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!

Mary F.

Denver, CO

I will work in the genre of your choice, incorporating music theory
and vocal training, if desired.

About Mary

I've been playing piano since I was 6 yrs. old, and guitar and organ since I was 13. I've been able to use music in so many ways, and that is the opportunity I want for my students. From singing in school and church choirs, to accompanying and directing them, I've had a lot of enjoyable experiences. I've had the fun of performing solo and with bands, and have been teaching music for about 25 yrs, both privately and in the schools. My BA is in music education and my Masters is in individual performance. I've taught K-Jr College music classes in general music, chorus, piano, guitar, and theory.
I think my favorite form of teaching is still one-on-one lessons. Working with one student allows me to adjust my teaching to their particular learning style and needs.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm strict enough to make sure that my students make progress and get a strong musical foundation. I'm laid back enough to make sure that they have a good time doing so and can feel that they are setting their own goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Grand Piano, Electric Piano, Guitars at Home
Basic Piano and Organ at Church

*** Travel Equipment ***
Supplemental music books are loaned from time to time.
I expect the student to have an instrument to practice on and lesson books (purchased)

*** Specialties ***
classical guitar and piano, beginner banjo and vocals

I scheduled a lesson with Mary on April 12. She cancelled her first lesson with me on April 19 without any reason why and rescheduled it over an existing appointment. No call on my phone, no email in my inbox. Very disappointing. Very unprofessional. With the variability of my schedule, I can't handle someone willing to cancel that close to a session (I'm a nurse who works 12 hour night shifts).

Ruth R.

Littleton, CO

As a piano teacher, I am very open to students' musical goals and assist them in working toward them step by step. I work with what motivates my students to learn. I am very patient and teach my students to be patient with the process so that learning music can become a life-long pursuit.

Schedule: Each student is assigned a designated lesson time each week (half-hour, 45 min, or hour slots). Students are expected to be punctual to ensure full lesson time.

Materials: Students will need lesson books and must have them ready for each lesson. The preferred methods to start are Piano Adventures by Faber, All-in-one course by Alfred or Bastien Piano Basics. Please provide a folder or binder to hold additional sheet music, assignment sheets, theory papers, etc. Links to order piano books, sheet music or music theory flashcards will be sent to students prior to their first lesson and may be ordered via Amazon online.

Practicing: Daily practice should become a habit. Students are ...

Health Coaching · Online
I started taking online piano lessons with Ruth and learned that she is also a health coach. As a 43 year old mother, I was told by my doctor that I needed to get my weight down. Since I was so impressed with how patient and knowledgeable Ruth was about music and health, I decided to book health coaching sessions with her. Her program is very informative and educational. She understands that everyone's life is different and that not one diet or plan works for all. She tailored the program to accommodate my busy lifestyle and I am happy to report that I have lost 20lbs since we started earlier this year! Now, thanks to Ruth, I am skinnier and can play a musical instrument!

My daughter has been taking lessons with Ruth for over 2 years and she loves it! Ruth is very open to working on songs she likes. Not only does she learn to read the music, but really seems to understand the theory behind the music. I highly recommend Ruth. She is an exceptional teacher!

I am a piano student in my late 50's and have been taking lessons for 2 1/2 years now. I begin taking lessons with Ruth a little over a year ago and not only has my playing skilled increased significantly, but also my understanding of music in general. Ruth is very knowledgeable and an extremely patient person when it comes to teaching. I highly recommend her to anyone of any age or skill level.

Taylor R.

Golden, CO

This lesson is mainly for children. Piano is a great skill to have and usually one the first instruments a child picks up. It helps critical thinking in other subjects and encourages practice.

About Taylor

**Biography**

As a Violist and Violinist, Taylor has performed with many famous musicians and conductors; notable names include founder of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra Mark Wood, Head Conductor of the Colorado State University Orchestra Wes Kenney, and jazz violin practitioner Randy Sabien.

After graduation, he studied music theory and piano privately with famous Ukrainian pianist and music historian Olga Dashevskaya at Red Rocks Community College.
