APM3001 Piano Improvisation [1].

Private instruction in piano allows the student to improvise on the piano in the styles of choice. Related scales and chord progressions are drilled; genre pieces are played and improvised to develop the student's ability to build upon old and new pieces, bringing them fresh life and substance. Some previous experience with piano and/or music theory is highly recommended.

Prerequisite: Permission of the instructor. Repeatable for up to 6 credits.
