This is a research project for private or class piano students or writing classes that wish to do a cross-curricular project involving the arts.
Students are to answer questions and write about two required topics (General Information and History, and How Does It Work?) and also on 3 of 6 optional topics (Pedals, Piano Types and Relatives, Famous Piano Players and Piano Usage in Popular Music, Famous Classical Piano Music and Composers, Pianos Today, or Taking Care of a Piano).
Each topic has a worksheet to aid in finding information for the paper. A grading rubric is also included on the last page.
Length of time spent on this product depends on the age of the students, how often you meet with your students and how much research will be performed outside of class.
