My son has been attending weekly saxophone lessons with Kristopher for about 2 months now, and we couldn't be more pleased. He has helped my son to love playing again, and has been very open to working with my sons learning disability to find the way he learns the best. Mr. Emmanuel re-writes music so it easier for my son to read, and helps him to find music that Nathan is excited to learn. Great music teacher!

Wonderful teacher. Passionate in his teaching and eager for his students to learn. I have never touched a musical instrument in my life before and he's really helped make the learning process fun and easier than one might have imagined. I've enjoyed learning under Kris and highly recommend him to anyone wanting some musical lessons.

Outstanding instructor of guitar. He goes above and beyond when it comes to teaching students how to play the guitar. He is very flexible, understanding, knowledgeable, and patient when he delivers his classes. Not only does he teach students how to play the guitar, he also does other things like teaching them how to tune their guitars, how to change keys when necessary to make a song sound better, and how to use a capo when playing the guitar. All of these are above and beyond what most teachers have taught me in the past. I really enjoy taking classes from my instructor.

Scott M. Denver, CO

About Scott

We learn by teaching. That is why I love to teach, because I love to learn. I have made many great connections while teaching music to people and one of the ways to do that is to work together on a common goal. I started teaching music because during my own studies I have discovered many quick learning strategies that make playing music fun. I teach from my home studio as well as via skype. Many of my strategies I've discovered on my own. Now I want to share these ideas with you.

Scott is a multi-instrumentalist loop master whose music spans a wide range of sounds and genres. With an education in music performance and a reputation for having a good time this laid back musician is no amateur to the music scene. Scott has performed hundreds of shows and numerous festival ...

Scott is an excellent guitar teacher. He makes it fun to learn while gearing the lessons toward the student’s needs. In return, this allows the student to excel in learning the guitar at their own pace. I definitely would recommend Scott as guitar instructor.

wish I had more time for MORE lessons

Scott has been a great teacher, his patience and ability to teach at my pace have been wonderful! I also love that he finds ways to teach music I like.

My only regret is that I don't have more time and money to schedule lessons every week! I hope that changes soon.

I love my Uke, and I love lessons with Scott!

About Evan

I have been playing lead guitar since 2004 (bass guitar and drums since 2006) and have invested my life into the creative process. Over the said amount of time, I have been applying my technique to genres such as heavy metal, jazz, blues, funk, classical, and anything in between. I have written over 30 original works which include guitar, bass, drum, and vocal scores. Once the work is completed, I would proceed to creatively construct in a one-on-one or group scenario. I have also been student teacher and guitarist for the Standley Lake High School jazz band. The jazz band at Standley Lake regularly played clinics in which professional jazz musician's would critique the group on a particular set. This would include breaking it down to the single musician's parts and pin pointing ...

My son started taking lessons with Travis in March. Travis has cultivated a love of not just the guitar but also for music in him. He is learning how to read music and can sit down and open his music book and start teaching himself a new song. Instead of having his own agenda at lessons, Travis has helped Ethan figure out what interests him and weaves his lesson around that. Travis has taught him that there are multiple aspects to a song and will play the chords while Ethan plays the rhythm or vice versa. This has allowed Ethan to appreciate the complexity of what makes music what it is. We also love that Travis plays for Ethan and shows him different types of music such as surf rock and country and how he can use the same instrument to make different sounds. Travis is incredibly patient with my son. We have really enjoyed having Travis as a teacher.
