About Chelsea
Let's make some music!!!

“Music can change the world because it can change people.”
―Bono

“Where words fail, music speaks.” ―Hans Christian Andersen

Here's the why and how:
As an educator, I've had experience teaching both young children and adults in many settings, whether it be in a classroom, small group lesson, or one-on-one. I pride myself on providing lessons that are uniquely individual and foster a students strengths while also building on their weaknesses. The best part about being a music educator is that I get to share my love of music with all of my students. With that said, whether you are a beginner who's interest has been sparked, or you have aspirations of becoming a professional musician I can help you there!

Lessons are catered to each student and are conducted in a supportive environment where students ar
e encouraged to take risks, try new things, make mistakes, and most importantly be themselves.

I value the time I have with my students and expect each student to come prepared to each lesson with an open mind and willingness to work. With music, the best results come to those who put in 100% both during lessons and during individual practice time. This is key in any musical pursuit. Overall, I want lessons to be enjoyable while still maintaining a sense of progress for the student.

Here's a little more about me:
In 2005 I made my operatic debut in Italy with Operafestival di Roma in their main stage production of Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro. While in Rome, I was also featured in Pergolesi's Stabat Mater. Over the years I've been featured as a soloist in other concert and oratorio works such as Villa-Lobos's Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5, Rutter's Requiem, and Mozart's Requiem.

Along with my classical training, I've taken on several roles in musicals such as, The King and I, Guys and Dolls, Oklahoma, and The Boyfriend. I am an honored NATS (National Association for the Teachers of Singing) competitor, Peabody Scholarship recipient, and Bland Music Scholarship recipient. Recently, I had the opportunity to work with the Richmond Philharmonic Orchestra on their spring and summer concert series and was asked to perform the National Anthem and God Bless America at Game 2 of the ALDS during one of the MLB's 2014 postseason games (Baltimore Orioles vs. Detroit Tigers). When I'm not singing, you may find me enjoying a run through the neighborhood, or enjoying some time with my cat CJ.

I earned both my undergraduate and graduate degrees form the Peabody Conservatory of Music of the Johns Hopkins University.

I have had the pleasure of working with Chelsea for the last six years at a summer music camp that is sponsored by my church in Peachtree City Georgia. Chelsea is one of our Artists-in-Residence and leads vocal workshops, coaches vocalists, performs with the praise team, and also performs solo material in her presentations. This past year she served as worship leader where she directed over 100 children (ages 5-11), teen and adult volunteers in vocal worship. Her enthusiasm for music is infectious and she brings a fresh approach to the music that is presented at each encounter. She is able to establish a rapport with students of all ages making them comfortable and engaged in the music.
During our week-long camp, Chelsea and other professional musicians present a beautiful concert for the public where classical works are performed. Chelsea treats the audience to sacred and spiritual works and has developed a devoted following of patrons who return annually to hear her perform.

I love Chelsea!!!!! She has helped widen my range and has introduced me to opera singing. That is something that I thought I could never do but she is so patient with me and has made the entire time fun!! Her home is very welcoming and relaxing; it is very conducive for learning.

Autumn is an amazing teacher that can successfully relate to all age groups and nurture their musical education accordingly. My daughter has been taking lessons from Autumn for years and has developed beautifully during this time. Autumn also incorporates performance while teaching so that skill is also learned along with playing. We have really enjoyed Autumn as a teacher and are thankful we found her!

About De'Anza
As an active artist and graduate of Los Angeles College of Music, I believe that teaching is much more than a student learning to play their instrument. It's about creating a fun environment where students not only get a solid musical foundation but are also encouraged to express themselves creatively. I only take on a limited amount of students so that my attention is fully focused on each lesson.

Laura is an amazing teacher - I could see it right away - and my daughter really opened up to her. It seems, however that my daughter may not be ready to study the piano just yet. We bought a 5-lesson package, so we will see if that changes between now and then. Either way, Laura was a great choice for our first piano instructor!

About Megan
I am an experienced and well-rounded musician of nearly 22 years. I have studied the piano, cello, and clarinet throughout my life and am currently a freelance performer in Colorado Springs. I have taught professionally since 2009.

I attended the University of California, Santa Barbara where I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music, Clarinet Performance in 2013. I received a GPA of 3.3 and studied and performed both clarinet and cello. In 2015, I graduated from California State University of Sacramento with a Single Subject Teaching Credential in Music with a 4.0 GPA. I mainly performed clarinet at the university, many local ensembles, chamber music, and I even had the opportunity to perform abroad in the United Kingdom in 2016.

I taught elementary band with the San Juan Unified School district from 2013-2015. While I was pursuing
my teaching credential, I student-taught in Davis Joint Unified School District from 2014-2015. Then, I was employed with Twin Rivers Unified School District from 2015-2017, where I had the privilege to teach elementary general music and choir to students learning English as a second language, students of special needs, and in addition, students from very low income homes. Most recently, I taught elementary general music, choir, and band with the Galt Joint Union Elementary School District from 2017-2018.

I recently moved to Colorado Springs because my husband is a newly commissioned officer with the United States Air Force Academy Band, stationed at Peterson Air Force Base here in Colorado Springs. We have loved our experience so far in Colorado and love to explore the outdoor activities and sight-seeing in our free time.

Megan is an excellent musician & yes, a kind and gentle person. But, please know, she is one of the most self-motivated students I ever encountered! Performed recital not required at an extremely high level of musicianship - and after graduation, successfully pursued a performance career! I’m certain that she’s great at sharing her knowledge - but also her enthusiasm is extremely contagious! Whether clarinet, cello, or piano, you (or your student) must experience her joy of music and of life in general!
