The St. Paul Piano Teachers Association has chosen St. Thomas Academy senior Brock Carlson of Lake Elmo as one of four high-school pianists in the Twin Cities to perform at a Masters Class on Saturday, March 29.

Dr. Jessica Johnson, associate professor of piano and director of graduate studies in piano pedagogy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will preside over the class. Carlson will perform “Sonata, Op. 2, No. 1” by Beethoven, the piece he submitted as his audition piece for the Masters Class.

In a Masters Class, students perform for a distinguished guest instructor, who provides them direction on how to refine their performance for a live audience.
