I focus on the student and their learning style. Each student learns differently. If someone is visual we will use more sight reading. If someone is auditory we will use more aural recall. I do integrate all learning styles though. I encourage students to have fun and to be encouraged to try new things. However, I also expect students to practice and maintain discipline.
I play trombone in the Colorado Wind Ensemble, William and the Romantics (a 20 piece big band), and the Mile High Brass Quintet. I teach music at Broomfield Academy.
Fundamentally, I seek to ensure the basics are bulletproof with all my students. Proper breathing and tone production are first and foremost, and I utilize metronomes and tuners exhaustively as they only speak the truth. Long tones, flexibility, articulation, fingers, dynamic control, range, various styles, sightreading & prepared reading, and everything with emotional musical direction. I aim to make our technical fundamental routine muisically engaging by relating each skill to a real life musical situation, and likewise I aim to break down the musical materials into quantified bits that relate to the fundamental skills we will build together via the technical routine so students can relate specific skills to their performances and understand WHY we do them. In my experience this is the best way for me to affect dramatic improvements in an efficient manner, as well as to keep the lessons fun and engaging.
I believe that it is a privilege and an honor to have the opportunity to share in the growth and development of another person's talent and career. I have influenced the careers of many successful singers, actors, and songwriters of various ages and styles, who have have signed big record deals, appeared in major motion pictures and network TV shows like The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, American Idol, the Grammy Awards, Billboard Awards, Dove Awards, American Music Awards, and various shows on Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, WB, and more, and have performed at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and on the Broadway stage in NYC. I started performing music at age 14, and quickly move on to semi-pro and professional status, performing pop, rock, country, folk, and more in various bands and performing groups. After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music and Theater, I joined the cast of Up With People and began a world concert tour, performing on awesome stages, such as the Royal Albert Hall in London. I have performed over 2000 performances at Denver's Heritage Square Opera House, Country Dinner Playhouse, and the Goldenrod Showboat in St. Louis. Over the years, I have studied with several vocal teachers, including famous coach to the stars, Seth Riggs in Los Angeles. My studio is a professional and creative environment with all the neccessary equipment to aid in making it fun and productive.
I have been playing music for 15 years, and teaching for the last 4. I started playing guitar when I was 9 and eventually went on to perform in a number of bands. I later when to college with music scholarships. I graduated CU Denver last year and have been teaching music and performing in the Denver area since.

As a preference, younger students should start off by learning on a half size or three-quarter sized acoustic guitar. If they are able to hold it comfortably, older students could start off using an electric guitar. A brand new student model guitar can be purchased for about $150 to $200. An electric guitar will also need accompanying amplification as well as guitar cables, which will incur additional costs. It is important a student enjoys playing their instrument, so higher quality guitars are recommended as they are easier to play.
Whatever your current ability level, we recommend that students wanting to take guitar lessons have a clear aim in mind. Maybe there is a song you have always wanted to be able to play? Or maybe you want to develop your songwriting skills? Whatever your goals may be, the experienced teachers in our network can help you achieve them with expert knowledge. Whether it be learning to play a sequence of chords, jamming a cool riff, or mastering that guitar solo, developing the required skills and co-ordination can take time. Taking regular lessons and practicing on a daily basis is the best way to achieve your goals.
When a student shows lots of interest in playing the guitar, they can begin learning at the age of 6. Younger students can play on a half or three-quarter size guitar, while kids 12 and older can learn on a full size acoustic or electric guitar. If you students begin learning at a very young age, they do need a minimum amount of hand strength and ability to practice every day!
The teachers in our network create a customized lesson plan for every student, so no two students' lesson plans will be identical. Topics covered during Musika's guitar lessons may include, but are not limited to: learning the notes on guitar, proper fretting, fingering, and strumming technique, how to read music, learning all open chords, how to play barre chords, how to tune a guitar, music theory, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the guitar!
Taking in home guitar lessons saves you time, energy, and money. There is no need to pack up the guitar or amp to take to the teachers' studio, since a qualified, talented teacher can travel directly to your home. We make finding a teacher easy by matching you with a teacher in our network who fits your needs and schedule.

“My son and I have been taking lessons with Lynn for 5 or 6 years now. She is very patient with younger students (& older students having "senior moments"). She is also flexible in her lessons in that if we want to work on theory, jazz, rock, blues, she will cater to our requests.” – Karl B., C.P.A., Aug 2015

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.

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.
Review by Jane A.
I started taking voice lessons from Ali when I was 19 and a sophomore in college. Though I was hesitant to be starting "late", I felt very comfortable with Ali and her teaching style. We identified several key issues that really made a difference and improved my voice technique. It was fun to sing popular, beautiful songs in our recital! If only I lived in Los Angeles, I would still be a student. Highly recommended!
Review by William Klepatsky
Very knowledgeable on every aspect of music theory. I listen to recording artists playing various classical pieces, Dan's playing is much like a recording artist's playing. Always on time. Winning happy personality, a great role model. Puts me at ease when I am playing. Have two friends who hold music degrees, I count him a third, something special about the minds and personalities of good pianists. Thanks Dan.
Review by Maurice Romero
This is the 1st time I've ever taken lessons, and Robert has been a pleasure to work with. I've made quick progress and have enjoyed the process. I'm always listening for those tips that you can't find in a book. I can count on Robert to be strict on the fundamentals and am clear it will make a difference in the long run.
Review by Tuvana
He is incredibly patient and really customizes his teaching style to the child. Both of my children are learning piano with him; they have learned so much and really enjoy the lessons. In fact, my daughter asked to learn another instrument (guitar) with him and is making great progress with that, too.
Review by Cameron D.
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
Review by Timothyfullard
We've only had a few lessons with Elisa, but so far we really like her. She has a lot of great suggestions for solo pieces as well as orchestral music that involves all 3 of my boys, while also including some Christian music that we can play at church. She is very patient in explaining the lessons and encouraging!
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.
