Still Striking the Right Chord
The equipment may have changed, but the notes remain the same. The 1983 class met in the Chappelear Electric Piano Laboratory in Presser Hall. Today, Mariko Kaneda (left), assistant professor of music, leads Class Piano I (MUS116) students in instruction on Yamaha Music Laboratory equipment in Sanborn Hall 327. The students (from left, front row) are: Ni Dong ’20, Alex McPherson ’20 and Brandon Solomon ’20 and (back row) Kamryn Stanton ’20. Students learn scales and arpeggios, chord progression, transposition, harmonization, improvisation, and build a repertoire from classics to modern.
