Preludes are short works of music that have varied in form and style throughout the past three centuries. In this course, you will learn three famous preludes, each from a different era; the first was written by Bach, the second by Chopin, and third by Debussy.
Watch videos of Juilliard-trained pianists playing each piece, listen to lectures that offer instructional tips, explore the rich history of the prelude as a musical genre, and delve into media-rich lessons that will teach you a step-by-step approach to learning each new work.
You will boost your piano technique and build practice skills that will inspire and enrich your playing for years to come.
