What you will learn

This lecture-class is intended to give the music lover a deeper understanding of Chopin by presenting him in the perspective of his own time, and by offering a greater variety of compositions than is accessible elsewhere. This lecture will offer a rich supplement that will illuminate Chopin’s background and deepen the student’s understanding of his life. *Students should have some experience at the piano and ability to read music.

EXPANSION OF KNOWLEDGE

The students will become acquainted with new information and compositions that would expand their horizons, and they will know the great Chopin with a degree of intimacy that would be difficult to achieve if they are limited to the usual family repertoire.

PLAYING

The students will be able to practice sight-reading (voluntarily) in class or merely play new things to extend themselves.

SOCIOLIGY IN MUSIC

Students will explore Chopin's social relationships and how they influenced his works.
