About This Class

b7447457

I am writing this course hoping to expose the newly-excited, first-time student to a musical world far, far larger than that taught in traditional courses, unbound by the rigors of analytic note-learning and theory notions memorization structured in an organic, easy to follow set of lessons.

This course uses pieces composed by Bela Bartok in Vol. I of his wonderful collection entitled "Mikrokosmos", a set of six volumes, 153 delightful pieces.

You will advance as a pianist right from the start, with all concepts explained through targeted musical sessions, developing your inner ear and artistic intelligence in parallel with mastering piano dexterity.

The end of the course will bring you a level of understanding of musical pieces of not only score-reading and analysis but how to go deeper than the score and add your own piano interpretation into the musical act.
