Ricardo P.

Broomfield, CO

While the foundation for all styles of singing is essentially the same, I specialize in teaching contemporary styles (as opposed to classical singing). Contemporary styles such as rock, pop, blues, gospel, country, jazz and Latin have very different styling than classical singing and as such once correct basic vocal technique is established it should be taught very differently than traditional classical singing. I'll help you get power,more range (to be able to sing higher and lower) pitch control (to sing mor ein tune), better tone, more musicality and versatility through a combination of exercises and learning the songs that you love.

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 tailo
r 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, Jazz, many different Latin styles including Salsa, Bolero and Bossa Nova.
I have performed all over the US and toured many countries including Mexico, Canada, Argentina, Uruguay, England and France. I have recorded more than 100 CDs for many artists (as well as my own original music) as a pianist/keyboardist, singer, guitarist and music producer. I have won many awards including most recently the Best Blues Band award as the pianist, guitarist and singer for the Lionel Young Band at the International Blues Challenge (the largest competition of blues bands in the world).
I have taught music through my whole career. Many of my students have gone on to study music as a career and have become successful professional musicians.
I am very comfortable teaching all levels from professional musicians to very beginners at any age.
I currently lead and perform with my group. We perform concerts, private events and some club work. My life as a professional musician has given me a lot of knowledge to share with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
I adjust my approach based on what you want to learn, always with an emphasis on learning as much as possible while making the lessons fun and enjoyable. If you are a beginning piano/keyboard or guitar student I can teach you the basics of how to read music and how to play chords in the first few months and then we can decide whether you are interested in playing written music or more improvisational styles. I use different method books depending on the student and sometimes I use just my teaching materials if you are only interested in improvisational styles like Rock or Blues guitar or piano (for example). If you are a voice student, I teach with a combination of learning songs you like and using a CD/MP3s of vocal exercises that help develop good vocal technique. Whatever your instrument and musical preference you can be sure we'll have fun and you'll be making music from the very start!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Yamaha upright piano and keyboards. I have acoustic and electric guitars, bass and amps. I have Shure Sm-58 mics to teach microphone technique with.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student must have his/her own instrument and metronome (or equivalent) must purchase course book(s) if needed..

*** Specialties ***
I teach different styles depending on the students goals. I can teach a traditional classical style for those interested in classical music and I can teach more practical approaches for popular music such as learning by chords (for instrumental students- not voice obviously) and learning improvisation through scales, arpeggios and music theory.

Ricardo is the BEST, he is very talented, he got the ears to hear small detailed nuances of a song's tone, he can catch any small mistake in a music play. Best musician I have ever met. He is an expert as well as teaches piano (classical and contemporary), keyboard, guitar (acoustic, electric and bass), voice, song writing, and band assembly. He is every creative and most importantly, he knows how to teach. Should listen to his CD, its amazing!!! He played almost all of the instruments. Highly recommended.

Kelly Z.

Denver, CO

Students will learn to maximize the range, quality, and efficiency of their voice. We will cover repertoire tailored to the individual age, ability, and interests of the student. I like to begin with selecting one foreign language, one English, and one piece of the student's choosing (pop, music theatre, etc.) These lessons include a foundation in classical singing technique, which allows the student to healthily develop the instrument with enough control and flexibility to sing any style of music.

About Kelly

There is a musician and a singer inside every individual and I am here to bring it out! I believe singing can be a vehicle for learning discipline, focus, collaboration, music theory, self-expression, language, interpretation, short-term and long-term goal setting and achievement, musicality, literacy, history, confidence and passion, and I hope to instill these gifts in all of my students.

I completed my BA in Music Education from Fort Lewis College, and then moved to Denver to complete my Masters of Music in vocal performance at the University of Denver. During that time I have been ble
ssed with many performance opportunities in choirs, operas, musical theatre, and jazz settings. Favorite roles include Roxie Hart in CHICAGO the musical, Marcellina in Le Nozze di Figaro, and most recently Denise in What You See is What You Get, a new musical by Denver artists.

*** Lesson Details ***
I tailor each lesson based on age, interests and level of experience of each student. We begin with learning how to practice, and how to use practice time efficiently. I can audio record each lesson and post that recording online where students (and/or parents) can listen and review what was learned that week, or simply go back to favorite warm-ups and exercises. In this same database I will post scanned copies of assigned sheet music, any assigned reading or exercises, and mp3 piano recordings of accompaniment.

I choose repertoire (songs) depending on the individual voice and ability level and try to give students the opportunity to perform at least once per quarter, even just for family or each other.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons will be held in my home studio where I have an electric keyboard, recording equipment, music library with repertoire for all voice types and genres, printer/copy machine, and seating area for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a small keyboard and can play recordings of music and/or accompaniment through my laptop. I will bring appropriate music selections from my library. The student may purchase his or her own copy of whatever book or music we decide to use, and is expected to have access to the internet to get recordings and sheet music. Access to a printer is a plus.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in voice pedagogy and vocal hygiene, and have an extensive background in jazz, musical theatre, opera, and art song, maintaining a foundation in classical technique.

We found Kelly on TakeLessons and we could not be happier. She is fantastic. Not only does she work with my three girls on piano, but also with singing. She is very flexible and able to accommodate our crazy schedule. She usually comes to our house, which is great, because I don't have to set aside hours from my day. Sometimes we go to group lessons or recitals so the kids can be exposed to formal settings and see other people perform. Kelly is a talented and gifted artist, and a reliable and professional teacher. We are so fortunate to have her in our lives.

I took lessons from Kelly for two years and she was absolutely amazing!! I'm now in college for musical theatre and I apply the lessons I learned from her and sing some of the songs we worked on every day. She worked with my crazy schedule without a single complaint and always challenged me to move outside of my comfort zone. If you're looking for a voice teacher, no matter what level you are, Kelly is the absolute best.

Andrea Z.

Denver, CO

I have been teaching singing for 4 years and my students vary from amateurs to artists who prepare for auditions and take part in performances. Within the first few lessons, we will learn to increase the attentiveness of our hearing and gain firmness of tone (primarily by means of this very constantly attentive, governing hearing). As we advance, we will gradually gain knowledge of the instrument (your body) by means of easy exercises. The tools are very simple and very few. The center of the process is the effort of your attentiveness and your imagination.
I specialize in opera, but have helped singers from every walk of the art. Singer-songwriter students have been greatly supported by my composition background.
We typically start by those difficulties that most concern you about your singing. Students of all ages and experience levels are welcome.

About Andrea

To the potential interested student/parent:

Teaching has become a pleasant endeavor that I do with high ethical standards. I am committed to the cause of music, and to the timeless fellowship of the human spirit!

I play Piano or Guitar when accompanying my students. Please bring your songs!

About me:
I have been dedicated for the last 5 years to the study of the Operatic Voice, developing my soprano voice. Before that I earned two master-equivalent diplomas in music composition, and music theory. For a long time, composing songs and pieces of music, as well as studying guitar as a child, piano and percussion later, it all has been a means to further my vital singing fate, on which I persevere every day.

Jamie is AMAZING!!! We love him. He has been working with my daughter over the past year preparing her for auditions with DSA. The transformation in her singing voice is nothing shy of remarkable. She has always had a very pretty voice but now it is coupled with good voice control, projection, and everything that makes it go from aw, that's so nice, to WOW. Not only has his lessons helped with her singing, but he is very knowledgeable on all aspects of music, and has taught her sight reading, solfege, counting and rhythm, and all other aspects of music theory. Since we are auditioning with DSA, he also took it on himself to look up all the audition requirements and has been working with my daughter towards her audition. In addition to all technical stuff, he's very professional and great with my daughter. Has always been present on time, good with communication, and very patient with us. I've talked a lot about my experience with my child, but I do also think he is good with people of all ages. I've heard adults that have come before or after us in lessons and they sound great...there was a woman that was singing in another language and he was working with her on it! He truly is a great find. If you want to improve your voice and learn how to be a true vocal artist, he's your guy.

Adriane L.

Denver, CO

All levels of singers will learn proper breathing and technique.

About Adriane

For as long as I can remember, music has played a large part in my life. By the age ten, I already knew that music would be more than just a hobby for me, it would become my career. I have been singing for over 20 years, and began playing piano when I was eight years old. I received a BS in music industry studies with an emphasis on business, from the University of Colorado Denver in 2008. I have extensive experience in performance and the music industry as a business, and have had the pleasure of experiencing the local music scene first hand while playing in bands. My years of experience enab
les my students to learn different aspects of music from the fundamentals, to writing, and even the music industry as a business. Students should expect to quickly grasp the basic skills such as proper breathing and posture, and will start singing or playing right away. I truly enjoy sharing my love of music and the industry with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music lessons should be fun but educational. I want to know what your goals are and what you would like to get out of your lessons. Each lesson will be tailored to your specific goals and situation, so that you can get the most out of our time together. Whether music is a hobby, a career path, or something in between, you can expect to learn what interests you most. We can focus strictly on your instrument, or even go beyond and talk about song writing, or the music industry.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate room w/ piano w/seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
Singing- I specialize in the pop and rock genres, as well as show tunes.
