Upcoming Events


Wednesday, February 14, 2018- Membership Meeting and Program


Spend your Valentine's Day morning with us and come to our monthly membership meeting followed by a program given by Ivana Muncan: Music and Memory.
This presentation will focus on the history of memorization in music performance, the different types of memory, and how quality memorization skills can improve our students’ performances by enhancing understanding and security.
Memorizing and performing pieces of music is a substantial part of musical performance. In this presentation Ivana will be focusing on the history of the practice of memorizing music, different types of memory such as aural, analytical, visual and muscle memory, how they impact the quality of performance, and what is the value of memorization. By teaching our students about the various types of memory we can foster good memorization skills and greatly improve students’ performance level, understanding, and security in their performances. Through piano repertoire examples, both from the traditional piano repertoire and from avant-garde repertoire of the 20th century, she will explore strategies for memorizing pieces suitable for college level students
