Brittney Mattison

Brittney Mattison

Cell Phone:  208.716.5419
Faculty Status:  Bronze

 Brittney Mattison is a junior studying Piano Pedagogy at USU. Her main goals as a teacher are to help students develop a love for their own kind of music, provide a positive learning experience, and give them a well-rounded musical education. Practice requirements will vary based on student's age and ability, and on how much time parents can spend helping them. More parental involvement is expected for younger children.

 
Brittney has been playing since she was very small, and completed the Alfred program by age 11. Afterward, she taught herself for eight years, including composition and arrangement and improvisation, skills she is continuing to pursue in her college career. She enjoys working with children of all ages.
