HOW CAN TEACHERS BENEFIT FROM A MASTERCLASS?

BY VANESSA CHISLER

RECENTLY ETMTA MEMBERS HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF ATTENDING A MASTERCLASS CONDUCTED BY FELLOW MEMBER DR. GJERGJI GAQI.  FIVE ETMTA STUDENTS PERFORMED FOR DR. GAQI AND WERE CRITIQUED ON THEIR PERFORMANCE.

DR. GAQI PRESENTED A WARM, PERSONABLE PRESENCE TO THE STUDENTS IN HIS DEMONSTRATIONS. PHRASING, DYNAMICS, FINGERING AND OVERALL MUSICAL AWARENESS WERE JUST A FEW OF THE THINGS DR.GAQI ADDRESSED WITH STUDENTS.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A MASTERCLASS TO TEACHERS?

-MASTERCLASSES OFFER A FRESH PERSPECTIVE ON A PERFORMANCE OR PERFORMANCE LITERATURE. HAVING A PROFESSIONAL COLLEAGUE LISTEN AND OFFER NEW SUGGESTIONS IS BENEFICIAL.

-MASTERCLASSES PRESENT EXCELLENT NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES. WITH COMBINED EXPERIENCES AND EXPERTISE, COLLEAGUES CAN DISCUSS AND SHARE INTERPRETATIONS AND IDEAS OF THE EXECUTION OF A PIECE OF MUSIC.

-MASTERCLASSES REJUVENATE!  WITH NEW IDEAS AND A NEW PERSPECTIVE, A MASTERCLASS CAN REJUVENATE AND RE-ENERGIZE THE TEACHING EXPERIENCE.

MASTERCLASSES ARE ENJOYABLE AND NECESSARY TO KEEP TEACHERS FRESH, ENERGIZED AND AT THEIR PERSONAL BEST FOR THEIR STUDENTS.

THANK YOU DR. GAQI FOR THE OPPORTUNITY!
