David V

Instruments:

Personally and as a "Music Teacher" I believe, the intricacies of musical expression are not so complex as to when an intimate relationship is entered into by the aspiring artist and his/her dreams of music. For then, a marvelous world in which the artist lives, sings, plays and paints his/her music in, presents itself as a limitless wonder. Born in South Bend Indiana at the age of eight I became very interested in music used in our lively church services. One day, while curiously fidgeting around with the piano, I figured out how to play a nice rhythmic tune including the changes needed to play and sing along with it. Finally, culminating the tune to a nice resolve pleasant to the ear, I was very excited. While playing this tune in church before service, one of the Deacons exclaimed, "Hey stop playing that "Boogey Woogey" in here." I was barely nine at the time and it was a few years later that I realized I had by ear figured out the I, IV and V (V7) chords to the "Blues" and "Boogey Woogey." This began my musical journey into a world of beauty and expression that has lasted me a life time. The many different sounds that each instrument produces, as well as the most natural instrument the voice, were stunningly amazing to me. The "love affair" continues. Growing up in an environment where gospel music was the music of choice by adults, my growth and exposure to other styles was fueled solely by my curiosity. Starting out with only the instruments available to me in church, in third grade I was presented with the Tonette.  Progressing to the Trumpet, I was exposed to written music and was taught to read. I have performed in theatres, orchestras, marching bands, jazz bands, tent revivals, bars and lounges. During this time, I developed my own personal style of singing, playing and performing. At fifteen, I discovered the guitar. "Wow!" Now here was an instrument I could play and sing with at the same time.  After hearing that guitar line on "Stevie Wonder's" "Very Superstitious" (1973)... I had to play that instrument.  Self-taught with a great ear, I soaked up everything I could from recordings and other musicians.  I played in Blues, gospel, country, soul and rock bands.  I just played everywhere with everyone I could. At 17, I started teaching my family and friends how to play different instruments. I had entered the realm of becoming a teacher. I recorded my first album at 18 with a Gospel group called the "Children of Truth" started by Fred Huff (vocalist/drummer) and I.   As a group we performed on a local morning Television show, outside venues, churches and prisons.  The album was a milestone for me. It brought it all into perspective. I was hooked on music! After 15 exciting years of touring with different groups I gained experience and knowledge, both good and bad about the "Music Industry." Experiences like writing and composing two top 20 hit songs, which my name is not associated with.  Experiences like these are enough to ruin anyone’s aspirations.  To trust or to copyright should never be the question!  Copyright!  The "school of hard knocks" i.e., the streets lends itself to experiences, so valuable, though they try, they cannot teach them in class rooms.  They can lecture about it, but that's not experiencing it.  I wouldn't trade my experiences for a record deal.  Why?  Without understanding sustainability is lost. The love of music is my motivation and satisfaction in life.

Brooke M

Instruments:

I am a very fun, patient, and outgoing teacher. I love working with all ages! I teach in the Denver and Parker area.

Susan F

Instruments:

I have a great breadth and depth of experience with instrumental music education. Clarinet has been my primary performance instrument, but I have found over the years that the techniques that I use to teach clarinet are easily and successfully transferable to the other instruments that I teach. Besides the clarinet, I also teach saxophone, guitar, violin and piano throughout the Colorado Springs area.

More Information About Piano Lessons

A keyboard or digital piano is a perfectly acceptable alternative to an acoustic piano for the purposes of lessons and practice. The major advantages of keyboards are the cheap price, portability and the possibility of playing with headphones, which means being able to practice without disturbing others. When buying a keyboard, look to get one with a weighted hammer action and as many keys as possible - a minimum of 61 should suffice. Weighted keys with most resemble the touch sensitivity of a real piano. The most common brands are Casio, Korg and Yamaha. If possible, look to purchase an upright or bay grand piano.
Taking piano lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning to the play the instrument. Finding the additional time out of a busy schedule to transport your child to and from their lessons can be difficult, making home lessons a convenient, time and money saving option. The only thing necessary for home lessons is a keyboard or piano to play on! There is no difference between the lesson content of studio or home lessons - only the location is different. Home lessons help provide a safe, familiar and comfortable learning environment for students.
All students start their lessons at different levels of experience and with different aims and goals in mind. For beginner students who are new to the piano, lessons will be devised to give students the fundamentals of good piano playing. Students will learn the correct posture, hand position and fingering techniques for playing scales and chords. Students can develop these skills through practising scales, arpeggios and simple melodies using both hands. For advanced students, they will cover more intricate skills, such as creating runs and fills to add interest and variation to their playing, to develop their repertoire of pieces they can play and to develop their sight reading. Some students may have a specific genre that they are interested in learning, such as jazz piano. Students will learn the musical theory and techniques that underly a host of musical genres. Musika teachers are able to recommend books or specific areas of additional study that they feel will advance each individual student and help to achieve their goals.
Learning a new musical skill as an adult is a great way to keep your brain fresh! We have many adult students actively taking lessons with us, and this actually represents around 50% of our student base. Our instructors will offer an individually tailored lesson plan to the needs of an adult student. You will learn the technique of the instrument, specific repetoire suited to your skill level, and learn how to read music and sight read.
Due to the attention span of very young children, we advise that students begin their piano lessons no younger than age 4 or 5. Piano lessons are a great way to introduce an instrument for the first time to a younger child, as learning piano will teach them basic musicianship skills like rhythm and harmony, and how to read sheet music and chords.
