Terri D.

Denver, CO

About Terri

I have a BA in Philosophy and Music Performance , 1993, from the University of Northern Colorado and University of Colorado at Denver. I teach in the traditional method and I’m classically trained but I also play and teach in a variety of styles.

I began playing the violin when I was nine and I'm very glad I did as it has led to much fulfillment and accomplishment for me.

*** Lesson Details ***
You can expect to get a good foundation in playing the violin from me and have the experience of really enjoying playing. I use a few standard methods which help beginner and more advanced stud
ents learn to play and master technique, which is important, and so is enjoying playing music you love!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Kolacny studios has semi-sound proof private rooms for lessons. Music stands included.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide stands and music. I prefer if they provide their stands,music, rosin and instrument though.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical violin and have a little Irish fiddle experience. I also played viola classically for several years.

David K.

Denver, CO

I love helping students who are new to an instrument gain the confidence and skills necessary to pursue it long-term. As a former orchestra teacher, I have a soft spot for strings. My students tend to develop a genuine love for their instrument and desire to continue studying.

About David

I love music. I love playing it, writing it, teaching it, listening to it, even analyzing the theory! I'm a bit (a huge bit) of a music nerd.

I've been playing piano since I was five years old, and guitar since eleven. I have a Bachelor's of Music Education, with classical guitar being my primary instrument. In the past, I have taught middle school orchestra and elementary general music, have been the Executive Director of a non-profit youth orchestra, and have maintained private students because of my passion for teaching one-on-one. I have a particular knack for getting middle sc
hool-aged through adult students excited about new aspects of music.

My passion truly is to share music with others, whether that is through teaching private lessons, teaching in public school settings, composing, or simply bringing a friend to a concert.

Aside from music, I love being outside. Skiing, fly-fishing, and backpacking are some of my favorite things in the world.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach guitar (beginning through advanced), and beginning violin, viola, and cello.

Although classical guitar is my primary strength, I am more than willing to teach any style that a student may want to learn. If you want to learn rock, blues, jazz, etc. I'd be thrilled to teach you that particular genre. To me, style is simply a vehicle to learn over-arching musical ideas and skills.

The most important skill that I can help students develop is reading music. If a student can read music, regardless of current technical ability, ambition, or musical preferences, they will be able to learn more music than I will ever be able to teach them. I make it my serious goal to teach myself out of a job, to give students the tools that they need to go out and learn as much as they possibly can (or want to), so that when our lessons eventually come to an end, they have a solid base from which to grow.

My personal style is fairly laid back. I am a very easy-going individual, but I do expect that my students practice. As long as a student is practicing and putting forth effort, I will bend over backwards to help them.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/guitars, violin, cello, stands, amp, and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have my own instruments and books. I expect students to have their own instrument and be willing to buy books as well.

*** Specialties ***
Classical Guitar

David is a great Guitar teacher.

David has been a great guitar teacher for my teenage kid! He was patient with her but he also challenged her to work harder. My kid learned a lot in just a few months, from no experience to being able to play somewhat difficult scales and chords! I believe that David’s experiences both as a high school teacher and as a musician help him to be a great guitar teacher.

Great teacher

David is a wonderful teacher and a great person. I can not be happier about the decision I made to have David teaching guitar to my son.

Patient, knowledgable, and challenging

I am not the student. I am the grandmother of the 8-year-old student. David is very patient with my grandson yet insists on the kid practicing. He challenges my grandson and has earned the respect of both my grandson and me. My grandson is learning a lot and enjoying the experience very much. Kudos to David.

About Mercedes

Hello! My name is Mercedes and I love teaching music! I have been a musician for over 20 years and a music teacher for almost a decade! I currently have seven private students in my studio but am looking for more! I teach violin, viola, and piano out of my home studio which includes: an upright and two digital pianos and Garage Band and Sibelius music software.
A little more about me...I hold a bachelors degree in music education from MSUDenver. My teaching experience includes one year in Denver Public Schools and three years teaching band and orchestra for Springboard After School in Highla
nds Ranch. I am currently a guest teacher in Adams 12 Five-Star Public Schools. When I am not busy teaching music, I am playing violin in a local gothic-rock band called Wither Without and Wither Without Orchestra.
What do I do for fun? Besides music? My husband and fellow music teacher and I are avid outdoorsmen who enjoy backpacking, hiking, snowshoeing, and simply being in nature!
I look forward to sharing my passion and love for music and teaching with you!

Richard H.

Arvada, CO

Viola students will learn playing techniques, scales, vibrato, playing positions, phrasing, basic music theory, reading music (if needed), or anything to accommodate a particular student's area of need.

About Richard

Viola and violin teacher who is willing to travel within 10 miles of Arvada. I've been playing viola since 1996 and have received various awards in middle and high school as principal violist and even concert master (on violin). I was also principal violist in the Rocky Mountain Orchestra Festival in 2003. I'm currently a viola performance and music education major at MSU Denver. At MSU, I'm the principal violist in the symphony orchestra, participate in various chamber ensembles, and have been selected by a couple different composition majors to perform their pieces written for viola. I'm cur
rently under the private instruction of violist Phillip Stevens of the Colorado Symphony. I've always had a passion for music and would love to share that passion with others. I'm very laid back, but hard working at the same time. I would love to help you grow as a musician while also gaining the opportunity to grow as an instructor.

In addition to being a music student and private instructor, I'm the violist in the Mile High String Quartet of Denver. Aside from playing various events such as weddings, the Mile High String Quartet are members of the Colorado Women's Chamber of Commerce and regularly perform at VIP events.
