Master Class

Master Class


This Zoom master class for students ages 11-18 will be a music theory workshop for musicians and vocalists, led by UNL junior piano performance major Kaleb Wilkening. Wilkening studies under Dr. Paul Barnes and has served as a counselor for the Lied Center Piano Academy for the past two years, leading sessions on music theory for students. In this workshop, students will dive into the different aspects of form in pop music, as well as learn about common chord structures seen in songs by artists such as The Beatles, Taylor Swift, and others! This course will give students a fun and engaging approach to music theory, help build self-confidence and skills as a musician, and allow students to work collaboratively and learn from one another. No preparation required – just a willingness to learn and try something new!

Participants will need a computer or tablet with a front facing camera and microphone.
