Laredo Masterclass

The February 24th master class featured 5 students from the piano class of Fritz Gechter at Texas A&M International University in Laredo, TX. After lunch at Cenote Cameron, Tony Tobin worked with the following students and pieces:

Bach: Prelude & Fugue in C Minor (Bk I)
Sarah Romero-Chong

Mozart: Sonata in C Major, K. 545 (III)
Kimberly Garcia

Liszt: Valse Oublier
Paola Garcia

Mozart: Sonata in F Major, K. 332 (III)
Leslie Suarez

Scriabin: Etude in C-sharp Minor, Op. 42, No. 5
Orlando Reyes

The class was  great chance for the students to try out their pieces before juries and recitals and they all seemed to benefit from the comments and experience. After the class everyone went to Ramen Tatsu’ya for dinner.
