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 taught 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

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 ...

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 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

Moving forward with an eye on a strong foundation

My daughter has had 2 other teachers. The first thing I noticed was that Nicole paid attention to technique, posture and sound quality. It took a bit, but she helped my daughter relearn some overlooked basics. The immediate difference was amazing. Then the approach Nicole takes in helping students learn to listen to and understand their own playing really increased my daughters motivation to improve. She has improved tremendously and is having fun doing it.

Nicole is an excellent teacher that understands her students and teaches them in a way that is geared toward them individually. She listens and is very patient. While not only encouraging the student, she also challenges them thus opening up creativity and a love for the violin.

Wonderful Teacher!

Our daughter had a previous violin instructor for 3 years and had a great foundation. However, we knew it was time to take her to the next level with technique and note reading. Nicole is very knowledgeable about violin technique, its history, and about music. My daughter has grown tremendously. Her intonation, note reading confidence, and rhythm has greatly improved. She has a new found excitement for her instrument again!

About Mike

Hi, I'm a professional drummer, percussionist, and composer here in Denver offering a fresh new approach to drum instruction. I teach at two separate locations complete with dual drum sets and a complete sound system that allows for both my students and I to play simultaneously and at full live volume! As a Graduate of the California Institute of the Arts, I've been lucky enough to have studied with some of the most diverse masters of drumset and percussion from several continents around the globe. I've been a player of the drums for over 26 years now, and I'm still practicing and perfecting the art, gaining new friends, students, and live stage experiences on the way.

My son has been taking drum lessons with Mike for several months. He had never played drums prior to his first lesson and Mike has been nothing but patient and very professional with him. My son really enjoys the lessons and is learning so much more than I expected. Super happy with Mike and his knowledge of the drums along with his patience and communication. Would highly recommend him!

Excellent Teacher

Mike is a great Drum instructor. I am a beginner and felt he did a great job with my skill level. He has a lesson plan but is very flexible in learning the style of music you want to hear. He helps you achieve the goal you have with drums whether it is to be in a band or just for a hobby.

Lessons are fun and detailed without being boring.

Mike creates a fun environment when he teaches drumming,i would definitely recommend people who have an interest in drumming to go learn from Mike. He's very talented and admits he's a bit weird but the way he teaches is just fun. he's always telling you what he liked about how you're drumming and how you can improve.
