Ricardo P. Broomfield, CO

About Ricardo

I have been a professional musician and teacher all my adult life. Music is my passion and has always been how I make a living. I teach piano/keyboards, guitar, voice, bass and ukulele. I studied classical piano at SUNY at Buffalo and I initially learned to play guitar and singing on my own. Years later I studied voice and guitar with great professional instructors. I am familiar with different ways of learning music: from very structured and traditional methods (that we use in classical music) to more improvisational and "by ear" approaches as we often do in popular music. This helps me tailor my music teaching specifically to each student based on his/her musical preferences, abilities and learning style. I can teach all styles of music including: Pop, Rock, Blues, Country, Bluegrass, ...

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.

Andrea is a great voice teacher

I started taking opera lessons with Andrea this summer and I absolutely adore her teaching style. She not only has the education level and teaching experience to help you reach your potential, but she is very easy going and extremely comfortable to be around! With me, she zoned into my weaknesses and was able to make me aware of what I need to work on and from there I was able to make improvements. I would definitely recommend Andrea because she is an awesome voice teacher!!

Outstanding instructor of guitar. He goes above and beyond when it comes to teaching students how to play the guitar. He is very flexible, understanding, knowledgeable, and patient when he delivers his classes. Not only does he teach students how to play the guitar, he also does other things like teaching them how to tune their guitars, how to change keys when necessary to make a song sound better, and how to use a capo when playing the guitar. All of these are above and beyond what most teachers have taught me in the past. I really enjoy taking classes from my instructor.

Scott B. Broomfield, CO

About Scott

Hi! I'm Scott, and I'm a native of this great State of Colorado! I fell in love with the drums in 6th grade, and have never looked back! I too, began by taking private lessons, having been fortunate to be able to study under one of the best performers and private teachers in the Rocky Mountain West at the time. Beginning private instruction in Elementary School, I continued for 7 years even while embarking on a performance career in high school. Since then I've both performed and recorded a wide variety of styles including most forms of rock, country, jazz, pop, Gospel, symphonic/orchestral styles, and concert and marching band styles. I've also been fortunate to be able to teach many other students over these last 29 years of my career, and watch them achieve their own goals in drumming.

Scott is an incredibly patient teacher. Our 6 year old has been working with him for quite a few months. Its really difficult to keep the attention of a 6 year old, but Scott has different techniques to keep him interested. He has taught our son to read music in a very short time. He has taught the importance of practice as well as warming up. He has no problem coming to our house to teach, which gives our son the comfort of home. Scott is very patient and extremely flexible and we are enjoying working with him.

Its amazing seeing our little boy reading the music and playing the drums.

We highly recommend Scott in every way!

Scott is one of the best teachers I've come in contact with.

He is great with people! He really goes into the need for knowing basics if you're going to do well at any of the playing styles. It makes it so much easier to play just about anything, instead of having to start from scratch to learn every individual style of music there is, which is really important when you're doing recording like I am. He's also great in encouraging individual creativity in playing, and not just staying "inside the box." That really makes a person stand out from everyone else, which is what needs to happen if you're going to be noticed and be successful.

Excellent Instructor Overall

"Awesome teacher" 5/5 stars Boulder Guitar Studio Review
I wouldn't consider getting instruction from anybody but Lee. From his lifetime devotion to music, he has an encyclopedic knowledge of musical styles and playing techniques, which he uses to customize lessons to the student's particular goals. Besides guitar and bass, I spent a lot of time with Lee studying songwriting -- he's an awesome writer himself and completely open about sharing all the things he has learned over the years.
That willingness to adapt to my particular needs and desires, along with his true passion for all types of music, makes Lee an outstanding teacher.
Pros: Helpful, Engaging, Encouraging, Smart, Patient, Funny, Fun, Good communicator- Derek Zahn, Boulder, CO, Oct 11, 2010

Caitlyn is a wonderful Flute teacher and her music education/experience/awards are very impressive. My 10 yr. old daughter had switched instruments many times before she started Flute lessons with Caitlyn and has finally found her interest! Thanks to the teacher to make it interesting for my daughter and help her discover her instrument. Caitlyn is a very friendly, enthusiastic and great teacher to work with. I would definitely recommend Caitlyn for anybody!

3 Reasons Why Piano Players Should Also Learn the Organ
There are many reasons why a music student may find themselves learning to play piano on a keyboard rather than on a baby grand: cost, space, or simply lack of access, for example. Versatility on a range of keyboard instruments is also an extremely useful string for any pianist to have to their bow, and can lead to greater practice and public performance opportunities, and even excellent opportunities to earn a little money on the side.
