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.

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

We suggest students purchase a piano or keyboard for their lessons, as they will need to practice every day in order to develop their skills on the instrument. We recommend a keyboard with weighted keys, as this will feel most similar to an actual piano. An actual piano will have 88 keys, but most keyboards start from 65 keys and go up from there. Common keyboard brands found at music stores are Yamaha, Casio, and Korg. Many keyboard sets will come with a case, stand, headphones, and may even offer recording features for recording your own playing.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home piano lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule - students will need a keyboard to practice on, however. For younger students in particular, having piano lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying playing the piano.
As piano lessons are customized to the needs of each individual student, we are able to better help you to achieve your goals. Beginner students may just want to learn an instrument out of interest and for fun - so the basics will be covered to get you up and running. This will include music theory and technical exercises, such as hand position, fingering and playing scales and chords. Intermediate students may be working towards an exam, recital or performance, so will cover playing, performance and stylistic techniques such as legato, staccato, glissando, sight reading, exploring harmonics and working on speed - runs, fills and solos. Other topics that may be covered in your piano lessons are things like piano modes, expanding your repertoire, developing improvisation and jamming skills and studying the various types of genre-based playing techniques and styles, such as Jazz, Ragtime, Blues, Rock or Classical piano.
For adults who are looking to learn to play the piano, we recommend that they do so with some clear goals in mind. Maybe you want to learn to play some of your favourite songs, pass an exam or write your own music? Whatever the aim, our experienced teachers can help unlock the skills necessary to make those goals a reality. It can take time to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the piano to a competent level. However, playing the piano is a great stress reliever, keeps you mentally active and can help with your hearing and fine-motor skills.
Children are recommended to start piano lessons no earlier than age 4 or 5. The attention span and personality of the child are something to consider when thinking of taking lessons. Even if your child has no evident musical inclinations, piano lessons offer a great option for introducing your child to music. During their lessons children will learn how to read music, fundamentals of musicianship and sight reading, music theory techniques, and ear training.
