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.

My son only likes rap music, but Shannon made the whole session fun and he enjoyed every minute of it, even though it wasn't rap!

About Dave
I own a local music/art/production institution which hosts lessons for many instruments and artistic pursuits. Personally, I've been teaching for over 17 years, and I teach beginner to advanced students in instruments like guitar, bass, piano/keys, voice, and drums, and depending on your needs, our studio offers a variety of professional teachers that teach all woodwind, brass, and stringed instruments.

I also am an online teacher for a the world's biggest web platform for guitar instruction, and teach lessons alongside those in Berklee alumni, Musician's Institute, as well with many very famous artists that are now in the music business.

Though I've had the fortune to work with some of the best in studios, as a songwriter, and player, and in education, both professional and informal, I love to teach entry level players up through
the intermediate levels the most. I enjoy watching people discover things for the first time, and in my teaching I really do my best to craft my lessons to the needs of the students. My primary aim in teaching is that I would cultivate in my students a love for music and learning. With these two things in place, a student can go on to be and learn anything.

Join me and my studio. We'll have a great time, and we'll get you to your goals while we're enjoying the journey of music together!!

About Karney
I believe the key to the success of the student is that they enjoy what they are doing and gain confidence through the skills they have worked hard to develop.

Several of my students have auditioned for and were accepted as the sole guitar seat in the junior high, high school, and college jazz bands. A few of my younger students received honors in their grade school music programs.

Over the past seven years, I have had three different guitar teachers. Karney is by far my favorite. The thing that really sets him apart is that he made me love playing guitar. I liked it before, but Karney actually taught me what I wanted to learn. This motivated me to practice the songs and eventually allowed me to play guitar at several weddings, both with Karney and by myself. He always goes the extra mile in my instruction by looking on his own time for cool new songs we can play. I know going into every lesson that I will have a good time and learn something new.

About Joseph
I am first and forever a musician and I want to inspire the love of learning and playing music within all those I encounter. I have a degree in Musical Theatre from Western Carolina University, and I've been diligently studying music since I was a child. From me, you will learn multiple styles and work with both written music and music played by ear. I expect a great deal from my students and I hope they expect the same from me.

If music be the food of love, PLAY ON!

About Dan
I studied guitar for 7 years through private instruction from a great teacher who not only taught me guitar and music theory, but taught me to teach it. I eventually began instructing alongside him at the music store where I learned, accumulating over 30 students, ranging in age from 10 - 70 (never too late to start!). I think what I love most about teaching is reliving the excitement of learning all over again with my students. Music is a rewarding venture, well worth the trip! Feel free to click on the "Ask Dan a Question" button near the top of the page - I'd love to hear from you!

Dan is a uniquely awesome dude that is super well rounded and smart musician . From my experience it seems as though he could teach almost any genre and a player at any level and his lessons are very fun. He leads a very interesting life and has a lot of strange hobbies like storm chasing !

Dan has been my guitar teacher ever since I was a little kid. Granted there was a period where I didn't take lessons from him for 6 years or so but when I wanted to start them back up he was very willing to do so!. His knowledge on guitar is incredible and I wouldn't recommend anyone else!. If you want to learn to play guitar and learn about music in general, Dan is your man!.

About Victoria
Hey, I have been playing the violin for 24 years and have loved teaching students along the way. I started teaching in high school, and have had several students since. Currently I am teaching a 4 year old and an 8 year old.

I am a licensed Special Education Teacher and have worked with students with various disabilities for the past 7 years. I am trained in applied behavior analysis and have used it in private and group settings.

Teaching music is a fantastic merge of my two passions in life. I perform regularly in my church congregation, and can also play the piano and trombone. I am currently learning how to play the organ. I have participated in several large orchestras and have taken private professional lessons for 20 of my 24 years of playing.

I have a very flexible and casual style of teaching. I get to know the student
and their (if applicable) parents, and then tailor lessons to fit their needs. That means I am willing to teach in my home, at your home, or online. I am also willing to use toys and games for very young students who are wiggly.

Perfect practice makes perfect playing. I believe in starting with form and care of the instrument, and then moving into theory right away. Unless their is a recital or perform coming up, I prefer to spend up to 20-40% of a lesson on music theory. This will ultimately lead to a more well rounded musician and allow for greater creativity as a mature musician.

About Zo
I love teaching violin and viola to students of all ages and levels! I have extensive teaching experience ranging from beginning learners as young as 3 years old, to the older adult student learning for the first time, or bringing the violin or viola back into their lives. Prior teaching positions also include collegiate level instruction at Drake University (Iowa), Grinnell College (Iowa), and Richland College (Texas) as well as instruction within the Drake University Community School of Music, and after-school group classes at Montessori schools. I enjoy teaching students at all levels, competitive, or non-competitive. I incorporate Suzuki Method principles and repertoire into my teaching, but I also have experience with a range of traditional methods that suit students of different needs and goals. I am always interested in serving th
e student first and in creating an open dialogue with students and parents on what I believe their technical and musical needs are in order to meet our goals together as student and teacher.

About Joseph
I am a touring musician who has traveled the country and world with my bluegrass band, Head for the Hills, for the last 15 years. I graduated from the University of Colorado, Denver in 2010 with a bachelors degree in Music and Entertainment Industry Studies, with a focus in music business.

I now live in Fort Collins, Colorado with my partner, Allie, and our two rescue chihuahuas. I'm always thrilled to teach what I've learned and figured out over my years of touring on students of all ages and skill levels.

I teach out of the Music District here in Fort Collins, a state-of-the-art, beautiful space located in the heart of downtown. I'm most versed in bluegrass and classical styles, but I'm open to exploring any genre a student has interest in, including amplified and electric violin styles.
