Outstanding instructor of guitar. He goes above and beyond when it comes to teaching students how to play the guitar. He is very flexible, understanding, knowledgeable, and patient when he delivers his classes. Not only does he teach students how to play the guitar, he also does other things like teaching them how to tune their guitars, how to change keys when necessary to make a song sound better, and how to use a capo when playing the guitar. All of these are above and beyond what most teachers have taught me in the past. I really enjoy taking classes from my instructor.

Julian Y.

Boulder, CO

About Julian

I graduated with a Music BA from CU Boulder in May 2014. I have played in several bands on a variety of instuments including Bass, Drums, Guitar, Piano, Ukulele and Voice for the past 8 years. My classical training in combination with my experience as a song writer, multi-instrumentalist and band leader gives me a uniquely well-rounded teaching style. I aim to teach and inspire students to use music as a joyful platform for learning important skills such as diligent practice, cognitive flexibilty, and creative expression.

Growing up in Hawaii, and playing professionally in Colorado with pro
lific and talented instrumentalists and percussionists from around the world has instilled in me a passion for world music. I love to share my appreciation for eclecticism and nuance with my students by providing a curriculum that is based on my students interests.

I enjoy teaching aural skills, sight reading, and music theory as well as encouraging fun ways of using music to be more expressive, creative, coordinated and focused. I always tailor lessons to the goals of the student and parents, but after three months, a beginning student who so desires, can have a grasp of basic music theory, reading, and transcription as well as theoretical concepts like transposition and tonal analysis. If the goal is simply to have fun and develop more basic practical skills like playing along to some pop tunes or song writing, I love to incorporate those aspects as well, and I often find that they are complimentary.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach in my home studio in North Boulder. The studio has, piano, bass drums, guitar ukelele and vocal microphones. Students should bring their own instruments to in studio lessons (drums and piano provided in the studio) Parents may attend the lessons if they choose.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide all necessary materials for lessons, however it is necessary that students have their own instruments on which to play and practice. I may request that students buy some materials such as tuners (for stringed instruments) or lesson books.

*** Specialties ***
Reggae, Afro-music, funk, soul, blues and jazz

Julian has been wonderful to teach Music Theory as well as Piano. He has interesting methods and uses very solid music theory, to create a larger picture which leads to a full understanding of how piano works, and of the music you play on it.

Lessons are interesting and fun. Also I find them very well-rounded. Julian is a positive instructor and I find him very respectful and simply fun to learn from.

I highly recommend Julian Y.

It's difficult to find an instructor and I feel extremely lucky that I ended up studying with Julian. I was a beginning piano player but very interested in a strong music theory base for my studies. Julian has an extremely deep knowledge of music theory and application across many styles. We have probably spent as much time on theory as on playing (my choice/naturally where our lessons have gone). He is also an excellent guitar player and i have paired relearning guitar with the piano so our lessons can range widely from piano practice to theory to guitar and back.

I find Julian extremely easy to get a long with, very good at explaining theory and leading me to my own epiphanies and conclusions that have made learning continually exciting. He is a good communicator about lessons times and has been probably more flexible than i deserve in accommodating my schedule.

As we have progressed we are now working on song writing, music notation, jazz/staff notation, working through the REAL BOOK, ear training, etc..

My greatest fear was ending up with a very parochial or didactic instructor. Julian is anything but that. I look forward to my lessons every week and have increased my time with him to twice a week.

My son has been taking drum lessons from Julian for about six months now. Julian is fantastic with him. He seems very knowledgeable and his demeanor is perfect for kids (and adults!). He likes to incorporate other instruments into the lesson as well, since my son can also play piano. He has a nice energy during lessons, keeping a good balance of having fun and learning. He also just led my son in his first group experience, where he played drums while others played guitar and keyboard. Julian was amazing at keeping everyone on task, while having fun at the same time! I would recommend Julian as a music instructor for anyone and everyone. :)

Excellent Instructor Overall

"Awesome teacher" 5/5 stars Boulder Guitar Studio Review
I wouldn't consider getting instruction from anybody but Lee. From his lifetime devotion to music, he has an encyclopedic knowledge of musical styles and playing techniques, which he uses to customize lessons to the student's particular goals. Besides guitar and bass, I spent a lot of time with Lee studying songwriting -- he's an awesome writer himself and completely open about sharing all the things he has learned over the years.
That willingness to adapt to my particular needs and desires, along with his true passion for all types of music, makes Lee an outstanding teacher.
Pros: Helpful, Engaging, Encouraging, Smart, Patient, Funny, Fun, Good communicator- Derek Zahn, Boulder, CO, Oct 11, 2010

Mary F.

Denver, CO

About Mary

I've been playing piano since I was 6 yrs. old, and guitar and organ since I was 13. I've been able to use music in so many ways, and that is the opportunity I want for my students. From singing in school and church choirs, to accompanying and directing them, I've had a lot of enjoyable experiences. I've had the fun of performing solo and with bands, and have been teaching music for about 25 yrs, both privately and in the schools. My BA is in music education and my Masters is in individual performance. I've taught K-Jr College music classes in general music, chorus, piano, guitar, and theory.
I think my favorite form of teaching is still one-on-one lessons. Working with one student allows me to adjust my teaching to their particular learning style and needs.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm strict enough to make sure that my students make progress and get a strong musical foundation. I'm laid back enough to make sure that they have a good time doing so and can feel that they are setting their own goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Grand Piano, Electric Piano, Guitars at Home
Basic Piano and Organ at Church

*** Travel Equipment ***
Supplemental music books are loaned from time to time.
I expect the student to have an instrument to practice on and lesson books (purchased)

*** Specialties ***
classical guitar and piano, beginner banjo and vocals

Extremely patient

I've loved banjo music for years but never had the courage to learn how to play until recently. I'm a senior citizen with absolutely no musical background. What I like best about Mary is that she's totally patient and encouraging but at the same time pushes me out of my comfort zone so that I learn something new with each lesson. When I struggle with how to do something, she suggests different ways to attack the problem or ways to work around it. In just a few months she's helped me be able to play a song for someone that they can actually recognize, which was the first goal I had set for myself. I look forward to many more goals. I'm so glad to have Mary as my teacher!

Mary is an excellent teacher. Having been a teacher for 20 years, I tend to closely observe other teachers. Mary had much more to teach me than I was willing to learn. Playing the guitar is a psycho motor skill and as such it must be practiced diligently to gain the muscle memory necessary to perform the tasks. I didn't do it but Mary kept encouraging me and the more she did, the more I practiced, although I still fall woefully short of 30 minutes every day. Her lessons in music theory, however, are paying dividends since I also play some other instruments.
She is kind, patient, skilled and knows music inside out. I don't think I could have chosen a better teacher. I will start again as soon as I am able. Thanks Mary, job well done!

Caitlyn is a wonderful Flute teacher and her music education/experience/awards are very impressive. My 10 yr. old daughter had switched instruments many times before she started Flute lessons with Caitlyn and has finally found her interest! Thanks to the teacher to make it interesting for my daughter and help her discover her instrument. Caitlyn is a very friendly, enthusiastic and great teacher to work with. I would definitely recommend Caitlyn for anybody!

Why Are There Different Violin Sizes, and Why Does it Matter?
One of the main concerns that violin students and their parents typically have is purchasing the right-sized violin.

And once kids are in their teenage years, trying to keep up with growth spurts can be extremely difficult, especially considering how much violins cost. Even adults can run into problems when selecting the right size. Fortunately, after a little research, selectin
