AEM ONLINE – Reflecting Diversity at the Keyboard with Alissa Duryee, harpsichord
January 31 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST$25
This class, a survey of works by women and people of color, provides resources for players and teachers of keyboard instruments seeking to reflect diversity in their repertoire. Baroque keyboard music will be the central focus, but some attention will be given to chamber and vocal music, as well as music of later periods which can be played on early instruments. Live musical examples will be shared; the participants are warmly invited to provide the examples themselves, or play/sing along to the ones given by the instructor. Lastly, my approach to this class will be pragmatic, focusing on materials which are readily available online, including selections appropriate for a great variety of levels and player profiles. Participants who would like to demonstrate materials in class should indicate this in the registration process, and choose a piece from this shared Google Drive Folder named ‘diversity’. Demonstrators will be chosen by Thursday, January 28. Geared to: keyboard players, others are welcome. Pitch: A = 415 (440 could be accommodated by contacting the instructor.)
AEM ONLINE offers four classes each weekend! Register for any number of sessions – classes are $25 per session and are offered using the Zoom meeting app, or your web browser.
