About Me

I have been a professional musician and teacher all my adult life. Music is my passion and has always been how I make a living. I teach piano/keyboards, guitar, voice, bass and ukulele. I studied classical piano at SUNY at Buffalo and I initially learned to play guitar and singing on my own. Years later I studied voice and guitar with great professional instructors. I am familiar with different ways of learning music: from very structured and traditional methods (that we use in classical music) to more improvisational and "by ear" approaches as we often do in popular music. This helps me tailor my music teaching specifically to each student based on his/her musical preferences, abilities and learning style. I can teach all styles of music including: Pop, Rock, Blues, Country, Bluegrass, Jazz, many different Latin styles including Salsa, Bolero and Bossa Nova.
I have performed all over the US and toured many countries including Mexico, Canada, Argentina, Uruguay, England and France. I have recorded more than 100 CDs for many artists (as well as my own original music) as a pianist/keyboardist, singer, guitarist and music producer. I have won many awards including most recently the Best Blues Band award as the pianist, guitarist and singer for the Lionel Young Band at the International Blues Challenge (the largest competition of blues bands in the world).
I have taught music through my whole career. Many of my students have gone on to study music as a career and have become successful professional musicians.
I am very comfortable teaching all levels from professional musicians to very beginners at any age.
I currently lead and perform with my group. We perform concerts, private events and some club work. My life as a professional musician has given me a lot of knowledge to share with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
I adjust my approach based on what you want to learn, always with an emphasis on learning as much as possible while making the lessons fun and enjoyable. If you are a beginning piano/keyboard or guitar student I can teach you the basics of how to read music and how to play chords in the first few months and then we can decide whether you are interested in playing written music or more improvisational styles. I use different method books depending on the student and sometimes I use just my teaching materials if you are only interested in improvisational styles like Rock or Blues guitar or piano (for example). If you are a voice student, I teach with a combination of learning songs you like and using a CD/MP3s of vocal exercises that help develop good vocal technique. Whatever your instrument and musical preference you can be sure we'll have fun and you'll be making music from the very start!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Yamaha upright piano and keyboards. I have acoustic and electric guitars, bass and amps. I have Shure Sm-58 mics to teach microphone technique with.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student must have his/her own instrument and metronome (or equivalent) must purchase course book(s) if needed..

*** Specialties ***
I teach different styles depending on the students goals. I can teach a traditional classical style for those interested in classical music and I can teach more practical approaches for popular music such as learning by chords (for instrumental students- not voice obviously) and learning improvisation through scales, arpeggios and music theory.

Lauren F. Parker, CO

Subjects Taught

Acting, Bass Guitar, Dance, Improv Acting, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano, Reading, Shakespearean Acting, Songwriting, Theater Acting, Theatrical Dance, Ukulele

About Me

I have taught music and acting for the past 12 years and I never tire of seeing my students progress and discover their talents! I have performed professionally with choirs, a cappella groups and theatre companies and have written and produced 3 musicals in the community. I believe in learning through creativity and the unique and individual interests of my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in allowing the student to take charge of their own learning. I have developed a program for piano that is geared towards learning the basics and then building on that knowledge by teaching the student to teach themselves. Consequently, I only give students 12 to 15 lessons as they will usually have all the knowledge and skills they need to further their talent. This program is mainly for piano, but I have adapted it to beginning ukulele and bass guitar.
I cater to the students needs and interests, however I do focus quite liberally on theory and furthering my students' creativity. I'm not terribly strict, but I do expect a lot from those I teach.

Evan K. Arvada, CO

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting

About Me

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 strengths and weaknesses. As far as classical music, I am currently composing a series of string trios and quartets among many other chamber music. This greatly expands my perception and knowledge of pure music in general. I have done extensive research on multiple composers and their various techniques and subtle nuances. This sharpens my theory and composition knowledge and allows me to apply it to any genre. I can bestow these techniques upon my students and help them to understand the universality of music theory.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very easy going person with the ability to inspire healthy drive and ambition. I have developed an original theory technique as an expansion to my deep knowledge of traditional theory. By working with me, you will learn good posture and technique in regards to physically playing. I will help you develop an advanced ear for music and to recognize unique genres and style. Once you are comfortable with that process, we will dig deeply into the infinite world of theory and composition. The simplified goal would be getting you ready to play in a band on your chosen instrument or simply composing and enjoying your own music.
