0 Keyboard Skills

A fundamental keyboard skills course designed for non-keyboard majors.

NOTE    Course content will support and coordinate with the traditional diatonic harmonic material covered in MUSC 191 but will also include other styles. Successful completion of the course will require a working fluency at the keyboard in sight-reading, melodic and harmonic analysis as well as transcription. Activities will include harmonization, transposition and improvisation.

For Fall 2020 Remote Delivery

The first semester of this course will be delivered online. The weekly schedule will involve a one-hour zoom session and individual recorded assignments. Students without access to a keyboard will be able to complete assignments using a recommended keyboard App. A compulsory placement test and advising session will take place virtually during the first week of classes.

NOTE   Students require previous rudiments and piano experience to take this course.
