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.
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.
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.
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.
