ETSU to offer class for adults who wish to learn to play the piano
East Tennessee State University’s Office of Professional Development will offer a non-credit piano class designed for adults interested in learning to play the piano or in reviewing and refreshing their piano skills.
Participants will study the mechanics of playing the piano, develop music reading skills and gain an understanding of basic harmony and rhythm through the use of classical and popular melodies. No prior background in playing piano or reading music is required.
The $150 course begins Tuesday, May 21, and will meet from 6:30-8 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday for six weeks, ending Thursday, June 27. The class will meet in ETSU’s Mathes Hall piano lab.
The instructor for the course will be Jerilyn Paolini, a member of ETSU’s music faculty since 2001. Paolini teaches individual and group piano classes and directs the ETSU Summer Piano Camp. She also regularly performs in music department concerts.
