Mus 452 Advanced Keyboard Techniques

This course is designed to provide pianists with skills needed to function successfully in many different professional environments. Many of these skills were previously common among pianists such as transposition, harmonization, and figured bass reading but fell out of favor over time. Other advanced skills were born out of today’s professional requirements such as playing from a chord chart, using electronic instruments, and extended keyboard techniques.
