About Master Classes
At times when nationally recognized artists visit the Iowa City area, the Preucil School offers its students the opportunity to experience master classes.
In a master class, a respected artist works with one student or a small group, providing a learning opportunity for performers and observers. The guest artist will address matters of musicality and performance presentation, explaining key aspects of the piece to the performer and the audience.
Participants learn from the teacher’s feedback while gaining performance experience. Audience members learn from watching the interaction between teacher and student. For all the students, a new teacher’s different explanation or interpretation stimulates learning.
