About Daniel
Now accepting students in Aurora, Co. and surrounding areas!!!

In addition to teaching music, I have also worked as a special education assistant and wrestling/track coach at Lake Zurich Middle School South and an assistant Kung Fu/Tai Chi instructor at Green Mountain Arts in Logan Square, Chicago, Illinois. Jazz piano, Voice, and Composition are my main areas of expertise. However, I have also been recording, and playing guitar almost my entire life. I fully believe in music education not only for entertainment and personal enjoyment, but for many other means. Beyond its capacity for being
used as entertainment, music aids in learning, helps develop advanced motor skills, increases memory function, and many other purposes for a well rounded education. It is my goal to help educate the next generation in traditional music practices as well as incorporate new techniques that are relevant to our current day and age.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lesson plans vary from person to person. I always make it a point to get to know the student's existing musical knowledge, goals, and background before I create a personalized lesson plan. All important concepts are covered as they are needed so students can understand theoretical concepts based upon actual application and usage. In short, I teach in a way that students can "dig in" right away and play, create, improvise, sing and/or compose freely and naturally. I always encourage students or parents to contact me with their goals, previous musical training, etc., and discuss what they really want out of lessons so they can get the most out of taking me on as an instructor.

About Amber
Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role.
Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.)
I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to con
tinue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production.
Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at the UNT commencement ceremonies. This led to an offer to tour Italy with the Rome Festival Orchestra. For the next two summers I performed in Copenhagen, Istanbul, Rome and Berlin with the Berlin Philharmonic.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students progress VERY quickly! As a teacher, I can easily identify my students’ strengths and weaknesses, and plan an individualized study course. I will instill a solid set of production skills that will easily serve ANY style of music you choose (from rock to opera.)
I will make for you a personalized recording for you to practice with daily. We will also work on songs you LOVE!
My students will have performance opportunities every 3 months. I will prepare you for college entrance auditions, TV contests, and television appearances. My students make extraordinary progress-I want you to become one of them!

*** Studio Equipment ***
10x15 dedicated music room, piano, lovely mountain view, mirrors, microphone and sound equipment available for students. The parents of students are welcome to stay in the room with the students, if they choose.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a piano and I will purchase the method book I want the student to use but I do require reimbursement for books and shipping if required. Student provides notebooks and pens.

*** Specialties ***

About a year ago I decided I wanted to start writing poetry again. It was something I’d enjoyed doing years before, but I stopped because I had trouble completing poems or felt that the ones I did complete were not as good as they could be. I then decided that I needed to find someone who would guide me through the process and offer feedback and guidance along the way. I was very fortunate to find Thomas Ramey Watson. He is a pleasure to work with. I have been working with Tom on a weekly basis for almost a year. As an educator and writer of poetry, prose, and scholarly articles, Tom's extensive literary knowledge enhances my ability to add depth and breadth to my own work. We generally begin each session with a poem that I feel I have worked through the best I can. Going line by line, stanza by stanza, Tom helps me discover parts of the poem I may want to explore further and helps me accentuate the most powerful parts of the poem. He tells me what he thinks works and what does not, and offers concise guidance on ways to improve. It has been a joy to watch my poetry evolve in different ways and for them truly to come to life. I would encourage anyone who wants to write the best poetry they can to consider working with Tom. He won't write it for you, but he will give you the tools and guidance needed to do it yourself. I've learned that writing a poem is truly a process, and it can take a considerable amount of time to complete just one poem. However, when your poem is done, you will know that it truly is done and be left with a piece of writing that you can be proud of.

I am confident that anyone who has worked with him on various forms of prose writing and studied literature with him can say the same.

I was really pleased with my first session with Thomas. I signed up with Thomas because I wanted someone to help me develop a poem that I am working on. Thomas offered some very valuable feedback and ideas to strengthen my work. To find someone with so much experience as an educator, someone who has written several books, and someone who is passionate about what they do is really quite a gift. I would encourage anyone who is looking to become a better writer to consider Thomas. I am looking forward to my future sessions with him.

About Kevin
I truly enjoy teaching. I've taught in the public school classroom for 11 years. Teaching music is so so much FUN! And it should be fun for the students to learn. When I'm teaching I tell all my students that if they don't enjoy and smile about something, then we need to change something.

I would love to start lessons with you soon.

About Spencer
I'm a senior student at the University of Colorado - Boulder, and I'm a History major with an emphasis in American History. The boring part about me is that I have an "A" range GPA with exemplary test scores in reading, writing, and composition. However, the most helpful experience I've ever had in writing was simply by tutoring others, like you. I'm candid in my teaching style, and to best help you in writing endeavors the most important thing I can do is let you express yourself naturally. Formulaic rubrics such as "5 Paragraph Essays" are not the ticket to being a better writer. What's most
important is a strong argument. I want to help you bring out that inner voice.

I'm a massive dork when it comes to History, and have read a biography on every President of the United States. I love to share my historical fun facts with my friends and family, even though it often drives them crazy when they aren't as excited as me! I look forward to working with you!

I was really struggling with my AP English Comp class and Spencer was a wealth of knowledge to get me into the right head space for writing. His approach just makes you feel comfortable with your words. It's weirdly comforting to know your essay makes sense to even you!!!
