Piano Pedagogy and Performance
Dr. Joyce Hall Wolf
The purpose of this presentation is to provide insight into music history and its musical eras’ styles. It explores both how each musical style evolved throughout time, as well as the mixing of individual styles. This project takes various melodies and reharmonizes them to sound as though they were written in the styles of other distinct musical eras. It supplied an introduction to music and its role in societies, a history of musical eras, and finally the process of creating arrangements for the chosen melodies. This creative project uniquely alters one’s musical expectations by presenting known melodies in various styles that would not ordinarily be exhibited. In all aspects, it is an extremely informative project focused on reimagining music and choosing a style.
