Ricardo P. Broomfield, CO

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Organ, Piano, Singing, Ukulele

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.

Kristopher E. Denver, CO

Subjects Taught

Audition Prep, Classical Piano, Conducting, Ear Training, Euphonium, French Horn, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Saxophone, Trombone, Trumpet, Violin

About Me

I am a Music graduate from Hunter College and a native of New York City, where I was once the music director for the Holy Rosary Theater Group. I have performed in various college ensemble and city groups across New York, New Jersey, and Colorado. I also had wonderful opportunities to perform in professional pit orchestras for Jekyll and Hyde: The Musical and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels while living in New York City. I previously performed as the principal horn for the city of Thornton's community band and am continuing my journey in music education with MSU-Denver!

As an undergraduate at Hunter College I studied horn with Richard Casparie, music composition with Shafer Mahoney, and piano with Gary Hammond as well as piano improvisation with Dr. Geoffrey Burleson. I have studied conducting during an an internship in New York City with Dr. Adam Vidiksis. I have taken classes at Hunter with Dr. Reuben Blundell and at MSU-Denver with Dr. David Kish. As a continuing music education student I am continuing to study horn with Dr. Alexander George.

After moving to Colorado in 2011 I have been substituting for the Mapleton Public Schools District and Adams 12 Five Star Schools. Over the years, I have held several long term subbing positions including:

Middle School Orchestra Director - April-May 2013
High School Band Director - 2013-14 School Year

My lessons offer every student a unique opportunity to have fun while also challenging them based on how much time they can commit to practice each week. I respond to the needs and the likes of each student and try to play towards those things.

I enjoy helping other people, especially through music and truly find joy in it. I love spreading that joy to others and hope to inspire my students to strive excellence in both music and beyond.

Thank you so much for stopping by my page. I look forward to meeting with you and creating music together!.

Best wishes,
Kris

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.
