HPU’s Dr. Elizabeth Wallace publishes article in professional piano magazine

Elizabeth Wallace 2017BROWNWOOD – September 21, 2017 – Howard Payne University’s Dr. Elizabeth Wallace, chair of the Department of Music and tenured professor of music, recently had an article titled “Reflections of a Guild Adjudicator” published in “Piano Guild Notes.”

Dr. Wallace’s article is one of three features in the summer 2017 edition of the magazine, which is the official publication of the American College of Musicians and its teacher division, the National Guild of Piano Teachers. It has a circulation of more than 10,000.

“Dr. Wallace has built an impressive career through compassionately demanding excellence of herself and her students in the studio and the classroom and on the performance stage,” said Dr. Richard Fiese, dean of the School of Music and Fine Arts. “She has increasingly been involved with sharing her expertise through publication, and her efforts in this area provide a model and an encouragement for HPU students. Dr. Wallace is to be commended for her ongoing achievements.”

Dr. Wallace attributes her success, in part, to Dr. Fiese and the School of Music and Fine Arts.

“Dr. Fiese has encouraged me to submit my writing for consideration in professional publications many times,” said Dr. Wallace. “I have thought about writing for submission for years but it is his support that has given me the courage to take action.”

This is the second article Dr. Wallace has had published in recent years. Both were personal reflections on the importance of organizations such as the American College of Musicians and the National Guild of Piano Teachers.
