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.
Hello! My name is Larry and I have been playing music for over 20 years. I began my musical journey at a young age and have been fascinated with it ever since. I hold a Bachelor's of Music in Woodwind Performance and a Master's of Music also in Woodwind Performance. I have studied both Classical and Jazz music as well as numerous other genres. Over the years I have performed with numerous national acts and have been involved with several professional groups tha influence my playing and teaching style. I believe that with discipline, practice, and dedication, anyone is capable of being a great musician!
Hello! I’m Nick. I’m a lover of all things music, but I specialize in the guitar. I have played guitar since I was 14 years old, and have been quite passionate about it ever since. I grew up mostly self-taught, and playing in heavy rock bands. Once I started college, I realized that music was definitely my life’s calling, and started pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Classical Guitar Performance. I attended Arapahoe Community College and received my Associates of Arts Degree in 2009. I took guitar with Michael Engberg there for two years and also took fundamentals of music, music business, music technology, and a song writing class. I transferred over to Metropolitan State University of Denver and began my Bachelor’s degree sequence under the wing of Alex Komodore. I graduated from Metro in May 2014 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Classical Guitar Performance, and the experience thus far has been amazing. I love to teach and I love to learn about music as well as people who desire to be musicians. I hope to be able to teach as many people in order to keep the love for music and the arts alive in the community.
I'm an experienced professional guitarist with miles on the road, hours in the studio, and years teaching. I am really friendly and enthusiastic in lessons, and can cater the lessons to you. I can teach you guitar. Anything you want to learn.
I began my guitar studies at the age of 12. A contemporary of the Tarrega School, I have taught and performed regularly as both soloist and ensemblist throughout my career. In 2012, I earned my Bachelors Degree in music performance from the University of Nebraska Omaha while studying with classical guitarist Hadley Heavin. Upon graduation, I was awarded scholarship and teaching assistantship to attend the Lamont School of Music where I am currently finalizing my Masters of Music Performance. During this period, I was among Maestro Ricardo Iznaola’s final students before his retirement in 2015. While the classical guitar retains my primary focus, I have played, performed, studied, and taught many styles of music during the whole of my life.

Children need three main things in order to begin guitar lessons: physical dexterity in their hands, patience and commitment to practice between lessons. With the help of one of our great instructors, some hard work, and daily practice, students can quickly improve to a point where they can play their favorite songs. Parental encouragement also plays a big role in determining a students success.
Young students will benefit by starting off playing on a half size or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. If an older student finds it comfortable enough to do so, they may wish to begin playing on an electric guitar. There are many different student model guitars, which can be purchased for between $150-$200. Additional costs will be incurred for those wanting to play electric guitar, as amplification and cables will need to be bought. Consider that higher quality instruments are easier to play, and will increase the chances of the student liking it.
We recommend that adult students looking to start guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind - such as learning to play a few of their favorite songs. When you start lessons, a teacher will help you unlock the skills required to reach your goals. Keep in mind that you might not be able to start off with the exact song you want to learn - it could take months of study and practice to learn all of the notes and chords required to turn your dream into a reality.
The teacher's in Musika's network plan guitar lessons with the specific requirements of each individual student in mind. During the course of their guitar lessons, students can generally expect to 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 favorite 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!
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.

Lara is highly intelligent and knowledgeable in her profession. She is cheerful and personable, and has established a good rapport with students and staff alike. I have found Lara to be a highly competent, personable, patient, kind-hearted, and deeply caring person who is skilled professionally and interpersonally.

Kevin was such a fun, smart and innovative voice teacher to work with. I had the pleasure of taking lessons with him for over a year and I couldn’t have been more pleased with my time under his training. In just a few weeks I noticed my voice was stronger and I was able to apply his teaching and see the results. He explains his techniques in a way that the student is able to actually hear and feel the changes he is referring to. This allows the student to efficiently practice outside of lessons. Even further, he believed in me and truly cared about my progress. He was always energetic and focused in lessons and was continually surprised how far a song could come in just one hour of his time. Under his teaching I developed a stronger belt in my higher range, learned how to color my voice for different sounds and improved my stage presence. I wholeheartedly trust Kevin’s musical insight and was grateful that he challenged me with a wide variety of songs and styles that I hadn’t considered trying before.

After signing up for lessons with David L. I knew I made the right choice. Just after a couple of weeks I didn't see him as a teacher but as a best friend. There was always a relaxed atmosphere during the lessons. He was very easy to talk to and he really listen to you. If I ever had a question he would answer. He tailors to what ever you want to do in that lesson. David L. is a great teacher and a friend. I totally recommend him for anyone

Stephanie is an excellent voice teacher! Our 10-year-old daughter enjoys her lessons with Stephanie each week. She has an amazing way of connecting with our daughter through music. Stephanie knows how to offer constructive feedback in a positive way that keeps our daughter interested and wanting to learn more. I would recommend Stephanie without hesitation.
Review by Kristin
Ted S. is teaching clarinet to one of my children, and piano to two others. He is extremely knowledgeable, and very encouraging. His teaching methods are keeping my children enthused about their lessons, and without that, you have nothing. Two of my children were taking piano lesson from another teacher for the past year, and not progressing. Ted has been able to evaluate their skills individually, determine what was missing in their music education, and begin again with some early basics they seem to have missed. I am convinced we are finally moving forward, and am very happy about that. I wish I would have made this change much earlier.

"My daughter is 10 years old and has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Dale J. for almost 4 years now. She is progressing nicely. His kind and gentle way make for a very positive learning experience. Mr. Dale J. is encouraging without being harsh or belittling. He is patient and the ideal instructor for my daughter."
Review by Susan
My daughter is extremely happy and comfortable with Rachel, and looks forward to her piano lessons every week. She is a very kind and patient teacher, always using positive reenforcement with my daughter, which makes all the difference in the world to children. We definitely are looking forward to continued piano lessons with her. So glad we found her.
Review by Ginger
Unbelievably Awesome. My daughter is a beginner and has some special needs. Justin is more than patient and helpful while being completely thorough and pushing her (in a good way) to try harder. He is encouraging and teaches effectively. I am very pleased. More important, so is my daughter. Thank you Musika! So grateful we found your service and connected with Justin. We highly recommend him.
Review by Wilma
Gina is very supportive and encouraging. Even though I get frustrated with my progress, she can tell that I've been practicing and reminds me of how far I've come. She challenges me to learn new skills without giving me a piece that I cannot master (with practice). I'm happy that she is my music teacher and look forward to many more lessons in the future.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
