Description

Biography:

I began teaching piano professionally 1986 shortly after discovering the Utah Music Teachers Association (UMTA). I am a member of three local chapters and have served in these chapters in a variety of positions, including the following: Membership Chair, Teacher Referrals Chair, Webmaster, Recital and Ensemble Chair, Recital Committee member, Secretary and Past-President of the Sandy Chapter of the Utah Music Teachers Association. I currently serve as the State Historian for the UMTA and as Festivals Chairman for the "Sandy A" Area of the Utah Federation of Music Clubs (UFMC) affiliated with the National Federation of Music Clubs (NFMC). I have presented workshops for the Sandy Chapter, Jordan River Chapter and Salt Lake Music Associations on motivational ideas and appropriate summertime games for teachers, sharing my favorite books to further piano teacher education. Other service has included a teacher panel discussing technique, theory, pedagogy, and recitals. I offer a vital mentoring program for high school and college students to current music students. Several of my students have pursued professional pedagogical studies, joined professional music organizations, and are now successfully teaching students of their own. As part of these local music teachers associations, my students and I have participated over the last 25 years in monster concerts, ensemble recitals and benefit events. Through the Sandy UMTA, I organized and participated in large-scale benefit programs in local malls involving six to eight pianos for benefiting cystic fibrosis, leukemia and muscular dystrophy. My music students raised significant funding for these causes through their music. In 2000 we received a grant from the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) for our community effort. I enjoy judging music competitions for our local community school district for the Reflections Contest. I also volunteer in local schools teaching music theory, and offer my services at high school music events during the year. Visit my website at www.mariespianostudio.com
