I’m available to teach private lessons for teens and adults interested in learning piano for the first time, or who want to improve their skills. My strengths are patience, enthusiasm, and an unusual way of approaching piano. I’m not famous or particularly interested in becoming famous, so if that’s your goal, I’m not the right teacher for you. I strongly believe everyone can play piano, and should. There are so many ways to access the piano -- sight reading music, improv, composition, accompaniment, playing by ear -- and whatever way works for you is the right way. Finally, I believe it’s never too late to start learning something new, and your bucket list should not wait until you retire.

About Kristen

I started dance later in life -- tap at 19 and ballet at 31 -- because I was so tall and awkward as a child. It never occurred to me that people my size could be dancers. I fell in love with dance as an escape from a stressful job teaching high school history. I saw such changes in myself the more

Kristen is a human that makes her students feel immediately at ease. She is kind, quirky, and hilarious, but more importantly, she is patient and meets students where they are to ultimately fulfill their potential and their goals. I first started taking tap classes from Kristen a few years ago as a nervous adult (25 yo) seeking a bare bones beginner tap class. Since then, having incorporated exercises, games, and routines to awesome music, I have come leaps and bounds, built up my courage and confidence, and am proud to officially feel part of the tap community. If you’re looking for an excellent teacher, regardless of experience level, look no further!
Katie O
I can not say enough positive things about Kristen and her teaching! She is one of the best teachers I have had. She understands that adults learn differently than kids. Kristen has a great way of giving feedback that inspires you to grow and learn. I especially enjoy the flexibility she demonstrates in her teaching style. If I am not getting something, the next week she has a different method to teach it and bingo, it has clicked.
Mona Jacobson
Kristen is an amazing teacher; she exudes a love for dance. Her teaching style is supportive and encouraging. Her feedback is provided in a gentle way. She is excellent at explaining all the steps in ballet and tap. I look forward to my lessons with her and have loved her teaching style so much during ballet that I am now taking tap lessons with her. I think Kristen is the perfect teacher for adults wanting to learn ballet and tap and I highly recommend taking lessons with her.

Nabin, a renowned face amongst the Coloradans is a classical tabla virtuoso of the highest order. His consistently brilliant and exciting performances have not only established him as one of the prominent musicians in his own country, Nepal but gained him worldwide fame. His deep understanding of different traditional styles of tabla playing, tonal quality, clarity and ability to collaborate with different genres of music makes him different from regular percussionists and it’s no surprise that he’s the favorite accompanist for many musicians and dancers.

As a beginner with zero experience playing any instruments, I am so grateful for Nabin's expertise, patience, and natural ability to instruct. Nabin makes it easy and fun to learn playing the tabla. He sets reasonable expectations, creates a fun and low-stress environment, and is lovely to work with! I look forward to continue working with him and would highly recommend him!

Nabin is not only an incredibly skilled musician, but he is incredibly skilled at teaching music in a cohesive way. His perspective on music as a whole, as well as tabla, has expanded my learning greatly. I am grateful for every lesson as I know I will come out of it with new valuable information to instill in my practice.

Nabin is a wonderful instructor - my son has been taking lesson with him, and he's a great and knowledgeable tabla instructor. Would highly recommend him to anyone!

Karen is a wonderful teacher. Very experienced and patient with a beginner.
Erika H.
Karen is so friendly, sweet, and methodical in teaching style. It is wonderful to be introduced to dulcimer with her and - literally - learn how to fine tune my instrument with her tips and encouragement. She makes me even more excited to tune and play my instrument. I can easily get happily lost simply in the tuning process with my dulcimer as it brings me a lot of joy just to hear the notes come into tune and playing very small, minor amounts of things on my dulcimer as is... it is so nice to have a guide like Karen to help me better to understand and dance with my dulcimer, learn about music and how the dulcimer strings are arranged, and how to hold the hammers! I thought I was excited to learn before... I'm even more happy and excited now and have some clear, down to earth steps to begin to actually really play with my instrument!

I began playing the piano when I was 3 years old in Japan. I have the Yamaha certification of piano instructor, which I passed the exam when I was 16. I played in many music festivals held in the city as the pianist and competed in many youth competitions.

I was diagnosed with tendinitis when I was 15 and I was unable to play competitively after that. However, I still enjoy playing the piano and love teaching the joy of being able to play the piano to let the heart out. It’s relaxing and exhilarating at the same time.

In addition, practicing the piano is great for brain development especially for younger children. However, it doesn’t matter if you are young or old, playing the piano is great for brain health and mental health as well. I look forward to working with kids, adults or seniors!

"I found the lesson with Don effective. He is an experienced teacher who knows what you need to learn in order to achieve your goal. He has plenty of handouts that really helps me practice. The most important thing I learned from him is the big picture of guitar learning. For example, I learned the connection between scales and chords, why/how to improvise with these, how to go from there to other relevant things, etc."

6 Tools to Learn Piano at Home

Piano may be one of the toughest instruments to learn, because of all the multitasking required! You have to be able to read two different musical lines simultaneously, and keep track of what both your left and right hands are doing, all while your foot works the pedals. While most schools have classes to teach students band instruments or stringed instruments, few schools offer piano instruction. This means that most piano students learn how to play at home and in private piano lessons, instead …
