MUS-130 - Introduction to Piano

3 credits

A beginning piano course for adult students without prior musical knowledge or skills. The course will combine both music theory and a laboratory skills program with major emphasis on the basic structure of keyboard music. Melody, chords, rhythm, form, dynamics and style will be studied by the student at the keyboard and discussed in lecture sessions. Students will be encouraged to proceed as their individual abilities permit, requiring considerable individualization of instruction as they gain technical mastery. Open to all students at the College.

Mass Transfer Block: Credits earned in this course are counted towards the MassTransfer Block Humanities and Fine Arts requirements.
