APST 241 - Introduction to Historical Keyboard Instruments for Pianists

First Semester. A team-taught, hands-on introduction to the fortepiano, harpsichord, and organ. The semester will be divided into four segments. During each of the first three segments (one per instrument) students will meet in groups of three or four, twice a week. Students will be expected to prepare excerpts from a variety of repertory. Related readings will also be assigned. For the fourth segment, each student will concentrate on one of the instruments, selecting a short work for in-class performance at the end of the semester. During this final segment, private lessons with the appropriate faculty member will replace the class meetings.
