NEW- SUMMER PIANO ENRICHMENT COURSE- Overview of Keyboard Composers and Literature

The Great Music & Musicians series provides a foundation for understanding the major cultural periods, musical styles, and development of music through the ages. Each unit will include an overview of major keyboard composers and literature, as well as information about the development of the piano and related cultural trends. As we study the great composers of the past, we will listen to examples, and students who are able to will be encouraged to perform. This class would be an excellent enrichment for those currently taking piano lessons, but it is also suitable for those who have no prior music experience. Instructor: Vicky Ostwald
