Marrs teaches master class to Singapore music conservatory students

Stuart Marrs, a professor of percussion in the University of Maine Division of Music in the School of Performing Arts, delivered a remote master class on timpani to percussion studies students at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music in Singapore on Nov. 4. “This was, indeed, a master class given by a master!” said conservatory faculty member Jonathan Fox about Marrs’ session. “The students had fun, learned a lot, and were engaged from start to finish. The amount of knowledge imparted in a few hours was simply remarkable. Dr. Marrs’ unique teaching style had students fixing problems on the spot and thinking for themselves, all the while smiling, laughing, and enjoying making music. Truly inspiring stuff, from technique to musical expression.” Read more about Marrs’ lecture on the Division of Music website.
