Burger publishes Class Piano textbook


Cole Burger, Associate Teaching Professor (class piano and piano pedagogy), recently published a class piano textbook. Keyboard Skills for the Practical Musician provides undergraduate music majors in class piano courses with the techniques and fundamentals they need to flourish into independent, versatile musicians who play with confidence and sensitivity. Organized by skill (rather than level), the topics sequenced in this textbook offer endless flexibility for instructors while guiding students in a step-by-step approach through the development of essential keyboard skills—such as reading, harmonization, improvisation, and accompaniment—supporting concepts learned in music theory, ear training, private lessons, methods classes, and ensemble courses. It is available from Routledge.
