June 2013

Hi! My name is Kaia, I'm passionate about teaching students in the way that makes the most sense to them, & inspiring others to reach their potential. I am a singer-songwriter from Denver with a diverse background and years of teaching experience. I studied classical voice at CU Boulder 2008-2010, and songwriting & commercial music business at CU Denver 2010-2013. Teaching full-time since 2013, I LOVE helping students find their best natural sound and how to use their instrument. My strength is teaching fundamental basics in a way anyone can understand, using a variety of ways of thinking and learning. I encourage students to play & sing when they are interested and try composing their own songs. I've played classical piano 23 years, guitar 16 years, and taken voice lessons for 15 years (plus a degree). I also LOVE arranging & composing and translating this to Ableton and electronic music! Let me know how I can help you!

I enjoyed my first voice lesson, I have a lot to learn and I'm willing to work at what Kaia tells me to work at in order to get better. Kaia is extremely professional and really concentrated on what I knew and what I didn't know.

My niece wanted to take voice lessons and piano lessons. I found Kaia through Takelessons. She is wonderful!!!! my niece always looks forward to her lessons. Kaia takes the time to explain everything. Kaia does such a great job I have signed my husband up to take guitar lessons with her. I highly recommend her!!!!!!!

Kaia helped me so much more than just the guitar. Helped with music theory as well as some vocals. I intend to take more lessons with her after I complete my spring and summer travels. She helped me understand the entire fret board and I am so appreciative of all she helped me with. I would recommend her to beginners and veteran players and singers. She's great.

Kaia has been really terrific so far. She has a unique way of explaining complicated concepts in a way that is easy to understand and fun to learn. 10/10 would recommend.
