Ricardo P. Broomfield, CO

I teach all popular music styles including Blues, Rock, Jazz, Country, Bluegrass, Latin American Styles. I can teach you to read by notes and/or by chords based on your preferences and styles you choose to pursue. I like to give a solid foundation to all beginners learning to read music and basic music theory and as they progress I will concentrate more on elements that are more important for the style you prefer. I am flexible in my approach as I know the most important ingredient for a student's success in music is for the student to be motivated to play more by enjoying the lesson and the practice time. I'll work with you to make it learning fun!

About Ricardo

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, ...

Scott M. Denver, CO

Hello,
My name is Scott and I am a musician. I specialize in many styles of guitar playing such as: acoustic, blue grass, reggae, blues, finger style, jam, rock, and instrumental.
My goal is to help students better understand their instrument and how to play it.
I teach techniques and music theory to help them better understand the language of music.
Your instrument can be your voice. My job is to teach students to build their musical vocabulary and skills so they can better express themselves musically.

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!

Evan K. Arvada, CO

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 strengths

John T. Westminster, CO

You, the student, are always the most important part of the lesson. Whatever you wish to get out of playing is what I want to help you achieve. The lessons I teach are always about what your goals and interests are. Here is a quick overview of what will/can be covered:

Basics such as how to hold your guitar and a pick, or how to play finger style if that's what you're interested in. How to properly fret a note, how to do hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, finger-tapping, and sweep picking.
Scales, chords, the names of strings, the names of your notes, how and why certain scales and chords go together, rhythm, strumming, chord theory, etc. Any time you wish to learn a song you enjoy we will cover that as well.

The most important thing to me in giving you lessons is that you are enjoying the time learning the instrument.

About John

You, the student, are always the priority in my lessons. Every student receives material specifically designed to fit their interests, needs, skill level, and pace. We are all different, and learn in different ways. You deserve a lesson plan that is built just for you. John T.studied with a private guitar instructor, and bass instructor. Two times he broke the Guinness Record for Fastest Guitar Player. John T.'s school, Dr. Hot Licks' School of Rock and Metal has been awarded the title of "Best in Instrumental Music Instruction" two years in a row by the Westminster Award Program. Volkswagen hired T. to take part in an internet ad campaign called "Fast Vs. Fast." Currently, John T.plays in three bands here in Denver. Rock and metal are what John grew up on. This music is his ...

I have been taking bass lessons here for while and I would recommend to anyone who is interested in playing Rock and Metal music. Both John and Brent are fantastic teachers who have a lot of talent and a lot of knowledge to share. Both are willing to teach not only theory but any song that the student wants to learn. They show that they care about whether or not students learn. I have never seen two people more passionate about music. I wouldn't recommend going anywhere else.

I have been taking lessons here for over a year and find Dr. John to be extremely knowledgeable, reliable/professional (has never been late or asked me to reschedule), and fun. I did not have much experience coming in; the process for me has been that Dr. J creates multiple lessons (usu. 4-12 measures long before repeats) on the spot that we go over to reinforce a skill or technique that I need to work on, or we work on a rock song that I pick out. This approach is very tailored to my questions, trouble spots, and schedule.

John Taylor

John Dr. Hot Licks Taylor has proven to be a great instructor for me. I had developed some bad habits from poor instruction in the past, and John showed me how to correct them, and as a result, my playing has improved. I would recommend John Taylor to anyone looking for a great and knowledgeable guitar teacher.
Josh M. Denver, CO

I have had a lot of success working with beginners up to advanced levels and met so many great people as a guitar teacher. I starting teaching professionally in 2002. I've worked with kids and adults in one on one lessons in my studios, in students homes, schools and lessons with music stores. I am a professional musician. I lived and worked in NYC from 1998-2013 where I recorded with many great musicians and had the opportunity to be around music legends.

About Josh

Nothing beats having someone that has been along the road a little longer to help you along your way. My focus is to help you achieve your goals on the guitar. I offer examples, songs and techniques to practice that will help you to immediately begin seeing positive results. Learn what you are interested in: Rock, blues, jazz, your favorite songs, beginner to advanced studies of rhythm, technique, chords, soloing, composition, theory, practicing, etc. I believe that anyone can play the guitar well and take their next step in music. It makes a big difference if you have someone to help you learn. Most people that have attained an ability on the guitar had someone that took the time to show them what was important to work on. Much of what is thought of as difficult to play or ...
