A master class is an excellent opportunity for a pianist to grow musically and professionally. Because each turn is much shorter than an actual lesson or coaching and because the master must explain everything to an audience that may know little about piano, they'll focus on only one or two very specific aspects of each performance. That way, everyone learns: the pianist receives a valuable nugget of information that they can later apply to the rest of their repertoire, and the audience experiences how the master's advice improved their performance.
A student will definitely benefit from playing on master classes: there's incredible leverage and support created by the situation. Not only the student is face to face with a prominent expert, but there is a whole audience rooting for him/her to succeed. So if you can handle it, a master class creates conditions where breakthroughs are likely to happen, and when they do it's exciting for everyone - the pianist, the audience, and of course the teacher.
