lessons assigned and arranged
This course is designed to assist you in developing greater ability and skill in using the piano in your own area or major. Assignments may involve score reading and/or sight reading and/or a limited study of piano literature. The amount of work being asked of you reflects the amount of diligence and preparation that you bring to each lesson. Your progress will depend on your attitude and the attention that you give to ideas presented in the lesson during your practice time outside of your lesson.
Practice outside of lessons is expected
