PACE 319 - Diversity in Piano Literature

HC CNDP
2 credits
Diversity in Piano Literature will explore works by composers of diverse cultures, ethnicities, genders, and sexual orientations. Piano pedagogy, from the earliest materials to the most advanced, is traditionally dominated by Western male composers, and without appropriate research and education, music by diverse composers will continue to be underrepresented in our literature. In this course, students will discuss, research, and analyze music by composers from diverse backgrounds, develop curriculum free from stereotypes and cultural appropriation, and build a leveling system for replacing traditional repertoire with music by underrepresented composers.
Prerequisites & Notes: For piano majors.
