Course Code: MAS 1018
Academic Year: 2019-2020
This course deals with topics of common interest to specific instrument types (percussion, keyboard, guitar, bass, brass, woodwind and vocal). Concepts provided in this course allow students to improve as performers on their major instrument. The principles of technique, time, tone, style, phrasing, practice routine, stress management, organization, ensemble and solo performance are reinforced and expanded. Emphasis on in-class performance with feedback serves to reinforce these principles and offers a unique opportunity for musicians of the same instrument to learn from each other in a group environment.
