My son is currently taking online lessons with Lucas and we're both quite happy with the experience so far. My son has been playing tenor for 4 years (currently 10th grade- in concert, jazz and marching bands at school) and had only ever taken live lessons before, but we're finding that online works out well. No extra travel time/hassle, which is great since he doesn't drive yet- just log online from our basement. Lucas had good availability and has been open to reschedule as necessary. Lucas has helped him with pieces for honor band auditions so far with specific feedback and even I can hear the difference in my son's playing.

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.

Sweetest man alive! Very receptive to all of my questions and weird quirks and approached the session from WHAT I NEEDED rather than any sort of cookie cutter pre-planned lesson plan that he does with everyone, which I really appreciated! Really looking forward to growing and learning more from Tony!

These lessons are for my granddaughter. This was our first visit with Rachel and our first voice lesson ever. Rachel made Ally and grandma welcome and feeling secure. Rachel is warm, knowledgeable, and talented. She made our first lesson fun and Ally can't wait to do her first lesson homework and go back to see Rachael and work on more.

She is very talented and very good with time management, friendly and personal. I hope to go far with my new instructor. I'm sure I will.

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!

Schedule a lesson with me! See yourself improve from someone who knows how people think and understands the topics enough to impart the same onto you!

About Zachary
I was about 10 years old when someone taught me my first chords on a guitar, and I fell in love with it. I started getting serious with it when I turned 15, and I am now (14 years later) a full-time musician at a church. When I'm not working, you can usually find me in the mountains, working on my gear, or hanging out with my wife, Claire, and my dog, Cash.

I believe playing guitar should be FUN as well as relaxing - my best memories are of times I was playing guitar, and some of my best friends are ones with whom I've bonded through playing music. I love the idea of not just teaching technical skill, but teaching how to play as an outlet. Music is cathartic, but it has to be taught that way!

Zach is wonderful with my 8-year old son who is a beginner with the guitar and requires some extra time and patience when learning. Zach takes the time and asks the right questions to make the guitar lessons fun and productive for my son. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Zach is a very talented guitarist, but not all guitarists are skilled instructors. Zach is the rare hybrid. My guitar and music theory lessons with Zach were the most effective I've had. He quickly got to know my skill level, and tailored my lessons to the things I wanted to accomplish. He made learning both music theory and guitar approachable and interesting.

Even better, he doesn't just teach you the mechanics of playing guitar. He will show you how to really put soul into your playing.

I highly recommend booking a lesson with Zach.
