My connection with Sylvia Eckes of the Sarasota Music Archive and the International Grieg Society produced another connection with Gloria Cook at Rollins College. Gloria was invited to present a piano masterclass on March 15, 2019. All students were invited to attend, and all piano students in studio class were required to attend.
This was a highly successful masterclass, with 2 of our piano majors playing and working with Gloria. Gloria was gracious and informative, especially giving out students a larger sense of piano pedagogy and the many possible lines of thought that exist in the development of piano technique.
