Compliment Cards: A New Piano Recital Tradition

Recitals last weekend were SO much fun! We had almost 70 students perform, as well as several of our piano teachers. We heard lots of amazing performances – but today we want to share something we did a little differently this time around: compliment cards! We got this idea from a fellow teacher (click here to read her original post) and had so much fun with it. The idea is for each students and parent to write a quick note or two to other performers at the recital sharing what they liked about their piece or performance. We had each student write to the person who played before them;...

Piano Lessons Facilitate Family Musical Experiences

If you are familiar with the story of how Utah Piano Conservatory came to be, you will know that one motivating factor behind the conservatory is “Facilitating Positive Musical Experiences for Families”.  Our director and her family have chosen music lessons as the tool to help their family develop talents and important qualities. Piano families at Utah Piano Conservatory are encouraged to do the same. We have seen, especially recently, that our conservatory families are creating positive musical experiences by performing together! At our most recent recitals, both last Saturday,...

November Piano Recitals

We host four piano recitals per year at Utah Piano Conservatory: February, May, July, and November. Piano teachers work with and encourage students to prepare memorized, polished solos for recital performance. Performance in recitals is by nomination from piano teachers for students who are performance ready. This includes preparation in performance etiquette (entrance, introduction, performance, bow & exit) and a fully memorized piece.  All students play from memory at formal recitals. We are pleased to have our November formal piano recitals tomorrow, November 4th at 10:30 a.m., 1:00...

Yearly Orientation for Parents of Piano Students – Tomorrow!

Here at UPC, we know that our piano students do their best work when they’re supported by great piano parents. We like to think of piano lessons as a triangle: When all three are working together, the sky’s the limit! But as a parent, whether you play the piano or not, it can be hard to know exactly how to help your child best. You may have questions such as: What should my child’s practicing look like at home? How much is my child expected to practice? What is my role in my child’s practice? What kinds of things is my child learning at piano lessons? How can I keep...

A Parent’s Place in Piano Lessons

On September 14th, we are hosting our annual parent involvement meeting! At Utah Piano Conservatory, parent involvement is crucial. “Parents are encouraged to be active participants in their student(s)’ progress” (UPC 2017-2018 Handbook, pg. 4). We are very excited to gather parents of our students together in this meeting, and look forward to seeing all of our piano parents there! “Parents are also required to attend the yearly conservatory parent meeting . . . . in preparation for a new academic year”. As part of this meeting, “parents agree to ensure...
