A free workshop for pianists, piano teachers and others who are interested is being offered by the Umatilla-Morrow District of the Oregon Music Teachers Association.

Matt Katz will present “Becoming the Accompanist” Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at the First Presbyterian Church, 201 S.W. Dorion Ave., Pendleton. Pre-registration is not required.

Katz will discuss basic activities that can assist students in becoming an accompanist. The presentation will cover how to quickly learn a song by ear as well as sight-reading an accompanied piece quickly. The workshop includes demonstrations and audience participation.
