Goals: Help participants gain greater musical understanding through collaboration, and help participants learn how fun it can be to play the piano with others.

Individual Lessons (Optional):
It is extremely important that each student has his/her parts completely learned before the team classes begin. They may learn their music on their own, with their own private teacher, or may set up private lessons with Tiffany* at [email protected], 213-309-0899.
*Additional Cost for Individual Lessons
Each team will have two lessons: one for the duet, and one for the two-piano piece. Team lessons take place before masterclasses begin.
Each team lesson will be 30 minutes in length, and will take place either Wednesday or Saturday between 9am-noon.
Team Lessons Week 1 (Duet): Wednesday morning June 28th, or Saturday morning July 1st
Team Lessons Week 2 (Two-Piano): Wednesday morning July 12th, or Saturday morning July 15th
Each team will perform in two masterclasses. The first masterclass will be duets, the second will be two-piano pieces.
Each Masterclass will be between 30 minutes and 1 hour in length, and 2-4 teams will be in attendance at a time. Each team will perform and receive instruction for 15 minutes of the allotted time. Masterclasses will take place either Wednesday or Saturday between 9am-noon.
Masterclass 1 (Duet): Wednesday morning July 19th or Saturday morning July 22nd
Masterclass 2 (Two-Piano): Wednesday morning July 26th or Saturday morning July 29th
Dress Rehearsal/Final Rehearsal:
The final rehearsal for all teams will be Wednesday August 2nd between 9am-noon.
Students may wear performance attire if desired.
End of Program Concert:
Each team will perform their duet piece, as well as their two-piano piece in a recital setting.
Thursday August 3rd at 7:00pm in the Concerto Hall at the Utah Piano Conservatory.
Performance attire required.
Teams: Participants may pick their own partners in the case of siblings, or friends. We would recommend that the students are partnered by level for a more pleasant experience. We will pair participants who sign up alone.
Program Attendance: As all participants will be on a “team” it is extremely important that each participant is available to attend all classes. Please specify if participants would like to be scheduled for either Wednesday or Saturday classes on the Evaluation Sheet.
Practice: It is extremely important in a Duo team to come to all classes completely prepared with materials, and music learned. Participants should have their music completely learned and should be able to play their pieces at the same tempo as their partner, so the collaboration can be a smooth as possible.
Additional Team Practice: If teams feel they need more time practicing together, whether on one piano (duet) or two pianos, rehearsal time can be set up at the Utah Piano Conservatory, though no instruction will be given.
Concert/Recital Dress Code: There is no required dress code for attending the camp. We do require modesty and dress as outlined by the standards set forth in the LDS guide “For the Strength of Youth.” However, for the concert, the required dress code is “Performance Attire.”
Memorization: Students will not be required to memorize either of their pieces for the camp concert.
Parent/Private Teacher Observation: Parents and private teachers are encouraged to attend team lessons and masterclasses for free observation.
1-Year Minimum Experience: This program is for students of all ages, but is not for students with less than a year of experience with piano lessons. Again, students will be required to learn their parts of the pieces they will play on their own, or with their private teacher, and be ready for collaboration by their first team lesson.
