Course Students Objectives
Alfred’s Group Piano for Adults Book 1 second edition by E.L. Lancaster and Kenon D. Renfrow
Additional material may be supplemented by the instructor.
Beginning piano is a performance class. Students participate daily in individual and group activities. Activities are cumulative in organization, building on previously learned concepts. Therefore, attendance is crucial to personal development. Students may miss class twice without a final grade reduction. Each absence above the two allotted absences reduces the final grade five points. Nonparticipation in class equals one absence for each occurrence. Class participation includes all classroom activities – singing, rhythmic reading, working on assigned material, and performing individually and as an ensemble.
If you need course adaptations or accommodations because of a disability, if you have emergency medical information that needs sharing, or if you need special accommodations in case the building must be evacuated, please make an appointment with the professor as soon as possible.
Federal privacy law prohibits the instructor from releasing information about students to certain parties outside of the university without the signed consent of the student. Thus, in almost all cases the professor will not discuss students’ academic progress or other matters with their parents. Please do not have them call. Regardless of these important legal considerations, the professors’ general policy is to communicate with the students, not their parents, even when a student has signed a consent form. College students are adults and are expected to behave accordingly.
Academic dishonesty including plagiarism and giving or receiving unauthorized assistance is prohibited. Please review the University Honor Code. Any offense is reported.
