I don’t know anything about piano, will I have to take it in college?
I can mess around a little on piano, will that be okay for college?
I’ve been taking lessons since I was 5, do I still have to take beginner piano in college?
Why do I have to study piano in college if I’m going to be in instrumental music ed?
As a collegiate faculty member in piano whose courseload includes coordinating the entire Class Piano program, I face questions like these every year from high school prospective applicants (and their parents) who are interested in auditioning for college as a music major. I also face questions like these from high school ensemble directors and private instructors who are trying to ensure their students get into college and possibly have a shot at scholarships and/or advanced placement. This webinar seeks to address all these questions and provide a valuable tool for making sure prospective music majors are fully prepared for collegiate music study. I will be providing an overview of the basic applied skills prospective music majors will learn on the piano, regardless of their intended field of study, and regardless of their main instrument.
Even if you have no formal study or lesson experience on the piano, there is still plenty of valuable information and preparation a prospective major can do in order to be ready for piano study at the collegiate level! This webinar aims to be valuable resource for all questions regarding college readiness and the piano.
This webinar is meant for any music students considering studying music at the college level, regardless of major (Performance, Music Ed, Composition, BA, Jazz Studies, etc.) or main instrument. I am also looking to reach all high-school music instructors (and parents/guardians) who have students planning on studying music in college.
