KEENE STATE COLLEGE 2007-2008 COURSE PROPOSAL FORM DATE: 16 October 2007 SPONSORING PROGRAM AND CHAIR: Music Department – Joseph Darby, Chair. PROPOSAL SPONSOR: Craig Sylvern , 8.2185 TITLE SUMMARY: MU 235 PERFORMANCE LITERATURE EXISTING (OLD) DATA: Sections offered in piano and guitar literature. Treats performance literature from all periods. Classes include performance of examples with coaching in stylistic interpretation. Piano: Fall, even years. Guitar: Spring, odd years PROPOSED (NEW) COURSE TITLE: n/a PROPOSED ACTION: Underline proposed changes. Course Addition Number Change Title Change Credit Change Description Change Prerequisite Change Course Deletion Course Replacement Other: PROPOSED (NEW) COURSE DESCRIPTION: Sections offered in voice, piano, guitar, wind/percussion literature. Treats performance literature from all periods. Classes include performance of examples with coaching in stylistic interpretation. Voice: Spring. Piano: Fall, even years. Guitar: Spring, odd years, Winds/Percussion: as needed. LEARNING OUTCOMES: • Demonstrate a general knowledge of the most important repertoire of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. • Explore the literature in terms of technique, interpretation, and performance, • Demonstrate an understanding of the characteristic and stylistic differences between periods and composers, and articulate this understanding both orally and in written form RATIONALE: This change is being made to: 1 establish parity within all the performance degree areas. Currently, vocalists, pianists, and guitarists are required to enroll in a literature course, but wind players and percussionists take Introduction to Electronic Music instead. Requiring this course of all majors will assure that students in all performance areas are enrolled in comparable curricula; and, 2 eliminate redundancy in the course offerings. The Music Department offers two literature courses for performance majors, MU 235 and MU 239, but their descriptions and learning outcomes are very similar. Creating a single course would consolidate and simplify the department’s course offerings. RESOURCES: No additional resources would be needed for vocal, piano, or guitar literature sections (these are already offered regularly). Since there are very few performance majors in the wind/percussion area (currently five), the wind and percussion section will be offered as needed, and will be taught by a specialist in that area. What additional library resources will be required? None ADVISORY OPINIONS: n/a Updated 14 May 2004.
