Professor and accomplished pianist Joyce Moorman teaches music classes in the Music and Art Department at BMCC.

Her areas of specialization within the field of music are composition and piano. Her compositions have been performed internationally and she has performed as an accompanist nationally with chamber and choral groups.

Professor Moorman also is a commissioned composer. Her "Tone Poem for Victims of Racism and Hatred" was recorded by Vienna Modern Masters and is available through Naxos. In 1997, she was appointed by the Governor of New York to the Advisory Music Panel for the New York State Council on the Arts, which she served on for three years.

According to Moorman, the course most related to music composition that she teaches is Introduction to Digital Music.

"Composers today rely on the computer, especially for the production of musical scores, the creation of new sounds, and the recording of improvisational or nonwritten music or sounds," she says. "I also presently teach BMCC's Basic Music class, which introduces students to music notation symbols and the building blocks of music, scales and chords."

She adds that she teaches piano at BMCC and "Facility at the piano is a tremendous asset to anyone seeking to pursue a career in music."
