On Wednesday, July 26th, 2017, Melody Bober gave a presentation at Katy’s Music and Arts La Centerra. The presentation was sponsored by Alfred Publishing. Melody Bober presented highlights for newly-composed pieces that she has composed in addition to other composers’ compositions, such as Tom Gerou and Robert Vandall. She performed her own compositions, demonstrated creative approaches to performing piano pieces (such as a student adding family members to play percussion parts with a piano solo), called on audience members to sightread, play games, and add percussion parts, and presented ideas for engaging different types of students – older beginners, teens, etc. Refreshments were provided and teachers were encouraged to review newly published pieces. Several KMTA teachers attended – Kathleen Daugherty, Carolina Tong, Nancy Stevenson, Carmen Yip, and Libby Mickey.
