Johan Botes Piano Masterclass

Greater Austin Music Academy will be hosting a master class with guest artist Dr. Johan Botes on Thursday May 18th at 7PM in the KMFA recording studios.

Masterclass Program:


Chopin: Waltz, Op. 64 No. 1, “Minute Waltz”

Performed by Logan Hartmann


Debussy: Serenade for the Doll, from “Children’s Corner”

Performed by Georgia Ringstaff


Debussy: Bruyères, from “Préludes book II”

Performed by Hannah del Toro

Half-performance, half-lesson, students perform their pieces and are then guided by a visiting artist – usually of exceptional calibre. In this case, three of own GAMA piano students will play for our guest artist Dr. Johan Botes.

Dr. Botes certainly has a lot of knowledge to share. A native of South Africa, he regularly performs around the world in solo, chamber, and concerto settings, and is currently on faculty at Marshall University. Besides that, he’s just a lot of fun! You can check out Johan and Matt playing some two-piano Poulenc here.

This is a very limited seating event! There is a ticket fee of $20 to cover the cost of our visiting teacher.
