Tricia Marton, NCTM, began studying piano at age 5 and hasn’t stopped. Along the way, she received a Bachelor and Master of Music in Piano Performance from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and has studied the Dalcroze method during workshops at Carnegie Mellon University. She is adjunct faculty at Lakeland University, UW Green Bay-Sheboygan Campus and maintains a private piano studio. She takes a leadership role with the local Michibago Music Teachers Association (MMTA). Through MMTA she chairs the Young Musical Stars concert, a one-day celebration of 100+ talented youth in Sheboygan County and is involved with MMTA’s awards program which annually grants over $1,000 in awards. In 2011 and 2014 she was voted MMTA’s teacher of the year. She consistently judges for local and state festivals. Before moving to Wisconsin, she spent 10 years at St. Louis’ classical radio station managing their fundraising and educational efforts. The educational programs impacted thousands of students through in school programs, live broadcast concerts and partnerships with area arts organizations. Tricia is thrilled to use her business, performing, and teaching skills to keep music alive and vibrant in the Sheboygan community.
