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.
While still in high school, I auditioned for, and got,
the title role in the Country Dinner Playhouse’s production of Fiddler on the Roof.
After high school, I chose the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music to continue my music education. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with my Bachelor of Music degree in piano. I was invited to join the academic honor society, Phi Beta Kappa, as well as the music honor society, Pi Kappa Lambda. I have also completed my Master of Music in piano at Lamont School of Music.
While in college, I accompanied many vocal and instrumental students, and discovered the joy of chamber and collaborative music. I formed partnerships and friendships with many other musicians, including professional musicians in several countries. I have also worked as a pianist for several area churches and spent one holiday season as a pianist at Nordstrom.
I believe that music should be an integral part of a well-rounded education. I hope that my passion for music will enable me to help others find the same joy and appreciation.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that every student learns differently and that those differences should be embraced. For that reason, I do not advocate a specific method or curriculum. I will work with each student individually to determine what method of learning will work best for them. Together we will decide what our curriculum should be so that we can incorporate not only learning, but fun into lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Computer desk, piano, dedicated music room, space for parents to wait

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect students to provide their own instruments.

*** Specialties ***
Classical music

If you are an adult and want to learn piano Molly is the answer. She is very knowledgeable and her musicality is top notch. I have a music background and she keeps me focused and teaches me things about the piano that differ from other instruments. If you are new to music or new to the piano I would highly recommend Molly as a teacher.

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 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.

Piano

*** Specialties ***

About David
Hi! My name is David and I love to teach piano. Music is my favorite thing ever. Performing, accompanying, teaching, listening, anything with music, I'm in hog heaven. Every kind, any genre. I love 'em all, yes, even country.

I teach both pop styles (rock, r&b, jazz, etc.) and classical (Debussy, Beethoven, Bartok, etc.). If you just want to learn some keyboard skills together with theory (like for producing) but you're not interested in necessarily *reading* music, I'm one of the few piano teachers that's ready, willing, and able to teach you how to play without tying everything to musical notation. Or, I can teach you to rock some Shostakovich. Or accompany your choir. Or write songs. I have no agenda other than helping you grow as a musician. What path that takes is entirely up to you.

I'm a caring and empathetic teac
her, and I make learning fun! Questions? Please ask!

About Kostadin
I was raised in a musical family in my home country of Bulgaria, where I attended a highly competitive full-time performing arts school from age 6. I was trained in the Russian school of violin playing and have found this to be a very successful method for my younger students in the United States. Another important pedagogical mentor for me is my viola teacher at Rice University, Ivo-Jan Van der Werff, who has developed a systematic approach to building technique fundamentals in advanced violists and violinists. I believe that studying music is very valuable for instilling self-motivation, discipline, and dedication for students of all ages. I was involved in the Mercury Orchestra's outreach partnership with YES Prep schools, which serve underprivileged communities in Houston. I was also a string specialist at the Village School in Housto
n, and my students there and in other public schools in the area excelled in the All-Region and All-State competitions.

About Alexios
I am a classically trained multi instrumentalist and composer who loves to rock&roll. I have performed all over the world on cruise ships, and I have recently settled in Denver to focus on teaching and creating new music.

I received my formal education from the Berklee College of Music, and I received my informal education in Spain studying the art of flamenco with the gypsies themselves.

I specialize in classical/flamenco acoustic guitar as well as NeoClassical style electric guitar. I have developed a highly effective method which, when followed correctly, gives a very high level of playing in a relatively short amount of time.

Finding a teacher who has been down the path you are planning to go take can save you an enormous amount of time. I have been down many paths so far, and I specialize in finding the simplest route pos
sible for each individual student with respect to their own musical goals and dreams.

About Ryan
My name is Ryan and I offer private drum lessons.

Music, specifically drumming, is my passion. I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to make a living performing & teaching drums. Watching a student work on a new song for months and finally get to the point where they are ready to perform it is a truly great feeling. Many of my students have been with me since they started playing drums, I feel very grateful to maintain such fantastic students.

Any time I have a show locally in Colorado, I often put one of my students & their family on the guest list and allow them to come backstage and see what it's like to perform on stage in front of a crowd. This offers the student an opportunity to see their teacher perform and a fun night for the family.

You can catch me performing locally with Grayson Erhard, Emma Mayes & the Hip,
and Smirk.

About Hayley
As a classically trained violinist, I can offer you important music theory and technique knowledge that will carry you far. As a folk artist, I also know how to bend the rules when necessary and create something unexpected. I have been teaching for 8 years and my favorite part of lessons is when I learn something new from my students. I love making sure my students not only feel that they are getting a quality education by learning from me, but that they also feel that they can express themselves and that they have something new and unique to offer the world. The more I teach, the more I learn.
I know that taking lessons can be intimidating, so I make it my goal for every student to feel comfortable and have fun! My job is not to make you into an artist, but to give you the tools to introduce you to the artist you already are.

About Julie
I was introduced to piano lessons when I was 5 and fell in love with music. Lessons were a part of my life for over 20 years and being comfortable playing in a public setting was a goal I achieved at an early age. For over 10 years I have had the delight of teaching children, teenagers, and some adults the joy of playing the piano! It is a wonderful skill that can bring comfort, joy, and relaxation, both to those who listen and to oneself. Furthermore, it is a great foundational instrument to learn before changing to other instruments if desired. While my experience lies in teaching classical and sacred music, I also know the value of working with my students to develop skills in the areas and styles of music they would like to learn. It is my desire to work individually with each student in a way that instills a love and passion for musi
c and piano playing in each one!

As a home schooling mother, I desired that our children had an opportunity to include musical training in their daily curriculum. When I asked Julie about lessons she readily accepted the challenge to teach in our home. She adapted each lesson to the specific needs of our children & sought to make learning enjoyable. All of them have a very good foundation & love for music & several have & still do play publically.

Julie is a conscientious teacher. She taught several of our children the fundamentals of piano - notes, timing, fingering, etc - and gave them a great foundation for their further development. She is patient and kind, qualities that are very needful for helping beginners.
One of the reasons we chose Julie was because we attended church where she was the regular pianist, and we could watch and hear the skills she had to play. We would highly recommend her.

About Bekah
My name is Bekah, and I have been playing piano since I was five and still love to go on music adventures!

When I first was learning how to play piano, I didn't like it. I didn't like practicing and got frustrated when I couldn't understand how to play. That's why now, as a piano teacher, I love to make lessons and practicing really FUN and rewarding. And when things get tough (because almost anything that's worth trying gets hard sometimes!), let's talk about it and come up with a creative solution to move forward!

I've taught elementary grades and piano lessons for several years. Currently, I'm a local actress in the Denver area working to keep music and artistry alive in our world. I'd love to meet you and go on an adventure together learning piano!
