Solo Piano...

you all have them... please do not compare/contrast with your fellow classmates- they have theirs... you have yours... and i think it is important you write something now that is specifically influenced by your temp track.

for wednesday, please bring a full piano score version AND version with just melody and chord changes for mike lang, our pianist (who you should do a google search on so you can get to know him).

also, if you have any questions for robert kraft- please email me them asap.

I think some people can now exhale about leading a band.


Ok, so now I want you to go watch:

(you can download it here:

Come up with a solo piano piece.

All of you need to come up with a piece of temp music- Chopin, Ravel... SOMETHING...

and get ready to compose your own- after we pass the temp music around! (Brandon's idea- blame him!)
