Classical Piano is vital for all aspects of learning both keyboard and piano. As soon as possible I introduce the great periods of Music, from Baroque to the present day. The great masters help students to be better musicians through the discipline of music.

About Ronald
Coming form a musical family, I cannot remember when music was not a part of my life. Both my parents were musicians, my father an instrumentalist and arranger and my mother a fine pianist. From the age of seven they encouraged and assisted my music education any way they could. Music came first in our family. My school years were spent in band, marching band and jazz band. During my high school years I took over the local elementary band and taught beginning band to the students after the band teacher had left before the school year finished.
To pay my way through college I taught piano, organ and band instruments in rural Colorado, even using a horse to get to my students when the roads were closed. During this time I was the house organist at the Alladin Theater in Denver and had the pleasure of playing for the primer of
" The Duchess and Dirtwater Fox" starring George Segal and Goldie Hawn. I also played for many churches in the area assisting with choir and congregational music.
My teaching experience is broad with both private and public school classroom experiences. I have taught privately for well over forty years in both a private and group settings. I also have a MSW ( Master Social Worker) degree from the University of Denver and for many years assisted Seniors with the challenges that they face.
Currently I am Minister of Music for First Presbyterian Church in Georgetown, Colorado ( a small mountain community west of Denver). I am organist for the Scottish Rite Temple in Denver and perform private and public events throughout the mountain and Denver area.

*** Lesson Details ***
For many years I have been blessed to go to my student's homes. In this comfortable, familiar background I have found the student is more relaxed in the learning process. With the teacher coming to the home this is one less thing for the parent to schedule in their busy schedule. I also have a comfortable studio in my home with piano, organ, keyboard and recording capabilities.
Everyone whether child or adult has a different style of learning music this is of vital importance of learning anything. This along with the students desires from their learning experience will help decide which coarse will best fit there needs. Through the years my students have shared with me that I am relaxed, easy going and make the lessons fun with a great sense of humor. I strive for the student to be playing music of their choice as soon as possible.
As we walk down the music road all aspects of music education are shared and encouraged. It is vitally important that the student has good reading skills, a basic understanding of music theory,technique,ear training and music history, as music encompasses all aspects of learning from the youngest student to the adult.

*** Studio Equipment ***
in home studio with piano,organ and keyboard and recording capabilities, with seating for parents and guests.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide the books and any supplementary material needed such a a book to write their assignments in. I will provide the lessons and rewards if they apply to the situation such as in young students.

*** Specialties ***
I find I use many methods of instruction. The method needs to fit the student and the situation one is in. I use the Alfred Method a great deal of the time as I find it works well in many situations. As the student advances I supplement in music wants and desires as well a curriculum that may be used if they should decide to continue their studies in a university or college setting.

Students will work towards learning music by the great classical composers such as Mozart, Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Kabalevsky, Schubert, Grieg and many more! In addition to classical studies, we will visit other genres of music including Jazz, Blues, Folk, Pop, etc. However, creating a classical foundation is fundamental and essential to developing proper technique and artistry.

Can you imagine being able to play the piano, even complex and virtuosic music, with ease and effortless musicality? Believe it or not, it is possible!

Playing the piano with good technique and understanding can produce the most amazing music without straining, pain, difficulty or struggling while playing; and yes, you can do it too! This is what I teach my students so they are able to enjoy their playing and not feel like they're not making progress or that they're just going through the motions. There is a way to play the piano that makes it efficient and enjoyable, and I incorporate these ideas directly into the pieces the student wants to work on. I work with classical and contemporary piano music as well as theory, composition and piano technique, all of which help make piano playing as excellent as it can be! Check out my videos (below) and YT channel to see effortless playing at work!

I will work with the student on how to practice the concepts needed for each piece and ...

About Alex
Teaching is what I do! I have TAed multiple classes and taught dozens of students. I teach piano and other music concepts, as well as STEM fields in school. I only teach concepts that I'm completely fluent in, however, so you always get the absolute best instruction possible!

I have been playing piano for over 12 years. I retrained from scratch in the Taubman Technique a few years ago and play with ease and effortless musicality! I have taught tons of students how to play the instrument, incorporating these concepts into their playing as well.

I also tutor in STEM topics, including all math, physics, chemistry, and others. I have tutored over 2 dozen students and helped many achieve great results. I have a Master's degree in applied physics, graduated Magna cum Laude, and am fully prepared to help you master your math/science class
es!

Learning piano or any instrument takes patience and is rewarding to see progress. I give the student time to learn and process their songs. I welcome questions and give professional feedback. I think of myself of more of a music coach to provide support through your musical journey.

About Angie
I started playing the piano when I was about 8 years old living in Salt Lake City Utah. My family would be watching TV or doing something else and I would go upstairs and play the piano instead. I practiced until I got to the level to play Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata original composition. I still love to play that one. I also loved to play a piece my grandfather gave me called Cordoba, by Isaac Albeniz.

I have played bass and keyboards in an original band giving a good knowledge of musical body language. From there I went on to teaching private and group lessons at Pianos n' Pianos studios. I use a few different method books. When deciding which one to use during a lesson, I assess the age of the student and what they can absorb. I started supplementing their lessons by using a write-it-out method, where students can take a few lin
es from a song they like and combine it with other songs. That way they can “compose” and be more invested in the music we are playing.

If you play a wrong note, I tell my students to just keep going and to not lose concentration. Wrong notes happen sometimes. If you make a wrong note in a performance, you can’t stop, you just have to roll with it and keep going. I also encourage singing with the piano that helps learns pitches and notes!

When teaching young children, I make sure to give them variety and plan lessons only about 30 minutes long. For adult learner, it is very good to play piano to keep the mind active and sharp. So really any age, 6 and up, is a good age!

My son has sensory processing disorder and delayed fine motor skills. We started piano lessons to help him catch up. The results of Angie's positive, patient and encouraging approach exceeded our expectations. Her lessons not only improved my son's dexterity, but they also helped my son to appreciate, play and compose music. He has even chosen to evolve his percussion skills in band class. I highly recommend her for any family.

With more than 35 years professional experience both performing and teaching, I understand what it takes to become comfortable and confident at the keyboard while having fun along the way.

I met Lori at a recent voice competition where she was the designated pianist for my division. She rehearsed patiently, returned texts promptly, and kept a steady, cheerful attitude through two days surrounded by stressed-out singers. As for her playing, she performed challenging repertoire with grace and disciplined understatement that made it clear she was there to help us shine. It's hard for me to overstate just how good an accompanist she is.

Are you looking to start piano, brush up on previously learned skills, or desire to learn piano for fun? I specialize in beginner to intermediate levels and all ages are welcome! I have taught for over 10 years and adapt each lesson to fit the individual need and style. I am great with young children-gentle and kind with a passion to be creative in teaching. My goal is to help each student understand music concepts, grow in confidence and celebrate achievements!

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!

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.

I started with Mark as a beginner and he has been everything I hoped for in a piano teacher. He’s patient, understanding, knowledgeable, and has helped me tremendously. Mark gets as excited as I do when I make progress! Mark told me upfront he would be demanding about practicing scales and focusing on proper fingering — and It has been very helpful. Plus Mark is a very nice guy and I always look forward to chatting with him during our lessons.

Mark is a wonderful voice teacher! I have sung in choirs for years without having had any proper voice training. I’ve had Mark’s compassionate coaching for about three years and I feel so much more confident in my voice and my ability to contribute to the group.

When Mark gives feedback he always finds a lot of positive things to point out and deftly slips in the issues I need to work on. I leave my lessons feeling good while having a good idea of the work I need to do before my next lesson.

I highly recommend Mark Zwilling if you are looking for a voice teacher; he is extremely knowledgeable, kind, and patient.
