MUSC 163 Beginning Piano 1

As a guitarist, this piano class granted me a new lens of playing and viewing music. I did not have any prior piano playing experience and I felt a little out of place since this was a class meant for music majors. I had to practice many pieces and excerpts to build my harmonizing, sight reading, and performance skills. I learned that more practice is needed when learning new skills, even if the new skill is related to one I already possess. This class also helped me learn to budget my time and work on pieces gradually before submitting a final recording. I am grateful for all of the help my piano teacher gave me when I was struggling to make sense of playing pieces which had different rhythms in the right and left hands.
