Music Lessons On Rittenhouse Square: At Curtis And Way Beyond!

Music lives, as it has for decades, on Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square. And now - as the Curtis Institute of Music works with a company that distributes free classes through the Internet - world-class instruction will be available throughout the world. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, the renowned conservatory is offering two pilot classes to audiences everywhere a computer and Internet access can be found. Coursera is making this happen.

Exploring Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas launches September 3rd.  From the Repertoire: Western Music History through Performance, launches October 1st .

Listen to Susan's interview with pianist Jonathan Biss about his course, Exploring Beethoven's Piano Sonatas, which launches September 3, 2013.
