Private Piano Teacher

I have been teaching the Colorado Springs area for 30 years. My beginning lessons are geared to developing a solid base for reading, listening, memorizing, and a healthy technical approach to the piano. I do not use standard method books as I feel it is my job to teach to your students individual learning style and work on what your student needs as well as use music they love to play. I have had many students do well in competitions and have had many continue their music studies through the college level up through doctorate.

I am looking forward to working with your student and introducing them to the amazing world of piano and creating music.

Private Piano Teacher

I am a Broadway musical director and pianist with over 15 years of experience, looking to start teaching piano. When I was young and first learning piano, I practiced a lot more when I was interested in and excited about the material I was being given. My goal is to meet you where you are and get you where you want to go, keeping you engaged every step of the way.

Are you brand new and learning to read music for the first time? Are you more advanced and looking to push yourself with new material and professional feedback? Maybe you always wanted to know what those chord symbols mean? Are you looking to accompany yourself when you sing? Is there a song you've loved for years and wanted to be able to play? I'm happy to focus on all aspects of music, from theory and technique, to performance and professionalism.

I am open to all ages and backgrounds. I suggest starting with a consultation to assess your current skill set and goals, and if we gel we can proceed forward.

About Rick

I was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs. I started playing piano in the 2nd grade. I went to NYU where I earned a Bachelor of Music in piano performance. The bulk of my career has been spent working on Broadway shows, either in NYC or on tour. I have worked as a pianist, music director/conducto

If you can hear it, you can play it!

Hi there, and a big welcome to you! Would you like to play the piano by ear and start making music in a matter of weeks?

I could not be happier with the lessons Melanie is giving to my grandson. He is on the autism spectrum and she has really connected with him and made a positive impact on his life! He has come so far musically and has astounded me with his progress. Thanks to Melanie, he has a passion for music now and practices all the time, even when he's supposed to be doing his chores. Lol

Melanie was amazing. I knew that certain chords sounded good together but I didn't know why. She taught me the "why's" & explained music theory in a way I could understand. She is super patient & encouraging! I couldn't believe how fast I learned to play. I really owe her a debt of gratitude.

"Helped me step up my playing

I had been teaching myself piano for many years when I reached a point where I was not improving and realized I needed a teacher. Sharon helped me work on my weaknesses as a musician and had a good eye for pieces that helped me build on my strengths. We always had fun working together, and she was always good about working around my busy schedule."

Music in the Rockies: Taking Piano Lessons in Colorado Springs, CO

By Wendy H. - Colorado Springs Piano Teacher

My name is Wendy. I have lived in Colorado Springs for over 30 years, and I’ve been teaching piano, voice, and guitar lessons here for much of that time. I also achieved my Bachelor’s degree in music and set up my own local music studio. If you're interested in taking piano lessons in Colorado Springs, here are a few tips to help you get started!

Participate in School Talent Shows and Music Competitions

As a piano teacher, I like to make sure that my students are grounded in the foundations of playing and reading music with proper technique. To help them achieve this, there are many music activities that I encourage my students to participate in while taking piano lessons. For example, many schools - from elementary to

...

high school - offer talent shows and music competitions. I prepare my students for these activities by asking them which song they want to play. After they have learned the song well, we then stylize it with lots of expression and originality.

Additionally, junior and high schools compete in city-wide music competitions. The music or band teacher can set students up to be involved in these competitions, which are usually done in April or May.

Compete in the Annual El Paso County Fair

The El Paso County Fair has a yearly piano talent competition in the summer. If a student wins or places at the county level, this leads them to the State Fair competition in Pueblo, Co in August.

Play Gigs

For my older students, I suggest they try playing gigs at coffee shops, restaurants, local bars and dance halls. They can play piano for church, their school or community choirs. I also encourage my students to play for weddings and special occasions.

Enjoy Concerts

I am a big proponent of exposing my students to all types of music, both during our lessons and as an extracurricular activity. In the summer, many local parks have free concerts with all types of music. You can go and listen to everything from big band to jazz, Christian to rock, and classical to hip hop. Many churches have free concerts, as well. By checking out some local websites or listening to local radio stations, you can find out about many free and interesting music activities.

Paul Ferrin hosts a hymn sing a couple of times a year at Radiant Church in Colorado Springs. He brings in some amazing piano players. It is spectacular to watch them play up and down the keyboard - truly inspiring. Churches in this area have some amazing piano players, especially some of the larger ones. This is also an excellent way to go and see some fantastic playing.

Additionally, local concert venues, such as the Air Force Academy and the Fine Arts Center, offer many different types of music for your entertainment. There are many popular bands that come here to play, and you can see everything from classical to Broadway, to country and pop rock. There is a lot of variety for this ever-growing and changing city.

 

If you’re interested in taking piano lessons in Colorado Springs and being a part of this exciting and growing music community, go to my TakeLessons profile, and find me in the teacher’s list to read more about my point of view on music and book some lessons with me!
