About William
William C. is currently a freelance trombonist, teacher, and arranger based in Denver, CO. This fall, he has started doctoral work at the University of Colorado - Boulder. He completed the bachelor’s degree in music education and performance at Texas Tech University, and the Master’s in trombone performance, and a Performer’s Certificate, at the University of Denver. His extensive resume a wide variety of concerts, clinics, master-classes, performances, and recording sessions; most notably: the TTU Vernacular Music Center, Lubbock Moonlight Musicals, Colorado Wind Ensemble, Denver Municipal
Band, Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra, and the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra. Mr. C. has taught all ages of students on trombone, euphonium, tuba, and chamber ensembles for 6 years. He was the brass section leader for the world premiere of the full-length theatrical dance show Dancing at the Crossroads and his arrangements have been played by chamber groups throughout northern Colorado.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are geared towards a set of goals that are created between the student's wants and my expectations for them to be successful at what the student wants to achieve. For each student, I use a different set of pedagogical tools designed to get them to the goals they want. The main goal I have for all my students is that their fundamentals on their instrument will be at the level that they can complete their goals with ease. Over their time with me, they will have the skills to coach themselves when they practice and tackle any music they come across.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect them to provide and music stand and their music. These are both things that they need to have at their home for practice.

*** Specialties ***
I teach and perform both jazz and classical music. Almost any style that uses a trombone or brass instruments, I have performed in and have a strong foundation in.

Jeremy really enjoyed his lesson with Bill. Bill is great with kids and I highly recommend him. If he played guitar I might take lessons from him!

Thanks so much! We are here on vacation and appreciate the availability of Bill. My daughter has a region audition when we get back home and she needed help with her scales.

About Aaron
Aaron is available for in-home, in-studio, and online guitar, ukulele, and bass guitar lessons worldwide. Aaron has been playing guitar for over 15 years and teaching music since 2004. Aaron teaches people of all ages and levels of experience. Although trained in standard teaching methods, Aaron also uses some of his own methods of teaching to positively enhance the student€™s’ strength, dexterity, ear-training, memorization and techniques. His goal as a teacher is specifically designed to help you achieve your goals as an artist and a musician. Aaron is flexible, fun-loving, and takes pride i
n helping students succeed.

Aaron attended the University of Colorado, Boulder, where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Musicology. He is constantly continuing his education with music theory courses and private guitar instruction from Boulder guitar legend Bill Kopper.

Aaron is an expert transcriber for guitar and bass using notation and tablature, effective exercises, and he can break it down and explain complex patterns in a simple, easy-to-understand way that better enhances the students’ learning.

Aaron has been learning tunes by ear for many years and can easily teach any song. Lessons with Aaron cover selections from all of your favorite artists such as Led Zeppelin, Green Day, Guns 'N' Roses, Train, Maroon 5, John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band, Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, The Beatles, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton to name a few.

Another nice feature that you might enjoy from one-on-one sessions with Aaron is learning the ability to craft and record your own songs using state of the art technology that caters to your own unique personality. You can record segments of musical selections you are currently working on to see more clearly how to practice. There are no limits!

Lessons are scheduled to best fit to the student'€™s schedule when possible.

Students receive complimentary audio lessons and transcriptions of songs upon their first or second session. Aaron is a very patient instructor and understands that students learn at a different pace. After all guitar is supposed to be fun, not difficult and frustrating.

Aaron is very patient and understanding about what you want to accomplish in your playing. He's vastly open to multiple songs and quickly picks up on the songs that he doesn't know to be able to teach you. Awesome learning experience.

Aaron has been working with my 11 year old son G since last fall, so my review is sadly overdue. I initially chose him because his musical influences seemed in line with my sons. Since then we have learned much about Aaron, and he has become a wonderful addition to our home. Our first lesson was spent teaching G about his guitar, making sure we had the right tools and listening to music. Aaron took great care to listen to my son and learn about his interests and goals. His patience is endless, and he truly has a passion for opening up students to all types of music. All of the music G has learned is something that they chose together through listening and collaboration.

Over the next several months we enjoyed watching G build on his love of music and he really looks forward to his lessons. Through this process Aaron helped us learn that G was having trouble with hand strength and so he suggested trying the Ukulele until his hands grew a bit and got stronger. Aaron went above and beyond to help us pick the right instrument for him. Since changing over, our home has been filled with the sounds of the Ukulele, and G practices more than ever. Our family is lucky to have found Aaron, and he is the perfect fit for our son.

My daughter and I both think Aaron is great. I hired him to teach my 7 year old daughter. He's patient, kind, and clearly not only knows his instruments, but also loves them. He has a quiet passion for music that really makes her want to do well.

About Calvin
As a classical trained violist with orchestral, chamber, and solo performance experience, my teaching style is geared towards performance and expression. I don't adhere to any one book of teaching, adjusting my teaching to the unique needs of each student. My teachers came from different pedagogical backgrounds; as a result, I have a wide array of teaching tools available to pass on to my students. I have taught with the Longy School of Music's El Sistema program and had a Teaching Artist residence with Cambridge Public Schools. I hold a BM in Viola performance from the Lamont School of Music
and a MM in Viola Performance from the Longy School of Music.

I have played viola since I first began my musical studies at age 9. As a result, I have seen teachers hold viola students back, simply because they play the "lesser" instrument in the viola family. I do not hold my students back and I hold them all to the same high level of playing, regardless of which instrument they play.

I've never had any experience with orchestral instruments before. After one lesson with Calvin, I'm learning to read music again. He showed me proper technique as well. I feel that I will be progressing quickly under Calvin's instruction. My first lesson flew by, and I learned so much in a very short amount of time. His attention to smaller details in technique are very helpful as well. I absolutely recommend Calvin as a viola instructor!

About April
I have picked up and loved the flute for 13 years, and I wish to share this passion and creativity with students. I have had the opportunity to study under Emily McKay and Marco Granados, as well as perform in masterclasses with Trevor Wye, William Bennett, and Lorna Mcghee. As a recent Denver citizen, I wish to grow my roots as a teacher who fosters flute playing as a fun and outside-the-box activity.
I have started teaching private lessons since high school, and into my college and graduate school years. I have taken classes on pedagogy and teaching artistry in creative ways, such as tea
ching students to do improvisations and asking questions in order to get them engaged in the learning process. I have played classical, jazz, pop, and latin music, and can teach an array of different genres. I believe music contributes to a well-rounded individual, and will gladly accept students of all experiences and ages. My goal will to always keep the student engaged and having fun!

April is wonderful. She is finding 'hidden' problems with my breathing and use, or at times misuse of my neck muscles and breathing that would be very hard for a lesser teacher to detect and work to correct.
Her ear for pitch/tone and the various 'artifact' background variances in my blowing/breathing structure and ways toward a remedy is amazing.
Any teacher can show a student posture and finger placement, but her teaching techniques go far beyond that.
I am more than pleased with her commitment to excellence.
Thank you April.
