"Just Enough Theory"

South Dakota State University’s Oscar Larson School of Performing Arts will hold Piano Day from 9 a.m. to noon in the Performing Arts Center on the SDSU campus.

Coordinated by Professor John Walker, this annual learning event is intended for piano students in 6th through 12th grade and is free of charge.

This year's topic, “Just Enough Theory” will look at popular piano pieces to see how a little musical analysis can enliven performances and deepen students' understanding of their music.

No advance preparation is required, but students are asked to bring a piece to play. School and private music teachers are also encouraged to attend.

To register, email or call 605-688-5187. Students and teachers can also register from 8:30-9 a.m. on October 12. Refreshments will be provided.
