Music theory is the basis on which you build all aspects of music. Without teaching this aspect of music one is only getting a tiny piece of music. Without theory you never help your student walk down the music road to their goal.

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.

About Chris S.

Aurora, CO

Many may know the saying that music is the universal language of mankind, but most people probably don't know just how much music can function similar to a language. Knowing music theory gives you the opportunity to "translate" between musical "dialects." Perhaps you know guitar, but have trouble communicating to your bass player the progressions you play with a capo. Or a keyboardist that has hit a wall in trying to make sense of the timing your drummer is trying to get you to hit. Music theory gives you the foundational building blocks to speak the same musical language, regardless of your instrument. I like to take a simplistic approach to music theory that helps even brand new musicians quickly gain a solid understanding of the subject.

About Chris
A short history of my experience with music and education:

The first instrument I learned to play was the guitar in 2001.

I played the guitar on the worship team at FBC of Midway in Plant City, FL from 2001 to 2005.

I began teaching private music lessons in 2003.

I played bass guitar in a Christian rock band called of Anastasis from 2003 to 2005.

I played acoustic, electric, and bass guitar on the worship team at Family Worship Center in Lakeland, FL from 2006 to 2012.

I worked as a freelance audio engineer with my in-home recording studio throughout college (and now I just do it for fun).

I played bass and sang background vocals in a worship band called Skyline from 2007 to 2009.

I taught music and trained a student led worship team at Hope Christian Academy from 2009-2010.

I began performing independently from
2009 to present.

I played guitar and sang lead vocals in a Christian Rock Band called A Story Familiar from 2010 to 2012.

From 2010 to 2012, I taught in the Polk County public school system of Florida from 2010 to 2012, where I also worked heavily with students with special needs.

In July of 2012 I moved to Aurora, CO as a volunteer musician to help plant Streams Church.

In January of 2013 I married my beautiful wife.

Upon arriving home from our honeymoon, I was hired as Worship Director for Streams church, and I have worked there since. Some of my responsibilities include developing and executing weekly music set lists, creating charts and sheet music for new songs, and training the worship team in new music.

As for me personally, I love Jesus, my wife, and music.  As I'm sure you can tell by my brief history, I do a lot of church service and ministry, if for this for any reason makes you wary, let me assure you: I play a lot more than just church music.  As a lover of music, there is not much that I don't enjoy in the world of music, and I've taught most of it.  I've taught the young and the not-so-young, and whether you're just beginning to read music, or you're just eager to learn your favorite song, I work closely with you to ensure you achieve the results you desire!

*** Lesson Details ***
Four things I focus on:
1. Creating individualized lesson plans for you
2. Teaching you new techniques and polishing old ones
3. Building your confidence
4. Both of us having a fun, rockin' time!

When taking lessons from me, students can expect an environment that is a balance between being strict and laid back.Music is something that must be learned, and as such, it must also be practiced week-to-week in between lessons.  I consider myself strict because I'll hold you accountable to doing your best to learn the best. Despite holding you accountable, I think the overall mood of the learning environment is laid back; we'll have a lot of fun learning music.  I make sure that we'll be learning at your pace, but keep in mind, this doesn't mean I won't push you to be your best! My teaching experience has taught me one thing: everyone is different. That being the case, I create lesson plans that are unique to you.  Where you will be in a month, six months, a year, largely depends on your commitment to learn, but I'll promise you this:  all of my efforts will be utilized to maximize your potentiality.

*** Attendance Policy ***
I am very flexible with attendance, but I do require a one hour notice that you will not be at the lesson. If a one hour notice is not given, the lesson will be marked as "missed" resulting in payment from your TakeLessons account for the missed lesson.

If you are simply running late, please be sure to let me know-I try to be as flexible as possible, but if the student is over 15 minutes late, I typically mark this lesson as "missed" as well.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide the following equipment for in-studio lessons:
Guitar amplifier
Bass amplifier
Drum Set
Computer
iPad
Recording equipment
Music stand
Seating area for parents/guardians to sit/listen in on the lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
When offering in-home lessons, I provide the following when traveling for in-home lessons: iPad
For in-home lessons, I expect students to have whatever equipment is necessary for learning their instrument of interest (This typically includes at least the student's instrument and a music stand, but may also include a metronome, tuner, etc.).

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Jazz, Blues, Folk, Praise/Worship, Indie

all things music theory

About Spencer
I am originally from Northeast Kansas, where I started playing guitar and studying music at the age of 9.

While studying guitar, I had several influential teachers, including internationally renowned finger-style guitarist, Andy McKee, and University of Montana Professor of Music and Classical Guitar, Dr. Luis Millan.

Later, in my teens, I also began playing the Banjo, Mandolin, accordion, and other various instruments.

While attending college at Washburn University in Topeka, KS, I began teaching private music lessons to students of all ages, and experience levels in Northeast Kansas. During this time, I also recorded and regularly performed with my bluegrass/country/cajun band.

I have experience playing and teaching numerous genres including rock, pop, country, blues, jazz, bluegrass, cajun/zydeco, reggae, classical, folk, e
tc.

I relocated to the Denver, CO area in the spring of 2011 after completion of my degree from Washburn University. I continue to teach private music lessons in the Denver metro area.

*** Lesson Details ***
I create fun / structured lessons plans, according to each students' musical interests and experience level. I believe students should be challenged, but also enjoy what they are practicing. I will make sure that beginning students are able to demonstrate and understand various basic to intermediate concepts of music. My goal is that my students will become well-rounded knowledgeable musicians, and will be able to comfortably play and perform with other experienced musicians. I am an easy-going teacher that will make sure students are learning a wealth of information about music, while having a good time doing it.

*** Studio Equipment ***
doesn't really have a studio but could teach out of his home if student really wanted to go.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide Music Stand, amplifier, chords etc.

*** Specialties ***
I can teach a variety of styles of music, including but not limited to, jazz, pop, rock, bluegrass, country, cajun/zydeco etc. I teach music theory/ site reading, flat pick guitar/finger-style guitar, Scruggs style banjo playing, improvisation, etc.

About Ellen W.

Close
Littleton, CO

View Full Profile

I aim to teach my voice and violin students music theory so that they can become better sight readers, and performers. This also helps many of my students in auditions! :)

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.

Can you imagine being able to understand the fundamental principles of all music and be able to apply them in your everyday experience of music? It is both possible and rewarding.

Music is built upon very distinct principles and understanding the way it works can help you compose your own, play your instrument of choice better, and even enjoy the music you already listen to more. Studying music theory is a very good way to dive deeper into understanding why music works the way it does.

I have studied music for over a decade. I've played piano for 12 years and developed perfect pitch, music reading and a thorough knowledge of theory from playing it. I have played the trumpet for almost as long and played lead trumpet in jazz band and the wind ensemble. I also have composed music for these groups as well as piano and arranged and transcribed music in various circumstances. I have taken college-level courses in music composition, music theory and music history/traditions.

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

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.
