Name: Piano Studio Of Michelle Nielsen. Descripton:I have been teaching piano in the Utah valley area for 6 years now. I have taken lessons for 15 years and have played the piano for 19. I studied classical repertoire from Ruth Barnes and switched to Bridget McBride Johansen. I have studied jazz piano with Ken Foster. I have also been instructed by Professor Ralph VanderBeek at Weber State University. I was accepted into Utah State University's Piano Performance Department. However, due to a change of plans, I did not pursue that major. I am currently a student at Brigham Young University where I have played the keyboard with the renowned Brigham Young University Young Ambassadors Show Band touring to the Southern States and Cuba. I have recently returned from an LDS Mission to Portland, Oregon. I am now majoring in Communications with an Advertising Emphasis and minoring in music. I have owned piano studios in both Salt Lake City, Utah and Boise, Idaho. In both studios I have had up to 25 students. I have also taught at the Art City Music and Dance Academy in Springville, UT. I use a variety of method books in teaching students. For beginners, I use mainly Piano Adventures and Bastian. I include in my teaching, the proper technique forms and encourage students to practice daily. I have taught music and preschool at Challenger School. I enjoy being around children. I teach in a positive way and believe in constructive criticism that will help your child progress. I am currently applying for membership with the Utah Music Teachers Association. Teaching piano is one of my passions and I look forward to working with you.
