Offering lessons to all levels, in all genres and styles!
Lessons are catered to the individual student based on their goals and learning styles.
I have special experience and success in working with older students who struggle with tension and pain while playing piano.
I also make it my #1 goal to make music lessons fun and enjoyable! I have never had a student (young or old) complain because they didn't enjoy the lessons.

About Kit
With 2 degrees in music and more than 8 years of teaching experience, I offer piano and voice lessons to any age and any level! I consider the most important aspect of teaching to be creating an environment where a love of music can be discovered and nurtured. Everyone is offered the opportunity to discover and deepen their love of music. I chose to make music my career so that I can guide you on your priceless journey towards becoming a better musician...a better person.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do not use one set curriculum. Instead, I have familiarized myself with a dozen various curriculum, and choose the best fit for each individual student. I am open to using books you already own as supplemental material and encourage students to share their suggestions in selecting music. Every student has different goals, and I tailor t
he lessons to meet them.
Within the first lesson, we will set short and long term goals and lesson plans will be made to help you achieve them.
I provide accompaniment and melody recordings for vocal students to practice with.
Material will be sent home with you to peruse at your convenience. This will include articles from music dictionaries, archives, journals and more to give you an opportunity to become a well rounded musician.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright piano in living room with waiting area for parents so they may sit in on lessons.
Music stand provided for voice lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Some music may be provided by myself and I am also willing to work with certain books the student may already own. There will be at least one book required for purchase. I expect students to have a pencil and notebook at every lesson.
Water is welcome and encouraged for vocal students.

Parking is available on the street directly outside the studio.

*** Specialties ***
Too often I have seen damage caused to the vocal chords from an instructor's lack of knowledge in developing voices. I am proud to offer voice lessons where I specialize in working with young voices that are still maturing!

I provide piano accompaniment for vocal lessons at no additional cost. I also make accompaniment recordings for the students to practice with. This allows me to transpose songs, letting students learn songs that might otherwise be out of their vocal range. It also allows for flexibility in the tempo so students can learn at a slower pace and increase speed as they become more comfortable.

I believe in teaching a well rounded curriculum and therefore introduce my students to the styles of all genres.

I am a 67 yo man who had studied music eons ago. I finally admitted that I missed it and decided to take lessons for the piano. Kit has been an exceptional instructor. She is very knowledgeable and talented. She teaches by guiding me along the way at my own pace. But is not adverse to correcting my errors. She also sends me home with advice on pitfalls to avoid in my practicing. She is patient, friendly, and makes learning very enjoyable. I highly recommend her for piano lessons to students of all ages. Thank you

Only a 1st lesson, but Kit is great with my Daughter. She had 2 months of piano lessons 4 years ago (when she was 8), but picked it up very quickly and was playing songs almost immediately with Kit as her instructor. The sign that it was a success is that upon returning home she went to the keyboard and wanted to practice what she had learned. Highly recommended.

I cannot speak highly enough about Kit! For my wedding, I wanted to surprise Ashleigh by singing a particular song. Not only had I never had singing lessons, but I also had zero confidence in my voice that I could pull this off. Kit is SO PATIENT! She took the time to tailor my lessons to help me learn the song, and weekly tips. She also went out of her way to work with my schedule, since my lessons had to be a secret since it was for a surprise.
When the night of our wedding came along, Kit's patience and teaching paid off- I was confident and comfortable, which made the experience memorable and fun!! It was a part of our wedding we will both always cherish. Thank you very much Kit!!!

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!

About Amber
Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role.
Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.)
I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to continue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production.
Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at the UNT commencement ceremonies. This led to an off
er to tour Italy with the Rome Festival Orchestra. For the next two summers I performed in Copenhagen, Istanbul, Rome and Berlin with the Berlin Philharmonic.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students progress VERY quickly! As a teacher, I can easily identify my students’ strengths and weaknesses, and plan an individualized study course. I will instill a solid set of production skills that will easily serve ANY style of music you choose (from rock to opera.)
I will make for you a personalized recording for you to practice with daily. We will also work on songs you LOVE!
My students will have performance opportunities every 3 months. I will prepare you for college entrance auditions, TV contests, and television appearances. My students make extraordinary progress-I want you to become one of them!

TWO thrilling developments with 2 of Amber's students:

1. One of Amber's young students, aged 7 years old, was chosen Miss Young Colorado...this student used piano as her talent!!! Amber began teaching her young student the piano almost 1 year ago and she won the Talent division of Miss Young Colorado...
2. Another one of my college aged students who has taken 2 lessons per week for 2 years, auditioned for America's Got Talent. He was chosen as one of the Regional Finalists for Colorado."

*** Studio Equipment ***
10x15 dedicated music room, piano, lovely mountain view, mirrors, microphone and sound equipment available for students. The parents of students are welcome to stay in the room with the students, if they choose.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a piano and I will purchase the method book I want the student to use but I do require reimbursement for books and shipping if required. Student provides notebooks and pens.

My daughter is 8 years old and takes piano and violin from Amber. Amber is an amazing teacher! She is kind, listens to my daughter, teaches her the foundational building blocks to play each instrument, teaches her technique, ear training, and is firm enough to progress the lessons quickly. She is a great encourager! My daughter is learning quickly, and already sounds good on both instruments. We love Amber and feel very lucky that we found her!

I had no prior vocal or musical training of any kind--I can't read music--when I began voice lessons with Laura. All I had was a passion since childhood that I finally got the nerve up to pursue. The lessons were a wonderful experience from the very beginning. Voice may be the most challenging instrument to learn, because the teacher can't "play the instrument" to demonstrate technique. Laura has a remarkable talent for communicating vocal techniques and concepts with inventive and vivid visualizations that helped me understand the relationship between my body, my voice, and the sound I produce. I loved the music of Gabriel Faure, but never imagined I could sing it. Laura had all the confidence that I could, and we jumped right in. Faure's beautiful art songs, as well as others by Reynaldo Hahn and Ernest Chasson that Laura introduced me to, are now a part of me. I learned so much in the two years we worked together before Laura returned to her hometown of Denver, and miss her terribly!

My 13 year-old daughter had taken voice lessons from Ms. Laura in Maryland for two years. I have to say my daughter was so lucky to have Ms. Laura as her first voice teacher! When my daughter started to show interest in singing in 2016, she knew very little about singing. Ms. Laura was very knowledgeable, personal and supportive. Ms. Laura taught my daughter about vocal anatomy, how to improve her voice presentation and how to avoid possibility of voice loss, inflammation from overuse or misuse. After several months, my daughter made very impressive progress on her voice range and presentation. It was such a treat when I listened to my daughter practicing singing at home. She was getting better and better every day. I was so proud of my daughter. At the same time, I really appreciate Ms. Laura being such a wonderful teacher. Ms. Laura is very personal. She tried to know my daughter as a teacher and as a friend. Based on each student's personality and strength, Ms. Laura chose music that helps each student to grow, but also focus on what needs to be worked on. Ms. Laura was very flexible when we needed to reschedule lessons. We sure miss her!!

Denver, CO

I play classical, jazz, rock, funk, blues and pop music on the piano. Also, I have improvised musicals on the piano with improv comedy troupes (this is super fun and I would love to teach you how).

In lessons, I focus on learning the proper finger technique and hand placement, good posture, and of course learning how to read music. I can show you lots of different styles of piano playing and help you improve whatever style of playing you're pursuing.

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.

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!

David teaches lessons to me and to my six-year-old son. He has made our piano experience relaxed and fun which had changed the trajectory of my son's attitude toward the piano. He has an ability to gauge what an individual wants out of the experience and enthusiastically be there to make sure that individual gets the most out of it.

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!

All of them have a very good foundation & love for music & several have & still do play publically.

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 currently am a music director at a Catholic church where I sing and play the piano, although my music experience is much more extensive. My primary instrument is the oboe (I have a B.M. degree in oboe performance), but I also play and teach the violin, piano and voice.

As well as music directing and teaching, I am a huge theatre nerd! I love musicals especially and my usual role is director or stage manager. I can offer pre-audition lessons to help you prepare for anything you may have coming up : )
