Johanna N. Denver, CO

I begin with a basic overview of theory and address it to the student's interests and instrument if applicable. I use interactive worksheets and lesson plans to help students learn materials.

About Johanna

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.

Johanna is awesome!!

I gave her a general idea of what I wanted and so far her instruction has helped greatly. After only two lessons I am more comfortable singing, and I am starting to expand my range.She also likes to have fun during her lessons. She is always pleasant and upbeat, and her criticism is always fair and positive. She honestly wants you to succeed in your goals and it comes through in her teaching.

Music Theory allows you to better understand how music is built, and gives you a better sense of what you are actually playing.

About TJ

Born in Rapid City, South Dakota, I started taking piano lessons at the age of 6. Since that time, my love for music has grown with each passing day.

I graduated from The Entertainment Career Connection in 2010 with a certification in Audio Engineering and Production. There I studied audio mixing, recording, production and mastering. I currently study music performance and non profit administration at Denver Metropolitan University.

I am very active in the community working with my non profit, Wealth In Community Knowledge. In addition, I keep myself busy musically playing in my bands, Sleeping Giants, and The Free Electric Band.

I continue to follow my life-long passion for music by educating others. I believe that music lessons should be a fun and rewarding experience, and ...

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!!

We will discuss different modes (scales), how to properly read music, circle of fifths, and chord/ scale relationships. You will be able to talk about music to other musicians in a matter of no time.

About Steve

When I was growing up I thought music was like magic and that only special people with super-human powers could play. I would think to myself, "How are they doing that? I would never be able to play music in a million years!" It wasn't until I was 14 I discovered guitar magazines and a method of reading called guitar tablature that I realized anybody can learn guitar! With determination, patience, and practice I learned as many songs and techniques from my heroes (The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin) as I could. I realized there is so much to learn about music that I could learn something new everyday. This still holds true to this day. I keep digging to find that magic place to which music can take you. It is my goal as a musician and a teacher to help other aspiring ...

Steve has been great so far. His skills are up-to-snuff and his manner is perfect for a young child with a wild imagination. But more importantly, Steve communicates very well and is on time. This may seem like small stuff but it's uncommon in the private music instruction realm.

Great Teacher!

Steve has been a great piano teacher. He has an easy going personality and is very calm and relaxed. He assessed what I knew immediately and where I needed work and designed his style around my needs. He has given me self confidence and showed me how to make piano playing fun!

About Joshua

I want to share my passion and knowledge of music with you!

I've been involved with music for as long as I can remember, and was classically trained in guitar, piano, and trombone.

I've taught private lessons since 2003, and have worked in performance ensembles, recording studios, bands, and other assorted musical areas throughout that time.

My teaching experience comes from summer camps, private in-home lessons, workshops, and online curriculum.

Joshua has been a great instructor for my daughters 15 and 13 yrs. old. At this age it can be tricky to build trust and feel comfortable with an instructor. They have been playing and singing since January and I love hearing them laugh together and am enjoying seeing the progress. I feel very fortunate to have found an enthusiastic instructor for my girls. And the greatest thing is that they are practicing together! Love it!

I have experience with classical and jazz theory. I use theory daily to help me construct chords, compose, improvise, and to analyze songs and solos from musical greats. Music theory can help you connect the dots (literally on the page) and on your chosen instrument.

My son started taking lessons with Travis in March. Travis has cultivated a love of not just the guitar but also for music in him. He is learning how to read music and can sit down and open his music book and start teaching himself a new song. Instead of having his own agenda at lessons, Travis has helped Ethan figure out what interests him and weaves his lesson around that. Travis has taught him that there are multiple aspects to a song and will play the chords while Ethan plays the rhythm or vice versa. This has allowed Ethan to appreciate the complexity of what makes music what it is. We also love that Travis plays for Ethan and shows him different types of music such as surf rock and country and how he can use the same instrument to make different sounds. Travis is incredibly patient with my son. We have really enjoyed having Travis as a teacher.
