Piping Performance: An Exploration of Artistic Expression through the Pipe Organ
MUSC 441
Spring 2021
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.

With the ability to create the most delicate and jarring of timbres, and to fill the space with "other-worldly" soundscapes, the pipe organ is a vehicle that transports one toward artistic and musical growth. This course will introduce students to the history and development of the instrument, while fostering other musical skills and studies that assist each student to find their voice as an artist-creator.

This multi-track course allows students to select their focus in one or more organ-related disciplines: improvisation, composition, performance practice, repertoire playing, church music, musicological research, etc. Students utilize their growing knowledge of the organ to complete three musical performance or research-related projects that they develop over the course of the semester. Final projects are publicly presented. A lab time in the form of private lessons, consultation, and individual practice is required.
