TCU's College of Fine Arts Spotlight
Jessica Welsh

Jessica Welsh, DMA Piano Pedagogy student, is the 2018 winner of the Clavier Companion Collegiate Essay Contest. Her essay “Between the Lines” will be published in the Nov/Dec 2018 issue.

“[My essay] explores a holistic approach to teaching — one that recognizes and values students as individuals, helps students work through personal and emotional difficulties related to music study and performance, and engages teachers to think through their responses and reactions to student successes and failures.”
