        You may have heard from your instructor or read in our newsletter about an upcoming masterclass at the Eugene Piano Academy. We are very lucky to have Dr. Claire Wachter and her graduate piano pedagogy students to be our master teachers for our upcoming class. Many of us probably are unaware what a masterclass is like and we assure you that your instructor probably has attended and even performed in many masterclasses. To make it simple, a masterclass is a public lesson. There are many benefits in participating and attending masterclasses. Are you performing or is your child performing in the October masterclass? Are you on the fence about attending the class? Here is a wonderful article to prepare yourself or your child for our first masterclass!
