TOF Courses

In January 2010 I retired and moved back to the UK, since when I’ve done no regular teaching..

Cours donnés à l'Université de Montréal 2002-2009

Courses (‘modules’ ) given at the University of Liverpool 1993-2002

  Details of other courses I taught in Liverpool are no longer on line but much of their course material and some student work originating from those days is still accessible (see below).

Lecture/Reading

Écoute/Listening

Ce cours comprend un répertoire de base dont l'écoute est nécessaire et obligatoire. Malhereusement, à cause de la législation restrictive en vigeur dans le domaine des droits d’auteur vis-à-vis la diffusion des connaissances musicales dans l’éducation publique, il est impossible, voire illégal, que le professeur fasse copier pour ces étudiants le repertoire de base de ce cours.

Cependant il dépose deux copies privées de ce répertoire dans la bibliothque. Le répertoire de base est donc disponible aux oreilles de chaque étudiant.

Les enregistrements du répertoire sont en format MP3 sur un DVD ou sur une clé USB. Les discographies et les annotations de mes enregistrements personnels ne sont accessibles qu’aux étudiants en possession du mot de passe et du code d’identification corrects. Les étudiants ne recevront ces codes d'accès qu'après avoir rempli le formulaire (qui n'existe plus puisque je ne suis plus là!).
