Carlos Gardels, Master Class Chair is pleased to announce the dates and master teachers for two exciting piano master classes, both of which will take place at Steinway Piano Gallery in Pasadena. Carlos thanks Dr. Janet Colburn for her assistance in securing these outstanding master teachers.

• Sunday, Oct 15, 2023 at 2.00 PM – Dr. Sarkis Baltaian from Pasadena Conservatory of Music
• Sunday March 10, 2024 at 2:00PM – Mr. Fabio Bidini from the Colburn School

If you are interested in having a student play in the October class, please contact Carlos Gardels, at stating the name, age and general level of your student, as well as a link to a YouTube video of the intended piece your student wishes to play. Consideration to play is generally given on a first-come-first serve basis, although we try to create a variety of ages and levels in the class. The coming October class is a good opportunity for high school seniors with auditions coming up in the winter, and that will be kept in mind during the selection process. Please also feel free to reach out about any other concerns regarding the classes.  The fee for participation in these master classes is $75 per student.

Carlos Gardels, Chair
