Nicole R.

Castle Rock, CO

I specialize in teaching classical violin but have extensive experience in performing many different kinds of music. The reason I mainly teach classical violin technique is in order to provide students with a solid technical foundation so that they have the skills to develop their own style and feel comfortable playing many different styles.

About Nicole

I have been studying violin for 12 years and have had diverse experiences in performing all kinds of music from classical to rock. As of Spring 2013 I completed two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Music and Psychology. During my education i was fortunate enough to study violin with Jerilyn Jorgensen and perform in the Lamont Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Lawrence Golan. I was also able to study violin, music performance, and composition with Carlo Feige, Roberto Andreoni, and Simone Fontenelli in Milan, Italy for 3 months during my junior year. During my undergraduate degree i chose to accompany my music with a psychology degree, focusing on cognition as well as social and child psychology, becauseI knew that such knowledge would allow me to help my students learn better. Given ...

Moving forward with an eye on a strong foundation

My daughter has had 2 other teachers. The first thing I noticed was that Nicole paid attention to technique, posture and sound quality. It took a bit, but she helped my daughter relearn some overlooked basics. The immediate difference was amazing. Then the approach Nicole takes in helping students learn to listen to and understand their own playing really increased my daughters motivation to improve. She has improved tremendously and is having fun doing it.

Fantastic teacher

Nicole is an excellent teacher that understands her students and teaches them in a way that is geared toward them individually. She listens and is very patient. While not only encouraging the student, she also challenges them thus opening up creativity and a love for the violin.

Wonderful Teacher!

Our daughter had a previous violin instructor for 3 years and had a great foundation. However, we knew it was time to take her to the next level with technique and note reading. Nicole is very knowledgeable about violin technique, its history, and about music. My daughter has grown tremendously. Her intonation, note reading confidence, and rhythm has greatly improved. She has a new found excitement for her instrument again!

Amber J.

Englewood, CO

Violin is the NUMBER ONE instrument to teach the young (5-10 years)
student musicianship, rhythm, and perfect pitch and musicality.

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.

I've been learning violin from Autumn for about a year and a half now. She is incredibly patient, offers encouragement, and is kind in all of my lessons. She isn't afraid to challenge you and never puts limitations on you. Her lessons are always fun and you can rest assured that you will learn the correct technique and sound. She never gives up on you and never shows any frustration! I couldn't have asked for a better or more outstanding teacher! Thank you! :)

At 40, violin is the first instrument I have ever learned, having taking lessons for seven months now with Autumn. Her clear instruction provides phenomenal motivation to intensely practice, and excel. I am humbled by her teaching of music theory in her lessons as well. Our orchestra group Autumn established has amazing synergy. As an engineer by trade, I have a deeper feeling of resonance and nature, through violin, thanks to Autumn.
