In this single 5 ECTS credit module, students will learn how to use chord symbol charts
and provide piano accompaniment in a wide range of modern settings such as:

  • Choirs

  • Classroom teaching

  • Musical theatre

  • Jazz, pop and rock music bands

  • Social gatherings. 

The module caters for both beginners and more experienced pianists who would like to move away from fully
written sheet music and develop a pianistic shorthand for various settings. Though this is an introductory
module, a basic level of general musical theory/competence is desirable.

Delivery 

12 live tutorials of 1 hour in duration will take place weekly which are fully online.  Resources and recorded presentations will be available on Moodle afterwards
The time commitment is approximately 3 hours per week.
