I have currently been teaching music for over two years and been playing music for over a decade. I believe there are two sides of music; this includes the knowledge of music theory -scales, understanding of chord progressions, etc. But I also believe that there is another aspect of music that involves spontaneity and passion in playing. Understanding these two aspects of music will help any student understand the wonders of music. I enjoy teaching both sides of the music spectrum and encourage students with their separate passions and influence in the musical genre. I teach on a student by student basis, because I believe each individual student is different and the material being covered can be explained in several different. It is my job to help students understand, but more importantly enjoy their journey into music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My favorite thing about teacher is listening to my student's interests. Some teachers treat music like it needs to be a chore or some other form of homework, but I look to work with the student and make sure that him/her are comfortable and are enjoying their experience. You are not going to enjoy music if it feels like a boring task and doesn't apply to you. That is way I make sure, that I work with the student and make sure their satisfied with their experience.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide sheets and prints of what I want the student to learn. They will need to either get a book if I suggest it and also have their own instrument for study.

*** Specialties ***
I like to play many styles, but I grew up with clas
sic rock. I can teach lead guitar for anyone interested. I can also teach classical, rock, pop, and country piano. I am also versed in finger picking for guitar.

My 5 year old son learned rhythms, reading treble and bass clef, scales, hand and finger positioning and much more from Vincent in just 20 lessons. He could teach himself short melodies from his book by the end. He really enjoyed having Vincent come over every week.

I've always been passionate about singing, so much so that I've based much of my life and career around my voice. While I love singing and would say that I was able to cultivate my voice to the point where I'd consider myself talented, there has always been an aspect that I felt I could improve upon. When I first started lessons with James I was amazed with the strides I was taking, as well as how kind, helpful, and encouraging he was. I can honestly say he helped me become the singer I hoped to be.

I have been taking voice lessons with Jamie for about 2 years and counting, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fantastic voice teacher.

I came to Jamie as an amateur wanting to improve my ability and skill in singing, and can absolutely attest my singing ability has grown by leaps and bounds in working with him.

Jamie has been fantastic in teaching me the skills needed to improve, including technique, expanding my vocal range, improving pitch & tone, reading and sight singing music, singing harmony, phrasing, and overall dramatically improving my ear. Jamie does a great job of continuing to raise the bar as I am ready for each next level, so I continue to see a steady rate of growth in my abilities.

Jamie is also great to work with on a personal level. His lessons are a good balance of fun, the right amount of challenging (so you actually improve), & satisfying. His teaching style is helping you walk the walk through specific ways to improve, which is in my opinion the fastest and most quality way to learn. I highly recommend Jamie to those at any skill level!

Outstanding instructor of guitar. He goes above and beyond when it comes to teaching students how to play the guitar. He is very flexible, understanding, knowledgeable, and patient when he delivers his classes. Not only does he teach students how to play the guitar, he also does other things like teaching them how to tune their guitars, how to change keys when necessary to make a song sound better, and how to use a capo when playing the guitar. All of these are above and beyond what most teachers have taught me in the past. I really enjoy taking classes from my instructor.

Denver, CO

My philosophy of music theory is to break it down into bite-size pieces and ALWAYS give an immediate application on the guitar. That way it's not just an empty idea, but something you can see and something you can use.

The chromatic scale is the foundation of my whole method. It's easy to understand and allows you to name ANY pitch ANYwhere on ANY instrument, recognize notes on the staff, and play melodies (or write your own!).

That foundation also gives you access to major/minor scales, modes, pentatonic scales, key analysis, learning songs by ear, soloing...the list is endless!

About S. Parker
Music became my life when I found a dusty guitar in the storage room at age 10. I owe a lot of really cool experiences to the guitar and so many of them center around learning. Teaching is fun and rewarding, but it is also my way of thanking the great teachers I've had.

-Studied Music Theory/Composition at Metropolitan State College of Denver

-Won a scholarship to the 2001 Summer Guitar Program at Berklee College of Music in Boston

-Frequent substitute at Arapahoe Community College (2004-2005)

-Teacher at St. Mary's Academy Middle School (2008-2013)

-Active member of Onsombley guitar ensemble

-Songwriter, Vocalist, Guitarist in The Penny Dreadfuls

-Creator of http://strumbystrum.com

-Takelessons teacher since 2008

*** Lesson Details ***
The best lessons I've ever had were lessons in wh
ich I walked away saying "Man, I never KNEW that!" and it's my goal for you have that experience, too. Whether its how to play that chord or write a melody, how to get the best sound out of those stomp boxes, or when genres like shoegazer and post-rock were invented and what they sound like... there's something to be learned in every lesson.

The most important benefit of taking lessons from me is my experience. I started teaching casually as a teenager and have followed every opportunity since. My passion for music has allowed me to teach private lessons (10+ years), middle school guitar class (including a guitar ensemble), and college-level music theory classes. Extensive experience in writing, recording, and performing has only helped that passion to grow. I've developed a method to blend theory with practice every step of the way, and make the journey fun!

Parker is a great teacher & a really nice guy. I have been working with him for about 18 months, and I have come a very long way in my technical ability as well as my understanding of music theory. He has a very low key, positive approach to our lessons, which makes them relaxing and fun, but at the same time he has the ability to get me out of my "comfort zone" and doing things that are new and challenging, from dabbling in different genres to creating new arrangements of old favorite songs to diving into the theory behind iconic riffs and chord progressions.
He has become a friend and I look forward to all of our online sessions.

As both a piano teacher and a voice teacher I am always teaching music theory. I have been told by professors that I have a very unique way of approaching music theory and offer students multiple ways of learning and understanding the concepts.

AP music theory tutoring
Undergraduate music theory

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.

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.

A favorite subject of mine because it has taken me further than my ear ever could. Now i have many options to choose from when writing music. Studying composition and playing many of the hits in the last 50 years has shown me what works.

About bob
The music heard around my house in my youth had a country twang until Elvis came along and the music rocked and rolled! In the late 60's I heard "Born To Be Wild" by Steppenwolf and I was sold!
While living in Atlanta Georgia during the 80"s I toured with The Original Drifters (Under the Boardwalk/Up On the Roof) and a Supremes cover band called Mocha. They were booked by the William Morris Agency who would actually fly us to gigs around the country! Fun! One weekend would see us in Florida the next in Arizona.
To learn more about music I moved to California and became a student at Musicians Institute of Hollywood. Being exposed to one of the coolest musical environments 24/7 was a dream come true. For my hard work I received a Student of the Year award and was eventually hired to work for the school and became a substitute teacher for
the entire guitar staff which included Scott Henderson, Allen Hinds and Norman Brown.
The staff was encouraged to gig so I toured from California to Nashville with a variety of bands and visited the Caribbean Islands aboard an actual love boat playing jazz and birthday songs! The rock band Exile took me to the Scandinavian countries with a side trip to Switzerland. My dream of letting the music take me places was working out!
Moving to Boulder in 1996 gave me the opportunity to start my own teaching business while also meeting future songwriting partners.
Dennis Wanebo and I produced our 3rd Martian Acres cd €œIII at my Oilpan Studios during 2013 as well as his €œRunning on Gravity cd. Songwriter Lisa Bell and I toured Italy for 3 weeks in 2010 that inspired a co-produced The Italian Project€ cd in 2013.
My songwriting passion is currently being nurtured by working with the Lincoln Avenue Songwriting Society a group of 7 local songwriters who also perform locally and lend support to the art of writing.
I live in Boulder Colorado with my son Max and my wife Kelly. I love to perform, teach, write, record music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Starting from where your knowledge and technique run out I will take you on a path of discovery that will reveal an easier way to play a difficult lick or unlock the secret of what scale to use. Every player is at a different point in their development and my goal is to know your playing well enough to make the next step easy and painless! I have hundreds of PDF files with diagrams and can easily create video of any lick, technique or idea we work upon to help you understand and master.

About Seth
My name is Seth and I offer private lessons for both guitar and bass guitars. Having a wide background of teaching all ages, and heavy experience with young children, I understand that every musician is in a different place. Whether you're just starting out or ready to get back into playing again, we can work together to establish what the best direction is for you.
I hold a bachelors in music performance from the University of Colorado Denver. Before involving myself with local Denver band Wildermiss and other musical projects, I was a member of the Blue Knights World Percussion Ensemble. Having gained that experience I was asked to instruct Rise World Percussion Ensemble where I was the front ensemble caption head. While going through school and my career I have recorded many different audio projects, as well as playing with various e
nsembles and bands.

Lessons can be offered both in my home at your own home within the greater Denver area!
