Nate L. Denver, CO

About Nate

Born in Boston mass I am a DU educated pianist comfortable in any Jazz, Rock, or Classical setting but find my first love is the bluesy rollicking piano reminiscent of Jerry Lee Lewis, Dr. John, or Ray Charles. You might have seen me around town in my Top 40 group, Jazz trio, Funk band, Gospel choir, Burlesque band, or as accompaniment to any of the extremely talented singers I have worked with. I'm also a composer and songwriter with a sardonic songwriting style compared to Mose Allison and Dave Frishberg.

I attended the University of Denver€™s Lamont School of Music and graduated with a B.M. in Jazz and Commercial Piano. Not only have I studied intensely with local fixture Eric Gunnison, but also with internationally touring artist Gerri Allen and even with jazz legend ...

Nate's Review

Nate is an extremely talented musician and teacher. His method of teaching me chords before reading music enabled me to learn faster. He's very patient and makes learning fun. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

Nate was one of very few instructors willing to teach improvisation. This method implies getting to know the student well, having specific familiarity with the musical landscape that student wishes to engage, and bringing those two worlds closer together. Nate is comfortable in his own skin and his musical talents, and he's also a good communicator, all of which provides a great foundation for success in his teaching methods.

About Nicole

I have been studying violin for 12 years and have had diverse experiences in performing all kinds of music from classical to rock. As of Spring 2013 I completed two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Music and Psychology. During my education i was fortunate enough to study violin with Jerilyn Jorgensen and perform in the Lamont Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Lawrence Golan. I was also able to study violin, music performance, and composition with Carlo Feige, Roberto Andreoni, and Simone Fontenelli in Milan, Italy for 3 months during my junior year. During my undergraduate degree i chose to accompany my music with a psychology degree, focusing on cognition as well as social and child psychology, becauseI knew that such knowledge would allow me to help my students learn better.

Moving forward with an eye on a strong foundation

My daughter has had 2 other teachers. The first thing I noticed was that Nicole paid attention to technique, posture and sound quality. It took a bit, but she helped my daughter relearn some overlooked basics. The immediate difference was amazing. Then the approach Nicole takes in helping students learn to listen to and understand their own playing really increased my daughters motivation to improve. She has improved tremendously and is having fun doing it.

Nicole is an excellent teacher that understands her students and teaches them in a way that is geared toward them individually. She listens and is very patient. While not only encouraging the student, she also challenges them thus opening up creativity and a love for the violin.

Wonderful Teacher!

Our daughter had a previous violin instructor for 3 years and had a great foundation. However, we knew it was time to take her to the next level with technique and note reading. Nicole is very knowledgeable about violin technique, its history, and about music. My daughter has grown tremendously. Her intonation, note reading confidence, and rhythm has greatly improved. She has a new found excitement for her instrument again!

Great teaching approach

My goal was to be able to play songs around a campfire and TJ has been fantastic at tailoring our lessons to this goal. Every week I learn something a little new, but I also learn a song that is simple enough for me to play and which incorporates whatever new chord or technique he's introduced. I much prefer practicing actual songs vs. excercises and he always leaves me with a new song to play. He is also instantly likeable and lessons feel more like hanging out with a friend than a teacher. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.

Fun and inspiring teacher!

If you are looking for a fun, optimistic, and talented teacher TJ is your guy. Every time we get together to make music TJ is full of life and always has a smile on his face. His knowledge about music theory and history is amazing and he can back up that knowledge when he picks up any instrument whether it be guitar, piano, bass, or even mandolin. The great thing about TJ is he inspires you to want to get better at whatever it is you want to get better at. He is patient and understands everyone learns in different ways and at different paces. He can get along with anyone of any age. I highly recommend TJ as your teacher no matter what level you are at.

Fun, ridiculously talented teacher

I've been dabbling with acoustic guitar and was on my church's worship rotation for a few years, and I inherited my Dad's electric guitar and amp a few years ago, but you'd think after 20 years I'd be much better at it. After that long with no formal instruction, and now that I'm a family man having virtually no opportunity to jam with friends, it's difficult to get better. So my wife surprised me with TakeLessons, my first true opportunity to have regular guided instruction on the guitar, and I love it!! Having lessons in the comfort and convenience of my home over Skype is the only way this father of 4 could have this amazing opportunity, and it works incredibly well.

I believe the main reason TakeLessons via Skype works so well for me is because of TJ. He's been my instructor for several months now. He always makes it fun and challenging and balances his lesson plan with asking me what songs I'm personally interested in learning to play. He's crazy good on the guitar...I want to play like him when I grow up ;)

Out in my rural home, my internet isn't always reliable, but TJ is always super patient about it and has on many occasions allowed the lesson to go a few minutes over to make up for the technical difficulties (thankfully, the problem seems to be fixed now and we've been able to keep on schedule). And with my hectic schedule and 4 kids, I don't always get the fun and luxury of investing time practicing guitar, but TJ is always encouraging and supportive.

I honestly feel like TJ's my friend. We get along great! Even though we listen to different artists, we share that passion for music that moves you. I travel to Denver once or twice a year for my job and we've already agreed to meet up whenever I'm there, maybe even go skiing together.

Keep up the fantastic work, TJ! You inspire me every week and I'm stoked to have you as a new friend!!

Great experience so far!

I've certainly enjoyed my beginning guitar lessons with Travis. He takes the time to answer my questions and explain things to I understand the music and the best techniques to use. He is also very encouraging and supportive of my just enjoying the guitar, even with mistakes. So far, I am having a great time!

I started playing drums when I was thirteen. My dad is a piano player, and he taught me about playing music, we still play together any time we get the chance. I also started taking drum lessons around this time.
By high school I was in the concert band, and then the jazz band for the last three years. I played for the All-City Jazz Band in Denver my senior year of high school.
I then went to Adams State College for two years and played in the big band, and percussion ensembles. The big band got the opportunity to go to the University of North Texas Jazz Festival, where I won an outstanding soloist award for a drum solo in one of the songs.
I then went to Berklee College of Music for four years for a performance degree. At Berklee I studied all kinds of styles of ...

Alex is a really dedicated teacher. He tutored me for around 6 months and he taught me amazing rudiments and grooves that I still practice today! He's a very versatile player. Not only did he help me improve my chops, he introduced me to songs by some of the most talented artists in the world. My playing is still very influenced by his technique.
