Master Class 4: Keyboard

Course Code: MAS 2005

Academic Year: 2020-2021

This course is a continuation of topics covered in Master Class 3, dealing with intermediate to advanced concepts of common interest to specific instrument types (percussion, keyboard, guitar, bass, brass, woodwind and vocal). Concepts provided in this course allow students to improve as performers on their major instrument. The principles of technique, time, tone, style, phrasing, practice routine, stress management, instrument doubling, organization, ensemble and solo performance are reinforced and expanded. Emphasis on in-class performance with feedback serves to reinforce these principles and offers a unique opportunity for musicians of the same instrument to learn from each other in a group environment.
