Music Teachers National Association
Piano Celebration Week: Creating Powerful Piano Community
This session will outline a summary of the partnership established between the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Piano Area and the Corpus Christi Music Teachers Association, and the beneficiaries of this partnership. This collaboration, combined with support from students and their parents, piano store owners and others, culminated in the creation of what is dubbed “Piano Celebration Week,” bringing professionals and amateurs together in a new and exciting way, and exposing both to new concepts, knowledge and experiences. In just two short years, this unique festival has transformed the piano community of Corpus Christi and paved the path for hundreds of budding pianists in South Texas to the possibilities that serious music study can bring. Presenters will provide innovative ideas for uniting universities, independent music teachers and students to create multiple powerful piano communities around the country. Attendees will see how this model of partnership can easily be applied in other locations to achieve and experience the highest level of creative expression and bring people together in celebration of the mastery and artistry of piano performances.

Mother Suite, by Matthew McClung. Dino Mulic, piano.
1. Morning Invention 2. Ostinato Train Ride 3. Cubicle Rag 4. Chardonnay Nocturne These short pieces were written for my mother on her 70th birthday. From the time I was five years old, I can remember her waking up early every morning and taking a 1-hour train ride into Chicago, where she worked for an architectural firm, then a real estate firm, and then for a branch of the American Medical Association. She retired in 2013 after working for over 30 years. She loved working in downtown Chicago, and on many occasions she dragged her reluctant children with her to visit the Art Institute or the Field Museum or Marshall Fields, which was a grand old department store. Although she has more than earned her retirement and loves being at home, I knew she would miss her daily routine on some level. So I wrote this suite to remind her what her day was like, or at least how I imagined it to be. My mother is a fine amateur pianist, and these were written for her to play, but I’m not a pianist and apparently they are quite tricky. Fortunately I was able to convince my talented and accommodating colleague Dino Mulic to look at them. I had hoped to have him read them through once or twice, but he has decided to perform them in public, for which I am simultaneously grateful and terrified. The pieces are each modeled after specific composers or genres. The first, Morning Invention, is a two-part invention in the style of J. S. Bach, though it starts with a decidedly non-Baroque alarm clock. One can hear first my mother, and then my stepfather awaken and stagger around the kitchen, grunting and making coffee. Morning Ostinato is her train ride, which often began in the dark. I have taken this ride many times myself, and there is a hypnotic repetitiveness to it that is well suited to the minimalist and post-minimalist styles of Steve Reich and Phillip Glass (composers that I favor, though she decidedly does not). It begins in a semi-rural landscape, hurtles through a number of small towns, and eventually rolls into the majestic skyline of downtown Chicago. The Cubicle Rag is meant to reflect the disjointed, hectic pace of a bustling office space in the big city, in the style of Scott Joplin. My mother would want listeners to know that she had her own office, NOT a cubicle. I claim artistic license. Our day ends with the Chardonnay Nocturne. As a child, I can remember listening to her practice Chopin after I had gone to bed (and occasionally asking her to keep it down!) To this day, Chopin reminds me of being tucked into my tiny bed in my tiny room, in our little old house in a small town, the two of us ending our day with the shared pleasure of music.
