Accompanying William Wieland
Musicians frequently ask me to accompany or collaborate with them. I cannot say yes to everyone so I try to adhere to the following guidelines:
  • No Juries I must listen to all of the piano juries and proficiency exams. I also give (and correct) theory and class piano exams every semester. My freshman courses (theory and class piano) include dozens of short quizzes. I need time to calculate semester grades.
  • No Convocations or Studio Classes unless the repertoire will also be performed at a recital or competition.
  • Only 2 Large Commitments per Semester Factors include difficulty (practice time) and rehearsal time.
I reserve the right to say yes or no to any request.
My pecking order:
  1. Faculty Colleagues and Guest Artists
  2. NSU Ensembles
  3. Senior Recitals
  4. Student Competitions
  5. Scholarship Auditions
