Molly M.

Denver, CO

I welcome piano students of all ages and levels of experience. I don't have a set curriculum or required method book, as I feel that it's important to tailor lessons to the individual student. I work with my students to learn how to read music and feel it's important to include theory and ear training to have a more complete understanding of how and why we do what we do as we're playing. I specialize in classical music, but am happy to work on music from other genres such as rock, pop, and Broadway, or others. I feel this allows my students to be fully engaged at their lessons when the music we're working on is something that interests them.

About Molly

I have loved music almost all my life. I began my lifelong journey to immerse myself in learning piano at age seven. At thirteen, I added violin lessons as well. By the time I reached high school, I knew that music would be my major in college, and that music would always be a vital part of my life.
I played violin with my high school orchestra, including taking part in productions of Fiddler on the Roof and Anything Goes. I also played piano with the orchestra, and performed the first movement of Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A minor in concert. I played the piano for my school’s top show choir
as well, performing with the group throughout the Denver area. I was also a member of the Colorado All-State Orchestra. All this time, I continued my private lessons in both piano and violin.
While still in high school, I auditioned for, and got, the title role in the Country Dinner Playhouse’s production of Fiddler on the Roof.
After high school, I chose the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music to continue my music education. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with my Bachelor of Music degree in piano. I was invited to join the academic honor society, Phi Beta Kappa, as well as the music honor society, Pi Kappa Lambda. I have also completed my Master of Music in piano at Lamont School of Music.
While in college, I accompanied many vocal and instrumental students, and discovered the joy of chamber and collaborative music. I formed partnerships and friendships with many other musicians, including professional musicians in several countries. I have also worked as a pianist for several area churches and spent one holiday season as a pianist at Nordstrom.
I believe that music should be an integral part of a well-rounded education. I hope that my passion for music will enable me to help others find the same joy and appreciation.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that every student learns differently and that those differences should be embraced. For that reason, I do not advocate a specific method or curriculum. I will work with each student individually to determine what method of learning will work best for them. Together we will decide what our curriculum should be so that we can incorporate not only learning, but fun into lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Computer desk, piano, dedicated music room, space for parents to wait

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect students to provide their own instruments.

*** Specialties ***
Classical music

Johanna N.

Denver, CO

I teach piano for a variety of interests and levels. I have worked with people interested in learning classical, jazz, and popular music. Lessons include a technique focus and theory work along with songs that are of interest of to the student. We can work on playing for fun, for performance, improving technique and skill, and/or all the aforementioned.

About Johanna

I love to teach music and I live to help my students learn about the joys that being a musician can bring. If you are looking for a piano or voice instructor or a theory teacher who is passionate about music and about teaching, then I am that person. I work to help my students achieve the best possible results in his or her lessons while still having fun.

I have a Master's of Education from Regis University and a Bachelor's of Arts in Piano Performance from Western State College. I have taught piano lessons for 12 years and voice lessons for 3 years. I am constantly looking for new ways
to incorporate music into my life and into my students' lives and to help maximize everyone's learning experiences.

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a fairly traditional classical approach in the use of literature and materials, but I also prefer to take into account student learning styles and preferences. I understand that everyone learns in different ways and has different interests, so along with using the classical literature, I try to incorporate student interests and learning styles. I do expect students to follow my rules and procedures during lessons and practice times, and these are all common sense, such as be respectful and be on time, etc. I also expect students to practice regularly. I will find a way to make practice time fun and interesting for all of my students. I do expect all of my students to make adequate progress, and within 6 months they will most likely be progressing to either a Primer B or Grade 1. (All students start at Primer A, which is the most basic level, unless they have had prior experience). Otherwise, I expect students with prior experience to progress have a level every 6 months.

Piano lessons focus on using a combination of technique, theory worksheets, and performance/practice songs. This helps students to have a varied approach and it also addresses all aspects of musicality, as well as incorporating multiple learning styles. I prefer for students to begin with the Thompson series and to progress through that series while also working on level appropriate solo pieces.

Voice lessons focus on beginner technique, pronunciation and enunciation, breath technique, and English pieces to start. As students progress, they may work through Italian opera and operetta, German lieder, and other more challenging songs. The foreign series includes work on foreign pronunciation and operatic singing. If a student chooses, they may also focus on a more folk-based approach than the traditional operatic approach.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: piano, sheet music, metronome, pencils.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide some books, or I can purchase books at a discounted price. I can also bring a metronome. I expect the student to have a piano or a full-length keyboard. I sometimes bring pencils, but I expect the student to have one handy to mark their music.

*** Specialties ***
Piano: beg - adv
Voice: beg - inter

I teach piano and voice. For piano I teach classical, jazz, blues, rock, pop, and ragtime. I focus on teaching students how to sightread, memorize, learn theoretical and pedagogical concepts, and learn how to improvise. I can also teach accompaniment.

For voice I teach classical operatic style, Broadway/show tunes, popular, country, jazz, choral, blues, and rock styles. I help students to find comfort with their own voices, learn how to sing in a way that supports their voice, and keeps their voice healthy. I also work with teaching pitch recognition, sight reading, oral recall, and breath technique.

Johanna is awesome!!

I gave her a general idea of what I wanted and so far her instruction has helped greatly. After only two lessons I am more comfortable singing, and I am starting to expand my range.She also likes to have fun during her lessons. She is always pleasant and upbeat, and her criticism is always fair and positive. She honestly wants you to succeed in your goals and it comes through in her teaching.

Nate L.

Denver, CO

I have a degree in piano performance and perform locally nationally and internationally. Please see my bio for a full description. I specialize in teaching older students who are new to piano or looking to get back into it

About Nate

Born in Boston mass I am a DU educated pianist comfortable in any Jazz, Rock, or Classical setting but find my first love is the bluesy rollicking piano reminiscent of Jerry Lee Lewis, Dr. John, or Ray Charles. You might have seen me around town in my Top 40 group, Jazz trio, Funk band, Gospel choir, Burlesque band, or as accompaniment to any of the extremely talented singers I have worked with. I'm also a composer and songwriter with a sardonic songwriting style compared to Mose Allison and Dave Frishberg.

I attended the University of Denver'€™s Lamont School of Music and graduated with a
B.M. in Jazz and Commercial Piano. Not only have I studied intensely with local fixture Eric Gunnison, but also with internationally touring artist Gerri Allen and even with jazz legend Billy Taylor at a summer music institute in Amherst, Mass. In Highschool I won the Clarke Terry award for outstanding musicianship. In college I won the Lamont Made composition contest two years in a row, my band The Orchid Room won the Lamont Jazz Chamber contest and I was a recipient of the Cherrington Global Scholarship, a grant that allowed me to spend a year performing and studying in Australia.

Since graduating college I have worked as the pianist on a cruise ship and have performed in Mexico, Hawaii, South America, French Polynesia, and Australia. I have recorded with LA based R&B artist Molly Cottrell, South By Southwest nominated Folk artist Leah Druzinski, and have had my music produced by Ikey Owens (keyboardist for Sublime, The Mars Volta, and Jack White.) I perform regularly at local venues Dazzle, Jazz at Jacks, and The Living Room.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have 7 years teaching experience and am especially suited to teach jazz, rock, funk, pop, blues and salsa. I am incredibly student focused, striving to help my students achieve their specific goals, and committed to working one on one to help you get what you want out of every lesson. Friendly, relaxed and affable, I have significant experience with adult and teenage students, students with special needs, and students looking for instruction in rock, pop, or blues.

I stand out from other piano teachers because my lessons are specifically tailored to your needs. While most Teachers in Denver are trained to take young children through a piano workbook and develop them into classical musicians, I teach based on what the student wants to play. I have significant experience in Jazz, Blues, and R&B piano as well as songwriting, and have worked professionally in rock, funk, salsa, jazz, standards, gospel, top 40, burlesque, and solo piano acts. My approach is not designed for young children but for adults and teenagers of all experience levels who have an interest in learning more about music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music studio, F/W Keyboard (Roland FP-7 Digital Piano) & Full Amplifier System, 7 Piece ?uestlove Breakbeats Drum Kit, Seating for Parents

*** Specialties ***
My Degree (B.M. in Jazz and Commercial Music) encompasses most styles of piano outside of classical.

I specialize most heavily in
Jazz,
Blues,
R&B,
Rock, and
Pop,

but also have significant experience with
Salsa,
Gospel,
& Klezmer.

I can teach classical as well up to an intermediate level.

Amber J.

Englewood, CO

My youngest piano student is 3 and is doing incredibly well! My oldest student was 78 and had always wanted to learn to play. I can help you with your piano goals from beginner to advanced, from the basics of reading music and playing a song for your family to performance auditions and everything in between.
I use a number of methods, however, I am open to help you learn through a method of your choice if you have one you enjoy. I will guarantee to having you play a familiar song within one month!

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.)
I will make for you a personalized recording for you to practice with daily. We will also work on songs you LOVE!
My students will have performance opportunities every 3 months. I will prepare you for college entrance auditions, TV contests, and television appearances. My students make extraordinary progress-I want you to become one of them!

*** Studio Equipment ***
10x15 dedicated music room, piano, lovely mountain view, mirrors, microphone and sound equipment available for students. The parents of students are welcome to stay in the room with the students, if they choose.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a piano and I will purchase the method book I want the student to use but I do require reimbursement for books and shipping if required. Student provides notebooks and pens.

She is a constant stream of encouragement, praise, reinforcement, and discipline throughout my daughters 45 minute voice and violin lesson.

Denver, CO

About Tom

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 a
fter, 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 St. John School of the Arts, where I worked with voice and piano students ages 7-60. All of my students had varying styles, but I was able to help them build a foundation of technique that would allow them to sing with a free and healthy tone in any style.I believe we all have the ability to create music and I can help you discover it!

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal in voice lessons is first and foremost to establish a solid vocal technique.  My philosophy is "singing is simple, but not easy!"  We will focus mostly on two things: breath and space for singing.  This method of teaching is known as "bel canto".  It helps build a strong foundation that then allows you to sing almost any style!  Because everyone is different, we will tailor a set of exercises to fit your needs and will help you build that strong foundation!  Once these principles begin to settle in, we will work on music.  I have a huge library of songs to chose from, but I highly encourage you to bring in your favorite songs. Remember, everyone is different and progresses at different rates, but don't be discouraged! This is not a race, but a life skill that you will continue to master!

In piano, I am classically trained.  Through a series of music books, we will work on music theory, finger dexterity, music history, ear training, eye/hand coordination, and pure enjoyment of making music. Again, everyone is different, but with some outside commitment, you will improve! Classical piano training is a great foundation for all other styles, such as jazz, pop, singer songwriter, country, etc. Piano also helps with in other aspects of your life such as memory, math, history, reading, etc.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a full size keyboard and music stand.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Please provide a piano, music books, music stand (if needed), and a lesson book for notes.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classically trained baritone specializing in bel canto. I have found this technique to be a great foundation for all styles of singing, from opera to pop. I am also classically trained at the piano. I focus on natural hand positions, note identification, music theory, and ear training. And I have fun doing it!

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.
