Piano Master Classes Offered at NECC
February 9, 2016 – 8:40 pm

The Music Program at Northern Essex Community College will offer two free master classes in the art of piano playing by NECC music faculty member Christina Dietrich, Sunday, March 6, at 5 p.m. and Sunday, April 4 at 4 p.m. in the Hartleb Technology Center on the Haverhill campus, 100 Elliot St.

The purpose of these free workshops will be to give pianists the chance to perform and learn in a cooperative group setting. Solo piano works and instrumental and vocal works with piano accompaniment of various levels of difficulty will be explored. Various aspects of piano performance and preparation will also be discussed. Students at all levels of playing ability will benefit from attending these workshops.

Professor Dietrich has appeared as a soloist with several orchestras. She has performed on the stages of Jordan Hall in Boston, Symphony Hall in Boston, and Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York. She earned a bachelor’s in music from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, her master’s in music from Boston University and pursued her Doctor of Musical Arts degree at that institution.

In addition to maintaining a concert career, Professor Dietrich is currently piano faculty and new department co-chair at Indian Hill Music, new faculty at the Steinway Piano Academy Boston/Natick, adjunct professor at both Mount Wachusett Community College and Northern Essex Community College, and founder/director of the Chopin Conservatory of Music on the North Shore.  She has held faculty positions at the New England Conservatory of Music, Brookline Music School and North Shore Community College. Professor Dietrich regularly presents master classes in the art of piano performance, and is the artistic director of the Summer Music Festival at Northern Essex Community College, now in its sixth season.
