About Mark
Mark L.
I was born in California but raised in the sleepy town of Beaverton, Oregon, enmeshed in massive groves of pine and poplar trees and long, cool rainy days. I entered into the world of creativity and music when I was just thirteen by composing poetry and song lyrics, and began dabbling with my sister's used classical guitar when I was 15. From there, I taught myself simple songs by composers like Neil Young, America and Crosby Stills and Nash and developed an interest in rock and blues. I began taking lessons in guitar and voice and was completely dedicated to the guitar never missing a day of practice for over 6 years.
I began performing in my teens playing at parties, small clubs and coffee shops. I specialized in songs with strong vocal parts and worked diligently at perfecting my singing voice and my ability to accompany m
yself smoothly and precisely. I started getting more involved with harder rocking bands such as Pearl Jam and the Foo Fighters and prided myself with the ability to match the vocal parts in both accuracy and intensity. I raised the level of professionalism up on my own writing skills as well and publishing a lyrical device in a poetry publication known as “In Dappled Sunlight.” I also enjoying some radio airplay for one of my songs and was fortunate enough to open for the illustrious Paul Kantner and Jefferson Starship in an acoustic set in Denver, Co.
Although my formal education was in Psychology and Counseling, I continued taking lessons in guitar and voice while simultaneously refining my sound and my skills. I also began teaching during this time working with students from 5 to sixty-five and focusing on acoustic guitar skills as well as vocal training and most of all, finding enjoyment in music. To me, teaching is an integral part of music as I truly believe that the gift of music is wasted unless its shared with others. Seeing a student realize his or her musical dreams is one of the greatest joys that I have experienced as a musician and I'm dedicated to the teaching process for life. I'm also dedicated to performing and to this day I have done over 1000 shows, playing the coziest of street corner pubs to big festivals with thousands of people present. I feel that this performance experience in combination with over 20 great years of teaching has made me the highly qualified instructor that I am today.
Although there are many singer/songwriters, I feel I am unique in that I strive to incorporate power and passion into the simplest of musical pieces and have learned how to teach this process to others. I feel that finding the passion in music, whether it be rhythm or lead guitar or voice, can make the difference between being a mediocre musician and a great one regardless of your skill level. I feel I have the insight and patience as well to work with anyone who has the desire and dedication to become a great musician.
I now live in the beautiful town of Fort Collins, Colorado where I both perform and teach with regularity and also operate my counseling practice where I specialize in helping children and adults work through anxiety and depression. I hope to work with each of you in the near future and help you to achieve the lofty musical goals that you have set out for yourself. Mark

*** Lesson Details ***
Simply stated, students can expect what they're willing to contribute to the learning process. At least half of learning is done before or after the lesson during the student's practice time so the time in between lessons is extremely important. Although I am a laid back instructor, I also have high expectations of the student and will define those in the first lesson. The curriculum is based on years of teaching experience and will be tailor-made to your current age, development and experience level. The word "dedication" is an important one here as well because if you're dedicated, then you 'll become a life-time learner and musician rather than a part time participant. So, after 3-6 months you may learn almost nothing or you will become a proficient player, it's all up to you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
loft 400 sq feet open, airy multiple instruments seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring instruments although I would hope they also have some of their own as well.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in manifesting powerful dynamics in voice and performance, specifically in blues, rock, alternative and folk music. I also incorporate some of the Alexander technique into some of my teaching (no, I am not certified in Alexander but have participated in some of the classes).

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.

About Scotty
I am currently studying clarinet performance at the University of Northern Colorado where I study under two of the best clarinetists in Colorado: Dr. Lauren Jacobson and Ms. Michelle Orman.

At the University of Northern Colorado, I am currently the principle clarinetist for the University's Symphonic Band (which is the university's middle band), and I have played with the Wind Ensemble (the top band at the University). In the past, I have also been apart of a clarinet trio known as the Jade Clover Trio with two of my collegues as well part of a clarinet choir that has performed in recitals and concerts at the university.

I am new to teaching and feel comfortable teaching beginning to intermediate students. I have been playing clarinet for over ten years and have played a variety of styles from classical to 20th century. My goal as a t
eacher is to instill a love of music into young people's minds and give them the skills necessary to pursue music if they choose.

As well as teaching clarinet, I can also give you lessons on music theory and aural skills training that will be essential as you continue your studies in music. If you have any questions at all, feel free to shoot me a message!

About Glenn
Hey there! Want to learn that song that's been stuck in your head? I can help! Teaching and music are my passions! I teach from a modern and industry-based approach. No matter the learning style, I am confident I can teach my students to have a deep love and knowledge of music.

I love to perform guitar any time I get the chance. I have been very involved in playing worship at multiple churches for years. I was a worship leader, and I continue to volunteer almost every week!

In addition to worship, I have played in many small rock and metal bands. I have also played guitar in the pit of a full orchestra and in a competitive winter percussion ensemble.

I am currently a recording arts major at the University of Colorado Denver! I am currently engaged in multiple recording projects and recorded my first official single this summer
.

Though guitar is my main instrument, I also play drums, bass, trumpet, mandolin, a little bit of banjo, piano, and I sing!

About Alexander
My name is Alex and I am 24 years old. I recently graduated from college and moved west. I have been playing guitar for 11 years and in the past couple of years started to teach myself piano. I have loved music ever since I can remember. Classic rock is what really got my into guitar as a middle schooler. Due to the influence of my dad's favorite bands as well as the video game Guitar Hero I found interest in the instrument. I started out learning on my own, using the internet, and gained a basic understanding of the instrument. After about a year of "learning" guitar on my own, my parents enrolled me in lessons from a family friend. It was through his incredible teaching that I really became the guitar player I am today. I found that the direct guidance of someone who knows the instrument is crucial to developing as a guitar player. Afte
r years of lessons I decided that I would love to someday teach guitar to others who were excited to learn.

I have taught lessons to family, friends, and a few neighbors in the past couple of years. Both of my parents are school teachers and I have always felt I would enjoy teaching a subject that I am passionate about. Guitar is that subject for me. During my lessons we will spend time on the methods, techniques, and theory of music/guitar as well as learning songs selected by you. I think that learning should be enjoyable, so if you take lessons from me I guarantee it will be a good time.
