Featured Stapleton Guitar Teachers

Erika S

Instruments:

I am a lifelong musician from a musical family. I majored in biology and music in college, graduating with honors, and then earned a PhD. in cognitive science, the study of how people think, learn, read and remember. I use my understanding of how the brain works to customize music lessons for each student's learning needs. I am a friendly, outgoing person and my students often hear me encouraging them to play or sing LOUDER! I live in beautiful Golden, Colorado with my husband and two teenage-musician kids, two dogs, and four cats. I love to swim, hike, play racquetball, ski, grow organic vegetables in my backyard, read, watch movies, and of course play, sing and dance with other musicians. My home music studio is called the Rainbow Room because there is a rainbow on the ceiling, and I am the director of the Golden Learning Institute for Music, Movement, Education and Research. I always take my instruments out of their cases when they arrive home from their travels.  

Jarett M

Instruments:

I'm a professional educator with a passion for music. I hold a Master of Education degree in Educational Administration from DePaul University, and have studied guitar, mandolin and music theory at The Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago. I've played mandolin and guitar in several stringbands, and currently perform with Chain Station, based in Denver, CO. Aside from guitar and mandolin, I also play the fiddle. I teach these instruments, as well as the piano, out of my home studio in Denver, CO and the DaVinci Center for Creative Arts, with two locations in Metro Denver.

Johanna N

Instruments:

I am an enthusiastic music teacher who is dedicated to helping her students grow. I am continuously learning about the music field and am currently working on my dissertation on music and cognition. I have taught music lessons for over 10 years and love it more every day.  I teach mainly from my church because it is a comfortable and safe atmosphere and it is easy for everyone to find. You will find that lessons are fun and focused on the style you want to learn. I can teach classical, pop, blues, jazz and rock. I can also teach some country and harder rock sounds as well. The main focus is learning technique and then adding in the style you enjoy. 

Travis C

Instruments:

I am a fun, exuberant and encouraging guitar teacher who loves teaching and sharing the joy of music.  I will be graduating with my Master in Music degree from the University of Denver in the fall of 2013, where I also received my Bachelors of Music in 2009.  As a teacher of beginning students and aspiring professionals, I believe that everyone can learn how to play the guitar well!

Ryan S

Instruments:

My love of music began at a young age through playing piano, percussion, and guitar and continued to grow throughout my years of schooling.  I graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver in May of 2013 with my Bachelor of Music degree with a Concentration in Music Composition.  I have since been spreading my knowledge of music throughout my local community through teaching, playing, and composition.  I have released two music albums, one in 2011 and the other in 2013, in which I played percussion, drum set, guitar, bass guitar, keyboard, and sang while also recording, electronically programming, composing, and producing the albums myself.  I have been building my studio for over eight years and have acquired many pieces of equipment that help me teach, compose, play, and produce music.  I have a driving passion to enhance the value of music in the Denver Metro area and I believe that teaching music to anyone and everyone who seeks to understand it is the first step.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Where possible, it is beneficial for younger students to begin their guitar lessons on a smaller sized guitar. Half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars are the most suitable guitars for young beginners. Older students who can manage to hold their guitar comfortably may wish to start out by using an electric guitar. For $150 - $200, a brand new student model guitar can purchased. However, this price does not include the cost of buying an amplifier or guitar leads, which are essential for an electric guitar player, and will therefore incur additional costs. Students will typically have fun and enjoy playing an instrument dependent on how easy they find it to play. Consider that higher quality instruments are often nicer and easier to play when looking to buy a guitar.
Musika specializes in individually tailored, one-on-one guitar lessons in the comfort of your home. Whether your child learns in the studio or at home, the quality and content of each lesson will remain exactly the same. Home guitar lessons reduce the burden on parents to transport their children and equipment to their lesson, which saves time and money and helps to integrate lessons into busy work schedules. Musika prides itself on creating fun, engaging guitars lessons in an environment that students feel comfortable and familiar with - important conditions for their musical development.
Our guitar students will learn how to hold, tune, and familiarize themselves with the components and notes of the guitar, basic playing techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and learning the various chord-types that they will need in order to play their favourite songs, such as power chords, open chords and barre chords. Students will also get to learn music theory, and will cover such aspects as; reading music, learning different scales, and how to apply these different elements together as part of a full composition. Students will learn the theory and techniques that underlie a wide range of musical genres, and will have fun developing their guitar playing during their lessons. Eventually, students will get to enjoy learning and playing along to their favorite songs!
At Musika, we recommend that adult students looking to start guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind. Whether you are a beginner looking to get started and learn the basics, or an advanced player looking to push their skills that little bit further, our experienced teachers can help you to achieve those goals. It can take several months before you start to see serious progress towards your goals, as you slowly develop the techniques and skills over time. The quickest and most efficient way to achieve your guitar playing goals is to take regular lessons and practice diligently.
Students are able to start taking guitar lessons with Musika at age 6. For students this young, we recommend that they start off by using a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings. Students in this age group will start by learning to play simple melodies using the top strings of the guitar, as will be able to progress on to forming chords and playing more advanced songs by the ages of 7-8 years old. Students are able to graduate to using a full sized guitar by ages 10-12, and will likely want to learn to play rock on an electric guitar.
