High School Piano Class

In my High School Student Teaching Placement at Cass Technical High School, I created a multi-week lesson unit on chord progressions and following “lead sheets,” that finished with a performance project. Students had to play a song of their choice from a lead sheet, performing with their own rhythmic “comp,” backing track or beat, and following the form of the song. Below are the lesson slides from this unit, and below that are examples of student work.
