Piano- Advanced

Instructor:
Michaela deBrugge

Course Description:
Advanced piano builds upon the music and keyboard knowledge developed in Beginning Piano by exposing the student to more challenging repertoire, expanding sight-reading ability, and more difficult group exercises.

Objectives:
This class is an expansion on basic piano techniques introduced in Beginning Piano. Students will learn to read more difficult music and interpret the music on the piano keyboard. The class will cover proper technique, music rudiments, as well as musicianship. Rudiments include, but are not limited to: scales, chords, fingering, phrasing, dynamics, memorisation, and performance. By the end of the year students can expect to be able to play piano pieces with 2 hands, using some piano accompaniment figures. Culminating project will be a piano recital
