Paul Whitley Master Class

By Broc Hite, Piano Instructor

Update: The class was a success! Below is a picture of Dr. Whitley and two of the three participants whose parents gave me photo permission.

Dr. Paul Whitley will be giving a Master Class at Shepherd Music School on Sunday, May 5th at 2 pm. The school is located at Central UMC of Rogers on 2535 New Hope Road. Dr. Whitley is the Associate Professor of Piano at John Brown University, and also the Past President of the Northwest Arkansas Music Teachers Association (NAMTA).

He was originally scheduled to give this master class in conjunction with NAMTA, but I was the only one to sign up a student. So, he offered the class to my studio, and I offered it to the music school. One student each will be playing from Miss Evy’s, Miss Sandy’s, and my studio! It is scheduled to last just one hour.

Paul runs the high-school-aged JBU Summer Piano Academy in Siloam Springs in late July. If you’re looking for an intense piano week for your high-school aged pianist, this is a perfect opportunity to see Paul in action. The academy Website is at…/summer-academy/piano/

Please join us to support our talented participants and to enjoy how a master teacher can improve their playing, even though it’s already at a high level!
