This is a learn-the-basics course in which the essentials of keyboard harmony are introduced in order for the student to be able to play functional piano.

Areas of study include basic chords (major, minor, diminished, and augmented and their inversions), 7th chords, basic fingering and scale patterns, finger dexterity, rhythm drills, aural perception, and reading lead sheets/sheet music.

This is a practical, hands-on course for those interested in playing not only piano, but also organ and synthesizers. Introduction to MIDI is also included. Keyboard II is a continuation of practical technique leading to keyboard fluency.
