Experiencing Piano is a community project aimed toward elementary school children who have had little to no previous experience in piano. During their time in the program, students will improve musicality by studying note-reading, rhythm reading, and technical development for the piano while thinking creatively about the music they are making. Music theory, music history, and ensemble playing will be taught in an age-specific format. Short weekly homework assignments will be given to track students’ progress. Short biweekly performances will be held to demonstrate progress as well as to accustom the students to playing in front of their peers, building confidence as they gain pride in their accomplishments.
Students will be taught by Providence College music majors Sarah Gothers, Mary McDermott and Stephanie Joseph.
Program Director: Dr. Sang Woo Kang, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Music
