He will perform “French Suite No. 5” in F Major by Johann Sebastian Bach, “Ballade No. 2” in F Major by Frederic Chopin and “Piano Sonata No. 30” by Ludwig van Beethoven.

Mayfield received his Master of Music in Piano Performance from the University of Tennessee in May 2011 where he studied with David Northington and also taught class piano and applied piano. While there, he received training in both the Suzuki Method and traditional methods of teaching under Fay Adams.

He earned a Bachelor of Arts in Piano at Lee University. Also, he performed in master classes with Adam Golka, Juyong Kang, Ning An, and Gloria Chien. For the past year, Mr. Mayfield took time to serve as a VISTA Volunteer, helping his community to combat high rates of poverty. During this time, he not only gave performances with a local community group known as the Plateau Player, but also crafting a concert series to bring classical performances to a rural area of Tennessee.

The recital is open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.  For more information contact tcteague@northeaststate.edu.
