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 pit orchestras for Jekyll and Hyde: The Musical and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels while living in New York City. I currently perform as the principal horn for the city of Thornton's community band and am continuing my journey in 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.
After moving to Colorado, I have been busy teaching as a substitute teacher for Mapleton Public Schools and Adams 12 Five Star Schools. In March 2013, I was offered the chance to work with Mapleton's intermediate and advanced bands, specifically working with wind instruments. In October 2013, I was offered to assist the entire Band Department at Mapleton Public Schools by offering help to many of the young musicians there as an interim director for the high school ensemble.
My lessons offer every student a unique opportunity to have fun while also challenging them based on how much time they can commit to practice each week. I respond to the needs and the likes of each student and try to play towards those things. If I catch you with a shirt from, let's say, 'The Legend of Zelda,' I may just surprise you with a suitable arrangement of the themes just for your level!
I enjoy helping other people, especially through music and truly find joy in it. I love spreading that joy to others and hope to inspire my students to strive excellence in both music and beyond.
Thank you so much for stopping by my page. I look forward to meeting with you and creating music together!.
Piano, Music Performance, Music Theory, Trumpet
I've performed and taught in a wide variety of settings. My early professional experiences have included 3 years in the Army Band, several cruise line contracts, and freelance work as a performer and composer. Through these times, I've learned to excel in many styles. I recently graduated from NYU, where I was an adjunct faculty member. Here, I also performed and worked with a wonderful faculty including Kenny Werner, Brian Lynch, Chris Potter, Ralph Alessi, Tony Moreno, and trumpet guru Laurie Frink, who all inspire me as a musician and a teacher. While in New York, I was a faculty member at Douglaston School of Music and Art, where I worked with younger students .
It is my belief that discipline and technique are necessary elements that allow emotion and creativity to thrive. I also recommend a healthy dose of listening to what you love. Through this process, I strive to inspire my students, fellow musicians, and listeners.

My name is Nathan I am a 28 year old husband and father of 2 boys. My wife and I have been teaching music since 2007.
I am an experienced teacher of guitar, drums, and trumpet. My students range from age 6-60.
All lessons will be held at our home studio in Aurora, CO. Our home was built as a recording studio and it's perfect for lessons. Our dedicated, sound-proofed, teaching room includes a large viewing window so the student can be seen by parents while they wait without causing unnecessary distractions for the student. No drop-offs, please.
My teaching methods are based 100% on the student's abilities.
Here is a brief look at what lessons with Nathan B. will look like.
Beginning players- I prefer to teach from the Hal Leonard book series. This is a great start for most students. I teach the string-by-string approach using simple songs to start. Your first lesson will be a combination of reading notes on a page and reading chords on a chord chart. You will come out of the lesson learning at least 3 notes and one chord. Weekly goals are set and a practice routine is discussed.
Intermediate players- After a quick assessment of your abilities we will discuss your future goals as a player. We could pursue classical guitar with additional lessons in note reading and fingering methods, or we could focus more on chords and strum patterns if you prefer to sing and play your favorite artists.
Advanced players- this is where it gets fun. We go where you want to go. I will provide guidance based on your strengths and weaknesses. We will choose music that can display your strengths, and challenge your weaknesses. Remember, there's always someone better than you!
Beginning players- All of my lessons follow my own, proven teaching method. All lessons take place with the student at the drum kit playing 90% of the time. I approach all drum lessons beat-by-beat always with a metronome. My goal for the first lesson is to teach at least one basic pattern. We progress through a series of hundreds of different drum patterns that become increasingly more difficult. Every week is a new opportunity to practice clean technique and improve internal timing.
Intermediate players- After a brief assessment of your abilities we will begin discussing concepts of pattern construction. You will start coming up with of your own patterns and ideas. I will provide guidance for more complex fills and I will give tips to help you figure out the right groove for the right song. Every week is a new opportunity to add another tool to your kit.
Advanced players- come and teach ME something! I'm still working on super triplets and sextuplets in 5/4 time :-)
I also teach trumpet at beginner and intermediate levels. I have prepared many students for tryout pieces (solo, regionals, chair placement, etc). I also am experienced in tone improvement, endurance studies, range extension, and accuracy improvement. I use many different method books, but I prefer Arbans and Clarks.
Parents, your child's music education should be fun! I will motivate them with goals, rewards, and frequent recitals so they can display their new skills. I teach my own children so I know what it takes to combine learning with fun. If it's not fun, they won't learn!
Adult students, I will bring you as much as you bring me. I am very results-focused. Your own progress and growth should provide all of the motivation you need.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
