Masterclass with Tom Key

Tom Key came for a masterclass Monday, July 1 and was FABULOUS with the kids. At the end of the afternoon, each student stood up and told the “audience” his/her answers to these questions:

  • 1) What is the hardest part of playing your instrument?
  • 2) What is the best part of playing your instrument?
  • 3) What is the best part of playing your music?
  • 4) What do you want the audience to know about the composer?

Each student was so articulate — smart bunch — and Tom helped them, throughout the whole session, to speak with feeling from the heart. Now, if we can translate that into playing their music, we have it made! That’s our goal and we will, thanks to our wonderful coaching staff and masterclass artists.
