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.

BEGINNER STUDENTS

- Basic Music Theory

INTERMEDIATE STUDENTS

- Building technique
- Basic/Intermediate Music Theory

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.
