For many children, their first encounter with classical piano music can be a life-changing experience. Increasingly, these introductions are made possible because of The Bachauer’s Music In Our Schools program.
This innovative program has made an impact on thousands of children across Utah by pairing world-class pianists with local schools. These premiere talents perform intimate concerts for the students upon a Steinway grand piano.
After this experience, many children and teenagers walk away with a newly-discovered passion for classical music. They become better listeners, which, in turn, improves their overall academic studies.
Some even decide to formally study piano, filling the world with beautiful music for years to come. We believe that participation in this program has the power to change the lives by showing them what can be achieved through talent, practice, and commitment, and by instilling a desire within them to seek out the elevating effects of beautiful music.
The Music In Our Schools is truly a program unlike any other.
“Bachauer offers our students a front-row seat to the artistry that has been achieved through talent, practice, and commitment.”

“The more exposure our students get, the better listeners they become. It flows over to attention to their academic subjects.”
