Scott Watkins: SHOUT-OUT!

Junior Piano Performance Major Jackson "Jack" Merrill gave an outstanding Junior Recital Hearing Thursday, February 3, before a committee of demanding faculty. His program included works by Bach, Debussy, and Dello Joio, and was presented with style, expressiveness, and versatility. Bravo!

Going to be a great Junior Recital, February 13, 7:30pm, Terry Concert Hall.

My senior, Tyler Bechtle, graduated from Jacksonville University on May 4. Of all the students I have had the honor of teaching, Tyler improved the most, the fastest. He was an inspirational leader amoung all our students and his presence will be missed. We wish all the best for Tyler!

2012 Harvey Scholl Prize in Piano

Posted on April 9, 2012
The Harvey Scholl Prize in Piano was established in 2007 to recognize the artistry and dedicated teaching and service of Dr. Harvey Scholl, Professor of Piano at Jacksonville University in the 1960s and 1970s. Dr. Scholl was a beloved mentor and leader - and he worked hard to bring out the best in his students, always.

The Harvey Scholl Prize is intended to honor that student who has exhibited outstand progress during the academic year, and to honor that student's leadership qualities, and dedication to the art of playing the piano.

We don't get to define our awards during the JU College of Fine Arts Convocation like we used to do - but I wanted this year's recipient to know about Dr. Scholl and to know why he won his much-deserved award.

The 2012 Harvey Scholl Prize in Piano is awarded to Music Education Major, John Shannon, from Watertown, Connecticut.

Congratulations, John! You are going to inspire many young people with your love of music! Music's future couldn't be in more [...]
