Faculty

Kevin Korsyn

Description

Beethoven’s 32 Piano Sonatas are one of the cornerstones of the classical music repertoire.  In a series of eight ninety-minute lectures, Kevin Korsyn, Professor of Music Theory at the University of Michigan, will explore these works in depth while using them to illustrate general principles about how to listen to music.  Professor Korsyn will perform all musical examples himself at the keyboard, bringing the music to life.

This is a course for people who are passionate about classical music and eager to learn more about it, but who have not necessarily had any advanced technical training or taken any college-level music courses. It is recommended that participants have a basic knowledge of how to read musical notation prior to applying to this class. All other concepts will be explained in class, and all musical terms will be defined as they arise. If you played in your high school band or sang in a community chorus, you have more than enough experience to take this course.
