Ricardo P.

Broomfield, CO

I am a classically trained pianist (I studied piano performance at SUNY at Buffalo) and I've made a living all my life playing Blues, Rock, Jazz, Salsa and many other styles. With this background I am able to teach with many different approaches depending what the student is interested in pursuing and what approach fits the student best.

About Ricardo

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 tailo
r 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.

Ricardo is very talented, knowledgeable and an excellent instructor. My son was 5 years old when we started with him. My son is now playing the piano well and really enjoys his lesson. I would definitely recommend him.

Ricardo is the BEST, he is very talented, he got the ears to hear small detailed nuances of a song's tone, he can catch any small mistake in a music play. Best musician I have ever met. He is an expert as well as teaches piano (classical and contemporary), keyboard, guitar (acoustic, electric and bass), voice, song writing, and band assembly. He is every creative and most importantly, he knows how to teach. Should listen to his CD, its amazing!!! He played almost all of the instruments. Highly recommended.

Adriane L.

Denver, CO

I teach beginning piano students sing the Alfred Method.

About Adriane

For as long as I can remember, music has played a large part in my life. By the age ten, I already knew that music would be more than just a hobby for me, it would become my career. I have been singing for over 20 years, and began playing piano when I was eight years old. I received a BS in music industry studies with an emphasis on business, from the University of Colorado Denver in 2008. I have extensive experience in performance and the music industry as a business, and have had the pleasure of experiencing the local music scene first hand while playing in bands. My years of experience enab
les my students to learn different aspects of music from the fundamentals, to writing, and even the music industry as a business. Students should expect to quickly grasp the basic skills such as proper breathing and posture, and will start singing or playing right away. I truly enjoy sharing my love of music and the industry with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music lessons should be fun but educational. I want to know what your goals are and what you would like to get out of your lessons. Each lesson will be tailored to your specific goals and situation, so that you can get the most out of our time together. Whether music is a hobby, a career path, or something in between, you can expect to learn what interests you most. We can focus strictly on your instrument, or even go beyond and talk about song writing, or the music industry.

*** Specialties ***

Ben A.

Louisville, CO

I think piano is an awesome instrument for any musician to learn. I started putting time in about 2 years ago and I've found it to be a versatile, intuitive instrument with a great sound. My teaching style is about building a lesson plan based on what the student wants to achieve, and many of them have gone on to love to play and learn about music.

About Ben

My name is Ben and I am a guitarist with a piano habit on the side. I've been playing music for 10 years now, and I have been teaching for 3 years. I have played in bands since middle school and have performed on stages such as the fox and the creek fest battle of the bands. My teaching style is all about what the student is interested in achieving, and I have received consistently positive feedback from my students.

I had a great experience with Ben teaching me the very beginnings of basic guitar. I'm a mom from Lafayette, CO who plays piano and wants to pick up just the basics of guitar. Ben was very patient with me and also flexible about his approach. He knew right away how to teach me the basics. He is a creative soul and fantastic player himself which is inspiring to be around. I learned more in a few lessons about theory (which I love and asked for) and some basic playing than I expected. I know he can teach all the way to more advanced playing for those who would want it!

How Often Should You Tune a Piano?
Just as you go to the doctor for check-ups from time to time, your piano needs maintenance and care throughout its life. You may notice, especially if you have a keen ear or a tendency to sing along with your practice, that your piano drops in pitch, particularly during the summer and winter months. This is because your piano is mostly made of wood, and your wooden soundboard will contract when the weather is drier -- or the heating is on! -- and cause the pitch of the strings to drop. While kn
How to Improve Sight Reading Skills on the Piano
If you really want to advance your piano playing, mastering the art of sight reading can take you far. But if you're struggling, don't worry.

In fact, there are basic things you can do every day that will improve your dexterity and translate to your piano skills. Try t

How to Teach Piano to Kids: 12 Ways to Support Your Little Mozart

If you ask an adult if they took piano lessons as a child, many will say yes.  The
