About Janet

I am outgoing, encouraging, friendly, and have a good sense of humor. Music is a passion, and teaching is my vocation. I have been on the music faculty of Colorado State University, University of Puget Sound, and Duke University, and I was the contracted keyboardist with the Southwest Symphony Orchestra for many years. These professional teaching experiences have taught me much about teaching and the needs of students, and all this I bring to your lesson. My musical interests are not strictly classical. I adore jazz and pop and was even the lobby pianist for the Westin Hotels. I am here to help you with whatever style music you love.

*** Lesson Details ***
General Information about lessons—
• In-studio lessons on grand piano and/or harpsichord
• Ages 4 and to 99 years of age (and older!!)
• Levels beginner and advanced


• Classical, Pop, Broadway, and Standards

I offer lessons always with a smile, encouragement, and plenty of positive feedback. I have many years of experience teaching piano and music theory, and I promise that your lessons will be enjoyable and rewarding. Learning music must be built upon a strong relationship between teacher and student, and this is relationship involves good communication, honesty, open mindedness, and a recognition that all students are different and at various skill levels. These are my guiding principles. Although I am a classically trained pianist, I have experience as keyboardist with an eclectic trio playing anything and everything from pop to jazz, and as the lobby pianist with the Westin Hotels. I approach teaching by first knowing and understanding the student's musical goals, and teaching fundamentals, theory, and technique through the style of music that the student wants to learn. The Alfred Piano Methods—used by many universities—is my preferred instructional books for the beginner and intermediate student, but I am also quick to supplement with additional FUN material tailored to the student’s interests whenever possible. Learning music will promote confidence in your abilities and satisfaction in your accomplishments!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ grand piano, harpsichord, and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
I enjoy teaching students of all ages and have had success with students as young as 4 as well as 65 years of age. Particularly satisfying is helping adults reach life-long goals of learning music. I excel in teaching the classical repertory, but I have a passion for popular music and other types as well.

About Hannah

Do you want to learn to write and sing music? Are you interested in Melody, Lyrics, Arrangements or even the Business side of the industry? If any of these tickle your fancy, I would love to be your teacher! Whether you are a rockstar in the shower, or you have no musical experience, I can help you find the tools and to learn the skills you need to reach your goals!

Biography:
Raised in a family of devout music lovers, Hannah found the joy of singing and songwriting at a young age. When the time came she attended Brigham Young University, where she received her degree in Commercial Music with an emphasis in Singing and Songwriting. She teaches voice and songwriting alongside her career as an artist.

Teaching Philosophy:
I work closely with students to create a safe environment for learning and growth. We return the voice to its n

atural state with a science based approach. Each exercise has a purpose to help strengthen the systems used in healthy singing. Through this approach students effectively expand range, improve vocal tone and breath control. Once the voice is optimized through healthy technique, limitations fall to the wayside.

Age Range and Abilities Taught:
Male and Female 5 and up, I have extensive work with individuals with handicaps, learning disabilities and vocal damage due to things like muscular dystrophy, nodes, vocal cord paralysis, and reflux.

I took Tom's violin lesson almost 6 years ago when I was visiting the US and trying to find a violin teacher during my staying. I was very lucky to meet Tom on craigslist. Tom is a very talented violinist, I always enjoyed his music when he demonstrated the phrase for me. He gave me many ideas about the music expression and many knowledge that I've never had before. He always encouraged me even if I knew I was not good enough. I still remembered the way he taught me to play the scales with metronome and remembered those fun moments working with him.

About Kaia

Hi! My name is Kaia, I'm passionate about teaching students in the way that makes the most sense to them, & inspiring others to reach their potential. I am a singer-songwriter from Denver with a diverse background and years of teaching experience. I studied classical voice at CU Boulder 2008-2010, and songwriting & commercial music business at CU Denver 2010-2013. Teaching full-time since 2013, I LOVE helping students find their best natural sound and how to use their instrument. My strength is teaching fundamental basics in a way anyone can understand, using a variety of ways of thinking and learning. I encourage students to play & sing when they are interested and try composing their own songs. I've played classical piano 23 years, guitar 16 years, and taken voice lessons for 15 years (plus a degree). I also LOVE arranging & composing

and translating this to Ableton and electronic music! Let me know how I can help you!

About Becca

I am a friendly, outgoing, and passionate music teacher! I play the harp and piano and absolutely love to spread the joy of music. I started playing the harp because my grandmother was a harpist and I thought it was the most beautiful instrument. After all these years, I still love the amazing sound of the harp. I completed my degree in Harp Performance from University of Denver's Lamont School of Music where I received a well-rounded education in both performance and academics (including theory, history, and technology). Please let me know if you have any questions- can't wait to get started!

Bgcheck Background Checked


About Rachel

I am studying to become a professional classical singer, and am enrolled as a Masters degree candidate in Voice and Opera at Mannes School of Music. Through my own training, I have discovered that having an amazing teacher – one who is supportive, caring, and hard working, and who will push you and work with you to be better – is the most important tool an aspiring musician can have. I believe that every student is different; no person's body is the same, and no vocal instrument is the same.

Based on my performance in the Teaching of Singing course at Oberlin Conservatory of Music, where I just graduated with my Bachelors in Music as a Voice Performance major with a Music History minor, I was selected to be a voice teacher to non-Conservatory students at Oberlin College. I have now had several students, two of whom, with my assistan

ce, have just been accepted to prestigious summer programs in classical voice.

I am a native New Yorker, and I am a proud alum of LaGuardia High School, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Manhattan School of Music's Pre-College program, and the Boston University Tanglewood Institute. I am also proud to have received the Graduation award for top vocalist in my year at LaGuardia. All of these programs helped to shape who I am, both as a performer and as a teacher, and I am excited to pass on what I learned.

As a singer myself, I have discovered countless techniques and tricks to help every aspect of singing, as well as the discovery that what works for some people does not necessarily work for others, and that's ok! The voice is individual because it is inherently unique to the person it belongs to. It is the exciting, demanding, and amazing work of a teacher to bring out each individual's voice, and I love discovering a person's voice with them. I can't wait to work with you and find your voice!

Rachel is a great vocal instructor and gave me the confidence to learn and discover my own voice. As a beginner with no experience in vocal training, I was able to learn the basics of posture, setup and breath and of course singing. I enjoyed lessons with Rachel and would highly recommend working with her.

Monica Z.
Rachel is absolutely awesome. Makes me feel so comfortable which helps me to be 100% myself including my funny mistakes. I feel that I am learning and understanding music and singing a lot.

Olivia
Rachel was extremely patient and could figure out how to help a new singer like me navigate their body and find a true sound. Her positive feedback encouraged me to do better along with her comforting wit and humorous exercises that really made me open up. I believe she was the absolute best person to help me along and open up more than I had ever before and I think if she continues educating that she will do amazing things, and have fun all the while!

About Chaz

Let's get past the confusion and frustration of learning a new program and get to the source of why we bought it! To have fun! And express ourselves through sound!

You tell me what you want to get out of the learning experience. We can set up a course curated to what your music goals are. All genres are welcome and like I said the only limits should be our imaginations.

I've been excited to put my musical thoughts down but super intimidated by Ableton and all that goes with it. Chaz made me feel like a creative force and taught me how to get my ideas down on digital paper. He's a patient teacher who doesn't come with an agenda but rather works to yours. Can't wait for our next session.

Chaz is not only an amazing talent, he's also an incredible teacher. I found every lesson informing and creative. Chaz has a way to make learning fun and exciting. I can't wait to take what I've learned and use it within my own workflow. Do not hesitate to work with Chaz, if you're overwhelmed with doubt in learning a new program, hit up Chaz to help, not only open, but BLOW your mind with knowledge....do yourself a favor and just DO IT!
