Trey was ecstatic about his music teacher and the fact that he is going to learn how to make music come out of the piano.
He is looking forward to his next lesson.

When we realized that our daughter Veronica enjoyed singing and showed keen interest in music, we decided to put her through some formal training in vocals. One of our friends referred us to Ms. Denise.

Ms. Denise is an excellent teacher. She taught our daughter vocals for almost two years. Our daughter had the most wonderful time with her. She focuses on strong fundamentals, instills confidence in students and makes the whole experience enjoyable.

About Patrice
My interest is in developing singers to become a better version of themselves and help them reach their goals. Many of my students are singing professionally in Colorado, New York and internationally.

Background includes international and national performance credits in both opera and musical theatre. My last major gig was Carlotta in Andrew Lloyd Webber's German production of Phantom of the Opera in Hamburg, Germany for ten years.
We sang eight times a week in German! All backstage activities were in English due to the truly International cast. I loved every minute of living and working in Continental Europe.

In May, I'll be singing one of the leading soprano roles with Opera Fort Collins in The Fairy Queen by Purcell. I'm hoping my costume will have a set of white wings like the Gynbourne production.

I had a great experience learning from Aaron. I was a brand new piano player with no knowledge of the instrument or music in general. Aaron was very patient and diligent in teaching me how to set a musical foundation. If you have the pleasure of working with him you will see why he is so highly rated.

About Danbi
Hello! I am a classically trained violinist. I did my undergraduate training at the Boston Conservatory and Berklee College of Music. All of my teachers during my time in Boston were violinists from Boston Symphony Orchestra, one of the best orchestras in the world. By having them as my teachers, I learned that having a good teacher that focuses on the foundational violin techniques, of which allows advancements to build on top, is indispensable.

I have performed at Boston Symphony Hall, Jordan Hall, Conrad Presby Hall, Harvard Theater, and much more with world renowned musicians and conductors.

While I am fundamentally a classically trained violinist, I love to play and listen to all genres of music from classical to EDM to 70s classics. Most importantly, playing music should be fun and the purest form of self expression. I love to he
lp my students find the joy and beauty of music.

Personally in my practice routine, I always start with fundamentals like scales, arpeggios, double stops, and some bowing exercises. This allows your mind and body to warm up and get used to making full, ringing sounds. I hope by taking lessons with me, you as a student learn not only the violin but also the delight of music in general! :)
