Guest master class by pianist Craig Sheppard.

Professor of Piano, Craig Sheppard, joined the faculty of the School of Music of the University of Washington in 1993 after living twenty years in London. Known for his ebullience and passion at the keyboard, allied to a technical mastery and deep commitment to both scholarly and historic perspectives, Sheppard continues to enjoy a highly successful international concert career that has spanned more than forty years. He has made twelve trips to the Far East since 2002, giving master classes and performing in leading conservatories and universities in China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Singapore. He made two trips to New Zealand, in 2007 and 2008, performing both books of Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier, returning in September, 2012 to perform the first two books of Liszt’s Années de Pèlerinage. That same month, he undertook a residency at the Melba Conservatory of the University of Melbourne in Australia, during which he gave recitals of the Liszt Années and Debussy’s Préludes, in addition to numerous master classes and seminars.

Convenient parking is available at the University's 19th Avenue and 21st Avenue parking ramps; you must pay a fee to park in these ramps.
