Teaching since:

I have been playing and studying piano for over 16 years. I graduated from University of Colorado at Boulder with a Bachelor's of Arts in Piano Performance. I have studied with a wide variety of teachers, which gives me the ability play various composers and styles.

I teach beginner/intermediate students of all ages. We will make a personalized goal for each student, and then create a plan to reach this goal.

Students will first learn how to get comfortable at the piano. They will learn where they keys are and the correct posture/hand placements. In addition, students will learn how to...
- Read Music
- Rhythm Practice
- Basic Music Theory

For students who are already familiar with piano, we will work to advance those skills, and introduce more challenging repertoire. Students will study topics such as...
- Building technique
- Basic/Intermediate Music Theory
- Dissecting a piano score
- Sight Reading

My kids love their weekly lessons with Colby! I can really hear the difference in their playing ever since they started lessons with her. Plus she has stickers, and everybody loves stickers.
