This DeCal aims to teach interested students the basic history and mechanics of the carillon. Students will also learn basic carillon playing technique and perform a piece of their own choosing or from standard carillon repertoire.
Students must have working knowledge of a keyboard and be able to read duple and triple time signatures through 3 sharps/flats. Piano experience is not required - we welcome all musical backgrounds! Weekly class meetings are 50 minutes long and start on Berkeley time.
According to the number of available private instructors, the class size should be around 10-15 people this semester. This class is a great introduction to the carillon if you want to play for a semester with no long-term obligations.
If you want to receive formal and long-term carillon study, consider applying for Music 40 taught by the University Carillonist, Jeff Davis.
The first four weeks (starting September 6th) will take place on Wednesdays 7-8 pm. After those four weeks, we will schedule 1-on-1 lesson time (1 hour per week) with a student from the Berkeley Carillon Guild who will be your mentor.
