About Me

I've been singing and dancing since I was 3 years old. I won my first songwriting competition in kindergarten. I played clarinet and piano in elementary school and junior high, and also sang in the chorus, In high school I had to choose between band and choir, so I chose choir. I sang solos in all the talent shows and was section leader for my high school advanced choir, and as a senior I was choir president. I was also accepted into G.A.T.E. (Gifted and Talented Education) choir, which was district wide.

I started my college career at Chapman University in Orange, California as a music major, and trained as an opera singer with Lynn Cole-Adcock, a professional opera singer of many years before teaching at Chapman. After a year of hard work mastering vocal technique and music theory I switched to theatre when I caught the Broadway bug. My first production was Hair!, directed by L.A. acting coach and professor Michael Nehring . Soon I had moved on to Shakespeare, in the summers I worked with Shakespeare Orange County, founded and directed by award winning producer Tom Bradac. By my senior year I was directing plays by Megan Terry and Clifford Odets, that year I won Best Director from my theatre department.

A minor in dance was required for theatre majors, I was lucky enough to take classes from Cyrus Parker-Jeanette and several other renowned professional dancers and choreographers. I earned my Theatre and Dance degree from Chapman University in 1998, and moved to New York City where I spent 10 years pursuing a performing arts career, both in theatre and as a singer/songwriter. I found minor professional success as a recording artist and studio musician, and performed in numerous off-off Broadway theatre productions while teaching theatre and dance to children at the Bronx Community Center and also private voice lessons in the recording studio I worked in.
I also did an internship at the famous jazz studio, Nola Recording on 57th Street in Manhattan where I worked with Grammy winning engineer Bill Moss. My off-off Broadway performances were for two grass roots yet successful theatre companies, Stone Soup and Beggars Group.

I just spent a year teaching music to my daughter's preschool class. I have also had 3 of my voice students audition for X Factor and The Voice. I love to pass on what I know and what I've learned to the next generation of artists and performers. My motto is: you only live once, make it count!

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is fun and energetic, lots of positive reinforcement but also high expectations to do your best and be disciplined, especially when it comes to practicing at home. The only way to really learn is to do it! After 3 to 6 months with me, you should be able to perform a song, monologue or dance routine in front of an audience or for an audition, with complete confidence and skills that will blow them away!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons supported with a full weighted keyboard and microphone, and iPad for streaming YouTube karaoke.

*** Specialties ***
I can teach method acting, presentation acting (as in Shakespeare), Broadway musical "belting", opera vocal skills, hip hop dance, jazz dance, beginning ballet dance, folk singing, songwriting skills as in rhyme scheme and phrasing and theme, recording studio basics and proper microphone technique, and public speaking for professionals giving presentations to large audiences.

Cameron C. Littleton, CO

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording

About Me

I have played rock and blues guitar for 30 years. I grew up with the Beatles and Rolling Stones, but now play in the Albert King, Buddy Guy and Eric Clapton blues styles. I know most rock, blues, folk and jazz styles with some knowledge of country and classical.

I have been the rhythm, lead or bass guitar player in six bands spanning 30 years. My current band is West of the Blues.

I was mentored by Mike Bruce. Mike was BB King’s, Bobby Blue Bland’s and Bob Seger’s lead guitar player for many years. He has played with everyone from Eric Clapton to Janet Jackson.

During the Mike Bruce period my band opened for him almost everywhere. He became my mentor and guitar teacher and only then did I start learning how to play the instrument that initially looked easy.

I have taught Rock Band and Guitar in Denver Public Schools for the past four years.

I have taught guitar and bass informally for about 12 years and our Littleton based lesson studio has been in operation for six years with lessons taught more formally.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a “parent’s always welcome” attitude in a well equipped furnished basement studio. I can make recording and CD creation available.

My teaching method guarantees you how to play the guitar, not just songs by memory or tab.

I call my style the Quick Fret board Mastery Teaching Style. Using this you will learn quickly how to play songs and have fun, but will be gaining the fundamentals all along. There are no boring theory classes or repetitive scale sessions, but you will leave each lesson with new knowledge of theory and scales without actually studying them separately. You will instead being playing songs and having fun.

We have a custom workbook that includes CHORDS, SCALES, PROGRESSIONS, CHARTING and ADVANCED THEORY. The workbook outlines the basics, we add to it every week with material customized for you.

We go as fast or as slow as you decide. We give homework, but it is not mandatory.

If you are a student you will shine in your school, group or band. If you are an adult you will be amazed at how fast you learn and how good you will become.

We hope you grow to love music and the guitar as much as I do. ROCK ON!

About Me

Taylor is a sophomore graduating from Red Rocks Community College in Spring 2015 with a History/General Education Associates Degree. He is a prospective student of the University of Northern Colorado, which has one of the best public music conservatories in the nation, with a declared B.M. in Composition. He has plans to attain his Master of Music in Conducting after receiving his Bachelor's.

Taylor has performed with many famous musicians and conductors; notable names include Mark Wood (founder of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Wes Kenney (lead conductor of the Colorado State University Symphony Orchestra), and Randy Sabien (famous jazz violinist). He studied Viola privately at the University of Denver under the instruction of champion fiddler and musical saw player Caroline McCaskey. Taylor currently studies music theory and piano privately with famous Ukrainian pianist and music historian Olga Dashevskaya, looking to expand his musical abilities.

Taylor has won many awards and scholarships with his writing skills and literary knowledge. Along with music, Taylor can teach various subjects including English, History, Theatre, Literature, Astronomy, Public Speaking, and Algebra. Although lessons follow a basic curriculum, the lesson is always about what the student desires to accomplish. For example, music students are ALWAYS allowed to pick their own performance repertoire to work on. Lessons are always focused on encouragement, assistance, and the self-success and determination of the student.

As of today, Taylor has over a quarter million hits on his arrangements and compositions. You can check out his music at: www.soundcloud.com/taylorrusso

"With lessons, *I try to keep it very cheap so that the student can afford the help they need. I believe in helping others when they are in need. Also, if you are outside the state of Colorado, I can do online classes (for MOST subjects; please inquire before purchasing lessons). I will not be able to do any in-home lessons outside 10 miles of Golden, as I have a busy schedule."

*I am willing to negotiate my already low prices occasionally, depending on certain factors; scheduling, type of lessons, etc. Please feel free to email me with any questions: tayloranthonyrusso@gmail.com
