This treatise will address the late twentieth-century and well-known Korean composer Chung Gil Kim's piano work Go Poong (Memories of Childhood; 1981) as a case study on how to make pedagogical use of works intended for performance. Go Poong is purely a programmatic composition intended to create a musical picture of four items in Korean cultural history including: a temple incense jar, a wooden shoe, a jade hairpin, and a paper window patch. The piece is also capable of functioning as an ideal pedagogical tool for intermediate and early-advanced players to experience technical exercises and compositional features that are a necessary part in the training of successful pianists. Repertoire useful either as preparation or as follow-up will be suggested.
A Treatise submitted to the College of Music in partial fulfillment of the Doctor of Music.
