MUS 65 PIANO ACCOMPANYING

1.5 Units - 1 hour lecture, 1.5 hours lab
Transfers: CSU, UC
Recommended Preparation: MUS 59  
This course is designed to give students experience and technique for instrumental and vocal accompaniment. Students will perform a variety of pieces in class, receiving critique on balance, phrasing, and tempos. Students will be coached on watching and following soloists, rehearsal practices, and how to support the soloist throughout the process of performing. In the class, there will be mock experiences where students will have to adapt to soloists that skip sections, get lost, or need additional support during a concert. Emphasis will also be given to style, interpretation and techniques of accompanying and sight-reading. Students are limited to enrollment in four piano courses (MUS 54, 55, 56, 57, 62, or 65) for a maximum of 8 units. NR
