*** Lesson Details **

I am a teacher that helps you reach whatever goals you set for yourself. You tell me what you want to accomplish and I will work together with you to make i
t happen. I will create a curriculum according your personal needs and skill level.

If you are taking lessons with me you will learn lots of music theory and music history. I want you to understand the style and reasoning behind each piece of music you play.

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 studen
t.
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.

About Michi
Hello!

I've been playing drums for 15+ years and have studied with the following great drummers: Jeffrey Kraus, Peter Jarvis, Joel Rosenblatt, Kimberly Thompson, Dom Famularo, and Stephane Chamberland.

Throughout high school and college, I played in percussion ensembles and rock bands, performing throughout New York City and New London. Currently, I write and play my own music for a solo project called East River Soundtracks.

I offer drum lessons for beginners that cover all of the basics necessary for you to become not only a great drummer but a great MUSICIAN. The curriculum will consist of four main pillars: technique, groove, reading, and musicianship.

I absolutely LOVE this instrument and am excited to help you get started on it!

All best,

Michi

Michi is a GREAT drum teacher! He is very technical and knows how to teach you the basic motions of drumming that will prevent you from become injured as you become more advance. He's also very down to earth and open to modifying lessons to suit your needs - for example... I wanted to learn technique but also how to do basic grooves so I could play along with music on my own and with friends. I learned a lot and had fun hanging out with him. Highly recommend! Thanks Michi!

About Mark
Playing the trumpet is a joy and passion I love sharing with my students. Seeing each trumpeter progress as an individual on a path of discovery and learning gives me pride and pleasure. From beginners to high school and college students, to come-back players, I help each student create and set goals, and encourage them in the musical journey we make together.
I’ve taught hundreds of students of every level and discovered many secrets along the way to performing better with greater ease and efficiency. My 25 years of trumpet teaching experience and 13 years serving as Principal Trumpet with an orchestra have given me a wealth of musical knowledge which enriches my teaching methods. From smart practicing tips to performance techniques, I help all my students get the best preparation advice. My experience as a trumpet soloist in Europe and
the USA working with orchestras, pianists, vocalists, and organists has also given me a deep understanding of the art of music making as a soloist.

I have taught at colleges, public and private schools, as well as an international school in Portugal. I am now looking to expand my studio online, and invite new students who are excited about playing the trumpet.
Studying trumpet methodologies has given me insight into solving many problems brass students encounter as they learn to play. My methods help students tackle challenging music, understand theory and harmony, and prepare technically, musically, and emotionally for performances.
My students learn how to extend their range up and down the horn, broaden their tonal and dynamic palette of sound, and gain confidence and endurance in their playing abilities. Through coaching and creative imagination, I empower my students to reduce performance anxiety and develop more comfort and control in playing the trumpet. My students benefit also from learning techniques I’ve developed such as informed sight reading, transposition freedom, tone enhancement, breath control, ornamentation and improvisation.
I have great teachers to thank from the Boston Symphony, Boston Pops, Philadelphia Orchestra, Israel Philharmonic and other orchestras, as well as trumpet soloists who shaped and broadened my knowledge over many years of study. I invite you to watch my videos and look forward to helping you advance as a trumpeter and musician.

About Kenji
Raised in Southern California, jazz saxophonist Kenji Lee has already made his mark as a remarkable improviser, composer, and musician. He is the protege and former bandmate of late-great bassist Roger Shew. A resident of Ann Arbor, Michigan, Kenji currently performs frequently as a leader with "Sakura" - a creative music ensemble featuring string quartet, with "Juarez - Lee - Alvarez" - a chordless trio, and with PAUL JAMS - a hip/hop electronic duo. Kenji also works as a sideman in many groups including NY based Davy Lazar's Antigoat. He has also lent his talents to the pop/hip-hop realm, performing with the likes of Allen Stone, Vic Mensa, and Lil Dicky.

Kenji began playing piano at age 4, clarinet at age 9, saxophone at 13, and contrabass at age 15. His love of improvised music blossomed out of his musical relationship with many
Southern California jazz heavyweights, including Roger Shew and Jeff Ellwood. On the advice of his mentor Roger Shew, Kenji attended the University of Michigan to study with some of his musical heroes including Benny Green, Robert Hurst, and Andrew Bishop.

Kenji has performed and worked with some of the most legendary names in jazz including Gary Burton, Carl Allen, Kendrick Scott, Ingrid Jensen, Michael Formanek, Jon Irabagon, Robert Hurst, and Benny Green. In April 2015, Kenji traveled to New York City to perform a series of original compositions for large ensemble at Carnegie Hall as a part of the historic Carnegie Hall Heritage Festival. Later that year, Kenji won the coveted title of "2015 Orange County Register Artist of the Year" (Instrumental Music).

Kenji has performed at various venues across the country including Carnegie Hall (New York City, NY), The Detroit Jazz Festival (Detroit, MI), Cliff Bell's (Detroit, MI), 2018 JEN Conference (Dallas, TX), Ziggy's (Ypsilanti), Jazz Central Studios (Minneapolis, MN), Bert's (Detroit, MI), Kerrytown Concert House (Ann Arbor, MI), Hill Auditorium(Ann Arbor, MI), Steamer's Jazz Cafe (Fullerton, CA), and Renee & Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall (Costa Mesa, CA).

His debut record with "Juarez - Lee - Alvarez" will be released in the Spring of 2018.

Kenji currently splits his time between, performing professionally, teaching, and working as the Canterbury House's Concert Series Coordinator.

About Tyler
Our first lesson will be an assessment of your past musical experience and your future goals. From there, I determine the path we should take. No two students are the same, and I feel that our lessons should be tailored towards the interests and passions of the student, whether that be classical, jazz, pop, composing, or anything else. I will work to make sure each student is aware of what they need to do to succeed and do my best to be available outside of lesson times to answer any questions they have along the way.
