About Shannon
I hold a Bachelors of Education in Music from Florida Atlantic University. I have been teaching music for the last 4 years to students of all ages (5-65 and up). I have experience teaching in public schools in a classroom environment! Finally I am a trained music together teacher teaching in Boulder, CO.

Music has a way of reaching us all and helping us become more sensitive, compassionate, creative people. The study of music has been linked to better test scores, more creative minds, and increased critical thinking abilities. For adults returning to music or picking it up for the first time can be a rewarding hobby, a hidden passion or desire, or a change of schedule.

Music can be for anyone!

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are designed for each individual student. No two students learn the exact same way, so no two lesson
s will be exactly the same. I expect students to practice and be prepared for every lesson and be ready each and every time to learn something new. "Perfect practice makes perfect."

All piano students should be prepared begin to learning in the classical style. This course of study covers all the basics necessary to study all genres of music and will insure students learn the rudiments and technique needed for more difficult music. Piano students will be exposed to different styles of music as they progress and will also study and practice music theory, ear training, sight reading and learn about the history of music.

Voice students will be exposed to classical voice technique as well as music of their own style choice. Like piano, selections made are meant to teach the techniques involved in singing in a healthy and supported manner. Voice students will also be exposed to ear training, sight-singing, music theory and music history and will not just be singers but well rounded musicians.

**I only accept voice students 10 years of age and older and prefer ages 14 and older. As the voice is part of body it is subject to the changes involved with growing up and is still "growing" with the student. Younger students will be on a case by case basis.

*** Studio Equipment ***
It is recommended for voice students to have a recording device readily available as well as a keyboard or piano. Students/parents will be responsible for the purchasing of any music books through the teacher when required.

A piano or keyboard will be required for all piano students for practice purposes. Students/parents will be responsible for the purchasing of any music books through the teacher when required.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students will need access to a piano or keyboard (88 keys preferably weighted) for all piano and voice lessons. It is also recommended for voice students to have a recording device readily available. Students/parents will be responsible for the purchasing of any music books required.

*** Specialties ***
Specialize in teaching beginning to intermediate piano age 5- and up
Have experience working with special needs children.

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!

Tony is great! He's very patient and makes his students feel very relaxed so they can focus on there singing. I would advise taking the 45 to 1 hour lessons. 30 mins. is not enough.

About David
Hi! My name is David and I love to teach piano. Music is my favorite thing ever. Performing, accompanying, teaching, listening, anything with music, I'm in hog heaven. Every kind, any genre. I love 'em all, yes, even country.

I teach both pop styles (rock, r&b, jazz, etc.) and classical (Debussy, Beethoven, Bartok, etc.). If you just want to learn some keyboard skills together with theory (like for producing) but you're not interested in necessarily *reading* music, I'm one of the few piano teachers that's ready, willing, and able to teach you how to play without tying everything to musical notation. Or, I can teach you to rock some Shostakovich. Or accompany your choir. Or write songs. I have no agenda other than helping you grow as a musician. What path that takes is entirely up to you.

I'm a caring and empathetic teac
her, and I make learning fun! Questions? Please ask!

About Rachel
Hi there! My name is Rachel and I am a music teacher looking for students in Arvada, Wheat Ridge, Golden, and Westminster. I also teach online lessons. I teach flute all levels, beginning/intermediate clarinet, and beginning/intermediate piano. I have taught private and group lessons on these instruments for seven years. I also received my Bachelors of Music in Music Education from the University of Redlands in 2005. I have a Professional Colorado Teaching License and I taught elementary general music, band, and choir for nine years.

I teach students of all ages for half hour, 45 minute, and hour lessons. I want my students to enjoy learning their instrument, so I teach them what they want to learn and let them chose songs that they want to play. I believe that music lessons should be fun as well as educational. I create an atmos
phere where making mistakes helps you learn so my students are not afraid to make mistakes. I am very enthusiastic about teaching music and I love it when my students master new skills. I have taught beginning students to read music and become accomplished on their instrument. I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your musical goals!

My son began piano lessons with Rachel nearly two years ago and we have been very happy working with her. He has progressed steadily and is continually challenged to improve. She selects musical pieces that fit his personal interests as well as more traditional pieces with increasing complexity. We hope to continue learning with her for many more years to come.

My 9-yo daughter has had Rachel as a piano teacher for the past 1.5 years. Rachel has always been professional, punctual, and an excellent communicator when it comes to things like rescheduling lessons. My daughter has advanced in piano quite a bit—I attribute much of that to the music Rachel offers. My daughter has played the themes from Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars (music she knows and is excited to learn!) along with more classical pieces (e.g., Bach). We are very happy with Rachel!

About James
Hello prospective students,
My name is James and I am offering my services as a teacher and a mentor for woodwinds. My main instrument is saxophone but I do play and practice the flute, clarinets, and trumpet.
My musical background began when I was 11 years old. I decided to learn how to play the saxophone. I played the saxophone my entire educational career which includes middle school through college. I have participated in concert bands, jazz bands, and marching bands. I had a brief stint in which I picked up piano lessons but was unable to continue due to hardships.
After graduating with my masters degree with an unrelated education I decided to move to New Orleans to pursue my dream of playing professionally. I lived in New Orleans for five years. I started my own bands and I also participated in other bands. I have very serious
performing experience and am able to approach music not only as a performer but as a professional. I do not constrict myself to playing jazz. This is a misconception that all saxophones strictly play jazz. Let's work together to end the stigma!
I am extremely confident in saying that I have unique particularity that will distinguish me from any other musician on this website. That particular trait is that I have confronted some of the most challenging musical scenarios due to my willingness to fail and try. This is one characteristic that I have seen the majority of musicians lack. I approach music not only in a practical and educational way but also as a method of practicing my spirituality and as a way of molding my character for good.
That being said my ultimate objective as a teacher would be to instill in you the discipline and knowledge to where you will feel confident to not need a continuing tutor. I will give you the skills and tools needed for self development. Any tutor or teacher should only be needed to give you the basics and when needed to assist with a complex or challenging scenario. If you want a person that has actual experience playing music professionally and academically then I am your go to guy. I will not waste your time or your money and I will not charge ridiculous prices for lessons. I can and will tutor any age.
Gratefully,
James
