Offering beginning voice lessons to all ages in all genres and styles.
Lessons are catered to the individual student's goals and learning styles.
Unlike instructors who only use karaoke tracks for accompaniment, I accompany my students on the piano. This allows me to make accompaniment recordings for the students to practice with. I provide warm-ups, melody tracks and full piano accompaniment tracks (at appropriate tempos). This is very beneficial for students when practicing as the accompaniment recordings can "grow" with their skill level on each song. It also gives the student the flexibility to choose songs that would normally be outside of their vocal range, because we can transpose the song and make recordings in a key that works for them!
I specialize in working with young voices that are still developing and helping students learn the differences between choral singing and solo singing.

About Kit
With 2 degrees in music and more than 8 years of teaching experience, I offer piano and voice lessons to any age and any level! I consider the most important aspect of teaching to be creating an environment where a love of music can be discovered and nurtured. Everyone is offered the opportunity to discover and deepen their love of music. I chose to make music my career so that I can guide you on your priceless journey towards becoming a better musician...a better person.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do not use one set curriculum. Instead, I have familiarized myself with a dozen various curriculum, and choose the best fit for each individual student. I am open to using books you already own as supplemental material and encourage students to share their suggestions in selecting music. Every student has different goals, and I tailor t
he lessons to meet them.
Within the first lesson, we will set short and long term goals and lesson plans will be made to help you achieve them.
I provide accompaniment and melody recordings for vocal students to practice with.
Material will be sent home with you to peruse at your convenience. This will include articles from music dictionaries, archives, journals and more to give you an opportunity to become a well rounded musician.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright piano in living room with waiting area for parents so they may sit in on lessons.
Music stand provided for voice lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Some music may be provided by myself and I am also willing to work with certain books the student may already own. There will be at least one book required for purchase. I expect students to have a pencil and notebook at every lesson.
Water is welcome and encouraged for vocal students.

Parking is available on the street directly outside the studio.

*** Specialties ***
Too often I have seen damage caused to the vocal chords from an instructor's lack of knowledge in developing voices. I am proud to offer voice lessons where I specialize in working with young voices that are still maturing!

I provide piano accompaniment for vocal lessons at no additional cost. I also make accompaniment recordings for the students to practice with. This allows me to transpose songs, letting students learn songs that might otherwise be out of their vocal range. It also allows for flexibility in the tempo so students can learn at a slower pace and increase speed as they become more comfortable.

I believe in teaching a well rounded curriculum and therefore introduce my students to the styles of all genres.

I am a 67 yo man who had studied music eons ago. I finally admitted that I missed it and decided to take lessons for the piano. Kit has been an exceptional instructor. She is very knowledgeable and talented. She teaches by guiding me along the way at my own pace. But is not adverse to correcting my errors. She also sends me home with advice on pitfalls to avoid in my practicing. She is patient, friendly, and makes learning very enjoyable. I highly recommend her for piano lessons to students of all ages. Thank you

Only a 1st lesson, but Kit is great with my Daughter. She had 2 months of piano lessons 4 years ago (when she was 8), but picked it up very quickly and was playing songs almost immediately with Kit as her instructor. The sign that it was a success is that upon returning home she went to the keyboard and wanted to practice what she had learned. Highly recommended.

I cannot speak highly enough about Kit! For my wedding, I wanted to surprise Ashleigh by singing a particular song. Not only had I never had singing lessons, but I also had zero confidence in my voice that I could pull this off. Kit is SO PATIENT! She took the time to tailor my lessons to help me learn the song, and weekly tips. She also went out of her way to work with my schedule, since my lessons had to be a secret since it was for a surprise.
When the night of our wedding came along, Kit's patience and teaching paid off- I was confident and comfortable, which made the experience memorable and fun!! It was a part of our wedding we will both always cherish. Thank you very much Kit!!!

Whether you want to prepare yourself for college auditions, sing better at your choir or church, or just enjoy the fun nd health benefits of singing, I can help you. With almost 15 years of teaching experience, I have come to watch many of my students go on to college and graduate school successfully. Most of them under full tuition scholarships. I am a classically trained singer myself and the approach to my lessons are over all focused on healthy emission of the voice with emphasis on breath suport and appropriate placement according to the style you want to perform: classical, musical theatre, jazz or any contemporary genre. I will help you reach your goals with vocal exercises and weekly routines designed specific for your needs. All you need is desire to learn and enjoy!

About Daniela
I hold a Bachelor degree in Vocal Performance and a Masters in Vocal Performance and Voice Pedagogy. Singing and teaching are my two passions! I am a classically trained singer with an operatic lyric soprano voice. Opera is my first love, but I also like and enjoy singing musical theatre, jazz and other contemporary genres. In fact, for quite a while I taught at a Berklee International Network School in South America, where jazz was the main emphasis of my students. I enjoy teaching students from mostly any age and any background. From beginners to more advanced singers, as they all present some form of challenge and different rewarding experiences.

Coincidentally, I have come to teach mostly teenagers and young adults, sort of specializing in college audition preparation where %100 of my students who have applied to attend music schoo
l have successfully been accepted. Most of them under full tuition scholarships to pursue singing careers. Some of them are currently attending the University of Denver, CU Boulder, University of the Redlands, University of British Columbia, Universitat Mozarteum (Salzburg). I also have experience teaching senior citizens from a community choir and members from an all visually impaired choir. I have never encountered any difficulty while teaching students with special needs. This experiences have actually made me become a better more creative educator.

My lessons are focused on healthy emission of the voice working on breath support and adequate placement of the voice according to the style. Once we have gone through a diagnostic and discuss the student´s goals, I prepare a routine of vocal exercises tailored for the individual needs and skill level of the student as well as negotiate on the repertoire that the student wants to sing.

If teaching in the student´s home, I expect for the student to have at least a basic music keyboard for pitch matching purposes. I also expect my students to practice in between lessons so that every time we meet we can add another layer of knowledge. This will bring gratification and fulfillment to both of us!

Dani is a really special instructor for me! She helped me realize how big my passion for singing was because, since the beginning, she has inspired me with her singing, passion, and knowledge. She was my teacher for 4 years and she prepared me to get into CU Boulder’s School of Music. With her guidance I improved not only my vocal technique, but my musicality, acting skills, languages, and every single aspect that a singer needs to be a professional artist. She was really specific and patient about my growth as an opera singer and she always helped me find the perfect repertoire for me. I can say that I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for her. Dani saw the best in me even when I didn’t, and I am still learning a lot from her.

Daniela has been my favorite vocal trainer so far. Besides her expirience and knowledge about the voice, she took time to really listen to my voice and identify things I was doing wrong, or things I did not even know how to do. She empowered me so much that now I actually use my whole body to sing, and I also feel more confident to do challenging things, with my voice, with no harm. I feel that there is a before and after, in my voice, thanks to Daniela as my teacher.

Dani is really the best instructor ever. When I started taking lessons with her my goal was to prepare for a college audition. Immediately she helped me identify where I could improve my technique and offered a variety of exercises that suited me best. She is familiar with tons of classical repertoire as well as jazz and popular songs. I really enjoyed that she made my lessons challenging enough to help me grow musically, but always working on something within my reach. She also has many incredibly useful performance hacks to help get out the best of you when its time to be on stage. I am happy to say that all the time and our hard work was well spent. After I auditioned for the college I wanted I received not only the acceptance letter, but also a near full tuition musical merit based scholarship. Thank you so much Dani!

Singing and performing for an audience has been the love of my life. I have performed in all types of venues from small churches to performing Soprano soloist in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with The Berlin Philharmonic in Berlin, Germany.

Whatever you want to accomplish in your singing, I can help you get there, and enjoy the process along the way!~

About Amber
Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role.
Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.)
I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to continue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production.
Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at the UNT commencement ceremonies. This led to an off
er to tour Italy with the Rome Festival Orchestra. For the next two summers I performed in Copenhagen, Istanbul, Rome and Berlin with the Berlin Philharmonic.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students progress VERY quickly! As a teacher, I can easily identify my students’ strengths and weaknesses, and plan an individualized study course. I will instill a solid set of production skills that will easily serve ANY style of music you choose (from rock to opera.)
I will make for you a personalized recording for you to practice with daily. We will also work on songs you LOVE!
My students will have performance opportunities every 3 months. I will prepare you for college entrance auditions, TV contests, and television appearances. My students make extraordinary progress-I want you to become one of them!

TWO thrilling developments with 2 of Amber's students:

1. One of Amber's young students, aged 7 years old, was chosen Miss Young Colorado...this student used piano as her talent!!! Amber began teaching her young student the piano almost 1 year ago and she won the Talent division of Miss Young Colorado...
2. Another one of my college aged students who has taken 2 lessons per week for 2 years, auditioned for America's Got Talent. He was chosen as one of the Regional Finalists for Colorado."

*** Studio Equipment ***
10x15 dedicated music room, piano, lovely mountain view, mirrors, microphone and sound equipment available for students. The parents of students are welcome to stay in the room with the students, if they choose.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a piano and I will purchase the method book I want the student to use but I do require reimbursement for books and shipping if required. Student provides notebooks and pens.

I have been teaching voice lessons for 5 years. I teach diction (5 languages), breath control, resonance, tonal quality, intonation, etc.

About Ellen
As Abbe' Dimnet once said, "Children have to be educated, but they have also to be left to educate themselves."

I aim to teach my students how to sing through kinesthesia. This allows them to internalize what they are doing in the studio so they can practice it at home and be more successful. Practicing what they learn in the studio will help them gain good habits, making singing and performing more effortless. One of the hard things about learning how to sing, is learning to use muscles you can not see. This is why kinesthesia is important! It helps the student learn how everything feels, so they can produce free, open, resonant sounds.

I also aim to teach my students artistry! Music can be a powerful influence in our lives and society. It is important for a student to learn to connect with their music so they can be better perfor
mers.

Last, I am a member of NATS. This allows me to continue my education on the voice and gives me new insights from other great teachers and vocal scientists around the nation. By being a member of this association, it also allows me to give my students opportunities to compete in competitions and get feedback from other great teachers.

I grew up in Centennial, Colorado and started playing the violin in 4th grade. I developed an interest in singing in middle school, and started voice lessons when I was 16. I have been singing ever since!

I graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho in April 2009, with a Bachelor degree in Music Science. I emphasized in vocal instruction.

I am happily married to my husband, Kevin, who is currently studying to be an optometrist.

I sing and teach all styles of singing, and I believe that good vocal technique will prepare you for anything. Taking voice lessons is a great way to become more confident, to impress your friends at karaoke, or to prepare to make your living as a musician. I will help you discover your voice and prepare you to sing well in any situation.

I don't sing metal or scream myself, but I'm definitely willing to help you learn how to sing that way as healthily as possible.

About Tony
I studied Voice Performance at the University of Denver, earning my Bachelors of Music in 2011. I've been teaching voice, piano, composition, song writing, and music theory for 8 years to students of all ages. Teaching is one of my greatest joys as a professional musician, and I hope to share that joy with you!

I focus on three principles in every lesson I teach: be aware, be creative, and be efficient. As awareness increases, seemingly contradictory ideas become complimentary; as creativity develops, we laugh and smile on the journey towards musical fluency; when we think and practice efficiently, we realize we're capable of far more than we thought.

Tony has been my kids' piano teacher for three years now, and we have nothing but great things to say. When he started with us my daughter was almost 5, and he's taught her for 3 years, and has taught my younger son (now age 6.5) for about 2+ years.

First off, my kids LOVE Tony. They are excited for their lessons every week and really enjoy their time with him. They really enjoy playing piano and have made really great progress with Tony as their teacher. Tony is great at teaching them the fundamentals while also working with their specific interests to help motivate them and keep things really fun (my son wanted to learn an Imagine Dragons song and Tony didn't miss a beat!) He's fun, passionate, great at working with different personalities and ages, and overall a fantastic teacher. Highly highly recommend!

Learn how to sing any song you desire! We'll use warm-ups to work on breath, range, placement, projection, rhythms, solfege (do, re, mi...) and ear training, then apply those techniques to the songs and genre of your choice. With music moving so far into technology, I also like to offer the option of incorporating studio equipment into lessons. This will allow you to learn about mic technique as well as what recording vocals is like! My ultimate goal is to teach you how to better your singing voice in an easy and fun fashion :)

About Calee
With a deep understanding of music, 15 years of studying, and 3 years of teaching under her belt, Calee is equipped to help break things down to make learning music fun and easy. She understands there are many routes to learning music and wants to teach the way you want to learn. Begin your journey with a method book; study your favorite artists; learn how to create songs; discover improvising (this does not exclusively apply to jazz!); become a better sight reader; learn from the classics; learn from Hip-Hop; you get the idea. I want you to learn what you want to learn! Choose any of these routes via voice and/or piano and together we'll make you the musician you've always dreamed of becoming! 😄🎵🎹🎤🙌🏼

She's comfortable to work with and will go at your speed while pushing you to learn more in a gentle and professional manner. She has patience and a welcoming demeanor which makes learning to play enjoyable and a reprieve from the daily grind. She's very respectful of my time and scheduling and easy to get ahold of.

I teach basic singing techniques and vocal coaching, which includes breathing, posture and jaw position. We will work on vocal exercises, breathing exercises and song style and interpretation. You will also learn performance stance, emotive expression and stage etiquette. Performance recitals are optional but a possibility. Learning proper vocal technique helps shape the quality of your voice and helps prevent vocal injury, often caused by poor posture, breath support and singing from the throat, which puts strain on the vocal cords, causing nodes. We will work to build singing endurance through stretching your breath capacity and singing for longer periods of time. Six lessons is required for learning the basic principles, while more lessons are needed for mastery of skills and learning a song well.

About Bryon
I'm a fun loving, friendly and personable teacher who wants you to get the most out of your time and money. I encourage my students to practice daily and have fun while they sing. Sometimes the techniques you learn will require some silly activities that hopefully will make you laugh, but they can be invaluable for learning new skills and training your body to help you sing better. I think singing is an experiment with each student because no two people learn the same way, so I try to match my teaching style to your personality so you can learn more quickly. I hope you will give me a try and see how enjoyable and rewarding it can feel when you make great strides in your abilities and achievements in singing!

Bryon has been a great help and voice teacher to me. He tailored the content of his lessons to my “run-and-gun” style of learning, giving me just the techniques and background that I needed, even though he is capable of giving me a complete formal training.
He helped me break through some blocks I have had in vocal technique and expressing the depth of my emotion in my singing. He helped me to project so much more than I could before, which so much less “effort.”
When I couldn’t get the techniques right, he kept coming up with new ways of demonstrating them or getting me to do them correctly.
Brian believes in his students and gives them his absolute best. He knows how to find you right where you are and lead you to where you need to go next in your talent/technique.
I have an audition coming up for The Voice, and I hope Brian will once again help me to get to the next level (quite literally) in my singing.
I can’t recommend him highly enough!

My approach to vocal training is similar to my approach to teaching piano. I start with a song the student wants to be able to sing well, and we work through any issues like pitch, breath support, modulation, and tone until they are singing well and with confidence. We will also cover exercises for warm-up, strengthening the voice (as someone who plays 100-200 shows per year, vocal health is something I have learned a lot about), and expanding range.

About Christopher
I am a pianist and singer-songwriter. I recently moved to Denver, Colorado from Des Moines, Iowa. I make a living full-time as a musician, and give piano, vocal, and songwriting lessons in my free time.

I have worked in an official capacity for the non-profit ArtForce Iowa, teaching piano, voice, and songwriting to court-appointed youth. I have also taught piano to adults, and lead an annual songwriting course at the University of Iowa's Young Writer's Workshop.

My main musical project is called Christopher the Conquered. You can look it up online to hear samples of my work and to watch videos of my live performances. My music has appeared in films and commercials as well.

For in-person lessons, I have a portable recording rig that I can use to record students who are ready to share what they've learned, whether it be with friends/fami
ly (a great gift) or with the world by uploading the songs online.

6 Tips for Singing and Playing the Piano at the Same Time
Artists like Billy Joel and Elton John may make it look effortless, but singing and playing the piano at the same time takes time and practice to truly master! Understandably, it’s difficult because you’re multitasking by "playing" two instruments simultaneously – your voice and the piano. It’s easy to lose concentration on one, while the other goes a little off; if you focus on your voice, you might mess up the timing with your fingers, and should you pay too much attention to the piano key

Backup singing is a crucial part of great albums and concerts. While it may seem that the lead singer has a tough job, it's easy to forget how challenging it is to seamlessly weave complex harmonies into an overall melody, all without taking over the spotlight.
