The Weatherford Music Teachers Association earlier this month sponsored its annual master class on the stage of the Margorie Alkek Fine Arts Center at Weatherford College. Each year, WMTA invites a distinguished teacher to teach selected students in a master class setting.
This year’s guest master teacher was Dr. Richard Shuster from Texas Women’s University in Denton. Shuster has taught for several years at TWU, and recently he received a sabbatical to teach piano at the prestigious Liszt Academy in Budapest, Hungary.
Performers this year were Zoe Cooper, student of Paul Andrews; Seth Bullard and Sarah Willoughby, student of Holly Hughes; Meg McCright, student of Russell Hughes; Estelle Stephens, student of Emily Laney; and Jaelle Carlson, student of Liz Wynne. Both students and teachers came away from the master class with valuable instruction from Shushter.
