COLLEGE AND SCHOOL PROGRAMS

 

During his 30-plus years as a full-time concert pianist, Frederick Moyer has brought his infectious enthusiasm and musical insights throughout the United States and beyond. Some of his past presentations to colleges and schools:

• Master classes for piano students
• Lecture-recitals
• Coaching of pianists and chamber groups
• Workshops for piano students and teachers. Possible topics:
  • - Prep-Talk: a how-to of preparing for a performance
  • - Practice and Memorization Techniques
• The Classical Jazz Connection: a discussion and demonstration of:
  • - Classical music's great improvisors (Bach, Mozart, Chopin, Liszt, etc.)
  • - Classical forms and how they have been utilized by jazz musicians
  • - The many "jazz" harmonies that were actually invented by classical composers.
     This presentation would also include Fred performing his own transcriptions of improvisations by Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner, Bill Evans and others.
• Computers and the Performing Musician. For over 20 years, Fred has been creating music software for his own use in practicing, analyzing, recording and performing.
• Robert Schumann's 3rd and 4th Piano Sonatas:
  •   In a presentation that combines performance with PowerPoint demonstration, Moyer recounts his and Dr. Paul Green's excavation of several unpublished works by Robert Schumann including an unfinished Fourth Piano Sonata and an early version of the Finale Movement to his Piano Sonata No. 3. Moyer discusses how both works relate directly with Schumann's famous courtship to Clara Wieck and their turbulent relations with her father, and how these pieces offer fascinating clues about Schumann's compositional approach.
