Hartburg, Lauren M., "The Budding Musician: A Method for Developing Cognitive and Physical Proficiency at the Piano" (2015). Senior Honors Theses. 517.
A comprehensive piano curriculum involves physical performance development alongside musicianship training. This thesis will discuss the decline in music literacy alongside research supporting the benefits of a creative, holistic, flexible music education program. These items will then be applied to developing an elementary piano curriculum. A four-volume piano method emphasizing theory and musicianship in the context of performance literature is outlined and level one is presented in detail.
