Goals & outcomes: To be able to play the piano with better technique, more musicality and more confidence. Both solo and ensemble literature throughout the instrument’s history will be used to demonstrate changes in technical, interpretive and performance practices, and attention will be given to specific exercises for each new piece of music to ensure technique and reading skills continue to be improved. Improvisation skills will also be developed.
