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.

I am a professional singer with many organizations in the Denver area including Opera Colorado, Boulder Opera Company, Cabaret Otaku, Opera on Tap, and others. I am also the Cantor/Choir Director for House for All Sinners and Saints Lutheran Church. I have sung many genres including Jazz, Pop, and in leading roles in Opera and Musical Theater.

I have been teaching private voice for over two years. As an instructor and vocal coach, my job is to help you obtain YOUR goals as a singer. I love to sing and I love to teach people of all ages how to sing!

*** Lesson Details ***
When meeting with new students we first discuss their goals as a singer and musician. Are you preparing for an audition? In need of vocal coaching for a theater role? Do you want to learn how to sing with better control of your voice? Trying to learn to read music and gain a working knowledge of music theory?

As a teacher I strive to focus on what a student's strengths are and help develop them to their full potential!

Kit R. Aurora, CO

About Me

With 2 degrees in music and more than 6 years of teaching experience, I offer piano and voice lessons to any age and any level! I consider the most important aspect of teaching to be creating an environment where a love of music can be discovered and nurtured. Everyone is offered the opportunity to discover and deepen their love of music. I chose to make music my career so that I can guide you on your priceless journey towards becoming a better musician...a better person.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do not use one set curriculum. Instead, I have familiarized myself with a dozen various curriculum, and choose the best fit for each individual student. I am open to using books you already own as supplemental material and encourage students to share their suggestions in selecting music. Every student has different goals, and I tailor the lessons to meet them.
Within the first lesson, we will set short and long term goals and lesson plans will be made to help you achieve them.
I provide accompaniment and melody recordings for vocal students to practice with.
Material will be sent home with you to peruse at your convenience. This will include articles from music dictionaries, archives, journals and more to give you an opportunity to become a well rounded musician.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright piano in living room with waiting area for parents so they may sit in on lessons.
Music stand provided for voice lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Some music may be provided by myself and I am also willing to work with certain books the student may already own. There will be at least one book required for purchase. I expect students to have a pencil and notebook at every lesson.
Water is welcome and encouraged for vocal students.

Parking is available on the street directly outside the studio.

*** Specialties ***
Too often I have seen damage caused to the vocal chords from an instructor's lack of knowledge in developing voices. I am proud to offer voice lessons where I specialize in working with young voices that are still maturing!

I believe in teaching a well rounded curriculum and therefore introduce my students to the styles of all genres.

About Me

I love to teach music and I live to help my students learn about the joys that being a musician can bring. If you are looking for a piano or voice instructor or a theory teacher who is passionate about music and about teaching, then I am that person. I work to help my students achieve the best possible results in his or her lessons while still having fun.

I have a Master's of Education from Regis University and a Bachelor's of Arts in Piano Performance from Western State College. I have taught piano lessons for 12 years and voice lessons for 3 years. I am constantly looking for new ways to incorporate music into my life and into my students' lives and to help maximize everyone's learning experiences.

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a fairly traditional classical approach in the use of literature and materials, but I also prefer to take into account student learning styles and preferences. I understand that everyone learns in different ways and has different interests, so along with using the classical literature, I try to incorporate student interests and learning styles. I do expect students to follow my rules and procedures during lessons and practice times, and these are all common sense, such as be respectful and be on time, etc. I also expect students to practice regularly. I will find a way to make practice time fun and interesting for all of my students. I do expect all of my students to make adequate progress, and within 6 months they will most likely be progressing to either a Primer B or Grade 1. (All students start at Primer A, which is the most basic level, unless they have had prior experience). Otherwise, I expect students with prior experience to progress have a level every 6 months.

Piano lessons focus on using a combination of technique, theory worksheets, and performance/practice songs. This helps students to have a varied approach and it also addresses all aspects of musicality, as well as incorporating multiple learning styles. I prefer for students to begin with the Thompson series and to progress through that series while also working on level appropriate solo pieces.

Voice lessons focus on beginner technique, pronunciation and enunciation, breath technique, and English pieces to start. As students progress, they may work through Italian opera and operetta, German lieder, and other more challenging songs. The foreign series includes work on foreign pronunciation and operatic singing. If a student chooses, they may also focus on a more folk-based approach than the traditional operatic approach.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: piano, sheet music, metronome, pencils.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide some books, or I can purchase books at a discounted price. I can also bring a metronome. I expect the student to have a piano or a full-length keyboard. I sometimes bring pencils, but I expect the student to have one handy to mark their music.

*** Specialties ***
Piano: beg - adv
Voice: beg - inter

I teach piano and voice. For piano I teach classical, jazz, blues, rock, pop, and ragtime. I focus on teaching students how to sightread, memorize, learn theoretical and pedagogical concepts, and learn how to improvise. I can also teach accompaniment.

For voice I teach classical operatic style, Broadway/show tunes, popular, country, jazz, choral, blues, and rock styles. I help students to find comfort with their own voices, learn how to sing in a way that supports their voice, and keeps their voice healthy. I also work with teaching pitch recognition, sight reading, oral recall, and breath technique.

About Me

Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role.
Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.)
I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to continue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production.
Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at the UNT commencement ceremonies. This led to an offer to tour Italy with the Rome Festival Orchestra. For the next two summers I performed in Copenhagen, Istanbul, Rome and Berlin with the Berlin Philharmonic.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students progress VERY quickly! As a teacher, I can easily identify my students’ strengths and weaknesses, and plan an individualized study course. I will instill a solid set of production skills that will easily serve ANY style of music you choose (from rock to opera.)
I will make for you a personalized recording for you to practice with daily. We will also work on songs you LOVE!
My students will have performance opportunities every 3 months. I will prepare you for college entrance auditions, TV contests, and television appearances. My students make extraordinary progress-I want you to become one of them!

About Me

Michelle is active as both a performer and voice instructor. After a recent performance, Opus Colorado raved that “She has an absolutely enormous voice that is full of power and emotion.” As a soloist, Michelle has performed with such professional organizations as the Denver Philharmonic, the Salem Chamber Orchestra, and the Willamette Master Chorus. In November 2012, Michelle sang the role of Die Mütter in Hänsel und Gretel with the Lamont Opera Theatre.

In February 2007, she sang the title role in Puccini’s Suor Angelica. Michelle previously sang the role of The Countess in Act II of Le Nozze di Figaro and performed with the Salem Chamber Orchestra as a winner of the Willamette Solo & Aria Competition in both 2005 and 2006. In March 2006, Michelle sang selections from Songs from Jewish Folk Poetry for a festival honoring the works of Dimitri Shostakovich. In April 2006, her composition Two Sketches for String Quartet was debuted by the Oregon Symphony Quartet. The following month, she performed in Carnegie Hall as a member of the Willamette University Chamber Choir.

First a native of the Philadelphia suburbs and then a long-time resident of the Pacific Northwest, Michelle now resides in the Denver Metro Area.

*** Lesson Details ***
Expectations:

1. Please arrive on time for your lesson. If you are late, I cannot guarantee that the time will be made up.

2. Come prepared! Practice the previous lesson’s assignment, bring assigned materials to your lesson, and complete your journal entries (if applicable).

3. Order new materials as soon as they are assigned. The sooner you have the materials, the sooner we can forge ahead in learning activities! If you are worried about costs, try your local library or a local college/university library.

4. Have fun! Learning to sing is a crazy adventure. I guarantee you will face adversities, but do not let it get you down. Every singer must learn to forge through roadblocks and will ultimately gain a great deal of strength and experience. If you find something to be particularly agonizing, do not hesitate to bring it up at your next lesson, and we will work through it together!

*** Specialties ***
I teach classical singing methods to students of all ages. I specialize in teaching through use of age-appropriate art songs, folk songs, and arias. I also offer beginning students the chance to learn essential musicianship skills like note-reading, terminology, and the basics of rhythm.

Classical singing is demanding and requires both physical and mental maturity. Although each student is different, I believe that most students should not consider private voice lessons before the age of 13. Lessons offered to younger students will teach and reinforce basic musicianship skills, while offering a healthy introduction to vocal singing that does not ask too much of the singer too soon.
