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 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, ...

His passion for music shines through and I am very happy to have him as my teacher. I feel like I have made very good improvement with my lessons.
Ronald G. Aurora, CO

Coming from a musical family I started piano at a young age. Continuing my studies in college, I was blessed with some fine instruction in both performance and the art of teaching both adults and students. Piano/Keyboard puts into practice all that is leaned in classroom. I strive to make all music encounters and lessons as enjoyable and enriching as possible, with a special emphasis on what the student is enjoying and wanting to learn.

About Ronald

Coming form a musical family, I cannot remember when music was not a part of my life. Both my parents were musicians, my father an instrumentalist and arranger and my mother a fine pianist. From the age of seven they encouraged and assisted my music education any way they could. Music came first in our family. My school years were spent in band, marching band and jazz band. During my high school years I took over the local elementary band and taught beginning band to the students after the band teacher had left before the school year finished. To pay my way through college I taught piano, organ and band instruments in rural Colorado, even using a horse to get to my students when the roads were closed. During this time I was the house organist at the Alladin Theater in Denver

I started taking voice lessons from Jamie kind of on a whim- I had always wanted to learn to sing but I was nervous and kind of shy about it. Right away Jamie made me feel comfortable. He is very encouraging and gives criticism in a positive way. It is obvious that he really loves music and is knowledgeable about many different genres. I love that he focuses on theory and technique- as a beginner these are the lessons that I was looking for. After five lessons I already hear a big difference in my range and my vocal strength as well as my confidence, and I am sure that as I progress he will continue to challenge me. I highly recommend him.

Jamie is an excellent voice teacher. I have learned a lot in the few months I've been taking lessons with him, and feel a lot more confident in my singing. My range and my knowledge of music have definitely improved. At each lesson you do a vocal warm up, go over music theory concepts, and then work on a song. I would definitely recommend Jamie; you will improve and have fun doing it!

Classical Voice · In studio
Jamie has been my voice teacher for almost three years. I have enjoyed working with him on a variety of different songs and musical styles. He always has fun, sometimes challenging warm-ups for me to do at the beginning of each lesson. During the lesson, he is very good at helping me find better or easier ways to sing certain notes or phrases. He has a good ear and can tell if I'm singing something in an inefficient or incorrect way. When he offers me corrections or suggestions for ways to improve my singing, he does it in a way that is easy to understand and doesn't make me feel incompetent.
I feel that my singing has improved quite a bit during the time I have been working with Jamie. And as my voice improves, so does my confidence. I always look forward to my next lesson to measure my progress and to see what new things I might learn.
Kevin Z. Aurora, CO

Regular lessons are half an hour long. An hour per week is usually required for the student that is studying for competitions or performance. Day times and evenings are available.

Our instruction area is spot on. The bright and large studio provides an exceptional learning environment and contains amplifiers, acoustic, electric and bass guitars. We have the latest technology in keyboards, and the use of drum machines makes the lesson more fun utilizing the feel of being in a band. We are conveniently located just off Hampden Ave. and Tower Rd.

The teaching style is laid back and comfortable. Focus is on teaching students how to teach themselves
The basics: music theory, music reading, chords, chord progressions, melody, harmony, technique etc...

Don't look too hard for a teacher now, you've already found him. So what are you waiting for? Stop reading this and contact TakeLessons already. It's all about having fun with music, so come on over, and let's rock.

About Kevin

If you fall into any of these categories, let me introduce myself... My name is Kevin. I am a very energetic, friendly, understanding and passionate music coach who has worked with students and clientele from many different regions around the world.

This is my grandson's first 3 months with Kevin.Kevin is very laid-back and his cool looks makes my pre-teen grandson want to learn from him, which is important. Sometimes, Kevin's critique is unclear and his verbal follow up instructions don't match his written instructions. All and all, he might be prefect for my grandson, who is also very laid-back. Two laid-back peolple might not be a good combination. It could be that my grandson would learn more from someone who is a little more structured. I thought about trying a different teacher but my grandson seems to like Kevin and he is learning to play, which is the bottom line. So, we will stick with Kevin for now.
Molly M. Denver, CO

I welcome piano students of all ages and levels of experience. I don't have a set curriculum or required method book, as I feel that it's important to tailor lessons to the individual student. I work with my students to learn how to read music and feel it's important to include theory and ear training to have a more complete understanding of how and why we do what we do as we're playing. I specialize in classical music, but am happy to work on music from other genres such as rock, pop, and Broadway, or others. I feel this allows my students to be fully engaged at their lessons when the music we're working on is something that interests them.

About Molly

I have loved music almost all my life. I began my lifelong journey to immerse myself in learning piano at age seven. At thirteen, I added violin lessons as well. By the time I reached high school, I knew that music would be my major in college, and that music would always be a vital part of my life. I played violin with my high school orchestra, including taking part in productions of Fiddler on the Roof and Anything Goes. I also played piano with the orchestra, and performed the first movement of Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A minor in concert. I played the piano for my school’s top show choir as well, performing with the group throughout the Denver area. I was also a member of the Colorado All-State Orchestra. All this time, I continued my private lessons in both piano and violin. ...

I really like working with Molly. I am an older student who is new to the piano. I wanted someone to act like a tutor and help me with whatever I wanted to work on rather than try to push me through a classical program. Molly is always encouraging and constructive. She has also helped me manage my account with TakeLessons when they cancel lessons or overcharge me. I highly recommend her.

Excellent source for finding instructors, great teacher

Take Lessons is a great source for finding instructors that match an individuals learning style as well as a one stop site to find a wide selection of instructors. Molly has been very flexible in the adapting to the way I want to learn and is very patient. She shows me better ways of maneuvering around the keyboard and alternate ways of playing the piece so that it sounds right to my ear. I am sure she is just as good at teaching the classical approach to learning, but as I am older and interested in learning songs and playing for fun Molly understands that at teaches accordingly.
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 enables 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 ...
