The Piano Handbook



Every piano major is expected to pass both the Technique and Performance parts of the Sophomore Proficiency Exam by the end of their sophomore year. Only after all requirements are passed may the student enroll in 4000-level piano. Students unable to pass this exam are usually advised to pursue another major.




The piano handbook



At least 20 minutes of memorized music will be prepared for the final jury of the sophomore year. The repertoire should include standard piano works from at least three different styles and stylistic periods. The student will be evaluated on his/her level of advancement and potential to play a 30-40-minute public recital in the following year.


At least 15 minutes of memorized music will be prepared for the final jury of the sophomore year. The repertoire should include standard piano works from at least three different styles and stylistic periods.


All recitals must be scheduled when classes are in session, but not during the last week of classes (dead week) or during finals week. No recital may be scheduled to conflict with a major ensemble performance, a faculty recital, or another event in the piano department.


All students except doctoral students must preview their degree recitals in front of a committee of the piano faculty approximately two weeks before the intended recital date. Piano recital previews last twenty minutes and are normally held during the recital hour on Tuesdays, 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm. The entire recital must be prepared for performance from memory at the preview. You may choose the first piece and the faculty will ask for selections from the remainder of the program. Bring the following materials to your preview:


Accompanying and chamber music with your colleagues is encouraged, but it needs to be planned together with your instructor. Always keep him/her informed of your activities. Upper-level BM/Piano majors take four semesters of Studio Accompanying in place of large ensembles. Students may wish to play duet or duo-piano literature as part of their piano study. Undergraduate and graduate students may also enroll in Piano Chamber Music, as advised.


The piano department keeps a list of experienced pianists to recommend for accompanying needs in the school. If you are experienced and would like to be included on the list, contact Prof. Stephanie Shames at sshames@ou.edu.


All faculty and student piano recitals and master classes, as well as piano guest artist recitals and master classes are considered by the piano faculty as required events for piano majors. Attendance or absence may be noted. When these events take place in Sharp Concert Hall, please sit on the main floor rather than in the balcony. Other concerts featuring major piano chamber-music works are also important, and you should attend as many of these as you can. If you have a schedule conflict with a piano event, tell your piano teacher and it may be possible for you to be excused from a class.


Be certain that the piano practice room doors are closed and locked at all times, and do not take any food or drink (besides water) into them. Do not leave your books or valuables unattended in a practice room. The School of Music is not responsible for lost or stolen items.


If any piano in the School of Music malfunctions in a way that it cannot be used productively, please fill out the Piano Maintenance Request Form available at music.ou.edu/piano-maintenance. This form will send emails to piano faculty for review. Please do not request a complete tuning of a piano, as the pianos are tuned on a regular schedule according to the changes in the seasons.


Pianos in the performance halls are not to be used for rehearsals except when scheduled with the Concert Hall Manager. Report to your piano teacher anyone you think is unauthorized who is using a School of Music piano.


In the course of piano study it is often necessary that there be momentary physical contact between instructor and student for the purpose of demonstration. Do not be afraid to tell the instructor if this makes you uncomfortable at any time.

The Handbook for Teachers offers a detailed explanation of the key ideas and approaches for the Tales of a Musical Journey curriculum. It includes unique teaching strategies that help teachers use the piano method with maximum effectiveness. It also has step-by-step instructions and lesson plans, and teaching tools for developing musical ability in young children.


Handbook for Piano Teachers is the most detailed and helpful guide book for teachers. I would recommend it to every piano teacher, especially the ones who are just starting their journey as a teacher.


With clear and easy-to-understand exercises, The Piano Handbook is perfect for anyone interested in learning the piano or improving their skills.

Carl Humphries is a pianist, composer, and music journalist. He studied piano and composition in London, Turin, and Berlin, and has performed at some of the most prestigious classical and jazz venues in the UK. His workshops and lecture/recitals are in demand at music academies and university music departments throughout Europe and in the US.


These materials will help the teacher organize a solid curriculum for his/her piano students. It provides valuable information about preparing students through the various levels of study by recognized pedagogue Tinka Knopf de Esteban. Dr. Knopf was associate dean at the Peabody Conservatory and she currently is the pedagogical consultant to the Conservatori Professional de Music I Dansa de les Illes Baleares in Spain. The Piano Curriculum Chart is meant to cover piano literature starting with the first works after the traditional beginning method books. The levels: Learner, Transition, Intermediate, Advanced, and Pre-Conservatory are designed to cover a program of study based on the technical and theoretical demands of the literature. The Piano Curriculum Guide includes a guide on how to use the chart which is an attractive wall or desk chart that outlines the curriculum at each level. Dr. Knopf has adapted the Liszt Technical Exercises so that they are accessible to students and teachers who are using the curriculum chart. Each exercise is correlated with the appropriate level of literature. The scale cards and guide teach scales in integrated relationships of theory and harmonic structure as used in the compositional patterns in the piano literature outlined in the chart. Dr. Knopf has managed to integrate all of these elements into a package that will surely become a standard teaching tool for piano teachers. We are proud to publish her work.


For over 30 years, the Randy Potter School of Piano Technology has offered quality instruction for beginning and intermediate students in piano tuning, repairing, regulating, voicing, apprentice training and business practices.


In 1928, Arthur Edward Heacox, building on this simple idea, created the pocket-sized bok Project Lessons in Orchestration which taught orchestration by showing students how to go from piano to orchestra.


From Piano to Strings is the first Handbook in the series. It teaches you 13 broad techniques from Joseph Wagner's Reference Chart of Keyboard Idioms for turning piano parts into full scale string ensembles. Each example contains the original piano part and the string ensemble orchestration above it, along with text explaining the background to the orchestration. Newly added text examines MIDI mockup issues. Newly created MIDI examples (included in this Bundle) contain both piano and string parts for you to import into your sequencing software. The piano examples have also been exported from Sibelius and recorded as MP3 audio for you to listen to as you study the Handbook.


The Workbook which is used with all three Handbooks in the series, follows the same exact approach. You're given dozens of piano examples, organized by technique, which you'll score for the appropriate section, in this case, the String Section. The majority of the piano examples have had their piano parts exported from Sibelius as MP3s (included in this Bundle), so that, regardless of piano skill, you can hear the example and get the sound into your musical imagination. Ideally, you'll then record your work using either a sequencing program with a quality string library or a notation program that comes with a string library. 041b061a72
