Adult Piano History and Literature


This class brings piano students together to learn about the piano’s history, literature, and performance traditions. A central aim of this class is to deepen a student’s love of music—the piano and its repertoire in particular. Students develop critical listening skills, knowledge of repertoire, and the ability to communicate about music. Piano faculty lead discussions about in-class and at-home listening assignments and make connections between the piano’s repertoire, society, and other art forms. Special projects encourage individual exploration and discovery that lead students to find their own “favorite” aspects of the piano’s repertoire.
