Kristopher E. Denver, CO

I have been teaching viola since my long-term orchestra position in 2013. I teach through the Suzuki method and enjoy the viola and it's nice dark range. I am thoroughly equipped and excited to guide any student through their first steps on this hidden gem of the orchestra world.

About Kristopher

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

My son has been attending weekly saxophone lessons with Kristopher for about 2 months now, and we couldn't be more pleased. He has helped my son to love playing again, and has been very open to working with my sons learning disability to find the way he learns the best. Mr. Emmanuel re-writes music so it easier for my son to read, and helps him to find music that Nathan is excited to learn. Great music teacher!

Wonderful teacher. Passionate in his teaching and eager for his students to learn. I have never touched a musical instrument in my life before and he's really helped make the learning process fun and easier than one might have imagined. I've enjoyed learning under Kris and highly recommend him to anyone wanting some musical lessons.

Philip F. Littleton, CO

I've been teaching the violin/viola for over 20 years on the elementary, highschool and college levels. My students have been accepted on scholarships at various colleges around the country. As a violist, I find the most challenging elements to be sound production and, if you're a recent violinist, clef reading. I can help you master those areas.

I studied with Dr. Philip F. during my 4 years in college and grew so much as a musician! He's great at pinpointing passages to focus on but encourages the student's strengths and accomplishments as well. I studied a wide variety of repertoire, was supplemented with professional recordings, and had several performance opportunities. I would love to study with Dr. Philip F. again if he lived closer!

Phil is a great teacher with an excellent grasp on technique and a very unique way of engaging students at every level. He has had a very positive influence on our child and has infused an interest for the violin which will last a lifetime.He is always willing to adjust with your schedule.

My 16-year-old daughter has been playing the violin for almost 10 years and has had two teachers prior to Dr. Philip. In the ten months that she has had instruction under Dr. Philip, her ability level, confidence, and technique have greatly improved. I have had the fortune of sitting in on several of her lessons, and am increasingly impressed with the amount of information and teaching that is poured into each lesson. Dr. Philip also takes the time to get to know each of his students....and he designs his curriculum and lessons around each students' individual needs. He has become more than a music teacher to my daughter....he has become a highly valued mentor in her life. In addition to the high level of professionalism and knowledge that he brings to his teaching, he also offers the student encouragement and goes above and beyond in helping the student with performance and audition preparation, anxiety, etc. He is an exceptional teacher, and I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who is interested in furthering their music education!
