Introduction: Please note: I am located in Cottonwood Heights for lessons. Welcome! I hold Master of Music and Bachelor of Music degrees in piano performance from Brigham Young University, and a piano performance ARCT diploma from the Royal Conservatory of Music. Please read on to learn more about the services I offer. You can also check out my website at madeleinemontgomerypiano.com. Studio: I teach dedicated students of all ages and levels, and am passionate about helping them develop a love for the instrument and become well-rounded musicians. Together, we will work on performance repertoire, technique, sight reading, ear training, music theory, and other musicianship skills. I work to provide ample performance opportunities, and encourage participation in festivals, performances, and/or music exams. I also offer music theory tutoring for any music student who needs extra help or wants to supplement their regular lessons. Performing: I perform light classical music - and other covers/styles as requested in advance - for weddings, receptions, luncheons, and corporate events. I will work with you carefully to decide on a set list that will create the perfect elegant mood for your event. Collaborating: I have lots of experience rehearsing and performing with instrumentalists, vocalists, choirs, and chamber groups. I would love to work with you to prepare for your upcoming performance or project. Detailed bio: Madeleine Montgomery holds Master of Music and Bachelor of Music degrees in piano performance from Brigham Young University, and a piano performance ARCT diploma from the Royal Conservatory of Music. Her teachers have included Dr. Scott Holden, Dr. Jeffrey Shumway, Dr. Irene Peery-Fox, Linda Kundert, and Janice Waite. She loves teaching, and her students participate regularly in local festivals and Royal Conservatory exams. Madeleine is an active member of the Music Teachers National Association, and has adjudicated for Art City Academy’s Sonatina Festival. In addition to her experience as a private teacher, Madeleine worked as a graduate teaching assistant during her time at BYU, teaching undergraduate aural skills, group piano, and private lessons. Madeleine enjoys both solo and collaborative work. She was a winner in the BYU Senior Concerto Competition in 2019, earning a performance with the BYU Philharmonic Orchestra the same year. Madeleine has also placed first in the Great Composer Series Online Bach competition, and enjoys competing in other local and state competitions. Madeleine loves new music, and has had the opportunity to premiere the piano quintet Recreational Math by local composer Bradley Korth. She was recently the recipient of the BYU Minerva Teichert Prize for Creative Work for her performance of Kelly-Marie Murphy’s Star Burning Blue and an accompanying written piece. Madeleine’s writing on Murphy’s work will soon be published in an issue of the AWE: A Woman’s Experience journal. As a collaborator, Madeleine has had the opportunity to work with chamber groups, vocalists, choirs, and many instrumentalists. She has also played for the BYU voice department’s language labs.

Madeleine gives a complete piano education: Technique and musicianship. She is knowledgeable and skilled. We always run out of time because there is so much to do in her lessons!! My kids always leave inspired to work hard and enjoy the music they are learning. She is pleasant and kind, while still requiring accountability. I highly recommend her as a piano teacher!!

Madeleine is one of the most intuitive teachers I have ever seen. She is highly creative and is always in tune with the unique and individual needs of each student. She lays concepts out in a clear and layered manner so that by the end of a lesson the student feels like they figured it out by the end of the lesson. She is great for all ages and all levels of playing!

Madeleine taught piano to our three oldest boys of all different levels! She did an excellent job with each of them! They all made incredible progress! She is incredibly skilled at playing herself and an excellent teacher! She was always on time and very professional! We will really miss her as she has moved!
