This second-level beginning piano course is designed for students who have had some piano experience. We'll build upon the five-finger patterns taught in Piano I, and you'll learn the keys of D, A and E and their relative minor keys. You will develop skills through the use of keyboard exercises, popular songs and appropriate-level piano literature of all genres, and will develop an understanding of melody, rhythm, harmony and timbre. Music notation, reading, scales, chords, transposition and sight-reading will be explored in more detail.
Note: Prerequisite: Piano I (MUS-40006) or equivalent experience. You will need an electronic keyboard or piano for practice at home.
