ANALYSIS FROM A KEYBOARD PERSPECTIVE
2017/2018, Semester 2
Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music (Yong Siew Toh Conservatory Of Music)
Modular Credits: 2
This elective offers an in-depth analysis of selected piano repertoire from various periods and styles. Students will study elements of music such as form, harmony and texture as part of a process of internalizing and interpreting works for the piano.
This is an elective open to Conservatory piano students and all NUS students. Students are required to be fluent in harmony (functional harmony and chromatic harmony) as the class offers an application of (rather than an introduction to) harmony. As such, NUS students would be advised to have taken either MUA 3224 or MUA 1201. For those seeking direct entry MEP study at Junior College would offer sufficient background as well.
