Piano Keyboard: Improve Your Ability to Play and Improvise


Every Monday • 3:30 p.m.-5 p.m. • Shapiro AB

January 14, (21 holiday), 28 • February 4, 11, 18, 25 • March 4, 11, 18, 25 • April (1 holiday), 8

Prerequisite : Ability to read some music

If you’ve taken music lessons in the past and want to play keyboard, this may be the course for you. Review what you know and improve on your skills. We will continue to work on melody (hum or read lines, spaces and scales), add harmony (review chord theory and practice progressions) and improve rhythm (counting waltz, two-step and polka). This method is applicable to sing-along tunes, familiar standards, country and early rock ʼn’ roll—maybe even some jazz and blues. Please bring your own keyboard (earphones would be a plus, too).
