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.

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.

Larry F.

Denver, CO

Lessons are personalized for the student and will address any issues that will improve overall musicianship: Tone Improvement, Musicality, Theory, Improvisation, etc.

About Larry

Music has been a huge part of my life, and I couldn't imagine a life without it. I hold a Bachelor of Music in Saxophone Performance and Jazz Guitar and have been exposed to nearly ever form of music imaginable. I began playing saxophone as a child, and picked up guitar shortly after. For the past decade I've played professionally and taught all around the country.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will be designed around each individual player's needs, but ultimately we will address proper technique, scales to chord relationships, rhythmic accuracy, soloing, and how to have enjoy playi
ng your instrument while sounding the best as possible. For classical players will will focus on classical theory, etudes, patterns, and general technique for proper tone. For jazz players we will dive into the world of improvisation, jazz theory, and standard jazz repertoire. I use many different technique books, as well as solo transcription books for solos. I'm generally laid back in my teaching style, but to progress as a musician one must have a certain level of dedication to practicing and commitment, so I do expect my student's to want to get better and practice accordingly.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Downstairs practice room: PA system, soundproof, books, music stands, amps, guitar, alto sax, tenor sax, chairs, additional seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar, Amp, Saxophone, Play a longs, Music stand, and Music Literature

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)

*** Specialties ***
classical guitar and piano, beginner banjo and vocals

I scheduled a lesson with Mary on April 12. She cancelled her first lesson with me on April 19 without any reason why and rescheduled it over an existing appointment. No call on my phone, no email in my inbox. Very disappointing. Very unprofessional. With the variability of my schedule, I can't handle someone willing to cancel that close to a session (I'm a nurse who works 12 hour night shifts).

Michael C.

Arvada, CO

Hi, I'm Michael Chodosh of Chodosh Guitar. I play lead guitar and am the singer/songwriter for the band Cherry Veil.
We will start studying your style of music right away.
Whether you're into rock, blues, jazz, country, classical, flamenco, folk, funk, R&B, all types of world, ethnic and religious or spiritual sounds we will cover how to play those songs that will bring you toward your goal.
On top of that, you can expect scale studies, chord studies and if you like, theory, improvising, composing, arranging, recording and even music business studies. I've been a musician all my life and I'm still studying this stuff myself!
Most of all, we will be helping you to express and develop who you truly are as a musician. Private students who attend classes at the studio also attend group lessons for free! You are in for an adventure!

About Michael

Hi, I'm Michael. I have been a professional guitar player my entire life. I love playing, writing, performing and I love teaching music. I love making it fun for us both but I don't stop there. I have systems I use to bring the best out of my students. I think everyone is happier when they reach their own potential while staying in their heart. My job is to help you do that on guitar! With your playing, whether that's just some strumming and reading or if you want to play standards like a pro or even shred like a monster. I can help guide you there and inspire you to reach those goals t
hat you presently might not even realize you can achieve!

Thank you for looking into lessons with me. You've either started or you're about to improve a wonderful relationship with music! - Michael.

Music Theory · In studio
I started taking lessons with Michal Chodosh to learn music theory and reading music. In the time I have worked with Michael, I have learned a lot. When I began lessons, I didn't know scales or modes, knew only basic chords and wasn't able to read sheet music. In addition to that, I was barely able to follow tablature. Michael has taught me about all of those items and more. Lessons with Michael are a lot of fun. There is always great interaction between students so that newer students can learn from both Michael and from other students while becoming comfortable with learning about the guitar. Deciding to take lessons from Michael was a great decision. I've thoroughly enjoyed learning how to play the guitar.

My introduction to Michael came when he sat in with a band I was playing with....I was so blown away by his playing, I ended up taking lessons from him.

Micheal has helped open up new frontiers in playing and theory for me without ever making me feel like a dummy for not knowing things. One of the best things about him is that his teaching style makes students feel comfortable, but also challenged.

Michael has the experience, patience, and knowledge to help everybody from beginners to working professionals learn and improve. Heck, he even taught me to sing my first legitimate vocal harmony.

Time with Michael Chodosh is time well spent!

Aaron introduced my 10 year old daughter to guitar and taught her all about the various components of the guitar and some simple chords and notes. He talked about music with her and catered lessons to focus on songs she was interested in. Aaron came to our house, met our whole family and was very professional. As a parent, I couldn't ask for a better teacher!

Exercises for Practicing Guitar Chords
There are several ways to master the technique of changing chords, so let’s look at a couple of exercises using basic guitar chords. The basic guitar chords are C, D, Dm, E, Em, F, G, A, and Am. Some instructors add C7, D7, E7, G7, A7 and B7. The F chord is always the most difficult for the beginning guitar player because you hold two strings down with one finger. Ideally, you want your basic guitar chords to sound clean and crisp – no muffled strings. Keep practicing the individual chords un
