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 ble
ssed 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 recently Denise in What You See is What You Get, a new musical by Denver artists.

*** Lesson Details ***
I tailor each lesson based on age, interests and level of experience of each student. We begin with learning how to practice, and how to use practice time efficiently. I can audio record each lesson and post that recording online where students (and/or parents) can listen and review what was learned that week, or simply go back to favorite warm-ups and exercises. In this same database I will post scanned copies of assigned sheet music, any assigned reading or exercises, and mp3 piano recordings of accompaniment.

I choose repertoire (songs) depending on the individual voice and ability level and try to give students the opportunity to perform at least once per quarter, even just for family or each other.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons will be held in my home studio where I have an electric keyboard, recording equipment, music library with repertoire for all voice types and genres, printer/copy machine, and seating area for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a small keyboard and can play recordings of music and/or accompaniment through my laptop. I will bring appropriate music selections from my library. The student may purchase his or her own copy of whatever book or music we decide to use, and is expected to have access to the internet to get recordings and sheet music. Access to a printer is a plus.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in voice pedagogy and vocal hygiene, and have an extensive background in jazz, musical theatre, opera, and art song, maintaining a foundation in classical technique.

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 ***

• Classical PIANO training.

• COMPOSITION.

• Music Reading but WIT
H 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 Dramaturgy, Mimics, Declamation, FOREIGN LANGUAGES.

• Developing a well-trained governing HEARING that enables the rise of knowledge and control in music-making of all kinds.

• Poetry & Song.

Hand Drums
Internet access
Waiting Area
In Broomfield, I receive interested students in my home, at my acoustic piano.

About me:
I have been dedicated for the last 5 years to the study of the Operatic Voice, developing my soprano voice. Before that I earned two master-equivalent diplomas in music composition, and music theory. For a long time, composing songs and pieces of music, as well as studying guitar as a child, piano and percussion later, it all has been a means to further my vital singing fate, on which I persevere every day.

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.

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 con
tinue 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 the UNT commencement ceremonies. This led to an offer to tour Italy with the Rome Festival Orchestra. For the next two summers I performed in Copenhagen, Istanbul, Rome and Berlin with the Berlin Philharmonic.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students progress VERY quickly! As a teacher, I can easily identify my students’ strengths and weaknesses, and plan an individualized study course. I will instill a solid set of production skills that will easily serve ANY style of music you choose (from rock to opera.)

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!) find their way to the joys of music. After graduating high school my passion for music kept growing and I decided to go to a school to learn more about it. While attending Moorhead State University of Minnesota I went through a speed boost to gaining knowledge about music. The wonderful teachers of MSUM provided me with direction, encouragement, and plenty of opportunities to play through ensembles. I was in Jazz Guitar Ensemble, Jazz Combos, Jazz Big Band, and Commercial Ensembles. My aspirations are to pass along the information torch that I received while attending MSUM to people who are interested and have the desire to make a sound.I am friendly, patient, and fun to work with. I believe music should be exciting and make you feel good. I teach on an individual basis. Everybody learns at different rates and in different ways. My goal is to find the best way to teach you so that you get the most out of our lessons. There are many streams that lead to the big ocean of music so there are many different ways to learn. Whether you want to learn rock, jazz, bluegrass, or folk I am flexible with teaching you what you want to learn while at the same time providing you with little golden nuggets of information to further your skills through music theory, technique exercises, and how to avoid common pit falls. With enough determination, patience, and practice you too can discover the joys of music and be able to express your individuality in a way you never thought possible. It would be an honor to help you find your own path down the road to musical bliss.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back person with an easy going approach to teaching. Music is meant to be fun! I teach you what you want to learn. I have had experience with playing rock, jazz, bluegrass, and folk. If you are not sure what you want to learn I'll ask you questions about yourself and your interests to determine the best route to go. Within the first few lessons you will learn how to tune your instrument, how to read tablature (TABS for short), and how to read chord charts. If you are interested in learning theory and how to read music I teach out of the Hal Leonard Guitar Method book series. After the first six months, depending on your level and how much you practice, you will be well on your to playing full songs by your favorite artists, have the ability to jam with other musicians, and understand the basics of your instrument. It is my belief that you get out of music what you put into it. There are no short cuts. All of the masters have one thing in common and that is practice. If you are willing to put in the work I am obliged to give you direction.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music stand, amp, instrument cable, picks

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide an amp and picks. I expect the student to provide an instrument, instrument cable (if using an electric instrument), tuner, metronome, notebook (either tab book or regular notebook),

*** Specialties ***
I play an eclectic blend of rock, jazz, folk, and bluegrass. My method of teaching is based on the individual's level and type of learning.
