MEN 262 - Accompanying Techniques II


A study of the piano as an accompanying medium for standard vocal and instrumental literature, including congregational singing. Special emphasis is given to stylistic problems, orchestral reductions, and ensemble musicianship. This course is designed as a two-semester course (one credit each). Semester I (Fall) emphasizes various areas of sacred music accompaniment that the student will encounter (hymn playing, solo, and anthem accompaniment). Also explored are recitative, aria, and chorus accompaniment, including an introduction to basic performance practice as it relates to the organ and harpsichord. Semester II (Spring) focuses on the study of accompaniments for art songs, operatic arias, and instrumental works. The keyboard major must pass each semester once for credit, but is permitted to take either part multiple times as well. The course satisfies an ensemble requirement each semester taken. Second semester.
