SALT LAKE CITY – Learning from the faculty and students at Juilliard may have seemed an impossibility to most, but courses designed by the school are now being offered to Utah students at no cost, through Utah Connections Academy.

Students in grades three through five will learn fundamental musicianship skills in Discovering Music.
Exploring Music, the course for students in grades six through eight, will teach music appreciation and skills in listening, notation, analysis, performance and improvisation.
