Exploring Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas

On the “Introduction to Classical Music Composition” course, which I finished earlier this month, I looked at Rounded Binary Form, which is a type of structure the music has. For example, it will have an A section and a B section which will both sound different and the piece of music will move from A to B and back to A again.

One of the many things I didn’t look at was the Sonata Form, but Coursera (which has basically become my own personal university) is now running a course called “Exploring Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas“. However, this course is not about composition like the “Write Like Mozart” course I took. I’m sure though that there is much I can learn from exploring this new form and hope I can apply what I learn to my own music.
