Today Dr. Tobin is starting a new Monday series of rotating composers and pieces. Bach’s first Prelude from the Well Tempered Clavier is a great piece for students, for church offertories, for recitals, for weddings, and for fun!
In this video Dr. Tobin approaches how to learn and interpret this piece, which was not originally written for the piano!
Dr. Fritz Gechter from TAMIU in Laredo returned for another great master class on Saturday, March 7th!
Many people played, we heard Bartok’s Slovak Dance, a Haydn Scherzo, a Bach Prelude in C Major, Flying Leaves by Kölling, the Mozart D Major Duet, the Chopin Eb Nocturne, and the Chopin Etude in F Major from Opus 10!
Everyone appreciated the warm and helpful guidance provided by Dr. Gechter.
Our next master class will be with Sophia Gilmson, Professor of Pedagogy at UT Austin on April 4th from 2-4:30 PM.
