Career Development, Promotion and Programming
Most musicians depart university programs with a technical proficiency on their chosen instrument allowing them to competently navigate the artistic side of their career, but careers often come to a halt when musicians find themselves unequipped to navigate the business aspects of their professional lives. Get the gig: learn modern strategies of marketing, effective self-promotion and online presence.
Module 3 (3 credits)
Piano Recording, Mixing and Videography
In this age of technology, it's not enough to just play. Master how to mic, record, mix and edit your audio and video footage. Students will also acquire the skills to effectively record, edit and deliver asynchronous and synchronous performances for evaluation of their individual one-on-one private piano lessons.
Module 4 (3 credits)
Theory of Repertoire Analysis & Performance Practice
A thorough understanding of the composer’s intentions requires a body of harmonic and contrapuntal knowledge that allows the performer to evaluate and analyze the composition in a fashion that illuminates the colors and shading inherent in the composer’s vision of the performance. Through analysis and exploration, the student will determine where the emphasis must be placed for chordal balance and linear distinction of inner lines.
Module 5 (9 credits)
Final Project: Solo Recital Performance
Pianists will perform a recital, programmed in consultation with our faculty, that will be fully produced, edited, and delivered to the world, not just a small audience in a piano hall. All Graduate performances will be showcased by The Piano Conservatory's online platforms.
Optional Elective (3 credits)
Comping and Cross-Style Versatility
An optional elective is provided for students to study the art of comping, cross-style versatility, and fundamental improvisational techniques. This module's objective is to provide students with a basic facility to accompany, not only classically trained singers and instrumentalists, but those singers and instrumentalists that have been reared in non-classical styles such as country, pop, jazz, rock, latin, etc.
