About Laura

Hi, I’m Laura, and I want to tell you right now, you CAN sing and you SHOULD sing. From birth until death, the voice is our primary vehicle for expression. When you take a voice lesson, you are learning more than just good vocal technique (though that’s important). You’re learning about yourse

Private Piano Teacher

My youngest piano student is 3 and is doing incredibly well! My oldest student was 78 and had always wanted to learn to play. I can help you with your piano goals from beginner to advanced, from the basics of reading music and playing a song for your family to performance auditions and everything in between.
I use a number of methods, however, I am open to help you learn through a method of your choice if you have one you enjoy. I will guarantee to having you play a familiar song within one month!

Amber has changed my voice and passion for music in unexplainable ways. Just after one lesson, you can start to appreciate singing and professionalism related to the career like you never thought you would have before. She is patient and intuitive. I would highly recommend her if you plan on taking singing and music serious throughout your life!
Amelia
Amber is the most encouraging and insightful teacher. I have improved immensely on my singing ability - resonance, tone, pitch, even education on the music. She is open to doing pieces that I am passionate about and always gives me a challenge. I have absolutely loved this experience with Amber and am excited to see what the future holds!
Tara
Amber is a sweet and supportive teacher. She teaches at the pace of the student. For my son, she is very open to letting him select music that fits his interests, which keeps him engaged in his piano studies.

Private Piano Teacher

I’m available to teach private lessons for teens and adults interested in learning piano for the first time, or who want to improve their skills. My strengths are patience, enthusiasm, and an unusual way of approaching piano. I’m not famous or particularly interested in becoming famous, so if that’s your goal, I’m not the right teacher for you. I strongly believe everyone can play piano, and should. There are so many ways to access the piano -- sight reading music, improv, composition, accompaniment, playing by ear -- and whatever way works for you is the right way. Finally, I believe it’s never too late to start learning something new, and your bucket list should not wait until you retire.

About Kristen

I started dance later in life -- tap at 19 and ballet at 31 -- because I was so tall and awkward as a child. It never occurred to me that people my size could be dancers. I fell in love with dance as an escape from a stressful job teaching high school history. I saw such changes in myself the more I

More than incredible first experience, no question I will return and invest more time with her. She is extremely warm, personable and really knows her stuff. So happy to have found her!
Miranda
Kristen is a human that makes her students feel immediately at ease. She is kind, quirky, and hilarious, but more importantly, she is patient and meets students where they are to ultimately fulfill their potential and their goals. I first started taking tap classes from Kristen a few years ago as a nervous adult (25 yo) seeking a bare bones beginner tap class. Since then, having incorporated exercises, games, and routines to awesome music, I have come leaps and bounds, built up my courage and confidence, and am proud to officially feel part of the tap community. If you’re looking for an excellent teacher, regardless of experience level, look no further!

Private Piano Teacher

Every student has unique needs. Any student will succeed if the instruction is tailored to their learning processes. Since every student learns in a different fashion, it is necessary to use both traditional methodology and Suzuki methodology while teaching. Each student is placed in the program and course that best suits their learning needs. I expect my students to attend the lesson every week, complete all assignments, and listen to directions.

Private Piano Teacher

Coming from a musical family I started piano at a young age. Continuing my studies in college, I was blessed with some fine instruction in both performance and the art of teaching both adults and students. Piano/Keyboard puts into practice all that is leaned in classroom. I strive to make all music encounters and lessons as enjoyable and enriching as possible, with a special emphasis on what the student is enjoying and wanting to learn.

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

Had a wonderful first lesson today. I am very excited and looking forward to my next lesson. Ronald is a wonderful teacher and person.
Marjorie S.
I am thrilled with Ronald. In my opinion, I definitely having the best and most experienced music teacher in the state of Colorado. He was in contact with me a few times before my first lesson, so I already was already comfortable with Ronald when he came to my door. Ronald has a lifetime of experience, and he seems to have never met a stranger. He is easy-going and knowledgeable. He put me at ease as he sat down to play and teach me about my organ for a couple of minutes before we got out the lesson book, and it was my turn. He teaches and repeats and encourages without hurrying to the next step. It was fun.
I'm excited about practicing and my future accomplishments with Ron's expert and encouraging ways of teaching.
Daniel C.
Ron is one of the best piano teachers around. He always came to my house, was cheerful and helpful. He is passionate and paitent with students and has a wonderful method for teaching piano. I highly recommend you use him if your gonna use anyone on this site.

She taught by me piano from 5 years old through my teen years and worked well with me through each learning stage. Her skill and passion for music continue to be an inspiration and I have been able to use what I have learned for both personal pleasure and accompaniment purposes in various settings. Thanks Julie for shaping my life in this way!
Pam
As a home schooling mother, I desired that our children had an opportunity to include musical training in their daily curriculum. When I asked Julie about lessons she readily accepted the challenge to teach in our home. She adapted each lesson to the specific needs of our children & sought to make learning enjoyable. All of them have a very good foundation & love for music & several have & still do play publically.

You meet someone with extreme talent. Maybe its natural, maybe its through thousands of hours of practice and dedication. With Josh, its both. This man knows what he is talking about, from the basics of how to properly place your hands on the piano, to the advanced music theory that makes everything work, he knows his stuff. My only regret is being a broke 20 something because the 8 weeks we worked together I went from novice, with almost no musical history, to someone who has the tools and confidence to continue my musical education on my own.

Id like to thank Josh for his time and patience, it really helped out, so much so that my family took notice of my interest and bought me two books full of sheet music for Christmas!

World Class Piano Music in Denver

By Molly M. - Denver Piano Teacher

Denver is probably not the first city that springs to mind if someone asks you where to find great classical music. New York City, home of the Met, Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall might be your answer. You could also mention any of the great cities of Europe, with institutions such as the Paris Opera, Milan’s La Scala, or the Berlin or Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras. But you might be surprised to learn that Denver has hosted its share of truly exceptional classical musicians, including a number of pianists.

Not only have some great musicians come here to play with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, but they frequently give solo performances as well. As a student at the University of Denver I had the opportunity to attend many wonderful con

...

certs, including concerts and master classes given by a number of fabulous pianists. Musicians like Yefim Bronfman and Richard Goode played recitals in a concert hall literally right across the street from where I was living. Jean-Yves Thibaudet recently played a recital here in Denver just days before playing the same program at Carnegie Hall.

By the time I had the chance to experience these world class performances I had already made my decision to study music and had been listening to recordings of pianists of the same caliber for years. However, there is really nothing like a live performance to move and inspire. I highly recommend taking advantage of the wonderful pianists who come to Denver; it’s an experience to remember and treasure, especially if you are a student taking piano lessons in Denver.

Hearing great pianists inspires me in my continuing study of the piano. I find it just as inspiring to be able to guide others through piano lessons in Denver as they learn to read music, become comfortable at the keyboard, and slowly become pianists in their own right.

For as long as I can remember, music and the piano have been integral parts of my life; parts that bring me great joy. I try to communicate that to each one of the students I have the pleasure teaching piano lessons in Denver. I hope that I can inspire them the way they inspire me.
