Peter Silberman, Assistant Professor of Music Theory in the School of Music, recently published an article in volume 26 (2012) of the Journal of Music Theory Pedagogy. His article, "Teaching Classic Era Style Through Keyboard Accompaniment," investigates accompaniment patterns in keyboard works by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven, and then presents a method for teaching students to write music in the style of those composers. The article also includes successful compositions by Silberman's students.
