Ricardo P.

Broomfield, CO

I teach all popular music styles including Blues, Rock, Jazz, Country, Bluegrass, Latin American Styles. I can teach you to read by notes and/or by chords based on your preferences and styles you choose to pursue. I like to give a solid foundation to all beginners learning to read music and basic music theory and as they progress I will concentrate more on elements that are more important for the style you prefer. I am flexible in my approach as I know the most important ingredient for a student's success in music is for the student to be motivated to play more by enjoying the lesson and the practice time. I'll work with you to make it learning fun!

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.

Both of my sons have been taking lessons with Ricardo for about a month. Ricardo first asked them what they wanted to play and has built their lessons around their interests. This has resulted in more spontaneous practice and enthusiasm. My youngest son asked if he could play a Beatles tune for us that he was working on. Ricardo had adapted it so that he could be successful immediately. He was so excited and he sounded great!

Mary F.

Denver, CO

I teach finger picking and flat picking, along with music theory, in
the genre of your choice.

About Mary

I've been playing piano since I was 6 yrs. old, and guitar and organ since I was 13. I've been able to use music in so many ways, and that is the opportunity I want for my students. From singing in school and church choirs, to accompanying and directing them, I've had a lot of enjoyable experiences. I've had the fun of performing solo and with bands, and have been teaching music for about 25 yrs, both privately and in the schools. My BA is in music education and my Masters is in individual performance. I've taught K-Jr College music classes in general music, chorus, piano, guitar, and theory.
I think my favorite form of teaching is still one-on-one lessons. Working with one student allows me to adjust my teaching to their particular learning style and needs.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm strict enough to make sure that my students make progress and get a strong musical foundation. I'm laid back enough to make sure that they have a good time doing so and can feel that they are setting their own goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Grand Piano, Electric Piano, Guitars at Home
Basic Piano and Organ at Church

*** Travel Equipment ***
Supplemental music books are loaned from time to time.
I expect the student to have an instrument to practice on and lesson books (purchased)

Travis D.

Denver, CO

I offer guitar lessons in classical, jazz, blues, rock, country, and funk guitar styles, however I have many years experience catering to the beginning child and adult guitar student. In beginning lessons we learn basic technique, open position chords, open position scales, basic rhythm, time signatures, and music chosen by the student. With young students (children 5-12) I use the Hal Leonard Method Book 1(or any comparable publication). This book teaches the basics of guitar playing in the open position as well as reading standard music notation and playing music from chord symbols and charts. After completing Book 1 we move on to playing popular songs by artists such as the Beatles, Queen, Johnny Cash, Elton John, and Bob Marley. The students job is to learn both the chords and a single note melody of each song and to perform each part, trading parts with myself. I strive to teach the language of music to students first in order to prepare them for continued guitar instruction, ...

For being a beginner, Travis was very patient while preparing me for playing chord and chop playing. Travis also individualized lesson plans emailing upcoming chords and songs that I can learn, starting out slow and practice to the bluegrass style. I was very skeptical about on line lessons, but has ended up very fun and motivating, and educational with music theories. Travis is also easy to communicate with, returning emails promptly. I very highly recommend Travis to anyone from a beginner to an advanced player.

I had a great experience working with Aaron. He is open to lot of different styles of music, and his first question to me was "what would you like to learn?" He gave me the tools to practice what I had learned, and made use of every minute of hour half-hour lesson. He obviously knows how to play, but he's also an extremely talented teacher. Book this guy while you can afford him, and while he still has time available!!
