About Me

Michelle Hylton is a piano teacher, accompanist, and adjudicator who loves helping people succeed. She has worked with over 100 personalities over the course of nearly four years, a combination of private students and at the former Utah Piano Conservatory. She helps students improve their technique and mindset at the piano while becoming a well-rounded musician.

She obtained an Associates of Science in Music at Snow College in 2016 and is working on a Bachelor’s of Music in Piano Performance at Utah Valley University. Former teachers include Dr. Ran Duan, M.M. Ammon Bratt, M.M. Joanna Oshida, and M.M. Heather Bosshardt. She is currently under the tutelage of Dr. Whitney Pizza. Having taken from a multitude of instructors has given Michelle a wide pallat of teching techniques. Other relevant coursework includes piano pedagogy, teaching music to children, educational psychology; sight singing and ear training, music theory, music history; and more.  Her current research into piano extends also into teaching; she reads educational periodicals in addition to music-specific ones. 

She has played solos in collegiate recitals, accompanied instrumentalists and vocalists, adjudicated at the Northern Utah Valley and Juab piano festivals and is now a member of the Northern Utah Valley Piano Festival Association, Utah Music Teacher's Association, and Music Teacher's National Association. She is listed as a professional piano teacher on multiple online directories.

When she’s not practicing or teaching her awesome students, Michelle enjoys being with friends and family (especially her husband and daughter), going to church, excercise, and cooking.
