About Kevin
I truly enjoy teaching. I've taught in the public school classroom for 11 years. Teaching music is so so much FUN! And it should be fun for the students to learn. When I'm teaching I tell all my students that if they don't enjoy and smile about something, then we need to change something.

I would love to start lessons with you soon.

I was out of town when my 15-year old son had his lesson with Kevin, so I sent a text to my son to find out how it went. "He is the best guitar teacher ever!!" my son replied. I think that says it all.

About Alexios
I am a classically trained multi instrumentalist and composer who loves to rock&roll. I have performed all over the world on cruise ships, and I have recently settled in Denver to focus on teaching and creating new music.

I received my formal education from the Berklee College of Music, and I received my informal education in Spain studying the art of flamenco with the gypsies themselves.

I specialize in classical/flamenco acoustic guitar as well as NeoClassical style electric guitar. I have developed a highly effective method which, when followed correctly, gives a very high level of playing in a relatively short amount of time.

Finding a teacher who has been down the path you are planning to go take can save you an enormous amount of time. I have been down many paths so far, and I specialize in finding the simplest route pos
sible for each individual student with respect to their own musical goals and dreams.

About Adam
According to Vintage Guitar Magazine I am "looking to bring a new sound to instrumental guitar music" and that my original songs are "a memorable mix of country, jazz, rock and soul that transcends all genres." As a sideman, my resume includes numerous tours with national acts and I've also had songs on SiriusXM Radio.

And I love teaching and sharing my knowledge of music! My teaching background has been with all ages and all levels of students. I've had great success with getting beginners off the ground and helping them play the music they enjoy. Nothing is off-limits whether it be pop songs, fingerpicking, metal anthems, country pickin', jazz standards, blues improvisation -- you name it.

I don't have a "method" but rather tailor our sessions to your individual needs. Everyone is different and I spend the time preparing material
that works for YOU.

*Dec 2018* update -- I have a built up a great student roster and am very full right now. My after work/school slots during the week are full so any lessons would have to be mornings or weekends.

I met Lori at a recent voice competition where she was the designated pianist for my division. She rehearsed patiently, returned texts promptly, and kept a steady, cheerful attitude through two days surrounded by stressed-out singers. As for her playing, she performed challenging repertoire with grace and disciplined understatement that made it clear she was there to help us shine. It's hard for me to overstate just how good an accompanist she is.

About Devlin
Hey y’all! I am a graduate student at the University of Denver working towards a Master of Music in Horn Performance. I earned a Bachelors in Instrumental Music Education from Arkansas State University in May 2018, and I just recently relocated to the beautiful state of Colorado. I have been teaching lessons for a little over 5 years.

I have performed in over 20 states as well as Northern Ireland, England, and Germany. The next place on my list is Switzerland! I love to mentor students who aspire to share the gift of music with others. Music is one of the most rewarding professions and hobbies, and I would be happy to help you both improve your skills and find opportunities to further your musical experiences. In the end, it is all about becoming your best musician.

Some of my interests outside of music include animals, traveling
, and hiking. I am very passionate about both teaching and playing the French horn. If you have any questions for me, please feel free to ask! Also, if my times do not work for you but you are interested in taking lessons, don’t hesitate to ask if I can meet at another time. My schedule can be relatively flexible.

Devlin was a lot of fun and very patient, and we're looking forward to the next lesson. (Garrett is brand new to the French horn this school year). Thanks Devlin!

About Cynthia
I have 20 years of experience teaching acting, voice and diction. I am also a director and have auditioned hundreds of actors for stage work, so I know what works and what doesn't in an audition!

I've worked with both academic and professional theatre across the country. I use a variety of methods as I believe that achieving authenticity on stage is a very personal journey no one method works for everyone. I also believe that "authenticity" is meaningless without the skills needed to make your work clear and affecting for an audience. So, I always incorporate physical and vocal techniques alongside deep personal connection to character. This approach will give you a firm foundation that can be equally effective on stage or on camera. Serious commitment is the foundation of good acting and I believe that ANYONE can be taught to be great

Cynthia is a terrific theater artist. She directed a reading in New York of a solo performance piece that I wrote, so I experienced her as both a playwright and a performer. Our work together was a rich, meaningful collaboration. As a director, she is a keen listener and gives excellent feedback in service of the story. I highly recommend working with her!

About Nabin
Nabin, a renowned face amongst the Coloradans is a classical tabla virtuoso of the highest order. His consistently brilliant and exciting performances have not only established him as one of the prominent musicians in his own country, Nepal but gained him worldwide fame. His deep understanding of different traditional styles of tabla playing, tonal quality, clarity and ability to collaborate with different genres of music makes him different from regular percussionists and it’s no surprise that he’s the favorite accompanist for many musicians and dancers.

Music was always an essential part of his life since his childhood days, and Tabla is the medium by which he was introduced to the world of music and rhythm. In combination with the guidance of his Guru Shree Rabin Lal and inspired by brother Rajendra, Nabin began learning tabla at th
e age of eight. To this day, he still views himself as a learner in an ever-expanding exploration of the beauty in musically interpreting dynamic rhythmic sounds while performing the Tabla.

While pursuing his academic studies in music, Nabin was awarded an ICCR scholarship for his Master’s degree in Music. He completed his Master’s degree from Gandharva Music University with the highest score in the year 1998. During his stay in India, he got an opportunity to further develop his knowledge with some of the greatest musical masters/gurus such as Ustaad Shri Faiyaaz Khan and Shri Tansen Shrivastav. Upon completion of a Master’s Degree from Gandharva, Nabin got an opportunity to further his musical studies under the guidance of the greatest tabla maestro of all time, Taalmani Pandit Sureshji Talwalkar, in Mumbai.

Some of his albums are, Raaganubhuti (Hindustani Classical), Murchchhana(Jazz Fusion), Re-drums (Traditional Nepali Drums and Tabla). He is also a founder of a successful band named Murchchhana, a Jazz classical fusion band. Nabin was also teaching at Tabla at Tribhuvan University one of the oldest and reputed universities of Nepal.

Currently, Nabin is residing in the USA and is teaching and performing as a full-time musician. He has also launched a music school in Colorado, Aum School of Music, He has formed a Classical fusion band named “Jam Key Jam” with amazing Musician Bijay Lal. They perform Hindustani music, traditional Nepalese music, fusion and collaborates with many artists from all around the world.

I started taking lessons from Nabin from the age of 12 till the age of 19. I was encouraged by my father to take lessons from him as he saw it as a great opportunity. At first, I was not the most enthusiastic about it since tabla was an instrument I had never heard about. After taking lessons from him, not only did I fall in love with tabla, but I became obsessed with it. Nabin teaches tabla in such a way that it is extremely difficult to not be intrigued by it. He is the most patient teacher and will teach you in a personalized manner. It does not matter who you are, what your skill level is, if there is anyone that can teach you the tabla in the most complete way, it's him. Tabla is a difficult instrument to master. Thus, it is important that you find a teacher that is understanding, patient, and works with you carefully to master the smallest details. Nabin is that person. He never gets frustrated with his students and encourages them in every part of the journey.

It's not just tabla skills you will gain from Nabin. You will gain appreciation for music, the ability to become more confident in yourself, the desire to become a hard worker, and gain numerous valuable life lessons as I have. He is the greatest teacher I have had without a question and there is no other guru I would recommend.
