Hello new musical friend! My name is Mikey Smith and I'm looking forward to sharing my knowledge and passion for music with you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2003, and have loved helping my students acquire a foundational knowledge of how music works, gain comfort and facility through proper technique on their instrument, and, most importantly, to develop an appreciation and passion for music that will last them their entire lives! I went to the University of Colorado and earned a double major in Piano Performance and Recording Arts in 2017. I'm a very outgoing and friendly person and my teaching style is engaging, personalized, and fun! I look forward to helping you reach your goals!+ Read More
I taught piano, guitar, bass, and voice lessons at Neighborhood Music for over three years! I also led the NMS Jazz Program
I worked for 2 years at the School of Rock teaching piano, guitar, bass, and vocals. I also coached the rock bands for the performance program, and organized the school's music technology program.
I really appreciated the work that Mikey did with my son. He was great to work with and he made learning a blast. If you are looking for a cool and fun teacher then Mikey is your man.
My 11 year old son has been taking lessons with Mikey for almost 3 years. Mikey's approach is individualized, strength-based, flexible and truly fun! Completely different from the painful lessons I remember from childhood, marked by endless regurgitation of trite ditties, lessons with Mikey are built on a foundation of appreciating and creating beautiful music together, from the very first lesson. My son has some learning differences/challenges (ADHD, dyslexia) but these have never really been an issue during lessons- he and Mikey always work together on navigating what they want to learn, explore and create next.+ Read More
