Accompanists

Many times musicians are needed for a variety of performances. Often, they are needed out-of-town, and having a list of resources is very beneficial. Although this is not a comprehensive list, all musicians included here are current members of UMTA. If you would like to be listed, please contact Patrice Hunt at huntent@gmail.com.

I live in Taylorsville, but don’t mind traveling to accompany. I graduated from Utah State University with BA in Music emphasizing Piano Pedagogy. I am currently teaching piano and love accompanying all types of musicians. I have traveled to many different counties to accompany. I enjoy collaborating with large ensembles and soloists, whether instrumentalists or vocalists. I have experience working in recording studios as well as live performances.
