Kelly Z. Denver, CO

Students will learn to maximize the range, quality, and efficiency of their voice. We will cover repertoire tailored to the individual age, ability, and interests of the student. I like to begin with selecting one foreign language, one English, and one piece of the student's choosing (pop, music theatre, etc.) These lessons include a foundation in classical singing technique, which allows the student to healthily develop the instrument with enough control and flexibility to sing any style of music.

About Kelly

There is a musician and a singer inside every individual and I am here to bring it out! I believe singing can be a vehicle for learning discipline, focus, collaboration, music theory, self-expression, language, interpretation, short-term and long-term goal setting and achievement, musicality, literacy, history, confidence and passion, and I hope to instill these gifts in all of my students. I completed my BA in Music Education from Fort Lewis College, and then moved to Denver to complete my Masters of Music in vocal performance at the University of Denver. During that time I have been blessed with many performance opportunities in choirs, operas, musical theatre, and jazz settings. Favorite roles include Roxie Hart in CHICAGO the musical, Marcellina in Le Nozze di Figaro, and most ...

NICE!

My instructor Kelly Z. is completely professional, made me feel at ease, very knowledgeable, wonderful at communication, fun, and she made me feel comfortable and I would definitely recommend her to others. The "Take lessons" employees were kind and extremely professional. So far my experience has been very rewarding for me.
Andrea Z. Denver, CO

I have been teaching singing for 3 years and my students vary from amateurs to artists who prepare for auditions and take part in performances. Within the first few lessons, you will learn to employ your hearing with new "ears" and gain firmness of tone by means of orienting your practice towards the simple. As we advance, you will gain knowledge of your instrument (your body) through the window of your developing hearing by means of easy exercises. I specialize in opera, but have experience helping singers from every walk of art. I typically start by those difficulties you are most concerned about in your singing. I embrace the opportunity to work with students of all ages and experience levels.

About Andrea

To the potential interested student/parent: Teaching has become a pleasant endeavor that I do with high ethical standards, offering my guidance in a balanced and committed way. (Committed, that is, to the cause of music, and to the timeless fellowship of the human spirit!). I play Piano or Guitar when accompanying my students. Please bring your songs! *** Specialties *** • The Voice (correcting the natural faults of the Voice, dissolving rigidity and confinement of the Voice). • Classical PIANO training. • COMPOSITION. • Music Reading but WITH CONTENT! Not just the mere "code" of notes and rhythm, but the patterns and qualities of music regarded as movement and as character. • Integrative training for the singer including ...

I am so grateful to Andrea....

I have always loved to sing, and sang in several choirs when I was younger. But I had "lost" my voice, and wanted to see if I could recover it. Andrea was wonderful in working with me: I was barely able to release any sound when we started our lessons. Within weeks, Andrea helped me discover how to form the vowels and release the sound. [I have moved out of state, so Andrea only had a limited time to work with me.]

She is passionate about music, and yet very patient with her students. She did not patronize me with false praise when I wasn't getting it, but she still encouraged me. And when I did get it, she was quick to affirm my progress. I strongly recommend Andrea as a voice teacher.

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!
Amber J. Englewood, CO

Singing and performing for an audience has been the love of my life. I have performed in all types of venues from small churches to performing Soprano soloist in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with The Berlin Philharmonic in Berlin, Germany.

Whatever you want to accomplish in your singing, I can help you get there, and enjoy the process along the way!~

About Amber

Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role. Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.) I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to continue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production. Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at ...

Amber is our church's music director and as a member of the worship team I have had the opportunity to observe her interact with students, including my wife. Needless to say, I was quite impressed with her abilities. But, I didn't realize the scope of her wonderful expertise until I began taking voice lessons from her. The awesome thing about Amber is her ability to interact with the student on the student's level. In other words, Amber has the wonderful ability of sharing her musical expertise by teaching in such a gentle, encouraging and patient manner that makes taking lessons from her a joy and privilege. Although, her knowledge of music is second to none, she teaches in such a gracious manner that the student doesn't feel like they are being talked-down-to.

Amber has changed the way I sing in front of people by teaching me to use my diaphragm more for air. I play numerous string instruments now in church along with Amber. She has helped me decipher the keys in music as well as coordinate my playing skills in timing. I have been playing music for over fifty years and I am still learning thanks to Amber. I personally recommend as an instructor for any beginner or a sound musician.
Steve B. Denver, CO

In your vocal lessons I will teach you warm-up vocal exercises, how to breathe properly, solfege (singing syllables), how to find your range, and songs of your choice along with my own suggestions.

About Steve

When I was growing up I thought music was like magic and that only special people with super-human powers could play. I would think to myself, "How are they doing that? I would never be able to play music in a million years!" It wasn't until I was 14 I discovered guitar magazines and a method of reading called guitar tablature that I realized anybody can learn guitar! With determination, patience, and practice I learned as many songs and techniques from my heroes (The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin) as I could. I realized there is so much to learn about music that I could learn something new everyday. This still holds true to this day. I keep digging to find that magic place to which music can take you. It is my goal as a musician and a teacher to help other aspiring musicians (YOU!)

I have had a varied background growing up, from being an Eagle Scout, to holding a black belt in Judo.  Growing up in Arizona and being the youngest of three boys from a very musical family, I found classical music and it became my passion. I began with piano at age 9, while also sang in many church musicals.In 2006 I graduated from Northern Arizona University with two degrees: a bachelors in vocal performance and a bachelors in piano/choral education. At NAU, I sang in many operas and piano recitals and spent three months in Germany teaching choir through the Department of Defense.Shortly after, I graduated with a masters in vocal performance from Washington University in St. Louis. The studies I learned from Wash U catapulted my love for teaching!Recently, I have been teaching out of

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this experience. I thought a singing lesson over the internet would be choppy or tinny, but the audio and visual quality was quite good. Tom, the teacher, knew his stuff, too. If I had one change to make it would be to have a way to provide information about my goals/aims of the helpout beforehand. Tom was quite a good opera singer, but I was looking to get some basics on some less lofty stuff. I still learned a couple of good solid concepts as a beginner, but I felt a little embarrassed. Overall, though, 4 stars for the technical quality and knowledge of the teacher.
