Ronald G.

Aurora, CO

About Ronald

Coming form a musical family, I cannot remember when music was not a part of my life. Both my parents were musicians, my father an instrumentalist and arranger and my mother a fine pianist. From the age of seven they encouraged and assisted my music education any way they could. Music came first in our family. My school years were spent in band, marching band and jazz band. During my high school years I took over the local elementary band and taught beginning band to the students after the band teacher had left before the school year finished.
To pay my way through college I taugh
t piano, organ and band instruments in rural Colorado, even using a horse to get to my students when the roads were closed. During this time I was the house organist at the Alladin Theater in Denver and had the pleasure of playing for the primer of " The Duchess and Dirtwater Fox" starring George Segal and Goldie Hawn. I also played for many churches in the area assisting with choir and congregational music.
My teaching experience is broad with both private and public school classroom experiences. I have taught privately for well over forty years in both a private and group settings. I also have a MSW ( Master Social Worker) degree from the University of Denver and for many years assisted Seniors with the challenges that they face.
Currently I am Minister of Music for First Presbyterian Church in Georgetown, Colorado ( a small mountain community west of Denver). I am organist for the Scottish Rite Temple in Denver and perform private and public events throughout the mountain and Denver area.

*** Lesson Details ***
For many years I have been blessed to go to my student's homes. In this comfortable, familiar background I have found the student is more relaxed in the learning process. With the teacher coming to the home this is one less thing for the parent to schedule in their busy schedule. I also have a comfortable studio in my home with piano, organ, keyboard and recording capabilities.
Everyone whether child or adult has a different style of learning music this is of vital importance of learning anything. This along with the students desires from their learning experience will help decide which coarse will best fit there needs. Through the years my students have shared with me that I am relaxed, easy going and make the lessons fun with a great sense of humor. I strive for the student to be playing music of their choice as soon as possible.
As we walk down the music road all aspects of music education are shared and encouraged. It is vitally important that the student has good reading skills, a basic understanding of music theory,technique,ear training and music history, as music encompasses all aspects of learning from the youngest student to the adult.

*** Studio Equipment ***
in home studio with piano,organ and keyboard and recording capabilities, with seating for parents and guests.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide the books and any supplementary material needed such a a book to write their assignments in. I will provide the lessons and rewards if they apply to the situation such as in young students.

*** Specialties ***
I find I use many methods of instruction. The method needs to fit the student and the situation one is in. I use the Alfred Method a great deal of the time as I find it works well in many situations. As the student advances I supplement in music wants and desires as well a curriculum that may be used if they should decide to continue their studies in a university or college setting.

Lisa G.

Aurora, CO

About Lisa

I am a Colorado Native with a Music Degree from the University of Denver. I started playing the violin in elementary school and never stopped! I picked up the Viola in college. I enjoy playing that as well.
I have been teaching group classes for the Cherry Creek School district for over 10 years and love that. I have been teaching private lessons for over 10 years as well. Both are challenging in very different ways.
I enjoy watching my students learn and grow through music.
I love playing with an orchestra and playing with a quartet. I've played with several different local groups
over the years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do not offer one size fits all lessons. I tailor my lessons to fit the needs and goals of each individual student. I use a variety of different method books based on the musical background of each student.
You can expect that I will ask a bunch of questions at the beginning of your lessons, and I will try a bunch of things at first. And then will make a decision based on what I think will be the best fit.
I like to utilize what technology has to offer, and I have a keyboard and a computer available at every lesson. I use them for ear training and listening activities.
I like to make sure that music is fun, however I will expect that students are doing the work at home, so at home practice is expected.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ violin, piano, keyboard, music stands, and seating for parents.
Please note that I do have a dog in the home, please let me know if you have allergies.

*** Specialties ***
I teach beginning and intermediate violin. I teach a classic style.

My daughter, Katie, started her first violin lessons this year with Lisa. I wasn't sure if she was going to enjoy playing the violin as she is only 6 yrs old and pretty lively (hard to keep her still!), but Katie loved Lisa from the start. Lisa is friendly, patient, and easy going with Katie. Within a couple of months, Katie was already practicing her second song and sight reading her music. Lisa is a great violin teacher!

very patient teacher!

Lisa is very patient! My son is a typical 8 yr old boy with lots of energy and she is very good at keeping him focused. She is also very good at working on 1 thing at a time and not overwhelming students with no music experience. I would recommend her to anyone interested in learning violin.

I promise all of my students the best atmosphere when I'm teaching you. Music is 90% mental, and the best way to be able to control your mentality is to be in a relaxed and comfortable environment. I will provide that no matter what. I'm a funny guy and I tend to crack jokes a lot so be prepared to laugh! I'm here to help you and make you reach your highest potential. I'm a laid back teacher but I always do expect that my students take what I have given them and practice, practice, practice! Everything you want lies in choice, so it should be your choice on how well you want to be able to play music. I will be your tour guide through the vast and infinite pool of musical experience!

I have been taking guitar lessons from Joey for about 4 months now and let me tell you it is a joy! Joey not only know music, music theory, and musical techniques, he is very passionate about it. He is very patient and can lead you down the path to help you achieve your goals regardless of the experience you currently have with your instrument. He is up front with you that learning to play is not magic, it requires hard work. I am 59 years old and finally decided learn to how to play the guitar after messing around with it on and off over the years. Joey has already got me playing the guitar solo from Maybe I'm Amazed and the intro riff to Purple Haze. He is also teaching me scales and music theory. I am having a blast! I would recommend Joey to anyone in any age group who is serious about learning to play. Thanks, Joey! Jeff Emerson

Aurora, CO

About Jon

Since early childhood, I have shown great interest in anything music related. I have played piano since age four and have continued playing numerous instruments throughout my career. Currently, I can play approximately fourteen musical instruments, four of which I have played the longest and have pursued professionally. I have had a rich musical education since childhood. I took private piano lessons since the age of five through senior year of college and I also have had guitar, voice and percussion lessons given to me by educators throughout my career.

In elementary school, I began playi
ng percussion and continued to do so throughout High School. It was also during my High School years that I picked up Guitar and Voice. I attended Cherry Creek High School for three years and was a prominent member of both top ensembles, the CCHS Wind Ensemble and the elite honor choir, the CCHS Meistersingers.

I continued my education further by attending the University of Northern Colorado for four years and while there studied private piano as a Piano Major, as well as taking part in two top choral ensembles, the Concert Choir and Men's Glee Club. While fulfilling my music credit classes, I learned the basics for an additional ten instruments included in the brass, woodwind and string families. During my Senior Year at UNC I also completed a mandatory Senior Recital for Piano. I graduated in December of 2009 and since then have held a teaching license as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education, with an emphasis for Vocal, Piano and General Music.

Since college, I have been doing my best to stay active in the music education system. Just recently, I finished three long term substitute teaching assignments in Douglas County School District, the first and third at Trailblazer Elementary School, where I taught General Music every day to Kindergartners through sixth graders and the second at Mountain Ridge Middle School, where I directed and conducted the 7th/8th grade Winter Choir Concert.

Music is my Passion; it has been a part of my life since early childhood. To this day I still love to play piano professionally and I strive to make myself a better musician every chance I get.
