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 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, ...

Outstanding instructor of guitar. He goes above and beyond when it comes to teaching students how to play the guitar. He is very flexible, understanding, knowledgeable, and patient when he delivers his classes. Not only does he teach students how to play the guitar, he also does other things like teaching them how to tune their guitars, how to change keys when necessary to make a song sound better, and how to use a capo when playing the guitar. All of these are above and beyond what most teachers have taught me in the past. I really enjoy taking classes from my instructor.

Julian Y. Boulder, CO

The guitar is a fun instrument to learn because it lends itself to many shortcuts in musical proficiency. Very much unlike the piano, if you learn 1 major scale pattern on the guitar, you can then easily play a major scale in all 12 keys.

About Julian

I graduated with a Music BA from CU Boulder in May 2014. I have played in several different ensembles on a variety of instuments including Bass, Drums, Guitar, Piano, Ukulele and Voice. My classical training in combination with my experience as a song writer, multi-instrumentalist and band leader gives me a uniquely well-rounded teaching style. I aim to teach and inspire students to use music as a platform for learning important skills such as diligent practice, cognitive flexibilty, and creative expression. I grew up in Boulder and Hawaii where I gained a love for island music, Reggae, Highlife Music, Jazz and Funk. I am currently in a band called "Isa and Joe Alan" which plays original music in all these styles. I am also a professional face painter, juggler and balloon twister, and ...

Julian has been wonderful to teach Music Theory as well as Piano. He has interesting methods and uses very solid music theory, to create a larger picture which leads to a full understanding of how piano works, and of the music you play on it.

Lessons are interesting and fun. Also I find them very well-rounded. Julian is a positive instructor and I find him very respectful and simply fun to learn from.

I highly recommend Julian Y.

It's difficult to find an instructor and I feel extremely lucky that I ended up studying with Julian. I was a beginning piano player but very interested in a strong music theory base for my studies. Julian has an extremely deep knowledge of music theory and application across many styles. We have probably spent as much time on theory as on playing (my choice/naturally where our lessons have gone). He is also an excellent guitar player and i have paired relearning guitar with the piano so our lessons can range widely from piano practice to theory to guitar and back.

I find Julian extremely easy to get a long with, very good at explaining theory and leading me to my own epiphanies and conclusions that have made learning continually exciting. He is a good communicator about lessons times and has been probably more flexible than i deserve in accommodating my schedule.

As we have progressed we are now working on song writing, music notation, jazz/staff notation, working through the REAL BOOK, ear training, etc..

My greatest fear was ending up with a very parochial or didactic instructor. Julian is anything but that. I look forward to my lessons every week and have increased my time with him to twice a week.

My son has been taking drum lessons from Julian for about six months now. Julian is fantastic with him. He seems very knowledgeable and his demeanor is perfect for kids (and adults!). He likes to incorporate other instruments into the lesson as well, since my son can also play piano. He has a nice energy during lessons, keeping a good balance of having fun and learning. He also just led my son in his first group experience, where he played drums while others played guitar and keyboard. Julian was amazing at keeping everyone on task, while having fun at the same time! I would recommend Julian as a music instructor for anyone and everyone. :)
Scott M. Denver, CO

Hello,
My name is Scott and I am a musician. I specialize in many styles of guitar playing such as: acoustic, blue grass, reggae, blues, finger style, jam, rock, and instrumental.
My goal is to help students better understand their instrument and how to play it.
I teach techniques and music theory to help them better understand the language of music.
Your instrument can be your voice. My job is to teach students to build their musical vocabulary and skills so they can better express themselves musically.

About Scott

We learn by teaching. That is why I love to teach, because I love to learn. I have made many great connections while teaching music to people and one of the ways to do that is to work together on a common goal. I started teaching music because during my own studies I have discovered many quick learning strategies that make playing music fun. I teach from my home studio as well as via Skype. Many of my strategies I've discovered on my own. Now I want to share these ideas with you. Scott is a multi-instrumentalist loop master whose music spans a wide range of sounds and genres. With an education in music performance and a reputation for having a good time this laid back musician is no amateur to the music scene. Scott has performed hundreds of shows and numerous festival ...

Scott is an excellent guitar teacher. He makes it fun to learn while gearing the lessons toward the student’s needs. In return, this allows the student to excel in learning the guitar at their own pace. I definitely would recommend Scott as guitar instructor.

wish I had more time for MORE lessons

Scott has been a great teacher, his patience and ability to teach at my pace have been wonderful! I also love that he finds ways to teach music I like.

My only regret is that I don't have more time and money to schedule lessons every week! I hope that changes soon.

I love my Uke, and I love lessons with Scott!

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

Extremely patient

I've loved banjo music for years but never had the courage to learn how to play until recently. I'm a senior citizen with absolutely no musical background. What I like best about Mary is that she's totally patient and encouraging but at the same time pushes me out of my comfort zone so that I learn something new with each lesson. When I struggle with how to do something, she suggests different ways to attack the problem or ways to work around it. In just a few months she's helped me be able to play a song for someone that they can actually recognize, which was the first goal I had set for myself. I look forward to many more goals. I'm so glad to have Mary as my teacher!

Practice more

Mary is an excellent teacher. Having been a teacher for 20 years, I tend to closely observe other teachers. Mary had much more to teach me than I was willing to learn. Playing the guitar is a psycho motor skill and as such it must be practiced diligently to gain the muscle memory necessary to perform the tasks. I didn't do it but Mary kept encouraging me and the more she did, the more I practiced, although I still fall woefully short of 30 minutes every day. Her lessons in music theory, however, are paying dividends since I also play some other instruments.
She is kind, patient, skilled and knows music inside out. I don't think I could have chosen a better teacher. I will start again as soon as I am able. Thanks Mary, job well done!

About Joshua

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. *** Lesson Details *** Lessons are tailored to each student's individual goals, and can be as interdisciplinary as they may like. I am always open to suggestions from both parents and students, so let me know what I can do to make your lessons the best they can be. A typical lesson would include some of the following elements:
