Karissa K. Denver, CO

About Karissa

Born and raised in Burley, Idaho, my parents purchased a piano from an auction for my sister and I when I was seven. After a family friend taught me my first scale, I played it non-stop. My parents both decided it was time to invest in lessons so I could learn to play at least more than one thing! With encouragement from my teacher, I began teaching piano lessons during my sophomore year of high school and I have loved it ever since. I have had a lot of experience, teaching children as young as five, as well as adults with no musical background. In 2011, I graduated from Colorado Christian University with a bachelor's degree in Music Ministry. I have been classically trained and my favorite composers are Chopin and Debussy. I've also spent a lot of time playing popular music and in ...

Great teacher for all levels

Karissa is amazing! She works with you right where you are at an makes sure that you are comfortable. She never got impatient with me and my progress, and she helped me find music I actually want to play instead of the boring standards. She works with what time and what day you need, pushes you to be better, and to have confidence! Such a pleasure to work with!

I started taking voice lessons from Jamie kind of on a whim- I had always wanted to learn to sing but I was nervous and kind of shy about it. Right away Jamie made me feel comfortable. He is very encouraging and gives criticism in a positive way. It is obvious that he really loves music and is knowledgeable about many different genres. I love that he focuses on theory and technique- as a beginner these are the lessons that I was looking for. After five lessons I already hear a big difference in my range and my vocal strength as well as my confidence, and I am sure that as I progress he will continue to challenge me. I highly recommend him.

Jamie is an excellent voice teacher. I have learned a lot in the few months I've been taking lessons with him, and feel a lot more confident in my singing. My range and my knowledge of music have definitely improved. At each lesson you do a vocal warm up, go over music theory concepts, and then work on a song. I would definitely recommend Jamie; you will improve and have fun doing it!
Scott M. Denver, CO

About Scott

We learn by teaching. That is why I love to teach, because I love to learn. I have made many great connections while teaching music to people and one of the ways to do that is to work together on a common goal. I started teaching music because during my own studies I have discovered many quick learning strategies that make playing music fun. I teach from my home studio as well as via Skype. Many of my strategies I've discovered on my own. Now I want to share these ideas with you. Scott is a multi-instrumentalist loop master whose music spans a wide range of sounds and genres. With an education in music performance and a reputation for having a good time this laid back musician is no amateur to the music scene. Scott has performed hundreds of shows and numerous festival ...

Scott is an excellent guitar teacher. He makes it fun to learn while gearing the lessons toward the student’s needs. In return, this allows the student to excel in learning the guitar at their own pace. I definitely would recommend Scott as guitar instructor.

wish I had more time for MORE lessons

Scott has been a great teacher, his patience and ability to teach at my pace have been wonderful! I also love that he finds ways to teach music I like.

My only regret is that I don't have more time and money to schedule lessons every week! I hope that changes soon.

I love my Uke, and I love lessons with Scott!

What Are the Best Songs to Sing to Show Off Your Vocal Range?
Many singing teachers agree that one of the most alarming things today is tuning in to television talent competitions and seeing nine-year-olds singing opera. Not only are the arias generally age-inappropriate, but they make vocal demands on the singer that often requires a training period longer than the child has been alive! Less publicly, but equally common, are singers who wrong-foot themselves with inappropriate repertoire at local singing competitions and music festivals. They might pick
Introduction to Reading Violin Tabs
Tablature is a form of musical notation that was invented to make reading music easier for fretted and string instruments like guitar, bass, and violin. The premise is operationally-based, meaning that rather than showing rhythm, duration, and pitch, violin tabs will show the player where and when to place their fingers on the instrument. For an improvising musician, violin tabs allow you to improvise while staying within the chord structure of a song. Tablature-style notation is most commonly
