piano forte & grand.jpg


This class will explore composers of piano music, discussing main style traits, influences, performance practices, and repertoire. Participants will receive sheet music of excerpts for the composer(s) as well as some recommended listening. Participants will have the opportunity to play (on electronic keyboards) these excerpts in class as part of exploring the performance practices and possibilities associated with the composer.

This year, we will focus on Stephen Chatman, retired Professor of Composition from The University of British Columbia and one of Canada's most prominent composers, he is recognized internationally as a composer of choral, orchestral, and piano music. Many of his piano pieces are included in the syllabus of Canada’s Royal Conservatory of Music.
