This DeCal aims to teach interested students the basic history and mechanics of the
carillon and the carillon community. Students will also learn basic carillon playing
technique through private student mentoring, and perform a piece of their own
choosing or from standard carillon repertoire.
Students should know how a keyboard functions and be able to read duple and triple
time signatures through three sharps and flats. Piano experience is not required; we
welcome all musical backgrounds. Weekly class meetings are 50 minutes long and
start on Berkeley time.
The class size should be around 10 people this semester. If you wish to receive formal
long-term carillon study, consider applying for Music 40 taught by the University
Carillonist, Jeff Davis.
