Course Category Available Basic Education in the Field
Course Objective

This course aims to provide mainly focused, functional piano knowledge and skills.

As a tool / instrument, piano, piano training and piano playing activities have been found primarily in important areas of music and music education areas with important functions. On the other hand, it is stated that the piano education and piano playing activity have important positive functions on the development of the individual without regard to a field or geography. Thus, it is expected that this Piano I course, which is included in the program at the point of functional piano education which can be evaluated in the auxiliary musical instrument, also has functions in broader perspectives on the individual, mainly psychomotor, emotional and cognitive knowledge and skills aimed at by the manipulation of related topics and interdisciplinary approaches. .

Course Content
With this course which is the first of the four semester piano course, it is planned to take the foundations of the achievements stated in the Course Objective.
Generally; introduction to functional piano knowledge and skills, basic knowledge of sociocultural, technical, pedagogical, aesthetic, technological and partly terminological and linguistic approaches (as far as this course is necessary)
1- World, Human, Art, Education, Music (with definitions and short, in-depth approaches),
2- Sound (physical and biopsychological features and effects and sound elements) and musical system (and superficially, modal, microtonal, atonal and tonal topics)
3-Polyphonic music / polyphony and homophony (history, culture, structural elements, notation, literature, terms in different languages and global approach)
4- Instruments and piano (piano in general, instrumental history, functions and usage areas, structural characteristics and mechanism, sound production system and sound product).
4- Piano pedagogy and information about systematic development, functions of piano education and performance, aim and importance of course.
5- Explaining the piano playing and working techniques (related anatomical and psychological information and technical awareness, muscle memory, concentration, motivation and breathing, finger technique, finger passages, arm weight usage, basic position , duate, action, synchronization, coordination and balances, finger strengthening / technical adaptation).
6- Recognition of bands, partitions and piano notation, observation and analysis of elements, layout and place-writing, decipherment and performance, left and fa keys (also layout time and dimension information with layout theme, grouping).
7- Dynamics: p, mf and f; two hands; compositional equilibrium and expression in the same, different and variable (cresc., decresc., and "subito" concepts)dynamics.
8- Articulations: Legato, non-legato, staccato, clipping with simple level bond segments. Two hands; same, different and variable articulations, compositional equilibrium in articulations.
9- Metronome and tempo, selection, change(section changes and A tempo, accel. and dim.), conservation and related study strategies.
10- Convergence of rhythm and application with their cycles (application of homophonic parity in simple melodic lines including different articulations and arpeggios), tone concept, basic functions, deciphering, memorization and scale studies (right octave and right octave).
11- Interpretative elements and aesthetic / intellectual uses (related articulation, compositional and ecological use of dynamics and tempo, diminuendo, permissive / recommended boundary "ad libitum" and additionally, puandorg theme, compositional / epistemological communication rationale / details, dramatize defining, analyzing, designing and evaluating aesthetic and intellectual elements).
(additional info) - General level (taking into consideration the class ratio of the individuals who started to receive vocational music education for the first time and who had the first piano lesson): From the Czerny op.599 example to the 20th level of the studies.
