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

Keyboards are a convenient option for practice and lessons as they afford students the options of portability and the use of headphones for practice. They are also cheaper and more space-conscious than an acoustic piano. Look to buy a keyboard that has a minimum of 61 keys, and a weighted hammer action. This will ensure your keyboard closest resembles the playability of a real piano. The most popular brand are Roland, Yamaha and Korg. If it is possible, buying an acoustic piano will offer the most rewarding learning experience for students, and provides market resale value.
In home lessons are what 90% of our students request. Not only does this provide a convenient means to study music, but we also notice no difference in the quality of lessons done in home or in studio. They are typically structured the same. The main benefit of in-home lessons is the reduction in travel time to another location, and additionaly the student may be able to focus better in your own home since they are familiar with it. Piano lessons in the home offer a practical choice for your family for learning the skill of playing a musical instrument.
Piano lessons are usually structured around a series of method books which are recommended by the teacher, and can be purchased at a local music store or online. Lessons for a beginner usually start with familiarizing the student with the piano as well as beginner level technique. This will include learning the notes on the piano, and learning basic scales, like major and minor scales. Beginners will start by learning how to play scales using the correct finger techniques with both bands until they develop their speed and co-ordination. Eventually students will start off by playing simple melodies - often nursery rhymes - that utilize and put the fingering techniques into practice. Students will also learn the various types of chord, from simple major and minor chords, through to 7th chords, slash chords and diminished chords. Students will also develop their sight reading and music theory knowledge throughout their lessons.
At Musika, we highly recommend that students looking to learn to play the piano do so with a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favourite tunes, reacquaint yourself with the piano, or just to play for fun, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality. Learning, developing and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can actually be quicker during adulthood as the complex thought processes and theory are easier to understand. Adults can also help maintain their fine-motor skills, concentration and listening skills into later life.
Piano lessons for children will focus on learning the fundamentals of the technique of the instrument and learning to read music and rhythm. We suggest beginning piano lessons no earlier than age 4, due to the attention span of the child, as well as the strength they have in their hands for playing. Piano Lessons will offer an excellent introduction to learning music for a child. Music theory and musicianship skills will also be taught during the lessons. Piano lessons are a great choice for introducing the art of music to your child!
